(VNF) - The Ho Chi Minh City Young Employee Assistance Centre (YEAC) will organise a mass wedding for 100 disadvantaged couples who work at the city’s numerous factories on September 2nd.

In Vietnam, the wedding ceremony and party have more significance than a marriage certificate. They are often organised in restaurants with the attendance of hundreds of guests — the couple's relatives and friends.

For low-income families, the party is often prohibitively expensive.

In 2000, the mass wedding was organised for the first time for 25 young couples to mark the 25th anniversary of Vietnam's reunification.

The second one was held in 2007 for seven worker couples. Since then, the wedding has been organised annually to honor the beauty of a traditional Vietnamese wedding and the spirit of kindness and sharing.

Most of the couples are low-income workers, people who have been laid off, disadvantaged people belonging to unions and associations, and people with disabilities.

According to Duong Ngoc Tuan, Director of YEAC, the centre has organised weddings for 722 couples in the past 10 years.

This year's weddings is set to take place at Queen Plaza Ky Hoa Wedding & Event Centre in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 10.

Each couple has been provided a wedding table worth of VND 5 million (USD220), two wedding rings, flowers, wine, and photo services, among others.

In addition, each couple will receive one year of free medical check-ups, supermarket vouchers and helmets, among other items./.
