Weddings are to certify matrimonial relationships between 2 people.
In the past, the wedding ritual was a “3 letters, 6 ceremonies” process. Three letters were sent from the groom’s family to the bride’s to get in touch, inform, and prepare wedding ceremonies. All 6 ceremonies were prepared by the groom’s family.
Nowadays, the rituals have been simplified. The number of ceremonies is decided by the families involved; normally, 3 stages are included: proposal, engagement, and wedding. In some cases, only the wedding is organised.
