Summer will soon be upon us and that signals special celebrations like graduations and — weddings! My wedding reception was a casual-but-elegant garden affair that initially horrified my mother when we announced the plans. Though she later told me that it was much more than she expected, my parents no doubt would have been more comfortable with the standard multi-course Chinese banquet that defines Vietnamese weddings.
If you've been invited to a Vietnamese wedding this summer, here's an Ao Dai Vietnam blog posting on what to expect in terms of timeliness, gifts, food, and music.
Got any tips or experiences to share?
