The only words you need to say in your wedding day:

"I do."

surprise

GuilinRaf:

By the way, congratulations, I wish you both the best!

1. In front of everyone, talk to your wife about how much you love her. Thank her for meeting you, falling in love with you, and for marrying you. Talk about your future together, etc. Talk about how good she is, and how perfect she is for you. Talk about how there's no other woman on Earth who can compare to her. This will not only give her lots of face, but her parents as well

 

2. Give a speech genuinely thanking the mother and father of the bride for allowing you to marry their daughter, and for anything they did to provide for the wedding (food, planning, money, et al). Make sure you refer to the mother and father as your own mother and father. This is huge in China, and you'll give them a lot of face.

 

3. Finally, thank all of the guests for coming, and for their blessings. Tell them how much you appreciate their presence. This will give them face.

 

Or you can just do what I did to all the people who gave me trouble, and use semi-complex English to screw with them:

 

"Thank you all for coming to our wedding. I know that amongst you, the only one who can remotely comprehend English is my other half, so I'll just repeatedly spew forth random drivel in order to appear as though I were giving a genuine speech.

The nerve of you sanctimonious do-gooders -- you know who you are -- defiling my wedding with your foul presence. Your deplorable chicanery is positively insufferable; behind thou smiling faces lurks the heart of a thousand wyverns, basilisks, and iPhones. Thank you again for coming to my wedding, I am very happy to have you here! We shall now return to whence we came."

Just be thankful for everyone coming. People will understand the communication gap.

Speak a little Chinese, they'll love that. And definitelty laugh.

 

You can blabber as much as you want in English they won't give a crap but as long as you can say the nicest simplest sentence in Chinese you're sorted.

dharma86:

Especially with Hubei people, they're awesome.

 

It's the thought that counts. Learn a little Chinese sentence they'll really appreciate it.

Apologize for making them spend time in Wuhan.

 

But, really, as Mr. Chinese Name said, just some simple thank yous and stories would be good.  Just learn a sentance or two in Chinese and you will be loved by all.

Ahem.


Just call me "Uncle Xiang." Can I have my profile renamed?

JackieChan:
