Hair combing - The four blessings

一梳梳到尾 Yi Shu Shu Dao Wei,
First combing, continuous from beginning till end, may you be together all your lives.

二梳百年好合 Er Shu Bai Nian Hao He,
Second combing, may you have closeness and harmony in your marriage.

三梳子孙满堂 San Shu Zi Sun Man Tang,
Third combing, may the laughter of children fill the halls of your home with children.

四梳白发齐眉 Si Shu Bai Fa Qi Mei。
Fourth combing, may you enjoy an everlasting love till a ripe old age.

The solitairebride's take

A simple and lovely ritual to perform and practise differs for this simple ceremony.

To me its a meaningful ritual. I somehow instill the idea to my mum that this is a need as she originally thinks its not necessary.

I'm more well versed in wedding ceremonies than her now.
