Vietnamese Wedding Customs

Three significant ceremonies take place at a Vietnamese bride on the same day. Le dam ngo, the couple’s commitment ceremony, is the groom’s family’s first formal request for her marriage. The two households swap gifts and do rites to represent their coalition.

The following ceremony is a tea and candle ceremony ( le te ). The newlyweds honor their ancestors by drinking drink and asking for blessings for their futures along during this time. They will also have the opportunity to make their first encounter with extended family members.

A parade moves to the couple’s residence for a reception after the tea and lamp service. The wedding will receive a gift package stuffed with jewelry from her mother-in-law at this formal introduction to her new relatives. The bride and groom’s families will lose fragrant pieces in front of their ancestral altars to wish the couple good health, happiness, and fortune

The bride and groom don conventional Vietnamese attire, known as ao dai, which are available in a range of hues and patterns. Their bridesmaids and groomsmen will also be wearing ao dai gowns or a less formal version of the same outfit, depending on the child’s desire.
