Foreigner Couple in Fully Cambodian Wedding Clothes

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Would anyone care if a Cambodian couple went to the US to have a traditional Western wedding?

I've seen Cambodian couples getting their photos done on the beach in western white-bride style. All just as silly IMO but it's a free world.

This is awesome :) I see a lot of respect for a culture they obviously love.

What do you reckon he paid the bride's family?

Such white skin wouldn't go so cheap. However she is quite old for marrying and unlikely a Virgin so possibly nothing.

Cambodian women look fine in their umpteen changes of clothing (except for the tons of makeup) but even Cambodian men, much less foreigners, look especially ridiculous dressed up like either a French admiral or an extra from a production of The Pirates of Penzance

It is their freedom if the couple are happy together. I see many couples follow their husband's or wife's vision to marry like Asian or Western culture. It doesn't the matter.
