Preparing for that special day

Preparing for that special day

Rainy season has come to a close, and the dry season is upon us. During this time, our younger generation – especially teenagers who are happily with partners – look forward to marriage. Their relatives and friends have the task of preparing the wedding reception. If you’re ready for marriage, are you also ready to shop for the right dress, make-up, and accessories that suit you?

Here in the Kingdom of Cambodia, some of the younger generation have been showing an interest in becoming modern and turning to the more expensive items. Teenagers are now using modern technology such as mobile phones, motobikes, and cars. They are also buying expensive clothes and jewelry. If these teenagers spend too much time keeping up with modern trends, it can affect both their studies and their safety.

The guests who join the wedding reception also end up spending a lot of money for the sake of their appearance. Now, it is not only women putting money towards a fashionable and updated appearance. Men, as well, have been spending their money on new clothes, attractive hairstyles, and even make-up. They seek to leave an impression of honor and prestige that others at the reception cannot forget.

Today, outdoor photographs are an increasing trend for young couples soon to be wed. Before the marriage, the bride and groom enjoy having a photoshoot in a natural setting. They also invite their guests to take part in the photoshoots, both outside and inside. LIFT finds a hard-working young man who is currently an art director and photographer. He talks to us about his talent when creating new and unique styles for his customers.

Last, but not least, this is the last issue of LIFT I will have the pleasure of serving our readers before I go on maternity leave. I would like to say thank you and goodbye until I come back to LIFT, which I very much look forward to. In the mean time, LIFT will continue to bring you more new and exciting topics with the same quality we have promised to you. I would like to thank of all you for reading and supporting LIFT.

See you next time!
