Rural Village Wedding In China

Nineteen-year-old farmer Wang Yueming and eighteen-year-old bride Xiao Di were married this week at the Wangjiacun Village in Yushu of Jilin Province, China.

Usually in the wedding customs of many regions in China, the groom’s family will present the monetary gift to the bridal family before the marriage. Wang’s parents have paid 50,000 yuan (approximately USD 7,325) to Xiao’s parents.

In the local traditions, the wedding feasts will last three days until the day the ceremony is held. The groom’s family will slaughter a pig, build temporary cooking ranges, and hire chefs.

Early marriage is common in some Chinese rural areas, the couple will hold a traditional wedding ceremony first and register for marriage later after they reach the legal marriage age.

It’s also interesting to note the contrasts of the wedding in comparison to the surroundings.
