40 Myanmar Traditional Dress for Wedding Day
In Myanmar society, a husband and wife can announce their marriage simply by letting people from seven houses on either side of the wedded couple’s house know about it. While some couples do start their married life like that, most people – and brides especially – usually want to celebrate their wedding ceremony grandly among their community. This requires much preparation, and the bridegroom-to-be will need to be strong if he wants to keep up with his bride-to-be, who will likely want to be involved in every little detail before the big ceremony. At the same time, a host of other people will be making decisions and working to ensure a happy start to wedded life: Parents, elders, officials, monks, astrologers and even spirits each have important roles to play in traditional Myanmar weddings.
