"A wedding is about tradition and roots and family. It is an event steeped in symbolism, when two lives, two worlds, and often two cultures are joined as one. For Asian-Americans, tokens of home and tradition represent continuity with family far away, and show honor and respect for ancient heritage." "This book is about such romantic rituals. As Asians marry Americans or other Asians with different upbringings, the traditional white Victorian wedding is being transformed into a dazzling display of ethnic color and culture. For couples transplanted far from their roots, separated from village elders and grandparents, this book will bring to life rich and colorful Chinese, Japanese, and Korean traditions. It explores the meanings behind the customs and rites that are so important during this life passage."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
