Hmmmmm, I’m 1/2 Korean but totally Americanized unfortunately.  I know nothing of the language and culture, but please tell me you’re going to serve some Korean food at the reception!  Maybe little jars of kimchi as guest favors……ok, maybe that’s going a little too far, lol.  Good luck, it’s going to be an awesome wedding!

Oh, I meant to tell you to look up missjyc, she’s a Korean bee that posted her wedding pics not long ago.  I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if you PM’d her and asked her about some of your ideas.

i can’t believe i didn’t see this sooner 🙂

we didn’t have time to do “paebaek” – the traditional korean ceremony; but we were fortunate enough to have my aunt in korea gift us custom made han-bok’s for the Darling Husband and i; so we did our table greetings at the reception wearing those. my mom’s friend also made “dduk” (korean rice cake) which we served during dessert time along with cake and our choco fountain 😛

i know i’ve seen a couple of stores on ebay that you can order han-boks at for a decent price. PM me if i can help any other way! 🙂

here’s a pic of us in our hanboks

I’m caucasian and my Fiance is born here but parents are from Korea. We are having a western wedding but incorporating paebaek in between the ceremony and reception. We have a meeting this week with a company that performs the ceremony for you. I’m debating getting my own hanbok, the company rents one out to you… That’s the only Korean we are incorporating. His parents had reservations at first but have fully embraced me and are happy we want to include their traditions. Is it true that the grooms family by the bride gifts? Future Mother-In-Law keeps wanting to buy me things, but I say its ok because I don;t like taking things from people. But she says its tradition. Any input? thanks!
