Entering the Bridal Chamber
The couple put a bamboo sifter and a copper glass on the bed, expressing their wish for a boy soon. Then they have sweet soup, which is made of earthnuts, black dates, lotus seeds and longans, meaning that the couple give birth to a baby as soon as possible. It should be noted that the bride mustn't lie in bed during the daytime on the day of their wedding, or it is believed she will be ill in bed all year round.
