Chinese wedding ceremonies are special affairs.
Most Chinese weddings include Chinese wedding favors which are given to guests upon arrival or departure from the wedding banquet. Most Chinese wedding favors include business card-sized or wallet-sized wedding photos of the bride and groom.
At the conclusion of a Chinese wedding, the bride and groom greet each guest before they depart. The bride typically holds a basket brimming with hard candies or chocolates that guests are given as they leave. At some weddings, the bride may also give out red-colored eggs.
Other wedding favors may include blocks of rice wrapped in red paper stamped with the double happiness character and Western-style favors including photo frames and business card holders.
Before the wedding, elaborate boxes of assorted cookies and candies or miniature cakes or a large round cake stamped with a large double happiness character are sent to family and friends to announce the couple's engagement.
