Traditional Chinese Wedding Traditions
Traditional Chinese weddings are steeped in tradition and culture. During the proposal, an engagement with cake presents from both sides of the family can be seen as proof that you’re serious about being tied down for life! There’s even more than meets eye if it comes to formalities – after all these “propositions” must go through some big changes before reaching their conclusion so don’t forget yourself or your partner during this important time without forgetting who proposed in what context (pun most certainly intended).
A groom’s family will often present different gifts to announce their engagement, which is usually food and cakes. The two families send “Double Happiness Cakes” together as well as invitations during this period for close friends and relatives of both parties to attend the event – although not necessarily on behalf since they may come bearing presents too!
A bride also provides a dowry list beforehand so that everything can be set up properly when it comes down to performing rituals like setting her bridal bed or doing other tasks related thereto; these practices have been passed down from generation to generation without much change due partly because weddings themselves are viewed positively within society.
