A Chinese wedding basket is a traditional gift that is given by the groom's family to the bride's family during the engagement or wedding ceremony. The basket is typically filled with dowry gifts, such as clothing, jewelry, household items, and food. The basket is also decorated with auspicious symbols, such as dragons, phoenixes, and flowers.
The tradition of giving wedding baskets dates back to ancient China. In the past, the dowry was an important part of the marriage contract. The dowry was seen as a way for the groom's family to show their wealth and status, and it was also a way to help the bride and groom start their new life together.
Over time, the tradition of giving wedding baskets has evolved. Today, the dowry is no longer as important as it once was, but the wedding basket is still seen as a symbol of good luck and prosperity. The basket is often filled with practical gifts, such as household items, but it can also be filled with more sentimental gifts, such as jewelry or clothing.
The wedding basket is a beautiful and meaningful gift that is sure to be cherished by the bride and groom. It is a reminder of the love and support of their families, and it is a symbol of the new life that they are about to start together.
