I’m sure you have been to at least one wedding ceremony in your life. Whether it’s a relative, a friend or even your own, it must be filled with lots of traditional things that I am sure you are even aware where it originates from.
I mean why do western brides wear white? What the does ring signify? Why must there be that “something new, something old, something borrowed and something blue” thingy? Why is it the bride must be carried across the threshold? For the Chinese wedding ceremony, why is red the color of choice? What is the tea ceremony and why must they do it? Well if you look a the infographics below, there might be some information below that can shed some light and give you answers to the questions.
