Buffalo cart for the bride

In Vietnam, most brides are often carried to their grooms’ houses by car.

However, a couple in Nam Dan District in the central province of Nghe An had a unique wedding when the groom carried the bride home on a buffalo cart.

This is the wedding of Dao Van Duc, 21, and Ho Thi Hoa, 23.

Duc was Hoa’s childhood friend.

As Duc is younger than Hoa, he hesitated to show his feeling to Hoa.

Finally, his love overcame his hesitation and Duc proposed to Hoa.

Duc wanted to have an impressive wedding and to make Hoa understand that she is important to him, so he decided to use buffalo cart his family often uses to carry droppings in his wedding.

He decorated the cart with a heart made of coconut palms and embellished with colorful ribbons, balloons and a parasol.

It took Duc and his friends all day to decorate the cart.

On his happy day on March 11, Duc himself led the buffalo and the cart to the bride’s house and carried his wife home under the witness of quite a few local people.

Duc says:

“I could hire a car for my wedding but I felt that it was not necessary and wasteful.

Why didn’t we use what we have?

I feel happy with what I have done and what I have now”
