Nice photos mate! But why is the bride holding some cents (jiao) in her hand as they drove away from her home?

She was dropping it along the way. As I understand - another custom that means sharing Their happiness with others (in that case - anonymous people who can find some jiao).

I just have updated informations about the notes in Bride's hand.

She drops it on the road when She meets another bride, passing the temple, or leaving Her home (going to the car) - so not all the way. But the meaning is as I said - to share with others good luck and happienes in the future.

Btw. We met so many "wedding convoys", that She probably had to have really large amounts of it. This is probably why the Cadillac was so heavy

I have not witnessed the last custom - when after 2 days in a Husband's home, younger brother of Wife comes to pick Her up back to Her parent's home, when She stays some time before going back.
This is the custom to thank to Her Parents, and show the respect.

But maybe it's "the last chance to escape?" {:soso_e114:}
