I married into a Taiwanese family but I work for a Korean company.  🙂  You could do a bright-colored crinoline, or even a silk sash with cranes or flowers, depending on your dress.  Even just little paper cranes on the tables would be cute. 

We just did little things, too – my bridesmaid wore red, we served a little bit of dim sum (yum!), and I had peonies (though not as many as I asked for…).

I think there are small parts of the pae baek that you can incorporate. I particulary LOVE the throwing of chestnuts and dates. It will be amusing for everybody. And memorable for both sets of parents. I want to do it at my wedding (I lived in Korea for a bit) but neither me nor my Fiance are Korean. 🙁

My mom is Korean, she moved here after meeting my Father (he was in the military)over 30 years ago and my culture is pretty important to me as well, but i did not want a full out Korean Ceremony (I was reaised in an American culture, where there was not a whole lot of Korean influence minus food until i got older). I decided to put in a couple Traditional Korean Wedding Ceremony aspects into my ceremony to incorperate the culture.

For instance, after the family is ushered to their seats, my mom and my FI’s mom will be doing the ceremonial lighting of the candles. I am also going to add a little extra info as to what is happing and some other facts into the program for the guests to read.

We are doing the giving of the goose, and at the end we are signifing our unitiy by ‘drinking from the gourd’ which might just be cups instead…

Hope this helps, and good luck!
