    I wanted to do the tea ceremony during the rehearsal dinner, but my mother said that was weird.  I’m planning on changing into my cheongsam during my reception.  I know its fussy but that’s what they want.

    If you would like to have some professional pics of you in your cheongsam, how about changing into it for an hour or 2 during your reception?  That’s what I’ll be doing.  I haven’t decided when yet, but I might change into it after eating and I’ll have it on for the cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss and first dance.

    I wore mine to the rehearsal dinner only (we also did a tea ceremony that night).  I really didn’t want to change during the reception (and have to miss some of the party!), so I stayed in my wedding dress all night long.  I have some pretty good non-pro pics of my cheongsam from friends and family at the rehearsal dinner.  I’m totally fine with those pics.

    For me i also wanted professional pictures and in my family we usually do the tea ceremony on the day of the wedding so it worked out.  We did our tea ceremony at our venue halfway into cocktail hour.  Most of our guests liked being able to watch it.  I only wore my cheongsam for tea ceremony and then switched back into my wedding dress afterwards for the reception.
