This is my first German wedding that I attend. It was held in the groom’s house. I think the situation is more or less the same like in Indonesia where all the families gathered and helping each other for organizing the wedding.
The wedding started at 4 PM when the mayor came to legalize the wedding. After that, the newlywed makes a toast and cut the cake. The meals are ready at that time, so people just can have dinner whenever they wanted to.
