On this week’s podcast:
We discuss the do’s and don’t of going to weddings in China. Are you planning on getting married in China or planning to attend a friend’s wedding? Should you kiss the bride, arm wrestle grandpa? Probably not. Check it out!
We’ve been to weddings all over China and boy, do we have some stories we could share. It’s traditional to drink with the bridge and groom when they come to your table, but let’s just say, if you’re the only non-Chinese at this wedding, you’ll be drinking 10 times as much as anyone else!
Give us a shout if you have any stories related to going to Chinese weddings and we’ll bring them up on a future podcast. We love crazy wedding stories!
