       I'm Jessica. I'm one of students from SMA 1 PADANG. Indonesia. Let's me introduce one of folk costumes in Padang. This is the picture of folk costume in Minangkabau, West Sumatera. We wear this for wedding ceremony. The bride uses an accessory on her head, that called “sunting”. The shape of “sunting” used by every bride is not same, it depends on the bride’s wish. “Suntings” are made from brass. The wedding costumes are made from different material, it’s not same for every costume. The bride and bridegroom usually rent this costume. The better material the more money they have to spend.
