Probably like elsewhere in the world, there is an upper middle class that is able to celebrate their wedding in a more westernised way.
Our hotel (Summit Parkview) in Yangon proved to be a popular place to hold wedding receptions.
Similarities: the white wedding dress, photographer and videographer. Every guest is bringing a present (or money I think) all of which are collected at the hotel entrance.
Differences: Unlike in my country there is ahuge picture of the celebrating couple. The reception lasts only for 2 hours and I think it doesn't include meal but just drinks. There can be receptions every 2 hours on busy days
