Thank you so much for sharing this! I found this perusing on Pinterest. We actually just bought some DIY programs, but they pale in comparison to these, so I’m returning them to Michael’s to buy some card stock so we can use this instead!
A couple of questions:
1. I’m having both of my parents escort me down the aisle (my parents are divorced, and I was raised mostly by my mom, but I’ve always been very close with my dad). Do you have any suggestions on what to put in the box that says bride’s mother being escorted to her seat?
The base ingredients are first served. The leader amongst the diners or the restaurant server proceeds to add ingredients such as the fish, the crackers and the sauces while saying " auspicious wishes " ( 吉祥话 jíxiáng huà ) as each ingredient is added, typically related to the specific ingredient being added. For example, phrases such as niánnián yŏuyú ( 年年有余 ; "may there be abundance year after year") are uttered as the fish is added, as the Chinese word for "surplus" or "abundance" ( 余 yú ) sounds the same as the Chinese word for "fish" ( 鱼 yú ).
