You know what’s so awesome about Chinese weddings? The brides get to live their princess at the ball dreams and choose a bevy of pastel-colored poofy gowns where ruffles and hoops reign supreme. I often wondered, if the Hubs and I were to conduct our nuptials in my motherland, would I be swept up in visions of pastels and satins and spend the majority of my reception trying to get myself in and out of a sea of taffeta? Most definitely! Not!

But this custom does give me plenty of opportunity to switch things up when it comes to painting the likenesses of the bride in her myriad gowns on the dolls. Oh, and the groom too.
