Welcoming the guests.
Initial briefing for non-Chinese participants at 2 am. Yes, we were wide awake at 2 am =)
The bride’s lovely family.
Procession of the groom’s family to obtain the bride.
“On arriving at the bride’s house, the groom’s party was met by the bride’s friends, who would not ‘surrender ’the bride until they were satisfied by red packets of money, ang pau from the groom’s representative. This was the occasion of much good-natured haggling and truth or dare consequences before the two parties could reach an agreement.”
I so loved the elegant bouquet of fresh white flowers with lively green accents around it.
