Traditional Bunong Wedding: Step 8 of Katis Wedding Ceremony (to be continued to the normal wedding ceremony)

IMG_5770Step 8: Distributing Sausages

This step is conducted on the 3rd day of the wedding ceremony and must include a bamboo basket of sticky rice, 1 jar of wine, 1 blanket, plates/bowls and thread. During this stage the village leaders, elders and parents from both sides make arrangements for the post wedding party at the groom’s parent’s house. It is alsoIMG_5771 an event in which goodbyes are said as the groom’s family leaves the bride’s house and go back home. Parents of both sides are a given a piece of sausage, liver and intestine of the buffalo and one serving of sticky rice while others are only given a piece of sausage and sticky rice, although they can be given extra liver or intestine if this is not felt to be enough. This is a particularly happy time as people can sit down and fully eat their fill and enjoy drinks; as of late, some Bunong people choose not to organize this part of the event but if they do then sausage must be used.
