Since ancient times, Chinese people have highly valued the wedding ceremonies. Marriage is not only a crucial stage in a person’s life but bears the mission of passing on lives generation after generation. In general, marriage refers to the wedding ceremonies, and the wedding ceremonies of one nation, regardless of its content or form, are a reflection of its culture. Marriage serves as a turning point in one’s life. In all symbols defined by human beings, rituals own a special status. Things or phenomena of any rituals are constructed with the corresponding performances of mankind, which are the symbols of a variety of elements of rituals. Therefore, marriage customs can be regarded as a set of cultural codes and symbols. The purpose of the study is to enable the general public to have a better understanding on the traditional wedding customs. Further, it aims to remind modern people not only to think highly of the traditional wedding customs but also to face the importance of breeding the next generation.
A historic research is applied in the study to analyze the literature on the wedding culture; further, with a reference to the theory of semiotics and iconography, it makes a preliminary exploration on the inner meanings of Taiwanese wedding customs, trying to analyze and annotate the visual patterns and benedictions in wedding customs. Hopefully, the results can be applied in extended designs and serve as an applied theory for the design of modern featured wedding gifts.
