Important Do’s and Don’ts For Your Chinese Traditional Dress or Qun Gua

Qun Gua has a long history of over 100 years. Its origins can be traced back to the Guangdong area during the Qing dynasty, and through the years, its popularity spread all over mainland China. Today it’s still deemed a very important garment for weddings because of the history and heritage it carries. Naturally, because the qun gua is very important, there are some unspoken rules that come with bearing it on your wedding day. Here are some of the do’s and don’ts to keep in mind so you can avoid doing anything inappropriate with your traditional dress.

 

Don’t

 

  • Don’t try both garments at the same time during your dress fitting.

You must try the top jacket and bottom dress separately, because you can only wear qun gua once in a lifetime. If you try the full set during your dress fitting, this means you will be getting married for the second time on your wedding day.

  • Don’t wear makeup that is too simple.

Because the qun gua is red and represents happiness, brides cannot wear makeup that is too simple makeup–you want to avoid looking too pale amidst the very elaborate dress. Of course nowadays, some brides prefer minimal makeup. This is fine as long as you at least put some lipstick and mascara on.

  • Don’t let pregnant women or people whose parents just passed away touch the dress.

Pregnant women and those whose parents just passed away cannot touch qun gua because it will be bad luck for the bride.

Traditionally decorations for red Chinese banquets are very monochromatic, with the color red taking over almost everything–this can be quite overwhelming! So why not use red in more subtle ways, suggests Timeless Event Design? Here, instead of the usual backdrop, the couple’s initials spotlight was shone on pale curtains instead, with lush floral arrangements on the stage, providing more depth visually. Also, rather than an all-red floral arrangement, mixing red with pink flowers will instantly give a more soft and romantic look.

 

  • Rock a red outfit for the Tea Ceremony and toasting.
