Thai Wedding

During my first week in Thailand I was staying at a Hotel that hosts weddings so I got to poke around a bit. It was quite interesting to see the different styles and of course the humongous fake cake! One morning I got to witness the tradition of the groom’s family bringing offerings to the bride’s family. There was an enormous procession of people who approached the hotel. The bride’s family was waiting at the door to receive the groom and his large entourage complete with drums. Family members of the bride were staked out in different areas of the hotel and the groom had to greet and provide offerings to each of them before he could see the bride. It was wonderful to watch.
