Chinese marriage starts with an elaborate marriage proposal and acceptance, which is placed in the hands of a match-maker. After that, the groom chooses an auspicious day from the 15 to 20 days before their wedding ceremony to go to the Chinese bride's home with betrothal. On the day of the betrothal, "grand gift" is presented by the groom's family to the bride's family. This is a formal occasion where the two families officially acknowledge the marriage and give their blessing. At this point, the two families will proceed to prepare for the wedding.

And therefore, due respects have to be given to your Chinese wife's family. How can you show your sincere side to them?
After the betrothal meeting, both families will make announcement to their relatives and friends of their Chinese marriage. The bride's family then prepares dowry and give a list of the dowries to the groom's family. The groom's family performs "setting bridal bed" ritual and decorates the bridal house for the wedding, while the bride's family prepares household accessories, mostly bedding and dining necessities, for the new home.

Chinese marriage ceremony in China, are carefully chosen according to astrological signs. It is also customary for couples to be married on the half-hour or their wedding day rather than at the top of the hour. In this way, the Chinese bride and groom begins their new lives together on an 'upswing', while the hands of the clock are moving up, rather than down.
On the morning of the ceremony day, the groom arrives at the house of his bride on the way to the wedding chapel. He brings gifts of cash, wrapped in red tissue, to give to his bride's friends, in exchange for 'letting her go'. In some families, the wedding couple serves tea to parents while kneeling in front of them, a symbolic gesture of asking for permission. The bride and groom then leave for the Chinese marriage ceremony site together. T
The next morning of the Chinese marriage ceremony, the new Chinese wife should get up early and make a meal for the groom's family to demonstrate that she is well-nurtured. Three days later, the groom and bride will go back to visit the bride's parents. At this time, the Chinese bride would no longer be considered a part of her family, but rather a guest in her parents' house. As we have mentioned before, Chinese marriage means something to your Chinese girl's family, so, gentleman should find the right time and state your promises to your parents-in-law.
