There are just so many different school of thoughts when it comes to 过大礼 (Guo Da Li). In fact Mr Oops and myself were clueless right from the start. It was through reading and understanding before we finally come to an agreement on the type of betrothal ceremony we want.
I respect the intention of having of a betrothal ceremony. But the most annoying thing about preparing betrothal gifts is the massive number of items required for a "complete" ceremony.That sure gets on one's nerves.
If you want to have a better understanding of the betrothal gifts and the meaning of each individual item (specifically for the Teochews and Hokkiens), I feel that this website by topphotography.com.sg offers the best knowledge thus far. So do hop over to this website if you want the full complete list.

As there are too many choices when it comes to xi bing, I decided to focus mine on Teochew xi bings. I strongly believe that every cultural wedding traditions and customs are there for a reason. For the Teochews, the little round bean paste pastries (aka dou sha bings) and assorted sweets are given because it symbolises 圆圆满满 (perfect and successful marriage) and 甜甜蜜蜜 (sweet marriage). They are often packed nicely and distributed to relatives and friends. I tried googling on the internet for reviews but they were quite limited.
