    Traditional wedding ceremony

    by skootter01 Written Jul 28, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the traditional part of the wedding ceremony. Unfortunatel I ran out of film and missed some really great pics. But here you can see the bride and the food laid out on the table.

    After this the groom enters and they do some bowing to the respective families. They also make some toasts and then the groom carries the bride out of the room on his back.

    If you get a chance, you should go and see this sometime. It is really very interesting.

    Inside the Wedding Hall

    by skootter01 Written Jul 28, 2003

    This is a photo of the inside of a typical wedding hall. The best way to describe it is "Las Vegas meets Korea." It is so bright inside you are almost required to wear sunglasses.

    In this pic, my friend Brenda (in purple) is singing to her friend who is getting married.

    Wedding Halls

    by skootter01 Written Jul 21, 2003

    Wedding halls are very large and extravegant buildings where "western-style" weddings are held. In reality, the only thing similar to the weddings back in the US is that there is a bride and a groom.

    Inside these buildings are several large rooms laid out with a red carpet down the middle and seating for the respective families. Overhead is at least one, and usually several, enormous crystal chandeliers and enough extra lighting to make Vegas jealous.

    Along the side wall is a hydraulic "carriage" that always reminds me of Cinderellas carriage. This contraption is used to carry out the bride and groom, above the heads of the audience along the wall. Of course, it is just as glimmering and shiny as everything else in the room.

    After the wedding, the new couple heads to a back room where traditional ceremonies are held. Here, they have to change clothes and get into traditional dress. I was lucky enough to be invited back to watch, but unfortunately I was out of film.

    So if you have a chance to go to a wedding here, it's worth a look. Just remember that gift-giving is usually money and is returned to you when you get married...
