~ Back and Married! ~

Wow! It has been a month since I last blogged. Guess what I did!!

It's been a crazy month and there are a lot of food, and wedding stuff I would like to write about. But, first, a short post about the outfits I wore on my wedding day. First, my mom and my Auntie Tina said I have to wear a brand new red pajamas to bed the night before. Should I wear it every year for our anniversary?

Even though it was 90 degrees at 9:30am, I had to wear that red pj underneath this super traditional Chinese wedding dress. Good thing I only had to wear it for the Chinese tea ceremony! Also a Chinese tradition to walk underneath a red umbrella held by a woman with a good life (I think?). That was fun :)

Here's a sneak peak of some pictures the photographer took before we went to the church. The wedding dress was a rental, but it was brand new! I was the first to wear it so I felt special :)

This is a dress I changed into during the banquet. Another red Chinese dress. This one was custom made for me when I went to China a few months ago.

Last dress is just a lavender, sparkly, puffy evening gown for the cake, bouquet toss and saying thanks and good byes to the guests. Note how tired I looked. I had been up for 15 hours by then.

I have learned a lot from planning this wedding. I will be talking about the venues we chose, some DIY wedding projects this week. I know a few of you are planning weddings too! Let me just say that things go by quickly! First tip? Don't procrastinate! :)
