HANOI – 18 couples were organized by the Hanoi Youth Union to follow a new lifestyle at the flower garden of Ba Kieu temple, Hoan Kiem district, on October 15.
The mass wedding of 18 couples began with an incense offering ceremony in front of the statue of King Ly Thai To, on the morning of October 15.
Since Directive 11 was issued by the Hanoi City Party Committee in January 2013, there have been at least two mass weddings organized by the Youth Union. In 2013, 10 young couples held a wedding ceremony at Thinh Liet Primary School, Hoang Mai District. Four years later, the wedding for 20 young couples following a new lifestyle and the “Golden Wedding” for 20 couples of old men and women living happily for 50 years or more took place at Bach Thao Park, Ba Dinh District.
In 2004, the first mass wedding in Hanoi was held with 30 couples, including a couple over 70 years old.
After the incense offering ceremony, the sponsor will give wedding rings to the couples and take wedding photos around Hoan Kiem Lake. Couples will wear traditional Ao Dai at the wedding ceremony.
Nguyen Duc Tien, Standing Deputy Secretary of the Youth Union, Chairman of the Vietnam Youth Union of Hanoi, said that this wedding ceremony is an activity to summarize 10 years of implementing Directive No. Interior.
