WW: Happy Wedding Pipit and Agus

Happy wedding, Pipit and Agus

Pipit and Agus, the bride and the groom

Last weekend, we celebrated the wonderful wedding of Pipit, my hubby's youngest sister, and Agus. We went back to Lampung and had a wonderful reunion with our big family and celebrating the unity of two beautiful families. I love it! It's been quite sometimes we didn't have family wedding and everyone got so excited.

Somehow, the wedding was dominated by purple and white, my favorite colors. The seserahan or mahar or the dowry, was also decorated in purple.
I just love them all!

It was really a wonderful day!

My hubby and I ...

Akad nikah, or the signing of the marriage contract, was conducted solemnly.
Akad Nikah itself is the process when the physical marriage contract is signed, and it obviously includes and involves the bride and the groom, their parents or wali (legitimate guardian), designated witnesses, and penghulu or an officiant. During this ceremony, the officiant, usually represented by an Imam and other community leader, delivered a valuable message and recites parts of the Quran to remind us the beauty of marriage and how best to live together. Once this holy ritual was concluded, we had sungkeman, a tradition where bride and groom asked for forgiveness and approval from parents, the elderlies, brothers and sisters. It was usually filled with joyful tears and happiness. Very touchy.

cheers...the bride and the sisters
 The reception or walimah was conducted right after akad nikah.  For this, Pipit the bride and Agus the groom wore traditional Lampungnese costumes, complete with Siger, - the headdress, kebaya and golden bebe or chest cover, Tapis - the hand-woven traditional fabrics adorned with gold threads (here she wore the Songket) and accessories like necklaces (yes, she wore many of them :)), bracelets, rings and even keris or traditional dagger for the groom. They look royal indeed! I love Lampungnese wedding.
