Although Westerner Brides traditionally wear white, to most of the world a white bridal dress is very strange. In most countries the bridal dress is very vibrant and full of color.

In Yugur culture (an ethnic Chinese minority) the groom will actually shoot his bride with a bow and arrow before the wedding…three times. Ok, so the arrows don’t have arrowheads, but still, thats like getting shot with rubber bullets.
