Pictures of Gold-Covered Bride Draws Internet Attention
Recently a wedding in Guangdong has drawn everyone’s attention. During the wedding, the bride’s entire body was fully covered in gold jewelry. The groom dressed as The Yellow Emperor to welcome his bride. According to the news, the groom gave the bride’s family several million RMB. A netizen responded that even looking at these pictures makes him feel poor. Other people said that this gold-wearing is a local custom, both sides of the family have to give the bride gifts of golden jewelry, so the more relatives one has the more golden jewelry you’ll have.

    It looks terrible, but I guess it’s what they love. Gold, money, gold.

      maybe she thinks the hypocritical all white wedding gown in the west is just as hideous.

      • Necrogodomega

        Maybe, but since many Chinese also wear the white dress for their weddings, maybe not.

        • DC

          so those that wear white dresses aren’t about Gold, money gold?

          or is your comment directed more toward the race rather than implied from her dress preference?

  • Hm… solid gold or electroplate? If that was truly the real thing, I would scarcely expect to be able to stand, let alone move in that getup – given what I have seen from ‘traditional Southern Chinese Weddings’.

      It’s real gold, but it’s typically semi-hollow which makes it look a lot heavier than it actually is. (Common for Chinese to make things appear to be worth more). I’ve been to these weddings before and its traditional for all the relatives of the groom’s side to pile on gold jewellery on the bride.

      • Ah… that may explain a few things I saw with Hong Kong Jewelry stores then. Thanks.

      • Mabel

        Even if those are semi-hollow, that could be so heavy on her. Look at how many gold bracelets she had on her.

  • Claude

    I imagine even a Chinese person would think that this person is a ridiculous idiot it’s that over the top.

  • i like gold ring more than diamond one.
