传统的中国婚礼流程从求婚开始，新郎会送一封书信至新娘家，请求迎娶他们家的女儿。多数情况下，新郎家会雇用一位专业媒人(matchmaker)沟通双方家庭。准新郎和准新娘的生辰八字(BaZi)也要进行比对，以确保根据中国传统占星学(astrology),这对夫妻不犯冲(compatible)。如今，中国大城市的婚礼跟西方很 相似。然而，在小地方，仍然遵循传统，婚礼流程也基本未变。 翻译：Traditional Chinese wedding process starts with aproposal for marriage and a 、letter is sent from thegroom to the bride's family asking for permissionto marry their daughter.
