Wedding couple or praying over the bible. The bible has been used as a source of inspiration for almost all religions, even those with no belief in God. It doesn't matter if you are religious, pagan or agnostic. Reading the bible will bring you closer to your partner and closer to God. One of the most important things about your wedding is that you and your spouse have read the bible together several times before. This way you know what inspired each other in the bible and it also brings you closer as a couple.
There are many wedding traditions a bride could follow in her life but for the sake of simplicity we will stick to the more traditional wedding traditions and practices. The first one is definitely the tea ceremony. This is a tradition that was started way back during the times of the Ancient Egyptians when they would make their bride a cup of strong black tea and bless her over her head with the blessings of the gods. This was then signified by placing a teapot full of teas over her head. The groom then gives her a ring and the couple then signs the marriage contract.
Another wedding tradition is the red packet wedding bouquet. Basically this is a bouquet of flowers that is filled with jasmine, petals of orange and pepper and other lovely smelling flowers. Traditionally the bride carries the bouquet in her hand as she walks down the aisle on her wedding day but nowadays some bridesmaids and groomsmen do take the initiative to carry it for the bride. This brings the wedding etiquette so much closer since the bride receives the most beautiful and elegant bouquet.
The final wedding tradition we will cover today is the exchange of good fortune cakes. Usually the bride and groom cut a small cake into a certain size and place a red candle at its center. When the cake is done being cut, usually a glass is placed over it with a red candle stuck into it. When the cake is done being sliced, usually a piece of gold foil with the wedding couple's names written on it is placed on top of the cake with the candle still burning.
These are some of the most popular wedding ceremony traditions. Every culture has different customs to follow when it comes to their weddings. One of the most traditional customs is one where a coin is placed into the couple's hands. This signifies that they are ready to be married and their luck will never change and that their love will stand the test of time. The lucky charm is then presented to the newlywed couple.
A Chinese tradition is that the bride will wear white garments which have long hair and no sleeves while the groom will wear black clothing that is tucked in. They will be both blindfolded during the wedding ceremony and then they will place their hands together and sign a piece of paper that says “they now become partners for life”. Then they separate and the paper is given to them. This is supposed to bring good fortune and good luck for the marriage to follow.
Some people believe that if you are going to marry a Chinese woman you must give her a red packet before the ceremony so that she will be faithful to you and not choose someone else. There are several reasons for this tradition, the first being that the bride is meant to be dedicated to her husband and they do not want to break the tradition. The other reason is that it gives her the strength to be able to stay true to you because if you were to leave her now she would feel lost and this is something you do not want to happen. If you give your new bride a red packet then it is supposed to give you good luck for the marriage to work out.
There are many other wedding traditions and ideas that come from various parts of Asia. Some of the other things you can do are to have an Asian motif in the ceremony such as cherry blossoms and paper lanterns. You also might want to add in some traditional Chinese foods such as dim sum and roasted pandas to add to the auspicious atmosphere. It is these wedding traditions that make the bride and groom symbols of hope and the double happiness symbolized by the red packet.
