Traditional Korean Wedding


One of my readers, gnightgirl, (if you haven't read her blog, This Just In you absolutely need to go there and scroll down to read about how she got rid of an overly-friendly drunk in downtown Champaign last week) wonders if my wife and I are going to Korea for our son's traditional Korean wedding next spring. Absolutely! We're even going to rent traditional Korean wedding costumes for the occasion, and I'm going to memorize the traditional Korean blessing recited by the groom's father. I'm not sure what the parents' costumes look like, but Bomina sent us a picture of how the bride and groom dress (photo left). I'm sure our costumes will be along the same lines, except that I will look distinguished, not goofy. One can always hope. Or wish.

Maybe this is a silly thing to bring up but I saw a "traditional Korean wedding" on Gilmore Girls last fall. The attire was stunning!

And I admire your dedication - learning the Korean blessing, etc. That's wonderful!

That's great news-the marriage and the anticipated wedding. And what an outfit - typical for wedding attire; you can't and don't wear it again, anywhere.

Who will be teaching you the Korean blessing?

Bomina will teach it to me.

I read this a few days ago when I was supposed to be working. Shhh! I can hardly wait for pictures! Perhaps a dress rehearsal downtown?

Lucky kids!

Sounds like it will surely be a blessed and wondrous occasion--especially with parents like you on hand.

Yes, we want to see pictures! Lots of them!

Just stopping by to say happy birthday. Not sure of the exact date, but I know it was sometime this month.

Crockhead? Are you in? I miss Aunt Tillie. Don't stand on ceremony, Korean or otherwise. Post something. Babble.
