one of the memorable wedding ceremonies that I attended and enjoyed was the
wedding party of my cousin. It was in the year 2007 and I was 21 years
old at that time. I can recall that it was mid-summer and I took 4 days
leave from my university to attend the program.
My cousin Ruby got married and she was the daughter of my eldest
maternal uncle. Among our cousins she was the eldest and she was 24
years old when she got married to a doctor. I was in the wedding from
the very beginning: shopping till the departure of the bride to her
father-in-laws house. The whole house was decorated, we celebrated a
ceremony 3 days long, lots of relatives and neighbors came to
congratulate the bride and they brought some gifts for her as well. The
host prepared several delicious dishes and sweets and everyone wear new
and traditional dresses. Every one enjoyed, sang and danced, the whole
program was recorded and every one cried when the bride left the house.
Yes that was a typical wedding that followed the general traditions and
customs. It was nothing different from the traditional marriages that
are generally performed in most of the part of the country except some
minor tribes and society. If fact we enjoyed the wedding because a
typical marriage ceremony in our country has lots of interesting and
enjoyable parts that people celebrates with boundless joys. We mostly
followed the customs and thoroughly enjoyed the whole wedding program.
sorry to be late!!
