Jakarta - An Indonesian woman who was engaged to a man who died on a Lion Air flight that plunged into the sea has worn her wedding dress on the day they were to have been married.
Intan Syari's fiance, medical doctor Rio Nanda Pratama, was among 189 people who were killed when the Boeing 737 crashed on October 29 a few minutes after taking off from Jakarta.
Syari and Pratama, both 26, had planned to get married last Sunday. Pratama, who had attended a seminar in Jakarta, was on his way back to their hometown in Pangkal Pinang for the wedding.
Syari said Pratama had joked before leaving that if he was late in returning, Syari should take photos in her wedding gown and send them to him.
"We were just joking at that time," Syari told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "He asked me to still wear my wedding gown that he chose for me on our wedding day, put on beautiful makeup and hold a white rose bouquet, take good photos and send them to him."
