Taiwanese Wedding -- Arrival at the groom's hotel.<br />
<br />
The couple is received with offerings of two oranges.<br />
In Mandarin Chinese, the word for orange ('ju') sounds very similar to 'ji', a character meaning 'lucky', 'auspicious' or 'favorable'.<br />
Oranges are thus considered to bring the couple good luck.
