Ducks will always stay together…

I know that these are not ducks, but at least lovebirds
and the picture is wonderful.
In China, every new couple needs to go to a park to have a video made
before the evening party starts. If two couples meet in a park,
they should exchange a new handkerchief and wish each other good luck.
It has to be red and have a picture of mandarin ducks.
Because ducks stay together forever. Red is central to the wedding theme of China: It signifies love, joy and prosperity.
This custom is about sharing happiness and congratulating each other.
Traditionally, the more happiness you share, the more good luck you get.
Right!!! Lets share happiness….

For cooler approach you can exchange rockin handkerchiefs from the Brooklyn based brand The Hill-Side its a brand-new neckwear Label which is inspired by an old fashioned working class mens aesthetic. Their Website shows that their styles also look great on girls and hey,even dogs.
I love their photos and can imagine a reall great grooms outfit with their ties…
