Author:admin / Update time:2018-12-26 17:09:00 / Hits:0
In our Miao Wedding, we have a leader who leads eight young guys to visit the bride's home and spend one night there, dring and eating for a whole night. Only the leader who can talk a lot, others in the group cannot, must  try to keep silent and just drink, and try to avoid making mistakes at her home. Next morning, they will lead the bride to her husband's home, and the wedding ceremony will start after they come back. The leader often carries an umbrella, a proud rooster or a beautiful duck and a big bottle of rice wine when they are visiting the bride's family.
In the wedding, the bridegroom could only stay home, waiting for his bride. He cannot  go outside with the group.
However, different Miao groups have different wedding tradition.
