    Tongue Any chinese here skip those tradition customary

    Hi all,

    Anyone here intend or already did their actual wedding, to have simply wedding dinner and skip all the morning stuff such as go fetch bride, gate crash, back to home tea ceremony.

    I thinking to have just tea ceremony at the hotel room then have the wedding dinner.

    Can skip those 过大礼, 提亲, 上头?

    Just want a simple wedding will do as I already rom 2 year ago. Haha

    Care to share with me your experience

    Thanks for reading my post...

    few pple do "ti qing" nowadays... not sure what is "shang tou".. but most parents / PIL still like to stick to having guodali, gatecrash and tea ceremonies. You may want to talk to your parents to see what are their views? it's generally done to please them, so if they're ok, then go ahead and skip it

    i prefer to stick with them.. it's very symbolic and you only get to do it once!

    We are sticking with the traditions
    If both of your families are agreeable with a simple ceremony, by all means! As long as everyone is happy!

    We didn't skip the traditional customs because the elders urged us to conform.

    No gatecrashing for me, I find it unrespectful for a solemn wedding.

    I have decided not to do gatecrash and just a small wedding reception. Does anyone have any idea what should I include in the reception beside solemnizing infront of my guests. What else can I do? March-in? etc.......
