I wore a quipao for the tea ceremony (and I am Chinese).  Maybe you could wear your traditional gown for the wedding reception.  Attached are some pics of me in the dress I wore. I got it in Temple City, CA.

I’m Cantonese, and I’m planning on wearing a qipao (cheongsam in Cantonese).  The Kwa is just too boxy and formal for me – I think it looks sort of like a suit!  I will wear this during the tea ceremony and during part of the dinner at the reception…

I will be wearing the qua. My mom saw it on me and her face totally lit up.  The qua I’m renting is considered modern style. It’s cut closer to the bod to give it some shape. In general qi pao is worn by Northern brides and the qua by southern brides.  Popularity wise the qi pao wins because it’s cut closer to the body therefore a bit sexier than the qua. Hope that helped

I’ll be wearing a qipao, although i LOVE the look of a Kwa.  I’m wearing mine for the tea ceremony only though.  I think you should wear whichever your more comfortable with. I think our fiancee’s side will love it either way and its great that your making the effort.

Cheongsam would be better if you want to win the favor of your fiance’s parents, for Qipao is the most traditional Chinese costume but you may also wear an ao dai in the reception part. Anyhow, it’s your wedding and you’re the master.
