      Wow! Congratulations! I love all the details with the links to where you purchased your items. It's really helpful. And I ABSOLUTELY adore the Chinese symbol for marriage on your stationery. It's a really nice touch for the your hubby's family I'm sure. I'm Chinese myself, and I was wondering whether or not to find a traditional Chinese wedding gown for the wedding, and seeing yours makes me want to find one for sure now. Thanks! Your wedding looked beautiful

        The dual ceremony possibility for destination weddings (legal at home and then symbolic at your destination) was perfect for wearing two types of wedding dresses.  The traditional Chinese dress that I ordered online was of good quality, I just needed to take it to a local tailor to get it fitted around the waist - so I would recommend that retailer. 

         

        One issue we had with the double happiness symbol on our wedding items was with the koozies.  The base for the koozie was navy blue and the symbol was in white.  Apparently my now mother-in-law thought that the navy blue was too close to black and traditionally the double-happiness symbol with black means death.  So if you use the double-happiness symbol just make sure you pay attention to all of the potential pitfalls!  But I hope the usage of the symbol on all of the stationary made my in-laws feel included in the whole event.

          What a creative and fun wedding. I also LOVE the incorporation of the Chinese heritage. Thanks for the link to where you bought your cheong sam. Such wonderful ideas!
