    No, I would not. But it’s not part of my culture to have multiple dresses, as I know it is in some (ex.: I have a friend who’s Morrocan and when he got married, his bride changed 3 times during the evening. From what she told us, it can be 5 to 7 dresses in big weddings).

    If it was my culture, I would, only because I like sticking to tradition.

    How do you feel about sticking to tradition? Do you want more than one?

    I think the thing about interfaith weddings for our parents, that many brides do not always realise, is that they may have ,to in a sense, give up on their vision for what they expected our wedding day to look like and that can be hard for them. Sure, it is OUR wedding but they are our parents and for those of us from Asian backgrounds, there opinions do matter.

    I’m a south asian hindu girl, marrying a white christian guy, and I was so ready to forego all the traditions that I do not deem important (especially the ones that cost tonnes of extra money). But I figured that at the end of the day, if it’s not actually important then it does not matter whether I do it or not. Make sense? Some battles I’m letting my mom win because it makes me happy to make her happy… and just because I don’t care…

    By the way, I’m wearing a traditional ceremony outfit and changing into a white dress for the reception…

    • Wedding: June 2014 - TTC #2

    @Cynderbug:  I am having a Japanese wedding and will be wearing 4 dresses on the day as per tradition. I first resisted saying it’s unecessary and a waste of money and time (to change) but FI’s parents offered to pay, so I am doing it to appease them and FI.
