Then & Now: Celebrating Chinese Wedding Traditions

Find out how the Hokkiens, Teochews and Cantonese celebrate their weddings in Singapore from the 1900s to the present. This exhibition highlights wedding customs and processions, costumes and cuisines across the various dialect groups. Come and discover more through the workshops and photo opportunities with traditional costumes and a wedding sedan chair.

Join us for this workshop by Carolyn Kan, founder of Carrie K, to understand the changes of wedding jewellery such as Si Dian Jin through the years! The workshop will be conducted in English.
