HK Bridal Special: Chapter 4

Traditionally, the bride appearing in a different gown as each course was served was meant to be a gross display of her family's wealth. Nowadays it is merely a gross display.
Does one attend for the multi-course banquet or the multi-course fashion parade? Either way, it's a veritable feast.
