Given the broad diversity of ethnic groups in Indonesia, it stands to reason that wedding customs will reflect this diversity. Each ethnic group has different wedding dress (batik, traditional textiles, kebaya) and different marriage ceremonies and customs.

If there's one thing we love here at Brides, it’s a really gorgeous real wedding. Each week we bring you five inspiring stories, all packed with unique details, beautiful dresses, and some of the most unique love stories we’ve ever heard. And while we will never get enough of the flowers and decor, it’s really the two people at the heart of each celebration that draw us in, again and again. After all, it’s the couple that makes each wedding so distinctly unique and personal. So, in honor of the spectacular couples and the weddings they threw, we went through the archives and selected 50 of our favorite real-wedding moments from the past 12 months.
