Miss Surat Visedla and Mr Siwaporn Suworaphun were married at her mother's house in Nong Khai on March 25th, 2000. They both work in Nong Khai. She works in the Revenue Department and he works in the Royal Forestry Department. They now live with the mother.
The day started with offering food to the monks at 6am, followed by the wedding which was in the morning when nine monks attended (the best number ) and the day was rounded off with a party in the evening. Hard work getting married in Thailand.
Isan musicians from another Province, where the groom comes from, played the best Isan music I have heard to date. The men and women also displayed graceful skill in their Thai dancing.
The morning saw 250 people in attendance and the evening was celebrated with 350 people. Contributions totalled 99,929 Baht, which with so many 9s is a very fortuitous number. 5 baht weight of gold and gold bracelets and necklaces were also given to the couple.
