Arriving at the Groom's House
Once again, firecrackers were set off just before the procession arrived.
A red mat was placed before the sedan chair for the bride lest her feet touch the bare earth as she dismounted.
All the household would be waiting to receive her.
The bride was required to step over a saddle or a lit stove to cross the threshold, since the words for “saddle” and "tranquility" sound the same，(An), and the fire would cast out of evil influences.
An attendant might immediately place a heap of rice in a sieve over or near the bride.
If the bride did not wear a lucky mirror, one might be used at this time to flash light upon the bride.
In some regions, a grain measure and a string of of copper coins were laid out as talismans of prosperity.
After these rituals took place，the groom could finally raise the red scarf and view the bride's face.
