VIETNAMESE ENGAGEMENT CEREMONY COSTUME
Ao dai is not a mandatory dress choice in the wedding ceremony between the two spouses. However, in Vietnamese culture, betrothal is a ritual belonging to the traditional custom of the nation, the groom asks the bride’s hand for marriage. Therefore, Ao Dai is the most suitable choice that is both graceful and charming, still, equally subtle and discreet. Later, wearing Ao dai in the engagement ceremony became a custom of Vietnamese people.
Today’s wedding dress always has a harmonious interference between traditional values (expressed in stylized patterns of lotus flowers, cranes, communal roofs…) and modern breath (expressed in modern design and unique materials such as corset dress, padded shoulders, studded details, lace fabric, tulle…).
