Match-making

In feudal China "parental commands and matchmaker's words" is very important.
So if an unmarried boy's parents find a girl they interested in, they will find a matchmaker to make the proposal.

Engagement

Once the two families agree about the matter, the bridegroom's family will present engagement gifts to the bride's family.

Betrothal presents

At this point the bridegroom's family arranges for the matchmaker to present bride price (betrothal gifts), including the betrothal letter, to the bride's family.
The groom's family will then send an elaborate array of food, cakes, and religious items to the bride's family

Meeting the bride

The wedding procession of the bride's family stops at the door of the groom's home. There are ceremonies to be followed to welcome the bride and her wedding procession into the groom's home, which varies from local to local.

Three bows

First, they give the first bow to heaven and earth.
Then they give the second bow to he family ancestors and parents.
Finally, the bride and groom give bows to each other.

Bridal chamber

The bridegroom and bride are sitting on the bed of the bridal chamber.
The newlywed couple will drink wine from two cups tied together with a red string, arm crossed from each other.
Then, the teasing game starts. Usually, all the young men can participate in the game, except for the bride's married brother-in-law. Those funny and silly game will ease the tension, since the newlywed never meet each other before the wedding.
