I’m back with my first blog post as a married woman! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen a first look of our wedding. Today, I’m sharing all my wedding weekend outfits, including my wedding dress! If you want to see what I wore to my bridal shower, click here. For other wedding related posts, you can check them out here.
My bridesmaids and I got brunch two days before the wedding at Zinc DTLA. None of my bridesmaids are local to LA, so it was nice to have some girl time before the busy weekend. The weather was perfect for this flowy skirt.
CHINESE TEA CEREMONY + REHEARSAL LUNCH + REHEARSAL
The day before our wedding, we had a Chinese Tea Ceremony at my family’s house. I swapped out the traditional white for red, as red represents good luck and happiness in Chinese culture. I wore this red dress that looks a lot more expensive than it is and is perfect for the holiday season. For accessories, I wore a gold ring that my grandmother passed down to me and my mom’s gold necklace.
NIGHT OUT WITH BRIDAL PARTY
The night before the wedding, we went out with all our bridesmaids and groomsmen for dinner and drinks in DTLA. The little white dress I wore is not pictured, which I’m bummed about because it’s such a cute dress. Note, this dress is super short and tighter in the bust area, so this dress might not work for everyone.
The morning of our big day I wore these super soft white pajamas to get ready in. I got it in size S and it fits perfectly. Most retailers are selling these pajamas for $122, but I found mine for just $85! If you’re interested, click the link below for the best price.
Now for the final reveal, my wedding dress! I wore a Watters wedding dress with gold heels, a simple veil, and no jewelry besides my engagement ring. I was obsessed with my dress from the moment I put it on, so it deserves its own blog post later.
My dress was made of so much fabric that it didn’t do it justice to bustle it. I performed a surprise hula for Tim, so I really needed my train to be out of the way. As much as I wanted to wear my wedding dress all night, I ended up changing into this white jumpsuit for the last few hours of the night. Compared to other wedding attire, the jumpsuit was relatively affordable. I got mine in a size 0 and it fit me like a glove after I hemmed the bottom.
That’s it! Be sure to follow me on Instagram or check back soon for more wedding related posts. I’ve got so much more to share!
