Marriage is a civilized form of reproduction in human society and a highly economical product. Human beings have always regarded marriage as an epoch-making gift of life, and paid special attention to it. At a certain age, a man should marry and have children, and a woman should find someone to marry and only when her children get married and become a family, parents can settle their desire to raise their children, and they can partially unload their burdens and responsibilities and begin to enjoy family happiness.
As the 15th largest minority in China, The Bai People has its own national customs and is unique in art.
The traditional and ancient marriage ceremony of The Bai People makes the marriage of The Bai People more stable and long-lasting. The author made an investigation and research on the wedding customs of the Bai ethnic group in Dali, Yunnan in order to draw the strength of marriage from the traditional marriage customs and etiquette of The Bai People in Dali. It is found that the wedding customs of The Bai People are complicated, but at the same time, they are full of sense of ceremony, good wishes for married life and beautiful yearning for future life. The Bai People’s wedding customs and etiquette, which are full of ritual, can help both parties to deepen mutual understanding, have a sense of belonging and family, and thus consolidate their sense of responsibility.
The Bai people’s wedding customs are divided into three parts: before, during and after the wedding.
