China, as one of the longest ancient civilizations, has her own wedding culture. Nowadays, a big amount of Chinese still follows the routine of the Chinese wedding but with simplified. Here we talk about is the modern simplified Chinese traditional wedding.
Tedious tradition has been discarding a lot in modern wedding, but one of the most important traditions, which Chinese people persist in is the Tea Ceremony. A Tea Ceremony in Chinese culture means the Bride and Groom dressed up and serve tea to their parents, with
dressing up and with their knee. The tea ceremony in a wedding standing for the bride and groom are saying goodbye to their parents, and going to have a new family. Most of the bride and parents cry in the tea ceremony. More importantly, the tea ceremony represents bride and groom’s respect to their parents.
As shown in the timeline, the Chinese wedding is a long day, which bride has to get up around 4:30. Makeup Artist arrives before 5:30, bridesmaids and brothers arrive at 7:00. As while as a bride is finishing makeup, door game started at 8:00. The tea ceremony started at 9:00. However, all the timeline is based on how do the wedding crew book the church wedding. Most of the tea ceremonies are taken at home, thus bride and groom have to obligate enough traffic time to the church, as well as the preparation time in the church.
If the wedding crew book their wedding banquet in evening, then people can take a rest in the afternoon. A.Vision Studios may suggest bride and groom take pre-wedding photos during the afternoon. The wedding banquet starts at 6:00 in the afternoon, and usually, it takes an hour. The cocktail party begins right after the banquet. In order to save money, some of the wedding crew would ask photography crew to leave in 30-60 minutes after the party begins.
