What does the other red dress look like?

At the last Chinese wedding I attended the bride did 3 dress changes (so, no, I don’t think it’s too much).  The most stunning was this green sequin dress she wore… show stopper for sure!

I’d like to see what the other dresses look like too.  Also, does your reception venue have a lot of red (some Chinese venues are red overload)?  If your other dress is already red, and the venue has lots of red, then maybe you might want some color contrast.  That’s just my two cents.  If you really love this dress, then go for it.

Three dresses for the banquet is pretty typical, though I only had two because I didn’t want to change so many times.  The two times I changed were already a pain in the ass.

@mailingis:  Could you go for a gold dress instead? I personally wouldn’t wear a white dress if I were having a traditional banquet style ceremony.

You can definitely do colors oher than red. It’s okay to wear white. I know you are doing two separate banquets. People sometimes wear their western gown as one of the dresses they change into. However, if you wear white and it is not your western gown people still might think it is. Not sure if that matters to you.

It’s okay to wear white.  I wore my mother’s cheongsam to my rehearsal dinner and it was ivory with a golden phoenix on it.  I was so happy that I fit into it!

Banquet dresses definitely do not have to be red only.

I like the current red one you have picked out.  It’s very classy and elegant, and will look great with gold jewelry.  I say go for the purple if you like it.  One of my two reception dresses happened to be a taupe-ish/purple-ish color (if that even makes sense).
