11 beautiful weddings that show off Indonesia’s unique cultures

It's all about golden headpieces, jasmine, and batik.

Indonesia is blessed with the luxury of its cultures. There are varieties of different cultures scattered in every corner of this country and every single one of them has its own unique and beautiful traditions. The cultures and heritage represent their identities and pride, which they highly regard in their life. And what else could be the best way to display the cultures apart from the wedding?

My people always said; ‘In your wedding, you are the King or the Queen of the day.’ I never truly believe this until I saw an Indonesian wedding. The groom and his bride dressed up all in an exquisite set of traditional clothing, embellished with golden jewelry and dangling jasmines from head to toe. There are more than thirty different cultures in Indonesia, and these are some examples of it:

1. The happiest day for this Solo couple!

2. The fierce warrior and warrioress of Jogja.

3. These golden Balinese headpieces are stunning!
