The date is the thing in China
Picking the date is an important wedding ritual in China and sets the stage for everything that will follow. Pick the right date, and the marriage is bound to be successful; pick the wrong date, and the unlucky couple doesn’t stand a chance. The wedding pros at Cordis Hong Kong at Langham Place, in Hong Kong, do a lot of Chinese weddings. “When picking a wedding date, couples always consult with a Chinese monk, fortune-teller, or Chinese calendar, to ensure that the wedding falls on an auspicious date. Knowing which dates to avoid, and what seasons to stay away from, is integral to the process, which is largely determined by the bride’s birthday. Having the right wedding date is believed to bring wedding luck, and aide in the success of the marriage,” they say.
