Vietnamese Tea Ceremony in Sarasota. The vietnamese ceremony starts out with the groom and grooms family arrive at the brides house with gifts for the brides family. If the brides family accepts the gifts than the they let the groom and grooms family inside the house. At this point there are introductions with the family members while the bride is still hidden. Once the brides family has welcomed the grooms family, then the mother of the brides gets the bride and brings her out to the groom. The brides parents and bride and groom pay respect to their ancestors by lighting candles and bowing 4 times. At this point the bride and groom receive envelopes from family members who could not be present at the wedding. These envelopes usually have money enclosed (or "Benjamins" as a family member states on this video). The bride and groom then serve tea to their parents who in return present gifts to them which usually includes money & Jewelry.
