So Mr Podo and I would like to conveniently incorporate the Pae Baek into our mostly "western" wedding reception…I’ve heard of couples doing it during cocktail hour (haha)…..get ur minds outa the gutter….but in Korea it’s a bigger deal…and in the states couples can go all out and hire someone to help you where you rent the hanboks and all the gear for $1500, and someone will guide you through a 30 minute ceremony…but I don’t want to have to shell out the $$….maybe bringing my own stuff (dochari, dduk, dae choo, bam…whatever) and having a relative from Korea bring us the Pae Baek hanboks would save $$….but I still don’t know how to incorporate it where we can get our wedding pics taken and have the Pae Baek take place…get pics f it…and then join the guests…I guess it’s all about timing, which is not my forte…so I guess I will have to figure something out….any suggestions?

do you have to do it on the day of your wedding? could you do it on a separate day? OR you could do it in the morning with hair and make up already done, but that would mean seeing mr. podo before the ceremony. maybe space out the ceremony and the reception? for example, my ceremony is at 3pm and will end around 3:30pm, but cocktail hour doesn’t begin until 6pm and dinner starts at 7pm. i know that makes it inconvenient for guests, but you do what you gotta do.

you can do it during the reception. that’s what i’m doing. we thought about cocktail hour initially, but the thought of doing one ceremony after another is tiring. plus we would rather takes pictures and mingle with our guests during the cocktail, so we decided on taking 30 mins out of our reception to do it. our venue has an area off the dance floor so we will probably do it there. people who want to watch/participate can, and for those who don’t, they can continue eating/hang out at the bars.
