Whether you’re planning a traditional Chinese wedding or a modern Northern- style ceremony, you’ll assuredly add some Eastern wedding tradition. Some brides wear a red outfit, symbolising success, fealty and honour. Blooms are even popular, as they are believed to bring good fortune and fortune. The wedding location is frequently decorated with a lot of reddish, which represents good fortune and success. The groom and bride may often be escorted to their meeting by their close friends and family members, who properly give them lai see, or lucky red envelopes filled with money or golden jewels.

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 seated 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 their receptions because they are said to protect the newlyweds and ward off evil spirits. Additionally, firecrackers are frequently lit because they are thought to usher in good fortune and avenge evil spirits.
