Three dresses and three hair changes…it was exhausting  yell

I wore my white wedding gown for first look and bridal portraits.  Then changed into traditional Laotian wedding attire for the ceremony.  Then a cheongsam for the tea ceremony and back into my white gown for the reception and rest of the night…

South Asian bride here:

2 piece ghagra for morning pictures, then change hairstyle for ceremony in same clothes + afternoon pictures, then change hairstyle and dress for reception. Total of 2 dresses and 3 hairstyles.

(This is not counting other ceremonies we will have in the days leading up, all of which will need at least 2 dresses each day. Whew!)

I had a

1) traditional, fully beaded qunkwa for our tea ceremony,

2) white dress for our wedding ceremony,

3) red qipao to greet and welcome our guests, 

4) white dress for our first dance and reception,

5) changed into a dusty blue dress, and finally, 

6) another set of traditional gold threaded qunkwa at the end of the reception (to thank the guests for their time)

All in a single day!
