Indian wedding1 avaIndia is one of those countries with a large variety of wedding traditions, rituals, and superstitions. So, there should be some strict rules as to what wedding dress a bride must wear. And yes, such rules exist. For example, the traditional wedding gown should be of a certain color, certain design, and the bride should wear certain jewelry pieces and makeup. Indian brides look glamorous and beautiful in their wedding attire – practically no Western-style wedding gown can be as awe-inspiring.

But this tradition is not the only one that can surprise and astonish. The Kayan wedding traditions are also rather odd and interesting.

Korean wedding avaMany Asian weddings are much more restrained, traditional, and demure than American or African ones. That’s because of the temperament differences. So some Korean wedding traditions are pretty unusual, but it makes them even more interesting. For instance, Koreans took presenting cash as a wedding gift to a whole new level – most wedding guests actually just give money instead of buying toasters, cutlery, or adorable trinkets. There is even a fixed rate for different guests as to how much money they should give. Let’s see what other wedding traditions are there in Korea.
