A Korean Filipino Fusion Wedding

Alan and I are heading off to Asia for my brother's weddings this summer. We are staying here! There are two ceremonies planned to incorporate traditions from both our cultures-- Korean, Chinese/Filipino. The more the merrier, right? I love weddings in general, but I'm so excited to experience the nuptials while learning more about the customs of our new extended family!
The bride and groom will be wearing the kind of tux and wedding gown we're accustomed to seeing here in the states (Linah will actually have 4 gowns. Can you believe that is traditional?! Umm, awesome!), the moms will be wearing traditional Korean handboks, the dads and groomsmen will be in barongs or tuxes, and my sister and I were given the option to wear whatever we please. Yeah, our future sis is pretty cool:)
Instead of going with a regular bridesmaid or cocktail dress, we've decided to have a little fun and just go with it! We've sent these beautiful images of a modern take of the traditional Korean hanbok to the dressmaker, and I'm so anxious to see how they turn out!
Alan and I had a traditional Catholic wedding, what kind of wedding did you have? Did you incorporate new or old, unfamiliar traditions? What did you wear?!

Traditional Korean dresses are the most beautiful thing I've seen. Very cool to incorporate. Oh my, and the food... Don't get me started.

I wore the least puffy dress I could find (this was very early 1990s.)
