In vietnamese marriage custom, the day of the marriage is considered the starting of a new book in a child’s living and is marked by several ceremonial rites. Some of them are based on old beliefs and others are influenced by Confucian and Buddhist beliefs.

For illustration, before the ceremony, the groom’s community will browse the couple’s families and inquire for their permission to take the child aside. The vicar’s representatives may provide gifts in special boxes adorned with red fabric: betel leaves and areca finger berry, cakes and jewels for the wife, as well as a baked piglets to depict good fortune for the couple.

Customarily, pre- arranged marriages in Vietnam were prevalent as they allowed households to share resources and protect their assets. Nowadays, this habit is n’t as common, however, arranged marriages still play an important role in Vietnamese culture. On the day of the wedding, the newlyweds will wear their ao dai ( traditional dresses for women ) and suits for men. They will also wear matching equipment and a rose queen.

The most important celebration of the day is the Drink and Candle Ceremony, which is both a proper conference between two people as well as a way to honor the people’ seniors and ancestors. The newlyweds will serve Green Tea or Chrysanthemum Tea to their guests, starting with the oldest members of the family. They will then receive money and jewelry from the guests as a way to show their appreciation. The ceremony ends with the lighting of a Dragon and Phoenix candle to officially symbolise the fusion of families.
