hehe our families decided to joint venture for wedding invitation..so off to Jakarta we went,yahooo!
we bought 2000 cards from the same vendor named Kartu Undangan at Mangga Dua. soo cheap for hard cover cards..no wonder people go to Indonesia for shopping..For my side, we also bought 1000 pcs of wedding favor..something to do with soap and engrave..sangat berbaloi-baloi..
Extra info when you go to Jakarta, make sure you hire Pak Supir aka driver to bring u around the places as the roads are very complicated..u might get lost..below i listed few places and their specialties that may catch your interest..ask me if you want to know more :)
Mangga Dua - wedding cards but you must really ask the people around they just put cards into boxes..wedding favors and bekas hantaran also available
