In the multicultural world we live in it is more and more likely that you will attend a wedding that from a culture other than your own. These weddings can often be a wonderful showcase and time of celebration of other cultural rituals and customs.
Have you been to a wedding from another culture and what did you like about it?
All weddings are lovely no matter what their cultural orientation. The reasons that weddings take place touch your heart, the ceremony, the ritual, the decoration, the money spent, the photos taken are all just trimmings.
I have been to a few big Chilean weddings (with 500 people attending) and they definitely know how to party. We danced until dawn, with hundreds of crazy hats introduced onto the dance floor at 1am, and they even served soup around 3am to keep everyone going. Definitely a lot of fun and highly recommended.
IN Nov '95, we went to a wedding in K.L. for a work friend of my husbands. The 1st part of the wedding was held in a very large hall, holding about 200/300 people, where only vegetarian food was served. For some reason we were placed at a table right down the front, in front of the wedding couple who were sitting on a stage. We really thought the rest of the wedding party should have been sitting at the front, not the 9 visitors from Australia! The following evening, a big party with only about 100 people was held at the brides parents house. We didn't arrived until 10.30, (3 hours late) because our taxi drivers got lost, but the catteries were still standing behind the food tables, waiting for us all to turn up!
Sorry...then in 2014, 65 of us flow to India from Sydney Au for my nephews wedding. He was marrying a lovely Indian girl. The wedding was held over 3 evenings at different locations! Luckily I knew in advance this was gong to happen, so I had 3 different outfits to wear. 2 I bought from home, & 1 I had made up over there. It was all beautiful. Most of us had a week there before the wedding, then when everyone else went home (& back to work) we stayed on in Bangalore, for another 2 weeks, just chilling out!
