Chinese style wedding China was one of the longest history countries in the world. We have many traditional cultures. Wedding ceremony is a part of culture. Last day was the date of my classmate’s wedding that was the same class in primary school. She was the first one to get marry; I got a surprise at first. And also it was the first time as myself to receive invitation. It said:” Inviting Lin and BF go to XXX…” I really found I was grown-up, not only body but also age. I am old enough to get marry now.(I also feel may be I am the last one to get marry.) If you want to enjoy a Chinese traditional wedding, you must prepare money, time and capacity for alcohol. There are many steps of wedding: Presentation of Betrothal Gifts, Send Dowry, Installation of new bed, Hair Dressing Ritual,Tea Ceremony and Home Coming Ritual. For example ,in the first step- Presentation of Betrothal Gifts, bride should pay : Money, usually ends in $9, $99 or $999 (meaning forever!), put in the Tie Box Jewelry, such as a pair of dragon-phoenix bangles Tie Box, containing lai-see, dried loongans, dried lychees, walnuts, peanuts, lotus seeds, cypress leaves, sesame, red & green beans, red dates, a pair of dragon-phoenix candles, Dried mushroom, “fat-cai”(dried black moss), dried seafood such as dried abalones, dried shrimp, dried scallops, dried squids, etc., inbination of 4,6 or 8.

Inviting friends and relatives to have dinner is a traditional and normal way to show public that U are doing wedding now. My classmate invited us to a Chinese restaurant. There were about 200 people to attend. And every attendances would gave a sum of $ as gift to couple. $ is not everything, but in China if U give other kinds of gift, U also had to give $ at last. Having a drink of alcohol is another way to celebrate wedding. Couple will go to every table to cheer up. There were 20 tables yesterday. Our table was the last one. So we have enough time to prepare playing tricks on bride. We put chicken’s arse, a lot of spice and soy, and lots of un-known thing into alcohol. I was sure it must be a bad drink. But at that time, the bride was drunk, so my classmate took most of this drink. I was afraid of her, but finally I thought they were couple in law, so they had duty to share happiness and woe from each other. I hope they will live to old age in conjugal bliss. I felt I was nearly drunk tooooooooo.
