@Marquise123:  My dress journey is complete. ๐Ÿ™‚ I ended up with the VW Georgina, Reem Acra Snowdrop, Reem Acra Saviour and the pièce de résistance Carolina Herrera’s Winterhalter. Madness, I know. But I adore them all, and having multiple weddings blah blah blah. ๐Ÿ™‚

At this stage I’m not going with a qipao, because I can’t find one at a non-couture price that I love. Even here in China, the prices for hand embroidery are really up there because there are so few artisans left. This is going to sound terrible, but I don’t think I care enough about representing my heritage to invest that kind of money…and my parents don’t really care either, they’re very Westernised haha!

@Marquise123:  I think if you have it in your budget go for it!! my only concern would be the amount of hours u would get in each dress.  if your wedding etc is long enough to get a good few hours in each dress.  all of your choices are FAB!! i love all 3 dresses for very different reasons.

Which VW is the 3rd dress?? I am also on the hunt ofr a reception dress and that might fit the bill!

@Marquise123: well that makes a big difference then…It took us at least 15 minutes to button me into my dress.  I honestly still didn’t want to leave the celebration for even a minute (until I HAD to pee, lol) but it could also be nice to have a couple minutes break…

Multiple dresses at your wedding night is not crazy at all! In fact, in asia, brides normally change 3-5 dresses through out the night, not say here it’s a day! 

For those who are interested in modern QiPao style dress, here’re some that can be ordered.
