I can't remember how much information I've posted about Emily and SangKwun's wedding. So, at the risk of being repetitive, I'm going to share it again. SangKwun and Emily will have their Korean wedding ceremony on October 3rd at the Sheraton Walter Hill. Then on they will have their Chinese wedding in Emily's hometown (a little outside Beijing) on October 16th. And we're going to get to attend both weddings. SO exciting!

For the Korean wedding, Mark and I are both going to be wearing hanboks (traditional Korean clothing). So last week we went with Emily and SangKwun to a hanbok-maker and all of us picked out the fabrics, colors, and styles we want. We probably won't get them for another month or so, but I have to admit that I'm e.x.c.i.t.e.d. These hanboks are beautiful.

It's really overwhelming trying to choose - there are so many options.


Here's the hanbok-maker. And check out the samples behind her.


Mark was very sure that he wanted NO pink on his hanbok, so he and SangKwun ended ordering the exact same colors and very similar styles. The navy will be the pants, the cream is for the top and the light blue is the vest.


Emily and my hanboks may be somewhat similar too, but we chose a few different colors. If you can look at the picture sideways, that's Emily's design. And the guy's hanbok is almost exactly what SangKwun and Mark's will look like.


Then here are my colors. Unfortunately, I don't have the style picture, but it won't be that much different from Emily's. My skirt is going to be the pink color, and the top is white with a navy blue vest to match Mark's.


Pretty exciting stuff, right? I have an amazing video of Mark getting measured that I am in the process of uploading and will post shortly. :)

Oooh man, so awesome! I think you and Mark are going to have to wear your hanboks around all the time, just for kicks.
