After having some fun during the wedding game, at least for me, the groom finally could enter the home and meet his bride.
Normally for a typical Chinese wedding custom, the groom will first go to the bride’s home and bring her back to his home to meet his own parents and then make another return trip back to the bride’s home.
There would be suckling pig and mandarin oranges to be brought back from the groom’s home back to the bride’s home as a form of wedding gift and they also symbolise good fortune for the newly wed.
At the groom’s home, there will be offering of tea to his parents and relatives and cousins in order of seniority.
For cousins who are younger, they will offer tea to the newly-wed, and in return, they will get red-packets with money inside. This signifies blessings from the newly-wed.
My cousin is rather an emotional girl and she was tearing when she was about to leave the house. I believe marriage means the daughter has grown up and will be taken care by another man (the husband). It is really tough to describe the gratitude one has for her parents for bringing her up for the past twenty-seven years.
Here are the snapshoots for the wedding day. Next, off we go to the hotel – Regent Hotel, Singapore.
