With both of our backgrounds spanning the Pacific Ocean, we've incorporated both American (church ceremony and reception) and Asian (bridemaids "tormenting" the groomsmen, tea ceremony) marriage customs into our BIG day.
Likewise, we have also set up two registry options: an online registry at Bed Bath and Beyond and the option to receive red envelopes (紅包 or 利是) at our wedding reception (to learn more about this Chinese custom of ours, you can read it up here).
Because of our temporal living arrangements after the wedding, we prefer the traditional Chinese option of getting red envelops. However, whichever option you choose to give us, we will be deeply thankful for. Above all, what we treasure most is your presence, blessings, and prayers for our important day!"
