I’ve been trying to find just the right Vietnamese traditions to incorporate into my wedding. I’ve decided not to change mutliple times – the ao dai i have is not very comfortable to wear. The groom going to the bride’s family’s home is not practical and we’ve decided not to see each other before the ceremony.

I suggest going to visit each table for a toast. I think its a lovely way to say hi to all ur guests.

How about a mini-tea ceremony during the "western" ceremony or during the cocktail hour?
I agree with Sunkissed, too… greeting each table is a great idea.

I would def do the table greetings how else would u get all your red envelopes then? Also we take pictures with our guest before the guest are seated at the reception. by the end of the night the photographers print out all those pictures and they are handed to the guest as a thank you. Oh almost forgot. After the whole bridal party has been introduced the m-c does a special shot out to all the family members who made it to the wedding.

A bit off topic but not really. My mom just told me that she’s going to be wearing white to my wedding. I’m assuming that’s veitnamese tradition but do any of you know why she is doing it?
By The Way, my mom told me I should buy another dress. I don’t think I’m going to. I like my wedding dress and want to be in it for whole time.
As for the other traditions, I’m not really having a veitnamese wedding. It’s basically American but doing somethings because my mom wants me to. Like we won’t have time to go from table to table, so I’m doing a reception line at the reception. (Church says I can’t do it at the church.)

yrret107, at a vietnamese wedding usually thr bride does change multiple times. doesn’t necessary have to be into an ao dai. but usually into another dress at the reception. mainly for greeting the guests when they do change the dress. but it is your day.
but i have never heard of the mob wearing white to the wedding. white is something of a funeral color if i remember correctly and usually only the bride wears white even in a vietnamese wedding.
