    Laugh Anybody knows details of chinese marriage customary?

    Hi all

    I know there are several chinese "events" such as bed setting, dowry, combing hair ceremony, tea ceremony, guo da li ... etc

    When, how and what to do?

    Anyone got any idea?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi PerfectPixie

    Thanks for the information.

    Do you know when should we be doing those and what are the items required for the "events"?

    astutekitty your short question needs lots of answer leh.

    first which dialect group you are different dialect group got different practice
    second what is your religion also different practice

    normally if you go see for your wedding date that person should be also give you the date to bed setting and guo da li


    Not everyone goes through combing hair

    When you planning for your wedding?

    if next year then you have to look for those who has hundred years of tong shu they will be able to give you the date but not the timing as timing has to wait for this year tong shu which will be out around may or june.
    tea ceremony to be done during your wedding day.

    Hi Tenshi

    Thanks for your reply ...

    Brides - > Cantonese
    Groom -> Hokkien

    We din picked auspicious day or look through "tong shu". Hence, not sure about the dates ...
