Sawin has joined in weddings with his friends to wish the new couples good luck, good health, good happiness and success in their lives and have prosperous businesses inside the household. Moreover, all the wedding ceremony invitations are faced the most important to keep our friend connections in the society. Friends could bring us the bad freedback of things if s/he thinks only short time, self-consideration without thinking about the friends’ absentia, and not consider about real reasons and matters especially s/he is careless and focused on self-benefit. Friends could bring us the good things because s/he never thinks about the appearances, races, belief, religions, properties, the absentia at wedding ceremonies and self-benefits, but the good friends think about hearted feelings the attitudes towards their communications. Good friends always focus the real reasons and never mind if his friends did not join his weddings. Good friends make us feel hopeful and satisfied of what passed away. Good friends only think positively even if their friends have made mistakes. There were also other weddings that Sawin did not mentioned because they were too long time.
In sum up, the wedding attendances are very significant as mentioned above due to we have just known other people and talking to them so excited. Traditionally in Cambodia, wedding attendances usually make the honorary guests to bring their friends to join the ceremony with them.
