Have you ever gone to a Padangnese Wedding?

by Lissa, Co-Director, IHF Medan

This week, we got a wedding invitation from one of our local teacher’s sister. We attended the invitation with the teachers and the students as well. When we arrived, we were welcomed by the bride and groom’s relatives.


The custom and theme in this wedding reception was Padangnese. Padangnese is one of the tribes or customs in Indonesia. All decorations were dominated by red and gold colors. The food was so spicy! Even for my Indonesian tongue it was spicy enough.

It was an interesting marriage custom to see. The bride wore a big and heavy crown on her head and made her couldn’t move a lot. After we tasted the food until we were full, we took some pictures with the groom and the bride and wished them the best for their new life together!
