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 emperor's wedding was called a rand wedding?to distinguish it from ordinary weddings. Its sophisticated tradition and lavish dowry demonstrated the imperial family'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 emperors weddings in the Qing dynasty.
