In the wee morning hours of her big day, the bride bathed in water infused with pomelo, similar to grapefruit and effective as both an evil influence cleanser and skin softener. A “good luck woman” — one blessed with a good marriage and healthy family — was employed to speak auspicious words while dressing the bride’s hair in a married woman’s style.

In old China, once a woman married, she often left behind her family and friends. Hence this tradition of of an extended sleepover with her closest female friends. Called "retreating to the cockloft," this took place in a separate part of the house such as the cock loft, another name for a small attic. The bride’s besties showed how much they cared by singing songs mourning her departure and cursing the matchmaker, the groom’s parents, and even the bride’s.
To determine an auspicious date for the wedding, fortune tellers analyzed the dates, days, and times the bride and groom were born. But if you don’t want to go all that trouble, at least avoid the last 15 days of the seventh lunar month, otherwise known as the Hungry Ghost Festival. The last thing you want are famished phantoms at your banquet. Our chaperone’s service, with some friendly advice, ensures protocol is followed. No worries!
