Engagement In traditional Chinese culture, the engagement period was a time for families to introduce themselves and show their support.
Invitations Chinese wedding invitations are usually folded red cards with gold accents. Popular designs include the double happiness symbol and a dragon and a phoenix, which represent the balance of male and female.
Bridal Shower The closest parallel to the modern bridal shower is the custom of delivering the bride’s dowry. While the groom’s family was expected to pay for the wedding, the bride’s family was expected to gift items for the new household.
