    The red and gold brocades look especially pretty.  However, I think it would be more appropriate if you could find one that has phoenixes instead of dragons embroidered on it.  (Dragons usually represent the groom)

    I voted for the gold flowers, but I’m sure it’s because I’m biased (I have a green qipao with gold embroidery).  You’re right about not being able to seriously eat though, maybe spanx would help?  These dresses are pretty unforgiving.

    Gold flowers!  And from what I’ve been told, you won’t really be eating much anyway.  I was told to snack well before the wedding since I’ll be too busy talking to guests, etc to really eat during the reception.

    @romantical:  I like the gold flowers best.  It’s unfortunate that the dresses are so form-fitting (a.k.a. not so comfortable!), though I agree with a previous poster who said you may not have time to eat a lot during the reception anyway.  (I’m assuming I won’t be eating much due to timing and nerves … I usually can’t eat anything if I’m anxious, and I’m sure I’ll be pretty anxious if I’m the center of attention for an entire evening!  Haha.)

    @angelinthesnowxo:  I always thought qipao were comfortable to wear, but YMMV.

    @romantical:  Where are you located?  If your town has a large ethnically Chinese population you might be able to get something custom made for not very much.  Usually the stores that make tailored qipao have all kinds of different brocades to choose from.

    I love Dress #2 but i’m convinced that a phoenix Chinese dress would be most ideal for the wedding, it’s considered auspicious in the Chinese culture. I stumbled upon this on asianideas.com and hmn.. it even seems perfect for the wedding reception pictures. ๐Ÿ˜‰ P.S. It’s on SALE, too, and authentic from China. ๐Ÿ™‚
