    You know, I am most EXCITED about getting those awesome Chinese photo albums done! Did you get one of these?? Looks fun to parade around town, all the famous sites, photos, makeup, and different costumes and dresses. Also stoked for being able to rent like 10 luxury cars for the wedding party. How did you budget for your family to come to China for the wedding? How many family members were able to make it? I think I want to have Chinese and Canadian weddings… Guess I will have to get rich in the mean time. Thanks for the post – emailed it to my boyfriend as soon as I read it!

    I saw my Chinese wedding depicted in that article, and in the excerpt you chose as well. I also ended up marrying in a hotel packed with relatives and friends and thousands of dishes (turtles as well).

    The star of our wedding was our baby, who was 10 months old when we married. I got to wear only one dress (Chinese style) and undid the terrible hairdo the hairdresser had made up for me that morning, and English braided it. I like things simple.

    The worst thing for me was, no doubt, the clouds of smoke during the wedding. I hate that having-to-smoke-and-drink thing.

    And the wedding photos? Oh, my, I got to feel like a princess and like a puppet at the same time.

    Keep up the great work!

    My daughter married a Chinese man with an American wedding. 1 year later were going to NYC for a Chinese reception with his family. What does the attire need to be for the American parents and siblings?F
