Our Wedding Story

Finally! Proof that we got married! Not that you didn’t think we’re married. Right? Right. I know, I know, we act too happy to be married! Simon must be Martina’s gay roommate, brother, or best friend. Nope. We’re very happily married! Now, we’re not gonna show you all of our wedding pictures…since I’m sure our family and friends wouldn’t appreciate their photos being put up online, so here’s a few of us, along with our wedding story.

Umm…what else should we write in this blog post, really? We pretty much said everything we could say about the wedding. At least, I think we did. If there’s anything we missed, ask us in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer.

Oh! We didn’t give a moral to all of this. Grand moral here: don’t be a bridezilla. Simon here. Martina’s bridesmaids didn’t all dress in the exact same outfits, she told them “blue for the maid of honour (her sister) and chocolate brown for everyone else, pick a dress that looks good on you”. Who cares if everyone’s dresses didn’t match?! They looked rocking in the dresses that they picked out! We had an uneven bridesmaids to groomsmen ratio. Who cares?! We had a friend design our invitations and we printed them at a Kinkos’ Printer in Etobicoke. Who cares?! Martina’s photography teacher from High School took our wedding photos, not a thousand dollar photographer. We feel like the details of a wedding event aren’t as important as just being happy to get married, you know?

We know that people often get caught up in the details of the wedding day party, rather than what the wedding day represents: the beginning of the rest of your lives together. The most important thing about getting married is marrying the right person and communicating for the rest of your lives! A lot of people ask us if we fight, and while we do get into disagreements, we never fight yelling and screaming at each other. Communication and making an effort to understand your partner is the key to a fight free relationship. There is no point of holding things back and then blowing up a month down the line because you didn’t bother telling your partner that something upsets you. But, for example, we’ve learned that both our styles of thinking and expressing our opinions are different. Martina needs to burst out what’s on her mind right away in order to express her thoughts, and after venting out all her ideas she comes to a final conclusion, while Simon tends to think about things quietly for a couple days before he brings something up. Different ways and different times of expressing our opinions, it took a couple years of marriage to understand that about each other, BUT, we now understand that so there is no misunderstanding or fighting when that occurs. Even though we’ve been married for over five years, we feel like we’re still dating. Always giggling and excited to see each other.

If there is any advice we can give people dating or getting married it’s to never take the other person for granted. You aren’t dating or married to an enemy, it should be a person who is always rooting for you. A person who likes you makeup free, overweight, cranky, emotional, or depressed. Remind yourself that you’re always in the wooing time period, so buy them random flowers, make them a mix CD, leave them a sweet note, send them a sappy text message, drop by their work with a surprise snack. We feel like life is really short, and you never know what’s going to happen, so don’t forget how awesome it is to be loved or to love someone else.

Oh: and delicious cupcake towers. Cheaper and much more delicious than wedding cakes. You heard it from us. :D

  2. So one thing I don’t understand about kpop is that it seems like there’s a new hit out every week unlike American music where it seems like we are listening to the same songs for months on end. Can you give some insight on this?

  8. You guys have a very interesting & unique wedding. I think the balloons is a great idea. It looks unique & a little fantasy like (LOL imagine the candles floating in Harry Porter). The poems is just sweet. Love the cupcake tower – everyone should have cakes that they actually want to eat. Such a memorable wedding. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Having heard your wedding story, and reading this, you two remind me a bit about my parents’ point of view regarding marriage and relationships. My mom and dad celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary earlier this summer, and have never, to my knowledge, had any doubtful occurences around their relationship. Surely enough, life is not filled with roses and pink clouds, and they have been arguing in their lives, but while practically all their friends have at some point gone through dirvorces, they’ve been stuck like glue.

    OK,, maybe not too true, since mom did get mad enough at him to throw a wooden spoon at his direction once (without aiming at him), but well… he did work a bit too much to be with us that year, and she soon got quite fed up with it. But that is, to my knowledge and memories, the worst fight they’ve ever had.

    With this written, I wish the two of you another 30 years (as I believe you said a while ago you celebrated 5 years), like my parents have. Because no matter what people say, some relationships do work until death do you apart. Or at least for more than 35 years.

  17. I’m totally with you guys as far as wedding cakes go.. most times they are bland white cake. My husband and I chose spice cake with cream cheese frosting for ours.. first cake that didn’t have any leftovers. That totally made me sadface cause I was hoping to eat spice cake slices for the next week ;D

  19. What a memorable wedding story and I think you guys provide good advice on marriage. Your wedding sounds exactly the way I would want mine….not too many frills style with personal touch. I have been to a destination wedding in a castle in Europe…which was very beautiful, but I seriously could not understand how they spent so much money on one day event…totally not my ideal wedding. But as they say, different strokes for different folks. Thanks for sharing Martina and Simon, you both looked beautiful and dashing on your wedding day!

  21. Are Korean students really conservative? Do they interact a lot with the opposite sex? Where I’m from (Australia), I’m comfortable about making dirty jokes with my friends of the opposite sex. Is that the case in Korea or they tend to not talk about these things?

    Also, in my future wedding, I will be stealing that candy idea. It's genius. Plus, everybody in my family has a sweet tooth, so I know it would be a hit :P

  33. A nice cozy wedding at a low price AND free swag? Y’all were BALLIN’! xD

    I’ve been in two weddings as a bridesmaid, and both of my friends were far from being Bridezillas and also allowed us to pick our own dresses as long as the color matched. Well, ok, so in order to match colors they had to be dresses from the same company, but that made it even easier, in my opinion. The outfits were pretty much the only things “demanded” of us, and that relieved so much pressure on people. It pays to be friends with those who are so nice and lax because they’re likely to stay the same way when it’s wedding time. :3

  43. Yeah, so I’m totally putting that last paragraph up on my fb wall<3
    Seriously, couples need to watch your videos for an example of what marriage and love actually is. It's really sad that I see people everyday, some of them twice your age, who fight and bicker and say stuff about the other person behind their back(and when I say people I mean my relatives -.-). I hope that when I'm in a relationship, it can be as great and as wonderful as yours, and I hope all of us Nasties get to watch you guys in love and happy together for many many years to come :)

  49. <3
    we got married when I was 18, so almost everyone I knew was against it. My in-laws arranged most of it since we had it in his country. I chose the wedding cake (though they screwed up the flavor and cake topper), the church, and the wedding dress which I had custom ordered from china (2 grand dress for 200… yay!)

    but between the wedding and reception, we went to some colonial ruins for wedding pictures… and during the last black and white photo, I felt pricking on my leg. Being from a family of photographer, I ignored it thining it was just fresh cut grash poking me too much, and smiled for the last photo. *snap* photo taken, I got up as it started to burn, only to realize I had a whole nest of black fire ants crawling all over my legs.

    7 years married, with a 3 year old little girl now… I look back on that and laugh (as does my husband since it's caused me to be VERY jumpy around little black ants)

    What matters is the love poured into the marriage, not the money ;) Glad to see you guys give modesty a whole new spark! <3

So many people look at us confused and ask “how do you guys not get sick of eachother?!” and “how do you guys never fight?!”, but we are just best friends and can never imagine being apart from each other! I can only hope we will be as adorkable as you two in the coming future!

  57. Your wedding sounds perfect. Intimate and simple, which I want. Yes, some people get so caught up in wedding details that they forget what a wedding is actually about. And you two are just so cute!!

    Oh my bf and I are kind of similar to you two. We’ve been together for 3 years but before that we spent so much time together and we will get giddy seeing each other now. Also, I agree with communicating and understanding where the other is coming from. We never had a screaming match… we like to talk things out; however, I’m like Simon, I need to be by myself with time to think things through before talking about it.

    No I’m not gay; Chris is short for Christine but being close to my bf, watching soccer together, watching anime together and so on; we get that a lot from people who just see our names and the fact that I call him hyung rather than “oppa” :))))
    We always make up after having a disagreement in like an hour keke

  60. wow, i like how your outlook on how a wedding should be like is so different yet unique and special! you found a way to use what you have and make ends meet. lol, that’s a very good idea Simon. “purposely” booking a x-numbered guest room to avoid inviting more than you can feed guests. my uncle John had 600 or 700 ppl at his wedding. all of which were friends we’ve never heard about. our family altogether was 30-50 something ppl. a cupcake tower, oo and candy to scoop and the decorations. lol, Martina stealing the peonies! you guys are too funny!! im happy to hear you guys as a happily married couple. we dont see many couples like you these days. all short-term relationships or divorces. the divorce rate in the U.S. is 50%. wowzers!

    how long ago when you were married? maybe Kpop wasn’t as big as it was these years but otherwise, it’ll be cool to have kpop songs to dance to. hehe. i hate to make this statement but when one is poor and has gone through a lot, wonderful ideas and things happen.

  71. Your wedding sounds really awesome! I totally agree with what you said about the meaning being more important than the details of the celebration.

    As for my question, while on the subject of marriage:
    I’ve seen in many dramas and also heard elsewhere, that Korean people tend to get married before they’re thirty, but at the same time, you guys have said several times that you are young to be married in Korea. Is there really such a short time frame in Korea when you should get married, for example 28-30 years old, as opposed to Western countries where you can get married at pretty much any age? Also, is it frowned upon to not get married, either to stay single or live together with a partner without getting married? And finally, what do Koreans generally think about divorce and/or getting remarried?

    This actually ended up being several questions instead of one…. If you answer just one question, I’ll be happy ^^

    4 years ago
    • Recent Korean news said more and more young people are delaying the marriage or not planning the marriage until they get financially settled. A lot of young people in Korea are struggling financially. and some of them don’t want to get married cos they just don’t have the same idea about marriage as the older generation. Marriage has become our own decision, an option not an required part of life. No more K-drama in the reality.

  72. Wow, that sounds freakin’ amazing :p I actually agree with the whole small wedding situation… my family is HUGE and I haven’t talked to most them in maybe 10 years except for my close family because I’ve lived far from home most of that time. So honestly, I really don’t want to pay for anyone I’m not close with to go to my wedding…

    My bf and I will probably get married in Vegas… but not one of the cheap ones… probably at one of the nice hotels, they have decent packages for small weddings with lots of different settings ;) So yeah, i’d like to keep it to maybe 30-35 ppl… it’s usually cheap to fly to Vegas and then we can have dinner at nice restaurant hopefully ;)

  82. Great to hear! The world is lacking happy married couples, right? Especially in media!!! I hope we didn’t sound condescending about the whole matching bridesmaids thing, I know lots of people who were NOT Bridezillas and still managed to pull off weddings with awesome details. Gah, I just realized how that could have been interpreted after I wrote it. :

      Don’t really, didn’t sound like that at all. We did similar thing… I had my 2 bridesmaids choose their own dresses and didn’t really even see them until a few days before the wedding, and it still all came together well.

      • It really is emotional. How did you dance to that song? I would have cried (ugly-cried) if I ever dance to that song in my wedding. It’s too…amazing. lol

  85. My question! I am going to B1A4’s first concert in December (a’ldfkgj;dklgj’lkd) because they conquered my heart even though I’m no longer a teenage girl. Well, the teenage girls are what I’m worried about. Their fans seem to be largely elementary to middle-school girls (my 3-6th grade girls LOVE bilasa!) and I am kinda concerned for my life. So the question is, how does one survive through and enjoy a KPop concert / hordes of screaming fangirls? (I’m probably bigger than them but they’re more numerous!) Thank you guys. ^^

    • We always wear earplugs to every concert we go to, you can buy them at any convinience store in Korea. Also, buy some glow in the dark bracelets or buy some kpop stuff (like the fan glow sticks) because you will feel sad and empty to not be able to wave something in the air. :( You’ll survive as long as they know you’re a fan! Hahaha! Have fun!!!

  86. simonandmartina i hope you could read this!

    okay, since both of you are always together 24/7 nonstop. i wonder what will you do if one of you is not around. or if you get a mission like in a variety show. for example, martina goes to army while simon becomes a house husband. i wonder what will you feel. i wonder how hilarious would it be for the to of you without your partner. hmmm…….

    • We actually react very poorly to being separated. Christmas shopping is the WORST. The beginning of the day is like, “YAY! Let’s meet up tonight after we’re done!” but as soon as we leave each other for an hour we start sadly text messaging…”I saw this funny sign but you weren’t here to talk about it…” “I saw this great coffee shop you’d like” “my hand is cold without you”. Oh man, we’re so sappy! O____________0

        Hehe.. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 10 years (we are both in our late 20’s) and we are exactly like you guys – my boyfriend is also very “unmanly” and people often mistake us for friends/siblings and him being gay. We are also very much into “childish” hobbies that we both share, we love racing each other in Mario Cart, playing with pokemon cards and taking care of our guinea pigs :)

        As to the separation thing: People here in Denmark think we are pathetic because we react so poorly when being separated, someone literally told me to stop texting my boyfriend so often when I was away for a few days with school (I only wrote him like once every few hours – I could have been much worse!!! XD ). I think its because most couples here aren’t “best friends”, they are very grown up about their relationship and everything revolves around work, sex and money – they really don’t share a lot of things besides those three.

        Anyway, we hope to live in Tokyo one day, and if we stop by Korea I hope we run into you guys!! ^_^
