chickpea jelly Truly a unique wedding. Not only because of the groom’s effort to fly in from Ho Chi Minh City, the bride’s effort to fly in from Hanoi, friends from all over the world to fly back, but also many other interesting things.
The bride is a lecturer in a big university in Hanoi. The groom is a photographer in Ho Chi Minh City. Both are successful in their jobs.
His parents are middle-aged and he has many friends. There are also many relatives on both sides of the family. If they are married in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, there will be thousands of guests, as many weddings have been held over a long period of time. But he did not choose to marry like this.
They want to organize a wedding that is solemn yet gentle, deep, traditional yet apt for modern times. The wedding had no “processions” of cake cutting, pouring wine, shooting confetti, especially without “one hundred percent zoo” and loud singing that made it impossible for guests to talk.
Totally agreeing with the couple’s vision, their group of friends decided to have a very low-key yet meaningful wedding, very traditional without any frills, luxurious without much expense. And they came up with a very unique scenario: Bonnie jelly wedding.
The bride’s name is Phuong Thao, which means scented grass. The groom’s name is Hoang Giang, which means big river. He put them together, reminiscent of the fragrant grass by the river. Both love Hue, they have many memories with this romantic city.
He decided to get married there. There is a legend that being the origin of the river, a species of fragrant grass is found here, hence the water is fragrant. And the name of the river flowing through the middle of the country is called Huong Giang-Fragrant River.
A species of scented grass at the headwaters of Huong Stream has been identified by botanists as bony jelly. It is a herbaceous plant with a special aroma, its scientific name is acorus gramineus, A priceless medicinal herb, a cure for diseases.
The image of a bony jelly at the edge of the water has been designed by a group of youths as a wedding logo.

wedding should be a happy day
The authors of the script “Wedding Jelly Bone” are a group of young people who are passionate about cultural studies, namely Hiu Van Ngu – Cultura Phish.
The image of “bone jelly by the water” is the idea of Luc Pham Quynh Nhi, coordinator of a Binh Dinh girl Hieu Van Nguy. The manager of the implementation team is Ha Thuc Duc Tung, a Hue guy working in Ho Chi Minh City.
The art director is Yuyen Phuong and the wedding art designer is Josh Trombley. They are also a young couple.
They realized that the wedding that takes place in their country today is no longer the traditional wedding of the old Vietnamese people, nor is it the modern wedding as in the world. Complex rituals, heavy offerings, lots of money are spent. Bright colours, loud noises and full of alcohol.
“Wedding is a fun day, but why does everyone have to be tired? Therefore, we want to organize a wedding that is not so tiring. A wedding that is very traditional but yet very modern, so light That it brings life. Deeper meaning,” Quynh Nhi said.
And they, and some young people sympathetic to the idea, jointly staged “Bonnie Jelly’s Wedding” from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Hue.
Upon hearing the young people’s performance, Poet Vo Que – the president of the Ca Hue Chamber Club – felt very excited about “Bonnie Jelly’s Wedding”. He and the Hue Singers performed the music at that unique wedding.
The poet said: “I am very surprised by the deep and responsible thoughts of these youth. They are young but think very old, act very young and creative!”
Hieu Van Ngu was established in December 2020 with the role of an intermediary between academia and the public. The group consists of young people with multiple specialties (pedagogy, communication, IT, accounting, painting) who have an advantage in transforming cultural heritage into products suitable for contemporary life.
Outstanding projects of Hiu Van Ngu: Hat Boi 101, Phong Hoa Cai Vinh, educational programs, and programs implementing cultural and heritage elements such as “husband jelly wedding”.
