A Traditional Indonesian Royal Wedding!

The youngest daughter of the reigning Sultan Hamengkubuwono X of Indonesia got married over the weekend in a stunning traditional Javanese ceremony at Penepen Mosque in the Royal Palace of Yogyakarta — and the entire three-day event was live-streamed! The extravagant affair included a horse and carriage ride, a ceremonial bathing ritual, flower girls carrying peacock feather fans, and several stunning outfit changes. See all the incredible photos below.

The bride and groom are both bathed in a ceremony called “Siraman” which represents purification. During the ceremony, the bride’s mother bathes the couple in water in a room filled with flowers.

During the Dahar Klimah ceremony, the couple feeds each other rice, eggs and meat and then sip sweet tea together, which represents the couple sharing their possessions with one another.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
