ASIAN - AMERICAN BRIDES & TEA CEREMONY

Recommended Posts

Has any asian-american brides included a tea ceremony for their destination wedding?

I'm thinking of including this in my beach wedding in Playa del Carmen.

Hey there, I am Asian, FI is Caucasian.  I discussed this tradition with my mother (since it would've been for her) and she told me to skip it.  I think you should ask your parents what they think.  My mother is not very traditional and said something along the lines of "I don't want you to kneel to me" and "it is unnecessary".  We will be incorporating SOME asian touches to the wedding, possibly having a chinese banquet style engagement dinner at home, but we are foregoing most of the traditional rituals for the wedding.

I have read about brides doing it before and after the ceremony. If you want to change outfits, I would do it before the ceremony, but that would require more time, a location and your fiancé would see you before you walk down the aisle which is the case with tea ceremonies. Doable though. I also noticed a bride do it right before the reception. They just had two chairs and some tea set up and did it right before dinner. I didn't want to take up more of our guests day by adding on another event and my fiancé does not want to see me until I'm walking towards him. Soooo since there are family members on both sides that aren't going to Mexico with us, we will be doing the tea ceremony the week before we leave. This will give our families a chance to get to know each other and be part of the wedding a little bit if they aren't going. We are just going to serve some appies and drinks afterwards. We also had a small engagement party of 150 already lol. No AHR though. Maybe a small BBQ though.

My only suggestion to you is to plan out your entire day with a time line. I shoot 60+ weddings each year and have seen a lot of different ceremonies and events. Its best if you not rushed from doing one thing to the next and leaving some time in there for you to relax. Remember... here in Mexico... things take longer than you expect! :-)

Best of luck

His family is from St. Louis and my family is from Souther California...and we live in Dallas, TX. There is just no way we could do this at home.

 

I think you are right, I may have to do this before the ceremony. Thanks for your help!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
