Weddings are a big deal in Taiwan. From engagement parties to pre-wedding professional photo shoots, from engagement cookies to wedding customs and traditions, getting married in Taiwan has its own set of rules which are quite different from the western world.
And when I recently received several emails and private messages on facebook asking questions about specific Taiwanese wedding customs and enquiring about the typical expectations of wedding guests in Taiwan, I knew I had to blog about the topic.
So, I am pleased to introduce my very first series – Taiwanese Weddings. For the next month or so, I will blog once a week about a particular aspect related to Taiwanese weddings.
I have to point out that I am by no means a Taiwan Wedding ‘guru’ but I have attended to my fair share of weddings in Taiwan and I do have first-hand experience as a bride here.
But before I kick off this first series on Foreign Sanctuary, I thought I would start with a little bit of fun – a guessing game!
There are three wedding invitations included in the photo below. Two of these invitations were received from friends and one of the invitations was actually the wedding invite we sent out for our Canadian wedding.
Which one do you think was our Canadian invitation? (Hint: 🙂 It is red! 🙂 ) Be sure the cast your vote and leave a note in the comment box below to let me know why. I would love to hear from you.
**The results will be revealed next Saturday in the first post**
