Honour & Blessing Events

Honour and Blessing Events was dreamed of and orchestrated by two sisters, with the belief that events and weddings should be elegant, breathtaking, and remarkable. As event and wedding planners, we believe that organization is just as important as design, trends can complement traditions - and the journey is as meaningful as the day itself.

The Fine Art of Wedding Tea Ceremony

A course that covers the basics of what you need to
learn and prepare for your wedding tea ceremony
- ALL IN ONE PLACE.

Giving the bride red envelopes

A request from your parents

Another to-do item on your wedding planning list

You mother has just asked you to include a wedding tea ceremony at your wedding and your wedding is coming up in a few months.

As with most Asian parents, they expect you to figure out how everything will go by giving you the ever vague instructions and details. There are already a million details on the wedding planning to-do list and now you an extra to-do item. What do you need to prepare for the tea ceremony?

Should I have a tea ceremony?

A Chinese tradition

Or, you might be the bride that has some idea of what a tea ceremony includes. Maybe you have seen a tea ceremony in action as a bridesmaid or from a random TV drama as you walked through the living room.

Having grown up with Asian parents, you know this tradition is sometimes desired by parents at weddings. You want to make sure you have all the information you need to include one for your own wedding – so that it is proper, your parents will be happy, and it will fit in with the rest of your wedding.

The Fine Art Wedding Tea Ceremony Course

Over the years, as wedding planners we have heard different variations of brides and their parent’s requests for a wedding tea ceremony. We realized that it was very difficult to find practical and detailed information about wedding tea ceremony in English in one place. For this reason the Fine Art of Wedding Tea Ceremony course was formed.

Over 75% of the brides we surveyed felt there was a lack of information online regarding wedding tea ceremony. 

This course was created for brides so that you can find all the information you need in one place and be ready for your wedding tea ceremony.

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION

My wedding is coming up in a few months. Do I still have time to prepare and learn everything from this course?

ANSWER

This course is designed for you to be able to complete over a weekend’s time or if you would like in a day for one sitting. However, we will recommend giving yourself a few more weeks to make sure everything can be executed and you have time to purchase all the supplies you need.

QUESTION

I would like to have a tea ceremony to make my parents happy but I’m not sure if I have time for one. What should I do?

ANSWER

One of the frequent questions that we often get is how long does the tea ceremony take and when does it happen? We will cover in detail in one of the modules so that you are prepared and can arrange time for one.

QUESTION

I’m not Chinese but my fiancé’s family is Chinese. Do we need to have a tea ceremony?

ANSWER

This will depend on if the both of you want to have one and also depend on your in-laws. We would say tea ceremony is probably the most popular Chinese wedding tradition (and there are many traditions) to include at weddings.

I’m interested in your course and I’m curious, how will it be conducted?

ANSWER

There will be lessons with slides as we go through the modules. Supplementary material will also be provided. You will also have access to the community forum (just like a Facebook group) where you can ask questions and meet fellow brides.
