Model Answer:
One of the memorable wedding ceremonies that I attended and enjoyed was the wedding party of my cousin. It was in the year 2007 and I was 21 years old at that time. I can recall that it was mid-summer and I took 4 days leave from my university to attend the program.

My cousin Ruby got married and she was the daughter of my eldest maternal uncle. Among our cousins, she was the eldest and she was 24 years old when she got married to a doctor. I was in the wedding from the very beginning, shopping till the departure of the bride to her father-in-law's house. The whole house was decorated, we celebrated a ceremony 3 days long, lots of relatives and neighbours came to congratulate the bride and they brought some gifts for her as well. The host prepared several delicious dishes and sweets and everyone wore new and traditional dresses. Everyone enjoyed, sang and danced, the whole program was recorded and everyone cried when the bride left the house.

Yes, that was a typical wedding that followed the general traditions and customs. It was nothing different from the traditional marriages that are generally performed in most of the part of the country except some minor tribes and society. If fact we enjoyed the wedding because a typical marriage ceremony in our country has lots of interesting and enjoyable parts that people celebrates with boundless joys. We mostly followed the customs and thoroughly enjoyed the whole wedding program.
