TAIPEI, Taiwan — Fourteen brides and grooms were married at a mass wedding
ceremony held by Indonesian Economic and Trade Office to Taipei (IETO) on Sunday.
The seven couples, all in their 20s or 30s, exchanged their wedding vows in a Muslim wedding ceremony, called a “ijab qobul,” held in the IETO’s office.
The ceremony was held to ensure that the couples’ vows would be recognized in their home country, with all of them receving Indonesian government-certified marriage certificates.
Making the knot-tiers’ happy day even happier were wedding gifts provided by sponsors, including jewelry (as a wedding dowry), saving accounts, free hotel stays, wedding makeup and pre-wedding and wedding photos. [FULL STORY]
