...to include a wedding tea ceremony at your wedding and your wedding is coming up in a few months. As with most Asian parents, they expect you to figure out how everything will go by giving you the ever vague instructions and details. There are already a million details on the wedding planning to do list and now we have this extra thing. What do I need to prepare for the tea ceremony?

Your mother just asked you...

Or, you might be the bride that has some idea of what a tea ceremony includes. Having seen a tea ceremony in action as a bridesmaids or from the random Chinese dramas that you passed by in the living room. Having grown up with Chinese parents, you know this tradition is sometimes desired by parents at weddings, and you want to make sure you have all the information you need to include one for your own wedding – so that it is proper, your parents will be happy, and it will fit in with the rest of your wedding. 

Over the years, as wedding planners we have heard different variations of brides and their parent’s requests for a wedding tea ceremony. We realized that it was very difficult to find practical and detailed information about wedding tea ceremony in English in consolidated form. 

Over 75% of the brides we surveyed, felt there was not adequate information online regarding wedding tea ceremony. 

This course was created for brides so that you can find all the information you need in one place – so that you are ready for your wedding tea ceremony.

Who is this course for?


This course is designed for you to be able to complete over a weekend’s time or if you would like in a day for one sitting. However, we will recommend giving yourself a few more weeks to make sure everything can be executed and you have time to purchase all the supplies you need. 

One of the frequent questions that we often get is how long does the tea ceremony take and when does it happen? We will cover in detail in one of the modules so that you are prepared and can arrange time for one.

This will depend on if the both of you want to have one and also depend on your in-laws. We would say tea ceremony is probably the most popular Chinese wedding tradition (and there are many traditions) to include at weddings.

This online course will be a go at your own pace experience. There will be lessons with slides as we go through the modules. There will also be worksheets and audio clips for what to say so you can be prepared when you serve the tea to your parents and in-laws.  

You’ve tried researching online and all the resources available only cover part of what you’re looking for. If you want to have a smooth tea ceremony and be equipped with the knowledge of what is involved so that your parents and in laws will feel you are prepared then this course is for you.
