Mass wedding held for dozen poor couples in central Vietnam

Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 17:02 GMT+7

Twelve indigent couples in central Vietnam have had their joint wedding organized by a labor confederation.

Special features like the use of cyclos, or three-wheeled vehicles that have one or two passengers in a seat in the front and the driver pedaling in the back, made it all the more attractive and alluring.

Their joyous mass wedding was held suavely on Tuesday by the Labor Confederation in Thua Thien-Hue Province.

The event was the center of attention throughout the day, as the couples went on a parade around Hue City, Vietnam’s former capital, on cyclos.

Their costumes conjured up the vibes of traditional wedding parties in the country, making it stand out all the more.

This is the second time the provincial Labor Confederation has organized a joint wedding event.

The couples have their marriage officially recorded but they are too financially underprivileged to conduct a wedding ceremony on their own.

For them, such a chance is a one-of-a-lifetime opportunity to realize their far-fetched dream of having a proper traditional wedding party, endowed with blessings from families and friends.

Among the couples this time, one has been living together for 18 years. The others have had children together.
