Mr. Nguyễn Chí Công, the brides’ father, said, before the lunar New Year 2013, an acquaintance match-made Thành Út and Nhẫn.
During the meeting between the two families, Mr. Phan Văn Tường, the groom’s father saw the twin sister of his future daughter-in-law so he expressed his intention of marrying Nhịn for Hoàng Út.
Công consulted other family members, particularly his daughter – Nguyễn Thị Nhịn.
Nhịn –worker of a seafood processing enterprise – agreed to get married with the man of the same age.
To practice thrift, the wedding for two twins was held on April 28.

The wedding of two twins stirred up the region.
Mrs. Phan Thị Danh, 75, said this is the first twin-twin wedding that she has been witnessed in her life.
Seeing the brides and grooms who are exactly the same, many people wonder whether they mistake each other.
Thành Út explained that though they are similar in appearance, but they have specific characteristics in their eyes, smile, etc.
“My husband and I also have private gestures and actions so we cannot mistake with Hoàng Út and his wife,” said Thành Út.
