The wedding I’d like to talk about is my sister Lucy’s wedding, which was held in a five-star hotel in Beijing three months ago. I was chosen to be her bridesmaid. It’s my first time to do it. Frankly, I was kind of nervous.
The wedding was a Chinese traditional style wedding, my sister and her groom were dressed in Chinese dresses instead of western ones. Lucy was wearing a cheongsam, which was a red one with embroidery of a peony. It’s a typical modern style cheongsam with a stand-up collar, two slits on both sides and small toggle buttons. While her groom was wearing a Tang suit made of high quality silk.
There were a lot of guests coming to give their wishes and congratulations. After the ceremony, the new couple toasted to every table. I felt kind of dizzy, because it was quite noisy. Maybe, it was exactly what a Chinese wedding was like.
So I decided to make a simpler wedding for myself in the future.
