The Qing Emperors" Grand Weddings
Weddings are important ceremonies for everyone. Weddings for Qing dynasty (1644-1911) emperors who were enthroned in their youth were even more luxurious and the rest of the nation would join in the celebration. The emperorâ€™s wedding was called a â€œgrand weddingâ€ to distinguish it from ordinary weddings. Its sophisticated tradition and lavish dowry demonstrated the imperial familyâ€™s wealth and dignity. The exhibition consists of four parts: Engagement; Grand Ceremony; Dowry and Wedding Presents; and Bridal Chamber Rituals. With the assistance of digital technology, these four parts present visitors with almost every aspect of the emperorsâ€™ weddings in the Qing dynasty.
