Weddings in Tibet still have a lot of traditional rituals and customs that are being strictly followed by people. And in general, a wedding in Tibet differs so much from what most of us are familiar with that it’s exciting to witness such an unusual event. For example, there are no sheer white wedding gowns, no official I do’s, and no wedding bouquets. Instead, the bride and groom often meet each other for the first time on the 2nd day of the wedding celebration, wedding gifts are displayed for everybody to see, and envelopes with money are opened in front of the guests, with numbers listed in a notebook.
