In addition to the dark-color Manchu-style skullcap hat, the groom in the picture is in a plain light-color long gown inside a dark-color jacquard satin riding jacket, or “magua” in Chinese, a style of jacket for men during the Qing dynasty (1644-1912 AD), with “一”-shaped frogs and a gauze corsage.
In a light-color jacquard satin cheongsam with three pairs of pipa-shaped frogs on the standing collar and a gauze corsage, the bride who is hold a large bouquet wears a diamond ring, a pair of light-color high-heel shoes and a bead-ornamented wedding veil long enough to touch the ground.
