Weddings of Vietnamese in the 80s Tin ảnh

(09:26:26 AM 10/02/2014)
( - In the 80’s and 90’s, grooms carried brides who held flowers and whimpered on bicycles and motorcycles to their home. Wealthy families rented cars to pick up brides.

At that time, children often sang their song: "The bride and groom/ wear bamboo baskets on their heads/ Going through the bridge/ Their bamboo baskets fall down to the river/ The bride cries/ The groom smiles" and ran after the couple to look at their faces whenever a bride procession passed by.


For a fresh look at the wedding, the groom was often made up. White face, red lips and hair parted at the middle were the popular image of the groom at that time.
