As Seen On:

Weddings embody the essence of cultural heritage, with each tradition weaving a unique narrative. Vietnamese and Chinese ceremonies, in particular, celebrate the union of two hearts while honoring familial bonds through the time-honored tea ceremony. This tradition, rich in symbolism, offers a moment of reverence to elders and ancestors, linking generations.

We invite you to experience the beauty of these moments captured by our acclaimed photographers. Let us guide you through this profound tradition, where each photograph tells a story of love, respect, and the weaving of two families into one.

What Is a Wedding Tea Ceremony?

The tea ceremony in Vietnamese and Chinese weddings is a revered tradition, symbolizing respect, recognition, and acceptance within the family. It’s a moment when couples express their commitment and gratitude, serving tea to elders and in-laws as a sign of their integration into the family.

This ceremony, rich in meaning, takes place during significant events like the betrothal, engagement, and wedding, marking a poignant acknowledgment of familial bonds and the couple’s new journey together.

How Does the Tea Ceremony Work?

The wedding tea ceremony involves a structured procedure where the groom stands on the right, and the bride on the left. They kneel on cushions, serving tea to their parents, grandparents, and then relatives, symbolizing respect and gratitude.

Recipients sip the tea and return the cups, often presenting the couple with red envelopes containing gifts or blessings. This ritual underscores familial bonds and the couple’s integration into each other’s families.

What Do You Wear?

For your attire, consider a traditional red qipao dress or a Han jacket to honor classical symbolism, or opt for a chic, redefined white floral Cheongsam for a modern twist.
