WEAR A CHEONGSAM AS YOUR SECOND OUTFIT
The reception is a great time to change and wear a modern cheongsam (qipao) as your second outfit! Often lighter and slimmer than traditional wedding dresses, these Chinese wedding dresses are perfect for hitting those moves on the dance floor. East Meets Dress offers custom designs so you can turn your dream cheongsam into reality. Even better, show up as the power couple with matching cheongsam and Tang suits.
HIRE DRAGON DANCERS TO PERFORM
Hire two dragon dancers to perform during your reception. It’ll be a great way to get guests onto the dance floor.
GIVE YOUR CAKE TOPPER SOME ASIAN STYLE
Make the couple on top of your cake wear matching traditional clothing.
ADD AN ORNAMENTAL ASIAN HAIR ACCESSORY TO YOUR LOOK
A Chinese style hairpin is a beautiful touch if you’re not sure what to wear for your wedding. Ranging from ones with pankou knots adorned to more subtle ones with pearls and fans, these Chinese hair accessories are a perfect way to complete your look. Bonus if you can find any from your mom or grandma’s jewelry box for that something borrowed.
JAZZ UP BRIDAL SHOES WITH RED
Jazz up your bridal shoes, with a pop of red underneath. It’ll feel like you’re walking on the red carpet and give you extra good luck. We love this subtle touch to your wedding, especially if you don’t want to go all out with a Chinese wedding dress.
HOST A TEA CEREMONY
Either before or during your ceremony, consider incorporating a tea ceremony to involve your parents and relatives in your wedding. Get all the supplies you need for your tea ceremony—from the tea set to kneeling pillows (your knees will thank you!) in the East Meets Dress one stop shop. And get the timeline for when you should be planning what for your tea ceremony with their Ultimate Tea Ceremony Guide.
