In current times, a pair of wooden geese commonly referred to as wooden ducks are used as marriage gifts or as the centerpiece for weddings.
Geese mate for life and are known for their devotion to their mates. Thus, the goose became a symbol for the new couple’s prosperity and everlasting love throughout their marriage.
The Saekdong duck is actually a goose and symbolizes love so deep that there is a myth that when one side leaves, the other side can't but help think about that person.
In the past, the Korean groom would travel to the bride's location to hold the wedding. The first thing he did was offer a gift, which was usually a goose wrapped in a red bojagi, to his parents in law.
