Putting on her jacket
Marriages are arranged by parents, and a groom's family will give the bride-to-be silk and cloth from which she must make several set of clothes for herself, as well as one set for her husband and individual garments for his family members. She will stay home and not work in the fields in order to prepare. On her wedding day she wears all of her new clothes, demonstrating her skill and good fortune.
