    Exclamation Wedding Ceremonies.

    I was just reading a threat on marriage, and It brought this question to mind. Does any one know:

    1) ...if traditional Japanese wedding ceremonies wedding ceremonies were as different from ours as I think they were? (I think the probably where terribly different and much more meaningful.)

    2) ...what the traditional Japanese wedding ceremonies looked like and entailed?

    Also, please tell me which way you would prefer to be married and why.
    Just stay close to me.

    I saw one and it was very different. The outfits were more colorful and the bride, groom and those in attendance all sat during the ceremony. It was also open to the public. Performed in front of all the people art the shrine.

    Well. That sounds different enough to me.

    I think that being married in that fashion would be more interesting that what we do in America. Not to put down the American ceremonies or anything. It's just that I think I'd personally prefer the traditional Japanese method.

    Except that half of the weddings in Japan are done in the Western, Christian style. It all just depends merely on what the bride wishes to wear for her wedding: a Western white dress or a kimono. They can wear both a western dress and a kimono, I guess, seeing as how a bride changes her clothes 4 times in a day, and so needs 4 different wedding dresses.

    Where does this money come from? The guests usually pay for weddings in Japan. But this sparks off a vicious cycle where the guests giver money and expect an extravagant wedding, the bride and groom feel this pressure and spend money on extravagance, but then they need more money for the costs so they invite more guests, these guests expect more and more...in the end Japanese weddings are blown way out of proportion. This is probably more the case for rich or famous people though.
