Asiatic Bride History

Whether you’re planning a classic Chinese marriage or a modern Northern- style ceremony, you’ll probably combine some Asiatic wedding tradition. Many brides wear a dark clothing, symbolising victory, commitment and honour. Blooms are also favorite, as they are believed to bring nice fate and fortune. The bride stadium is frequently decorated with a lot of red, which symbolizes prosperity and good fortune. The groom and bride will usually be escorted to their meeting by their close friends and family members, who properly provide them lai view, or fortunate red envelopes filled with cash or gold jewellery.

A Chinese couple’s parents will be formally introduced to each other during the Guo Da Li () ceremony, which typically involves tea. A ‘Si Dian Jin’, or four pieces of gold is traditionally gifted from the groom’s family to the bride’s. This symbolises the promise that their daughter will be well taken care of and given a good home.

After the introductions, the couple will serve tea to their parents, grandparents and relatives in order of seniority. The couple is typically kneeling on either side of the table as the tea is served in a special tea set. As older people may find it difficult to drink warm liquids, it’s important that the tea is n’t too hot.

Many Chinese couples will opt to perform lion dances at the reception because they are said to protect the newlyweds and ward off evil spirits. Additionally, firecrackers are frequently lit because they are believed to elude evil spirits and bring good fortune.
