Dressed in nothing but colorful flowers, couples exchange floral rings, drink wine of promise, and make their vows of marriage.
The “naked wedding” was held in Hangzhou, south China’s Zhengjaing Province to advocate less emphasis on material possession for a marriage.
These newlyweds, mostly born in the 1990s, say that they would get married without much consideration for material possessions.
However, some married people Xinhua spoke to at the scene think differently.
A survey in Hangzhou shows 63 percent of people value material possessions when they are choosing a spouse.
And for their parents, the investigation shows 82 percent believe that their children shouldn’t get married without adequate financial foundation.
