Wedding ceremony by moonlight is gradually becoming in vogue in Chengdu City, capital of Sichuan Province.
Candlelight replaces the sunshine and noise with quiet and romance. Grounds are full of rose petals. When the bridegroom kisses his bride, a spark lightens the whole wedding hall.
Couples often favor this type of wedding ceremony, saying it is very convenient, and doesn't influence their work so much.
A wedding organizing firm says that the moonlight wedding ceremony can give the engaged couples sufficient time to organize their wedding, with prices much cheaper than normal weddings.
With moonlight wedding ceremonies becoming trendier in other major cities of China, wedding planners hope this economical type of wedding will shine in Chengdu.
