2024 Guide to Choosing the Perfect Color Qipao for Your Wedding

When deciding on the best color for a Qipao to wear to a wedding, or for your own wedding, it's important to consider cultural and family traditions. There are several popular colors for both traditional and modern Cheongsam dresses. Whether you're a guest seeking guidance from the wedding couple or a bride discussing with elder family members, choosing the right color is key.

Red - The Color of Fire: Red is a color rich in symbolism, representing luck, happiness, and joy. It signifies the summer season and the Southern direction and is believed to ward off evil. In traditional Chinese weddings or tea ceremonies, brides often wear red Qipaos adorned with dragon and phoenix hand embroideries, along with other auspicious patterns like lucky clouds and peonies. This choice reflects vitality, celebration, and fertility. Modern brides, however, tend to opt for wine red as a more contemporary alternative to pure red.

Is It Appropriate to Wear Red to a Wedding? Understanding Cultural appropriation.

Whether it's suitable to wear red to a wedding largely depends on your role - are you the bride or a guest? In Chinese weddings, it's customary for guests to avoid wearing red as it's traditionally reserved for the bride.

Yellow - The Imperial Earth Hue: In traditional Chinese culture, yellow signifies power, royalty, and prosperity. It's associated with late summer and the central direction. However, a yellow Qipao is generally not recommended for wedding guests. At Chinese traditional weddings, it's more appropriate for guests to opt for darker shades to respect cultural norms and the significance of the occasion.
Black - Water: In Chinese culture, the color black is often linked with notions of destruction, evil, profundity, disaster, and suffering. Traditionally seen as a harbinger of bad fortune, it's generally not advised to wear black to auspicious events like weddings.

However, in the context of Western weddings, a stylish twist can be applied to this color. A chic, fitted black Qipao adorned with gold Pankou can make a striking statement, especially when embellished with colorful and auspicious symbols. These can include motifs like butterflies, dragons, and phoenixes, which transform the garment into a stunning piece suitable for occasions like rehearsal dinners or reception hours, where the blend of cultures is celebrated.

White - Metal: White symbolizes purity in Chinese culture. But in some instances, it is associated with a color worn at funerals. For a Western wedding, a white Japanese silk Qipao with colorful trim and Pankou will bring a romantic and elegant feel to the look. A white Qipao is not recommended to wear at a Chinese wedding.
Blue - Water: carries symbolic meanings of spring, immortality, and progress. While a simple blue Qipao may not be the best choice for a rehearsal dinner or reception dress, it can be an excellent option for attending a wedding as a guest. Opt for a below-the-knee length Qipao adorned with delicate lace appliqué, creating a look that is both timeless and suitable for individuals of all ages.

If blue happens to be your favorite color and you wish to wear it for your rehearsal dinner attire, consider complementing it with Panjin embroideries and vibrant colors when selecting your wedding Cheongsam. This combination can make a significant fashion statement, celebrating your personal style and adding a touch of cultural richness to your wedding ensemble.

Green - Wealth, harmony, growth, and eco-friendliness: offers a versatile choice for Qipao attire, suitable for both rehearsal dinners and reception outfits. Whether you opt for emerald green or a lighter shade like baby green, you'll find that both are excellent choices.

Brides can select green silk Qipao dresses with varying fabric weights to suit different seasons and weather conditions throughout the year. The addition of hand embroideries on a green silk Qipao makes for a popular and timeless choice, making it a stylish and culturally significant option that transcends seasonal boundaries. This color and style combination embodies the essence of prosperity, balance, and natural beauty, making it a meaningful and elegant choice for any occasion.

Purple - divinity and immortality: is indeed a splendid color choice for various roles at a wedding, including the bride, mother of the bride, and wedding guests.

A purple Cheongsam dress adorned with colorful flower embroideries, particularly featuring pink flowers like cherry blossoms and lotus flowers, creates a harmonious and visually appealing ensemble. This combination not only embraces the cultural significance of the color purple but also represents the beauty and vitality associated with these symbolic flowers.
