China:

Did you know that there is a country, where a bride cries for one hour each day, starting a month before she gets married? Not only that, after 10 days she is joined by her mother and later by her grandmother and other family members.
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to see the crying brides-to-be?
 
It is indeed in China.
 
A bit more about it:
 
Weddings are often an emotional affair, but in certain parts of China crying is a required part of preparation for marriage. A month before their forthcoming nuptials, Tujia brides will cry for one hour each day. Ten days into the ritual, the bride is joined by her mother and ten days after that, the bride’s grandmother joins the weeping duo and eventually other female family members will join in the cacophony of crying.
 
Termed Zuo Tang in the western Sichuan province, the ritual is said to date back to China’s Warring States era when the mother of a Zhao princess broke down in tears at her wedding.
