Wedding traditions in Asia are very different from what you may be used to. In some cultures, weddings are a very formal affair, while in others they are more relaxed. However, there are some commonalities between Asian wedding traditions. For example, many Asian cultures believe that marriage is a contract between two families rather than just between the bride and groom. This means that weddings are often a time for families to get to know each other and form bonds. Another commonality is the use of red as a symbol of good luck. Red is considered a lucky color in many Asian cultures, so it is not surprising that it is often used in weddings. From the bride’s dress to the decorations, you will often see red used in Asian weddings. That said, there are also major differences, which we will discuss and highlight in our Asian culture guides on weddings below.
