"betrothal 过大礼/纳彩 - up to a month and at least three days before the wedding day, the groom and a friend or a matchmaker will deliver the betrothal gifts on the auspicious date chosen. chinese wedding cakes.... at least six tins of canned pork legs.... and two pairs of dragon and phoenix candles 龙凤烛 are also included."
i was doing some surfing today and came across this picture of brooklyn decker on her wedding day to andy roddick. didn't the 21 year old swimsuit model look gorgeous in her custom vera wang gown? the rouching on it is so fashion. although vera's lavender label isn't doing so well (bergdorf and saks dropped it for spring and neiman marcus for fall) i'm glad to see the top price points pulling thru the global recession.
