A traditional Chinese wedding ceremony is mysterious and intersting for many western people.Here I will introduce some parts of it. On the day of wedding ,people from bridegroom's home will go to bride's home and pick her up in sedan chair,a kind of folk conveyance in China with the guide of an old woman which is called matchmaker.The band with gong and drum performances cheerfully and lively on the way.After bride's arrival ,there is the most important part of wedding ceremony--firstly bride and groom bow to Heaven and Earth ,then bride and groom bow to their parents.After that,the new couple go back to the bridal chamber which is called Dongfang and have a rest.The banquet of wedding begins.The friends of new couples will rough horseplay at weddings and send their best wishes to the bride and groom at the feast.Nowdays,Chinese young people normally take western stylish wedding ceremony.But some of traditional wedding manners are still used to make the ceremony more intersting.More and more new couples buy wedding products such as traditional wedding bag on website .For example ,aokeshen,which is a large wedding products website shop in China.Why not try ,new couples?
