hi katherine,

the long feng candles will be bought by the guy's parents. GDL list will differ from person to person based on both families' requirements and dialect group.

My ILs are giving me SDJ, pinjing, nappy $, AP for my grandparents, oranges with some green leaves, dried foodstuff, wines and cakes.

My parents are giving my ILs/us bedsheets, pillow cases, pillows, bolsters, tea pot set, clothes, belts, tie, jacket, etc for me and husband, shoes for me and husband, luggages, baby set, sewing kit, jewelry and cash dowry.

Just to check if si dian jin is exclusive to teochew custom? Seems like everyone is practicing this custom

Hi @Hopefulbride2016 , I'm a teochew and I follow the tradition of buying both 四点金 and 嫁妆.

四点金 is bought by the groom side, whereas 嫁妆 is bought by the bride side. Traditionally the more 嫁妆 you bring over, the more "face" you have. But at the end of the day, it has to depends if your pocket allows you to do so. :D
