Traditionally, brides wear red ao dai and a hat. Ao dai’s also traditionally have collars — there are many styles (round, scalloped, square, etc.). But, each ao dai is custom made in terms of design (including color, fabric, and other details) and fit so I feel it’s really up to the bride. I’m in the middle of this process too. Are you renting yours or getting it made?

heartillynne :  Hi bee! I’m not sure if this is a “must-follow rule”, but my family has mentioned that the traditional color of the ao dai should be red with a train, and a matching khan dong or hat. They prefer the high collar as well but it’s not a requirement. 

My own ao dai will be white with a white hat, and high collar.

Depends how traditional your family is. I opted for pink with boat neck and a gold khan dong… so not really at all haha
