Indonesian marriage

Hi everyone, it's me again.. Long time no post!
I've been busy in these several weeks, all tasks and mid-terms get to hit me very slowly! what a month. But I won't talk about those tired things, last week was good day for one of my best dude, Sogi and the whole of his family. His brother finally get married on Sunday, 31 October in Patra Jasa Building, Jakarta. The culture of special region Yogyakarta was chosen to celebrate the wedding, it such a cultural thing when the groom goes to the day he'd be married, there's many processes before the day they've married, such as the groom walks to the spot light, where there's a box of flowers and in the central of the box, there's an egg purposed to thread the egg on it. It's Javanese culture, very unique, genuine, and strong descent. I'm part of Javanese, my mom came from Semarang, central Java, and we have different way to celebrate our wedding. Otherwise, every culture in Indonesia, have their own ways to celebrate the wedding. Can you imagine, Indonesia is a biggest archipelago country in the rest of the world, which contains more that 17.000 islands and in each part of our nation, it must be a culture exists in there. So, what a wow Indonesia. I do love Javanese culture, it close to the hospitality, etiquette, and more :), ya, all of things are hospitality.

(What a beautiful reception, on that cap, the groom's walking to trod the egg)

(This what I wore on the reception, Yogyakarta outfits, for the girls, it named "Kebaya" traditional costume of Javanese people, the colour is gorgeous, with pattern detailed, and we used "Batik" for the complement)

(It's Gilang, Ardian a.k.a Sogi :P and I are wearing the traditional costume of Yogyakarta, such a capped suit!)
