A Cambodian wedding

A Cambodian wedding, following the Buddhist rituals, takes three days and three nights. It costs to the bridegroom family about 3,000 US dollars as February 2011 and that is maybe the minimum number, but arranges can be done between the two families. If you are a foreigner willing to married a Cambodian lady, international standards will be followed 🙂 The wedding ceremonies include religious moments like the blessing of the Buddhist bonzis, singers and musicians are contracted, there is a big dinner party, moments for the families, moments for the friends and guest are expected to let a money contribution inside the envelop they received as invitation. Have you been in a Cambodian wedding? How was it? Have you married a Cambodian? How is a Cambodian wedding in another religion? Are you a foreign woman and married a Cambodian man?
