The Wedding Ceremony
The wedding ceremony itself was simple. Bride and groom were led to the family altar,to pay homage to Heaven and Earth,the family ancestors and the Kitchen God. Tea,with two lotus seeds or two red dates in the cup, was offered to the groom's parents. Bride and groom bowed to each other and the marriage ceremony was completed. In some regions both also drank wine from the same goblet,ate sugar molded in the form of a rooster, and shared the wedding dinner.
