Just curious to what everyone else is wearing for their wedding reception. Are you going to wear your wedding dress or change into another dress. I have a traditional chinese gown that I will be wearing for my tea ceremony but I am thinking of either a fun short but still formal white dress or a long elegant red dress in place of changing back into the chinese wedding dress I will wear for my tea ceremony. I’ve been having a hard time finding either. I did see something on rent the runway http://www.renttherunway.com/sites/all/modules/custom/ckeditor/ckfinder/userfiles/images/dress_camen_marc_valvo_all_eyes_on_you.jpg but I don’t know if I absolutely love it. Show me what you’ll be wearing :)!

@ccyamada: I only had my wedding dress and my chinese dress, though I think for a lot of Chinese brides, a 3rd dress is totally normal.
Here’s my chinese dress:

yeah a third dress is very normal.
chinese qipao or kwa for the tea ceremony
white dress for the wedding ceremony
then during the banquet the groom and bride are introduced with her in the white dress
half way through the banquet they walk out again..this time she wears a formal evening gown of her choosing.
the richer the family the more changes of formal evening gowns the brides does..showing off her beauty and her family’s wealth.

I just bought mine tonight! So excited. I hadn’t even planned to, it was totally an impulse buy and was 50% off. No picture yet, but it is short, white, and adorable. Tulle skirt, strapless, with light blue, pink, and gold lacey flowerers sewn on and accented with gold flatback crystals.

I am wearing this dress:
with sparkly black peep-toe jimmy choos! It is perfect since I am having a summer wedding and encouraging casual dress for the reception!
