    Do you have a vision of your overall ceremony/reception theme?  That would help with choosing a dress. 


    Which country are the traditional clothes representing?

    Can you do both?  Could you use the traditional dresses for the Ceremony and the vintagey dresses for the reception?  I love both the looks so I really don’t think that you can go wrong with either.

    I’m sorry I’m no help, but I think both options are gorgeous!  You might get more responses if you add a poll.

    I definitely think the traditional wedding cothes have so much more wow-factor.

    And it might be great to add the cool/funky aspect by going with the vintage bridesmaid look – plus, you could wear yur glasses to add match the girls and round out the mix between traditional and up-to-the-minute style.

    Those first ‘traditional’ pics are absolutely gorgeous. I haven’t seen anything like that here in the states, so that’s probably why they look so unique to me. The second set of pics are pretty common styles here, so while they are very pretty, I don’t think they are as unique as the first set of pics. I guess from your point of view, it would be the opposite! 🙂

    I say try on both styles and see what you like on yourself better!

    I picked traditional and then it went to 50/50%… Lol! I guess we aren’t that much help huh?.. if I were you I would try on a few of the styles and see what feels right. That might help you decide.

    I voted traditional, but it’s up to you really — they’re both lovely styles. Would it help if you asked yourself which styles you think you’ll want to see in your wedding album 50 years from now?

    I’m having two weddings so am planning to wear both a vintage white dress and something traditional (kebaya or cheongsam — haven’t decided which yet). If I had to choose between the styles I’d go traditional. To me part of the point of a wedding is to honour my family’s traditions and history so that would probably be more important than having something that is charming and attractive, but to which I have no real personal cultural connection.
