Traditional Korean bridal customs

You may have seen the man getting down on one knee to propose to the wife if you’ve seen any K-dramas. But this is n’t typical at Korean weddings. Instead, in a ritual known as the paebaek, the couple may bow to one another and their families before toasting each other and drinking some unique wine. Taoism is the foundation of the meeting, which emphasizes respecting one’s mothers greatly. The couple will then provide their parents with a variety of foods and beverages, typically dates ( jjubes ) for the daughters and chestnuts ( maekju).

Before the ceremony even starts, the couple’s relatives will also present the couple with bright envelopes filled with cash gifts. This is a tried-and-true method of providing financial support for newlyweds, and it also serves as one of the betrothal gifts ( hahm ). After their service, the lovers can change these hahm presents in a space where they can interact with one another.

Following the marriage ceremony, the newlyweds will reveal jung jong, a special wine made by the bride’s mother and poured into gourd plants. The couple may then take two sips of the liquor as a sign of their marriage vows.

Last but not least, the visitors did participate in samulnori, a performance featuring four equipment, including kkwaenggwari and hua. Janggu and buk. After the pyebaek or during the reception, this is a way to wish the partners fate in their new living.
