Hi wonderful brides Smiley heart

I'm happy Eartha raised the question of Modern chinese traditions because there are many beautiful wedding traditions to talk about!

What traditions will you include in your wedding? Smiley smile

Chinese Real Wedding Canada

A few things to know about Chinese wedding traditions:

- Colours: Red and gold are two important colours that symbolize love, prosperity and happiness

- Family: No matter how big the family is, usually everyone is invited!

- Ceremony Traditions include ring exchange, tea ceremony and bride changing into a red outfit

- Reception: There will be a lot of food! Meals can go up to 12 courses. Couples usually go to each table to make a toast with their guests to thank their guests for coming.

What am I missing? I can't wait to hear more about your traditions!! Smiley love

    Hi Emilie,

    What you've listed out is basically the jist of the traditional chinese wedding.

    My fiance and I are having a modern western wedding incorporating some chinese traditions in it.

    - Bridesmaid will host door games at the groom and groomsmen and he has to show his "worth" to be allowed through the door

    - Tea Ceremony for both families

    - As most of our relatives are in HK, not everyone will be able to attend our wedding

    - I'll be in my red dress outfit during the tea ceremony at the bride and groom's family home and then also switching into it for a period of time during the wedding reception

    - As we are having a western wedding, we are doing western courses but you are right, traditional chinese weddings can definitely go up to 12 courses

    - We are definitely going to be visiting each table to make a toast to each guests and to thank them for coming

    Anyone else in the group are incorporating any other chinese traditions into their wedding? Smiley ring
