Pre-wedding Rituals & Customs


A few days before the wedding, the bride's family send dowry to the groom's family, or the couple's new home nowadays. Dowry is mostly composed of daily necessities for the new home, such as bedding, linen and dining set, etc.  This is an opportunity for the bride's family to display their love for their daughter as well as their wealth. 

The groom's family will invite a respected female relative or friend to "set the bridal bed" at the new home.  In some part of China in the old days, a unmarried young boy will be invited to sleep in the bridal bed the night before the wedding to bring fertility to the newlyweds.
