Traditional wooden Korean wedding geese
About the Traditional Wedding Geese
The traditional goose 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. The traditional goose gives its distinction by the color on the back and has a quaint look and feel. It is 100% wood-crafted and made in Korea.
Features of the Traditional Korean Wedding Duck
Our price includes the bojagi (fabric wrap around the duck) shown in the picture. The color of the bojagi is an aesthetic color (made with the same fabric for hanboks) particularly chosen for this wedding duck. However, if you prefer another style of bojagi, we're happy to accommodate! Please refer to our Bojagi collection.
History of the Korean Wedding Duck
The traditional goose 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.
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.
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.
