Whether you’re planning a classic Chinese wedding or a current Western- style ceremony, you’ll assuredly incorporate some Asiatic wedding tradition. Some brides wear a dark costume, symbolising accomplishment, loyalty and honour. Lilies are also common, as they are believed to bring excellent fate and wealth. Red, the color of good fortune and happiness, is frequently used as the bride venue’s accent. The groom and bride may frequently be escorted to their ceremony by their close friends and family members, who may sell them lai notice, or wonderful red envelopes filled with wealth or silver 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 and is served in a special tea set. As older people may find it challenging to drink warm beverages, it’s important that the tea be kept at a room temperature.

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.
