A bride and groom from the Vietnamese north central province of Nghe An parade their wedding news on a two-wheeled cart pulled by a motorbike, in a lot of flower decorations and amid children’s fanfare. Family members walk along.
Wedding vehicles are used in Vietnam, where many traditions are still highly partriarchal, when the husband relatives come to the in-laws to pick up the bride (rước dâu
) and bring her into their family as a new member. It is usually followed by a big party.
