A normal wedding procession looks something like this, with a caravan of red cars rented especially for the occasion and driven around (often empty) after the two or three cars with the actual wedding party in them. The bride will change clothes multiple times during the wedding ceremony often wearing both a Western-style white wedding gown and a red cheongsam.
