    An Indonesian Wedding

    We went off to an Indonesian wedding this evening, luckily I asked MrsKW first about the availability of alcohol....

    None. Water and icetea only!

    right, dug out the hip flask filled it with whiskey.

    When we arrived we were greeted with half a dozen sign boards (I've seen this at funerals too, never just one) And they all had sponsor signs on them, upon inquiring this is from companies that wish to publicly congratulate the couple. (and get some free advertising I would think)



    The entrance way was then lined with an elaborate arch, and then all their pre-wedding photos.



    Sign in books. and a box for envelope with money.

    The guy is not looking too happy.



    the back of the room had the wedding couple and family on a stage with an MC yelling into the microphone. while everyone else walked around and chatted and ate.





    Here was one food cart, plenty around the room, (no pork though)



    After the wedding toast, the wedding dance, the wedding cutting cake, we had the wedding photo with friends etc.

    Our turn on stage....



    and looking back at the (by now much depleted crowd)

    But you can hardly see them. Should get in real close and take proper clear photos.

    I have some of them also, the idea was not to show their faces on TD.

    How much money is it customary to give at a wedding in Indonesia? In China it depends on how close you are to the couple last wedding I went to I gave 800 rmb.

    yes, very much reminded me of my wedding (and that a picture trhead is overdue) with the only difference that there was alcohol available though the guests did not drink much.

    it was on Saturday night.

    but you right, Iphone it was. tacky it was also IMO. apparently a few weddings do this sort of thing now, but still not the norm.

    KW went to a posh wedding. They vary a lot.
    The poorest I've been to was village jobby. The groom, Agus, was shitting himself.
    I thought he was going to faint a couple of times. The bride, Nia with the nice tits in another thread, was looking sexy as it gets.



    An Australian bloke married a lass from the town just down the road from my old place. They did it a bit better.



    Westerners should avoid using traditional Javanese kit. It just fails and a bastard like me may well put it on a gay dating site.

    Be happy dudes. It's a lot more fun than crying.

    Ner, just hiding a stiffy. You should have seen the state of the lass stood next to me.

    Totally agree about westerners wearing javanese kit, looks wrong.

    Erm, you gonna show us a pic of said young lass, or leave us hanging like a Nawty thread?
