Stephanie's tips:

Overcome cultural challenges: "There were definitely a few challenges, since there are some big differences between the cultures. For example, in Chinese tradition, the groom with his family would normally go to the bride's family's house to pick up the bride to take her to the wedding. In American tradition, it's bad luck for the bride and groom to see each other before the wedding."


Don't be afraid to break with tradition: "There's such an opportunity to truly make your wedding 'your own'. It's customary to change dresses in Asian weddings, but instead of the traditional Chinese red dress, I opted to change into a more casual wedding dress to party in."
