The Betrothal (Guo Da Li 过大礼)

Guo Da Li Betrothal Chinese Wedding

Betrothal (Guo Da Li) is a formal state of engagement to be married. The groom's family will present gifts to acknowledge the parents' efforts in raising the bride and by accepting the betrothal gifts, the bride's family pledged her to the groom. This is usually to be done 1-2 weeks before the actual wedding day.

This process kick start the unity of the two families by discussing the wedding process, procedures and items needed from both sides. Reaching to a consenses of the two families during the Guo Da Li is far more important than being calculative and overly supertitous of certain procedure or item not being practiced.

结婚本来就是把两家人结合在一起成为一家人。华人重视“礼重情义浓”,所以都会用一些好意头的礼品作为沟通的第一步,好让双方家庭感觉被尊重与重视, 并为双方家庭打开更幸福美好的将来。

过大礼的习俗所包含的意义也是让双方有个机会相聚在一起讨论彼此的要求, 到最终双方家庭的和谐与愉快是远比礼品的多少来或过度迷信于礼节来的更重要的。
