  • Description

    Taiwan brides gathered together for a collective weddirgy over the weekend (20 May) in amass ceremony attended by some 600 relatives.

    The ceremony was provided free of charge for the forty-six couples, and the City of Taipei government footed the bill for the auditorium and the registrars.

    The idea for the mass wedding came from Premier Chiang after complaints had been raised over the high cost of getting married in Taiwan.

    Similar ceremonies have been held in other Asian countries during the last five years.

    So, for forty-six brides and forty-six grooms, as well as the 600 weeping relatives, it was a collective "I do" before the crowded reception afterwards.
