I can find sooo much stuff online about how the bride and groom act, how they kneel, what they say, etc etc. But I need help with what the assistants do.
How to they pour the tea? How do they wahs the cups? When do they wash the cups? Is this supposed to be a background activity or part of the ceremony? How well do the cups need to be washed; I'm worried if they just rinse them people might be grossed out. What kind of tray should we use - the gongfu ones with the slats, or a normal tray and just have a hot water bowl next to it?
Being a westerner, in Australia, marrying into a Chinese family, I really want to pull this off right but I'm worried it'll be amateurish and embarassing. No-one at our reception place knows how to do this ceremony, HTB doesn't have any siblings, and I don't want to ask my MIL as she is the one I want to impress most.
Please help! Thank you!!!
