Wedding SeasonPosted: September 25, 2013
Once the weather starts cooling down, wedding season in Vietnam begins. Actually people get married year-round now, except for the seventh lunar month (because of the heavy rain and its association with a myth about two literally star-crossed lovers), but you definitely see more weddings from October to February. On Tuesday I just went to a wedding of one of my high school friends – my first, actually, because most of my high school friends were already married by the time I got home. Wedding in Vietnam is usually boring for the guests because we’re only there for the meal and a quick toast with the bride and groom, but this one is actually fun, mostly because I got to see my old friends.
I would’ve gladly worn one of my dresses, but my sister insisted that I rescued this closet orphan for her, so I obliged. It’s funny how our outfits kind of match the flower arrangement.
