Although nowadays Chinese wedding http://www.andytailor.com/petite-wedding-dresses-c-71_85/ still keep some traditional ways as before, they have great difference between traditional one and modern one. Now let me tell you some big distinction in process.
Traditional wedding cerebration:
No1 Escorting the bride
Grooms dressed in red costume with red ribbon on their waist and ride horse to pick up the brides. Only when on the big day, they know each other for the first time http://www.andytailor.com/princess-wedding-dresses-c-71_86/.
No 2 cross burning brazier
This movement symbolizes wiping out all the mischief and the couple will have a bright prospect ever after.
No 3 performing kowtow
The new couples should make kowtow several times. First, they should perform it to the god. Wish god can bless their marriage http://www.andytailor.com/royal-wedding-dresses-c-71_87/. Next is to the parents. When they got marriage, brides should say goodbye to her parents. Because from this day on, she belongs to her husband and almost can’t return to her parents’ home. This action is to show their filial duty and gratitude.
No 4 teasing new couples
On the wedding feast, grooms should drink to all guests on the occasion. Guests would say something to tease him and the brides, but sometimes maybe compliments, such as how beautiful of the bride is!
No 5 tea ceremony
This thing must be done by brides. She should hold tea cup to parents and sisters or other relatives to show respect.
No 6 drink “cross-cupped wine”
This part also called “hebao” in Chinese. The new couple drinks from each others’ cup to express their love.
No 1 bachelor party
The grooms would like to hold a party to memory his bachelor life. The bachelor parties become customary for the groom to feast with his friends the night before the wedding http://www.andytailor.com/sheathcolumn-wedding-dresses-c-71_89/, often celebrating his last night of freedom by getting severely drunk (not much has changed it seems). In modern times, women have decided they also want their night of fun, so now it is traditional for women to have bachelor parties as well.
No 2 the Going-away Car
Some couples are rich. They have their own car to pick up the bride. But most of the groom chooses to rent an excellent car to do this.
No 3 the Best Man and Bridesmaid
There are no best man and bridesmaid in the traditional wedding ceremony. Now, the new couples like to invite their friends to act as their best man and bridesmaid. This method can add their sense of happiness.
No 4 take vows
XXX, do you take this woman, XXX, to be your lawful wedded wife, to live together in the estate of matrimony? Will you love her, honor her, comfort her and keep her in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others, be true to her as long as you both shall live?
I,XXX, take you , XXX, as my lawful wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part.
No 5 throw flower bunch
It is said that anyone who seize the flower bunch from the bride will get the fortune to be the next bride.
Wedding ceremony is changing all the time. Learning the popular trend can help you follow the fashion. New couples would like to know some traditional ways too because sometimes they want to get a special traditional wedding celebration.
