Greeting from Taiwan!
I’m Yu-Han. Traditional Taiwanese wedding customs include marriage preparation such as sending betrothal gifts to the bride, selecting an auspicious wedding date, compiling a guest list and picking up cookies and invitations.
On the day of the wedding, the bridegroom drives to the bride’s parents and offers tea to parents and receives their red envelopes. Before leaving bride’s home, bride’s mother will pour out a basin of water and bride will toss a fan. Those mean the bride is no longer a member of her original family.
Coming to the bridegroom’s house, the bridesmaid will hold a circular rice filter above the bride’s head and the bride will step on the tile and crush it, which means eradication of past evils.
