Note: I do marriages of Chinese nationals to South African citizens.
Chinese brides don’t have just one wedding dress, but three! Imagine the dress stress there.
First, there’s the traditional embroidered slim-fitting qipao or cheongsam, usually in red, because red is a lucky colour in Chinese culture.
Next, the bride will wear a Western style white wedding dress.
Finally, the bride changes into a third dress for the wedding reception, usually a cocktail dress.
