I love the dress you picked out for a potential TTD or reception dress. Who designed it/what's the style name because I am in love!

 

Did you decide to have it made?

I'm going to have it made, I've just been putting it off haha.  But thanks for reminding me - I will get on it now

 

It's by Truvelle - she's an independent Canadian designer.  The dress is called Julia

No problem! They arrived super fast in the mail and the shipping to Canada wasn't too bad

We had our Vietnamese/Chinese engagement party and tea ceremony on Saturday, and I wanted to share some pics with you ladies! In my culture, these are both big events.  The engagement party is when the bride and groom become officially engaged and accepted by the family.  The groom's family brings a lot of gifts to the bride's family like money, tea, wine, cakes and cookies, fruit and a big roast pig. The tea ceremony is usually done the day of the wedding, and in my culture, this is almost like the actual wedding.  For them, exchanging vows is nice to watch, but the serving of the tea and acceptance into the family is when the couple actually becomes "married." So to my family at least, we're pretty much married ;)

 

We decided to combine both of these 2 events into one big day so my grandparents who can't come to Mexico could celebrate with us.  I'm wearing a Chinese style qi pao, and you'll see some of my family members in the Vietnamese ao dai. I'm half Chinese and half Vietnamese, so we tend to have traditions from both cultures. My FI's family is Korean, and we encouraged his mom to wear a traditional Korean dress - a hanbook.

  Congrats! Our family didn't really mind having a small tea ceremony so are planning to have a tea ceremony in Mexico. 

Beautiful qipao! I ordered mine a couple of weeks ago on Taobao and we are asking my fiance's parents to bring it back to Canada after. I hope my measurements are correct and that it fits!
