Their parents would take turn to share their experience and give blessing.
After that, the groom and the bride exchange their wedding rings and receive the gifts from their parents such as golden bracelets, ear rings, necklace... After the wedding ceremony is over, there will be a party at the groom's house.
In the middle of the party, the couple goes to each table to get wishes, congratulations as well as money.
Today, a lot of Vietnamese couples have their wedding ceremony done in Temples or Churches which is very much similar to American and Western style, including exchanging vows and wedding rings.
