Okay folks! Today i am going to blog about three weddings I’d recently attended– Singaporean Indian, Taiwanese and South Korean. I’m 25 this year, and soooo many precious people around me are starting to get married; so I have decided to blog about it to spread the joy!~~ ❤ This traditional cake picture is for my sister’s wedding… 🙂
…next month, Thank GOD!! 😀 At least I can take a simple break from this attending-wedding frenzy! 😀
First up…the Magnificent Indian Wedding!
The above is a really smart idea: A guest book which has your photos and comments!! 😀 They take your photo instantly, right before you write your words of blessings for the new couple. We took our photos before we entered the hall.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Indian weddings!!! They are so colourful and happy and filled with blessings. Most of the guests are dressed really in colourful saris and all, and everywhere were eye candies 😀 And as compared to the Chinese weddings, they are efficient. Basically our wedding feast has this time period of 6.30-9.30 when you can drop by anytime to give your blessings to the new couple. Dinner is served ANYTIME within this period. Yes, you got me right, anytime! They will arrive at 7pm, and then everyone will eat first, and then queue up to take photos with them. Look at the queue! 😀
They have food for vegetarian and non-vegetarians! Mad yumms!
I just feel so happy for my neighbour!~ They are super compatible.
Yep! Some of the really pretty furnishing in the hall. 🙂 And Nik and I love the following pic:
…The magnificent, efficient photographer!!! He just held two professional cameras with different lens on his side, so that he can switch whenever he wishes!! 😀 😀 😀
Next Up is the Taiwanese Wedding~~ ❤ This girl is really special to me even though we are not close. Okay sounds strange, but super long story. She is like a God-ordained sister.
But yes!!~~ She had her wedding in a super rustic and traditional church!!! Very nice feel to the whole occasion.
Sighs! So many pretty flower balls ❤
Then there is the night event, where the theme is VIDEO GAMES. Can you freaking imagine it??? We were dining to the Mario di-di-di-di-di music when he jumps up and down. 😀
Congrats once again, Tinx!~~ 😀
Haha I love this picture ❤
Okie last up for the post: Korean Unnie Shinji’s Wedding.
*wish for Unnie: Make a baby soon! He’s gonna be soooo cute!!!
The pretty hall where they got married ❤ The whole ceremony lasted for 30 minutes only!! impressive no?
I think it is only the Chinese people– yea, all over the world– who will drag it until 5-6hours.
We were given this really cute ticket to collect our lunch after the ceremony. THE SOUP IS REALLY NICE!!! I’d never tasted such heavenly pork soup in my whole entire life. No wonder they say that in any wedding celebration, soups are a must. 😀
Oh yes, and alcohol are a must too, look at how much soju we had. 😀 Check out who’s the reddest of them all.
Haha, me and the bride after she changed into her traditional costume. 😀 The basket is from me! With love from all the JAL scholars, sending their congratulatory messages to unnie ❤
Anyway I am just super happy for unnie lah ❤ 😀 Teared so much during the wedding. She deserves her happiness 😀 😀 😀
Some things to note about weddings wherever you are:
(¯`•.•)♥ Check the custom first ok! For finns it is ok to give Kitchen Knives. Technically speaking, yes it is a good idea, because it is practical! Food is important to any marriages, and knife cuts food so it just makes sense! BUT! For Chinese ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD, It is a booboo! There is a saying in Chinese/Japanese/Korean that knife cuts ties and bonds, so you do not give terrible knives to the newly weds!~
(¯`•.•)♥ Check the dress code too. Some places? No black at all. Black is a sinister colour.
(¯`•.•)♥ Taiwanese in particular believes in no knives, shoes, watches, fans as presents for weddings. They all have their negative symbolism so let’s not mess with it.
I think that should be all. What do you guys think of weddings? Tell me in the comments!~
Wow I never thought it is so tiring to photoshop all the photos and BLOG! Kudos to ALL credible bloggers!~~ ❤ ❤ ❤
