The Love of Marriage – ROM, Chinese Wedding Custom and Wedding Party

The Love of Marriage – ROM, Chinese Wedding Custom and Wedding Party


Alright, so after marriage proposal, we have to do what other married couples will have to do: Registration of marriage, pre-wedding photo shooting and wedding custom depending on the culture.

Phew, lots to do! Well, have to ask experienced elderly – my mom the expert to handle all this. She is the one who handles the whole Chinese wedding dates, Chinese dinner, getting the bride’s chaperone, and so much more!

What is the meaning of the wedding chaperone? http://www.wedresearch.net/2013/08/dai-kam-jie-brides-chaperone.html

Anyway, it is not easy, but it is fun, spend quite a lot of time and effort to get everything done!

So here you go:
