Wedding Day Two.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Wedding Day Two.

Post by newkidontheblock »

Ceremonies start early.

DJ from last night still asleep in the hammock when the make up started and the next days clothes rolled out.

Image

One of the chickens was sleeping on the decorations and had to be kicked out (sorry already flew away).

Image

The starting even is the grand walk to the brides house. Everyone from the “grooms side of the family” - in my case, fake, provided by the villagers, gather some distance away and march to the bride’s house:

Image

Gifts to the bride are picked up and brought for the walk, including the pig.

Image

Everyone went. Most walked to the line. Some can by moto.

Image

A very long line.

Image

At the head was I and the village MC. And at the very front, the Khmer musicians.

Image

Image

Image

After the grand entrance, comes the introduction of the bride to the groom

Image

Image

Image

The other big event of the day is the tying of string and pelting of seeds for luck.

String is tied by all well wishers.

Image

And the the bride and groom is pelt from seeds from the ? Palm stalk.

Image

Image

Image

Did I mention the photos shoots? Between each ceremony, a new change of clothes and more photos shoot. Day one. 5-6 outfits. Day two, maybe more.

Now onto the wedding dinner. My least favorite part.

I gotta admit, newkid's photo montages are a guilty pleasure of mine.

Pretty cool mate, and don't mind if I do, but I must say that your wife is quite attractive....as a matter of fact, I'm having untoward thoughts as I type this. :thumb:

I get mine from Levi's in Aeon. They're expensive but they fit and last.

Are you talking about the Soriya shop on the 5th(?) floor where they sold clothes and sports gear? I hope not.

Bless
