Chinese wedding tourism has been on the rise in the past few years. For Chinese millennials, overseas weddings provide a lot of individuality and freedom that is often unavailable at home. However, this interest for unique wedding experiences results in a wide array of forms of wedding tourism, many of which wander significantly from Western, wedding tourism trends.
Perhaps the most recent dramatic example was Sri Lanka’s efforts to develop its wedding tourism industry. There were many Chinese nuptials in Sri Lanka, with some brides and grooms wearing traditional Sri Lankan clothing. Unlike other more traditional destination weddings, this was a mass wedding with 50 couples in Colombo. The couples were even provided local girls to serve as flower girls.
