What is your most memorable culture shock moment when you attended a foreign wedding?
I am very fortunate and privileged to have been invited to weddings overseas.
These are some of my observations:
When I was living in Dili, East Timor. Eating dog meat was reserved for such special occasions. It is a popular delicacy there. I was not too keen to try it though
I also had the privilege of attending weddings in Jakarta. Grand ballroom. Beautiful. Makes the ones in Singapore (my native), looks small. Most of the guests have their meals standing. But there is a small portion of the ballroom cordoned off for VIPs to have their meals seated. I was thankful to be saved a seat on some occasions. But I also was not a "VIP" for other weddings and enjoyed the standing experience mingling around pleasantries with other guests.
Weddings in Thailand provide a very cultural experience too. Can't remember any shockers though
