According to tradition, the groom needs to send vehicles to the bride’s home to 迎亲 yíngqīn, escort the bride back to the groom’s house. Without 迎亲, no bride would 出嫁 chūjià, which means to marry out of her family and into his. In the past, grooms mostly escorted their brides with 花轿 (huājiào, wedding litter). As time went on, the wedding vehicles transformed, going through various stages- bikes, tractors, trucks, buses, minivans, Chinese sedans, right through to the luxury foreign cars of today.
