I really like that qipao!  I think it’s great that it has the classic silhouette but modern in that it’s not red.  My mom picked out my qipao and qua and, while I loved them, I wish they were just a tad different to make them more unique.

Here’s mine that I wore to our rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.

You can get some ideas from http://www.aodaivinh.com.  My sister ordered her tea ceremony and wedding reception ao dai from them, and they turned out beautifully.  And they are probably cheaper than going to Asia to get them done yourself!

What shoes are you wearing with your Qipao?  I got one that is similar to pic#3. Will you be wearing a head piece/veil? I am thinking about making my own red veil.

I hope people post more! I can’t decide if I’m going to wear one or not…

I recently discovered Hanfu. I’m not well versed in asian culture, so I’m not sure how common they are, but I think they’re so elegant.

Thanks for posting! I have bought a pair of strappy gold shoes for my Qipao and they look gorgeous!! I’ve also got a pair of red shoes but I think the gold one is better.

So excited to be able to post my qipao that I got today!  I bought the sample but am waiting to have it tailored until closer to the wedding, so the bust/waist area is pinned in this pic, but you get the idea.

I wore my mother-in-law’s qwa for our tea ceremony and the first half of our wedding banquet. Her in-laws purchased it for her in Hong Kong in the early 1970s — I don’t know whether they make them like this anymore, so it was very special to have worn it on my wedding day!

My shoes were by Arturo Chiang — bronze gold flats with fun beaded tassels.

I am totally going with Hanfu, as it is the REAL cultural clothing for the Chinese, and it is so elegant.

You also have the choice of Red and Black vs. the red and gold

The choices are endless, I don’t like being restricted to Red.. >.<

 

and I am going all out for the head piece, Feng Guan, supposely it is the crown only fit to be wear by the Queen in Ancient China. But some Empire decided that since weddings are the most important day in a girl’s life, she is allowed to wear it on her wedding day.

 

They are just goergeous!
