Betrothal (Guo Da Li) is a formal state of engagement to be married. The groom's family will present gifts to acknowledge the parents' efforts in raising the bride and by accepting the betrothal gifts; the bride's family pledged her to the groom. This is usually to be done 1-2 weeks before the actual wedding day.
This process kick start the unity of the two families by discussing the wedding process, procedures and items needed from both sides. Reaching to a consensus of the two families during the Guo Da Li is far more important than being calculative and overly superstitious of certain procedure or item not being practiced.
