In the past, old-fashioned Korean ceremony rites were much more intricate and involved a lot of time. The ceremony is a special occasion where a couple pays regard to their parents and ancestors. They moreover seek gifts for their upcoming together. Now, however, current Korean celebrations have been simplified so that visitors may remain their lives seamlessly after the festival. While still retaining the essence of substantial rites, current newlyweds have also added their own details.

In modern weddings, the bride and groom wear hanbok ( traditional Korean clothes ) instead of white dresses and suits or tuxedos. The bride generally wears a brightly patterned hanbok with longer flowing clothes and gentlemen wear a black violet or dark hanbok with shed slacks.

A key element of the meeting is a bird(kireogi) which represents fidelity and loyalty. It is typically a life bean goose but today it is more typically a wooden one. The bird is passed around from tourist to tourist and bowed to. It is a metaphorical gesture as birds are known for their much living and loyalty to their companions.

Another significant time is paebaek. This is a festival in which the bride and groom pay appreciation to their families by offering them teas. They also offer jujubes and chestnuts which symbolize sons and daughters. The number of friends can be very large for this festival and in the recent it was only the vicar’s community who participated but now the couple’s families are usually invited also.
