Hi all you Korean bees out there. I wanted to know if any of you incorporated the Korean Paebaek Ceremony into the reception and how you managed to do that without cutting away too much time away from the actual reception. I saw that Mrs. Bee incorporated that but I wanted to know how she actually did this. Did you enter the reception then change into the hanboks or did do the paekbaek infront of everyone? Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

hey there. i incorporated the paebaek into my reception and although i initially had reservations, it was a huge success! we didn’t want it to distract from all the big moments that usually go on in the beginning, such as father/daughter dance, the bridal party entrance, MOH/best man speech, first dance so we scheduled the paebaek for about 2 hours into the reception. also, because we weren’t sure if everyone wanted to watch the paebaek, we held it off to the side (and just had the DJ announce that it was going on) in the cocktail space that was no longer being used. so dancing could still go on while we did the paebaek. but no dancing actually happened since all the guests came to watch! the paebaek itself took about 30 minutes (we REALLY limited the amount of bowing and basically grouped ppl together instead of doing individual aunts/uncles, etc). it took me about 10 minutes to change so i changed while guests were eating their entree and we walked out together in our hanboks. hope this helps!

My cousin scheduled her paebaek during the cocktail hour. That way, the guests could come in for a bit and watch, and then go out and enjoy the food and drink while the ceremony was happening. As a guest, it was great!

i usually see paebeks during the reception. once the guests walk in, the paebek "station" is already set up, usually on the dance floor. then the bride and groom walk in dressed in their hanboks, complete the paebek in front of the guests, then leave. as soon as they leave the paebek station is cleaned up right away. the bride and groom then change back into their dress/tux and reenter the reception as if for the first time. this is when the wedding party is introduced as well.
good luck, and congrats!

This was my plan for the reception.
get introduced – first dance – cake cut – dinner service begins – speeches by fathers, Maid/Matron of Honor, Bridesmaid or Best Man – greet guests – change into hanbok – paebek – slideshow – bouquet toss/ garter toss – father daughter dance/mother son dance – party
I’d love to know what the other bees have scheduled for their reception. I’m still trying to work the timing of all the events to take palce during the reception while keeping in mind that the photog has to leave at 10.

I think this covers most of the posts about Paebaeks on Weddingbee?

I looked at the wiki but that gave information about what paebaek is, etc. I was looking for information on how to actually execute that within the reception portion– whether to do what some of the ladies have done– which was change into the hanbok then change back into the gown afterwards and how much time all of that took. Amy gave me a ton of info— and thank you to the others for sharing. If there are any other people who have ideas on when its the best time without taking time away from the rest of the reception, then please share~~!! 🙂
