My FH is South Korean and I’m bringing in as much Korean culture into the wedding as I can (my FH was born and raised there and we met while I lived in Korea for 2 years – the Korean culture means a lot to both of us). My future in-laws are coming over for the wedding and I’d love to incorporate a traditional tea ceremony into the reception…. and would LOVE to wear a hanbok, a traditional Korean dress, for the tea ceremony. Just wondering if any of you Korean brides or those who married Koreans have pictures of yourself in a hanbok? or have any website links of places to order hanboks (it’s quite expensive to have them made – even in Korea).

Good luck!! My FH is also Korean and we are having a Jewish ceremony here in the states (his parents, aunt, uncle and cousin – who will be one of my bridesmaids, and possibly his grandparents will come here for that) and then his parents are hosting a traditional Korean wedding in Korea a few months later for my family and all of his side of the family that couldn’t come to the first wedding. I can’t wait! I think his mom is going to take care of my hanbok (she’s also getting one for my mom and sister-in-law). So great that you are trying to incorporate Korean tradition into the ceremony 🙂 We are going to Korea in December for a few weeks. Can’t wait, its been awhile since I’ve been there (and I’ll be able to bring FH’s cousin’s bridemaids dress with me instead of shipping it – which would’ve cost A LOT lol).

@RhubarbPie: I think I’m going to ask my Future Mother-In-Law to bring over hanboks for myself and my mother when they come over for the wedding, too 🙂 Haven’t had any luck here ($$). My FPIL are also planning a wedding for us in Korea after our ceremony here!! I lived in Korea for two years, but we haven’t been back for over a year now and I miss it SO much. We think we’ll head back for a couple of weeks before our ceremony here (i would like to pick up some things over there for the ceremony here, too). Exciting! Thanks for your reply… i figured that not many people would have this in common with me!
