Wow, good luck finding something that works for you! The cherry blossom thing does sound way fun, though :).

What a bummer! The cherry blossoms and garden would be amazing locations. Good luck in your search.

the only thing that really gets me is the dress. that sounds crazy! Ive never been to Japan so I really don’t know the culture but forcing you to rent a bridal gown? thats ridiculous!

Have you thought about marrying outside of Japan?  Like if you’re from the US you could get married in a japennese garden in the US.

@adw2c:

That’s histerical about the minister!  Its sad too, that some people there are so obsessed with westerners.

What’s up wiht that pic of the couple with the hello kitty couple?

What an interesting (and frustrating!) lesson on culture! I didn’t realize Japanese brides had 3 changes and that they rented their clothes! That’s crazy! I hope you find a venue soon. Is your family going to come over for the Japanese wedding? In the end, it will be beautiful I’m sure, I just can’t imagine having to fight such an uphill battle on the way!!! Good luck!

Wow, three changes! I don’t have a lot to add, but I hope things work out for you. I really enjoyed reading this post.

FWIW, you could walk into a Catholic church in a kimono!  But, I know that’s not the point you were trying to make!

Best wishes with your wedding.  I’m sure it will all come together and be beautiful!
