2017 continues to see the popularity of Asian couples having civil ceremonies instead of or alongside their respective religious ceremonies. Primarily for multicultural couples, some opt to keep religion out of it completely while others choose to incorporate a few traditions.

This then allows the couple to have a cultural wedding reception, just like Indie and Rav did.

For many of those who know of the Chinese tea ceremony but not sure why it happens or how, I thought I’d share all the details. It’s such a beautiful and vital part of a Chinese wedding. The ceremony is a symbolic way of presenting the bride to the groom’s family, and for the couple to express gratitude to their elders. The couple typically wears embroidered silk outfits in the colour red for luck and prosperity. This is subject to the couple who may choose to wear something else instead.
