I did the procession and tea ceremony in my ao dai.  The civil ceremony and reception I did in my white dress.  A lot of people will change into the ao dai to visit tables.  The “prom” dress they’re talking about is the party dress.  It’s the exact same thing as what other brides on the bee are buying as reception dresses.

Sometimes they do wear the prom style dress for the procession/tea ceremony. It just depends on how traditional the family is and what they request.

Like when my friend got married, her family was much more traditional and she wore an ao dai. But when my aunt got married, she wore a very nice dress for the procession/tea ceremony since her mil didn’t request the ao dai.

Here in Ontario, when we do the tea ceremoney in the morning (usually at the brides parent’s house) we would wear the Ao dai. After that we would change into the “white” dress for the ceremony until about after dinner time at the reception. Than we would change into a “prom” dress style after then dinner to start greeting people at each table.

 

If you know someone going back to Vietnam, you can get them to find someone to custom make you an Ao Dai back there for really cheap (that’s where I got mine made).
