@anuicupcake: Your dress is beautiful! Would love to see a photo of you in it!

Here’s my mom and I walking into the Tea Ceremony.  Don’t ask me why I look like I’ve got a swagger.  I have no idea! haha  I went with a more non-wedding like ao dai.

I like the see-through sleeves.  I could see it being very modern looking.  It’s nice if that’s what you’re going for.  I think it would look nice with lining as well.  I think itchy is bad.  You dont’ want photos and video of you scratching yourself during the tea ceremony.  It’ll take away from paying attention on the actual event.

I like yours! I think the see through sleeves are nice, I wore a similar style to a wedding a couple of weeks ago. If it itches though you should fix it. Ao dai are so fitted that the last thing you want is for the sleeves to be itchy!

I’m attaching a pic of mine from my engagement ceremony (my Fiance is Vietnamese). It was very traditional and a bit over the top. The jacket even had dragons on it. I liked it though! I only look so bummed in this picture because I was tired of waiting. It was hot!

I am not sure if I will wear ao dai. I already have three different change of outfits, ceremony gown, reception gown, and after party dress. But if I decide to wear ao dai, it would be in the morning or afternoon before church ceremonywhen his side of the family comes to my parent’s house for the ancestor worship/tea ceremony. I would only wear it for only an hour, not sure if I should even have one made, if I do, it will be either red or white like one of these.

@Simplicitydal: Those are pretty dresses. I like the dress in the first pic. Are you going to have the replica of the dress or have the designer make it for you? It seems that the designer for the first dress have a really nice collection as well.

It’s absolutely gorgeous!!!  I do like the see thru sleeves but i guess if it’s itchy and it’s going to bug you … then you should put the material there to make it more comfortable.  That’s great that your mom can make the adjustments.

Well, I haven;t decided if I want to wear ao dai, if I do it will only be for an hour tea ceremony in the morning-ish.

But if I decide to wear, I have a friend who knows very good ao-dai designer in Vietnam, He makes gorgeous ao dai and using one of a kind material fabrics. HIs price is very reasonable too, for the same thing you probably would pay at least $250 to $350 even having it made in Vietnam, he probably will only charge around $100 because he made lots of ao dai for my friend.

I would go with red ao dai since my wedding gown is already white.

Also, I will not wear that head-piece. I hate that round head piece thing called ” khan Dong” I would not wear that.
