i am chinese. marrying a korean in nyc. we plan to do this during the cocktail hour – as recommended by the paebek person. i had planned to maybe do this privately, or on another day, but my family had really wanted to see what this ceremony entailed so i agreed to do it during cocktail hour. hopefully it wont take too long, since we are only doing this for his side of the family. then, we change back to wedding attire to be announced.

Amy: I think the store’s complete name is Rose Bedding & Interior Corp. in Fort Lee. Phone number is 201.585.0303. I think this is the second of two stores…the first is or was in Flushing (my aunt got her hanbok there originally). Owners are great. They have portfolio of ceremonies they have put together and emcee’d.  They have beautiful fabrics there. Though, they would not sell me any sample swatches or any for my diy runner project unless I ordered a hanbok. They travel a bit further than the tri-state area, but not to Michigan.

 Anyone know of anybody offering the same services or just HanBok rentals or Korean catering in SouthEast Michigan … closer to Ann Arbor or even Jackson (doubt anything in Jackson, best bet Ann Arbor (fingers crossed))?

 Thanks nkang for the openness in detailed pricing in VA. It definitely puts NJ/NY in perspectiv. Hopefully, that is the pricing I am looking at in Michigan.

Hi,

I am getting married in Boston and am trying to figure out how to organize a paebaek there.  Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with that?  Or with anyone who will travel?

 Thank you!

Wow thanks for all the info!!  This site is great!  I called the Pae baek place and they may be coming to RI (my wedding locaton)…so it’s ok to do it during the cocktail hr for all to see?  What worked out the best for those of you who have already done this?  The lady is charging $1500 seems like they have gotten popular and are increasing the prices…plus she’s adding on for the extra charge if they are coming all the way to RI….no guarantees yet…=(

We did it during the cocktail hour (between the ceremony and the reception). We were a little rushed, but I think it was the only choice for us. People suggested doing it during the reception (so everyone can see) and also after the reception. I’ve seen it being done during the reception, and it didn’t turn out very well. And we didn’t want to do it after the reception bc we wanted to end the night with our friends instead of having them wait around for us while we did the paebaek. Anyhow, hope this helps!
