First Thai wedding

Me, Ken and Nung.


Last week I went to my first Thai wedding when my friend Tae married his wife Ice. Though it was a Christian wedding there were still some cultural elements that were interesting. They had the traditional bouquet toss but with a difference, all the unmarried girls, and guys, each took a separate ribbon attached to the bouquet. Everyone pulled at once and the last one attached was the winner.

There was also a lot of singing by whomever wanted to sing a song to the happy couple. There were Korean missionaries there too, who also sang to the couple, and I guess it was down to either them or their predecessors for the family's conversion to Christianity at some point.
