According to the tradition the bride serves the groom’s family and the groom serves the bride’s family. This process symbolizes the joining together of the two families.
After the tea Ceremony the normal Ceremony can take place.
It is Chinese tradition for the bride to wear a red dress, called a qipao and to cover her face with a red veil on the wedding day. In Chinese culture, red symbolizes happiness, prosperity and good luck.
