Today I went to a Balinese wedding. The groom was from Bali and the bride from Japan. When my friend left a message for me at my hotel saying he would pick me up at 8:30 I was very surprised. Who gets married at 9 a.m.? But I guess it is an all day ceremony. The morning rituals concern themselves with cleansing the couple to get married, then there is a break for 1-2 hours. The actual joining of the couple takes place at approximately 1 or 2 p.m., depending on when the priest has time to come back! Then, in the evening there is a party.
