I keep hearing about a mentality amongst American women where they daydream about their wedding day since they were a little girl. I find the phenomenon interesting, because as far as I can tell, Chinese women don't share it.
Last week, I was talking to my mother about how my cousin recently re-married.
Me: "Did my cousin hold a wedding this time?"
My mother: "No. He wanted to do it quickly. If he did hold a dinner or some type of event, your aunt and uncle didn't know about it."
Me: "Don't worry. When I get married, I'll have a wedding."
My mother: "Will you invite me?"
