The wedding cart: a new tradition?

The wedding cart: a new tradition?

9 wedding cart

A wedding is something you have once in a lifetime, hopefully. It is interesting to notice that people are increasingly arranging weddings based on personal preferences and tastes, rather than following tradition.

Look at this picture as an example. Is the new trend of a wedding cart replacing the normal luxury wedding car? Apparently, it is receiving way more attention and is way more fun than the wedding car!

The picture was taken at Battambang’s O’Sraloa Village and posted on Facebook in March. The husband posted the picture just to share with his friends, but it has attracted huge fans and has been shared all over the place.

There are quite a few interesting comments posted about this picture. Phalla Chou said in her comment: “It’s very pretty with the real normal view of Cambodia”.

Kim Hak spotted the funny part of the picture: “It looks so funny . . . look at the face of a standing guy . . .   he is so mean.”

Another user, Saloeng Loor, tried to look for this cart: “I could not find this in Battambang anymore during my trip to this province on Feb 2013”.

The creativity of this couple demonstrates modern Cambodians’  view toward old traditional forms of weddings. It is good that other traditional weddings can be done in such interesting ways!
