What is the Appropriate Attire for a Traditional Asian Wedding?
For modern-day Asian brides and grooms, wearing traditional and cultural wedding garments honors your family and ancestors. For Asian couples in northern New Jersey looking to incorporate important cultural themes in their wedding, understanding how to design a cohesive environment becomes daunting. Traditional Asian wedding wear can often be reserved for the formal wedding ceremony. When partnering with Pleasantdale Chateau, Asian brides and grooms can feature their cultural elements, while still incorporating a western-like reception. For traditional Korean brides and grooms, guests can expect to see both wearing a hanbok with floral embellishments or reflective patterns. The bride may typically choose to wear a pink or purple hanbok and guests can be encouraged to wear similar lightly colored outfits. Traditional Chinese brides can wear a qipao, often in a bold red, and can switch outfits throughout the wedding day.
Guests at a traditional Chinese wedding typically remain encouraged to wear light-colored outfits to symbolize the bride and groom’s new life together. Japanese couples will both wear complimenting kimonos, with the bride wearing white and accessorized with a headdress. For receptions, Japanese brides may change into a brightly colored kimono or choose to wear a western-style gown. Contemporary Filipino brides also wear western-like white gowns and may bring in traditional elements with stylistic features that mirror the traditional Filipina gown.
High-end and popular Asian wedding dress designers such as Vera Wang, Manish Malhotra, and Yumi Katsura have been driving forces in the industry, blending contemporary and traditional designs into their wedding gowns. Brides often looking to these prominent wedding designers for inspiration, find themselves aligning their colors based on their wedding outfit. For brides looking to showcase the intricate designs and details of your wedding day outfits, rest assured that your Pleasantdale Chateau event planners will make you and your partner the focal point of your big day. Paired with our wedding planners, you can be sure to build the wedding of your dreams and celebrate the important cultural elements you and your partner hold close.
