As of last month, the Bank of Korea started hosting weddings for their staff.
"I had to spend hours explaining why the bride's waiting room had to look nice," You Hyoun-joo, a consultant hired to help prepare the auditorium for weddings, told reuters.com. You stated the staff of the bank had "little clue what to do" when it came to preparing a venue for a wedding.
Whilst getting married at your workplace might seem a bit strange here in Australia, it is a growing trend in South Korea. More and more organisations are encouraging their employees to have their nuptials at the less costly and more low-key workplace venues.
The presidential Blue House of South Korea is getting in on the festivities, too – drawing a lottery for a selection of couples to be married on its grounds.
