Najbolj pogosta vprašanja o poroki v Koreji

Kako bo izgledala vajina poroka?

Najina poroka bo kombinacija korejske in slovenske tradicije, nekakšna mednarodna kombinacija vsega. Dogajala se bo na prostem, na posesti moževe družine. Dogodek bo vodil in povezoval eden izmed najinih prijateljev. Nekdo izmed staršev (verjetno njegov oče) bo predstavil kratko zgodovino naju kot para, vmes se bova sprehodila do osebe, ki bo dogodek povezovala. Sledila bo zaobljuba in nato se bo sam obred končal.

Kakšne poročne prstane sta izbrala?

Nisva jih in zna se zgoditi, da jih sploh ne bova imela. Razmišljava namreč o tem, da bi denar raje prihranila za potovanja.

Kdo bo vajina priča?

Tudi prič ne bo- oziroma bodo priče vsi udeleženci poroke. Baje jih ne bo malo.

Ali bodo gostje po poroki na vaju stresali riž?

Ne vem, če lahko sploh opišem, kako začudeno in presenečeno me je hkrati moj mož pogledal, ko sem ga za hec vprašala, če gostje v Koreji po obredu slučajno na mladoporočenca tudi mečejo riž. Mislim, da se vsake toliko časa še vedno popraska po glavi in se sam pri sebi sprašuje, zakaj na svetu bi nekdo naokoli metal hrano.

Ali boš imela tradicionalno korejsko obleko?

Da, vendar le za slikanje po obredu. Za sam obred in glavno slikanje bom imela klasično belo, trenutno pa se pogovarjamo o tem, da bi se potem preoblekla v tradicionalno korejsko obleko hanbok. V njej pa bosta zagotovo moževa starša.

Kaj bo imela oblečeno hčerka?

Glede na to, da bo takrat stara skoraj 9 mesecev in se bo plazila in premikala prav povsod, si predstavljam, da bo kakršnakoli obleka na koncu postala pisana. 🙂

Kakšna oblačila morajo izbrati gostje?

Takšna, da se počutijo udobno in lepo. Gre za mednarodno poroko, tako da gostom prepuščava svojo izbiro. Le v popolnoma črni ali popolnoma beli upam, da kdo ne pride. 🙂

Ali bo treba plesat?

Ne, plesa ne bo. Trenutno se pogovarjamo o glasbeni spremljavi, vendar se še nismo zedinili glede tega.

Ali bo zabava po poroki? 

Zabave v takem smislu, kot jo poznamo v Sloveniji, ne bo. Hrana, mize in stoli bodo razporejeni zunaj in ponavadi po obroku gostje odidejo domov. Vsaj večina korejskih bo šlo, morda pa se kaj spontanega razvije ob prisotnosti ostale mednarodne zasedbe. 🙂

Kako dolgo bo trajala poroka?

Moj mož pravi, da bo obred trajal kakšno uro, potem pa še kakšno uro ali dve kosilo.

Kdo bo vodil poroko?

Vodil jo bo eden izmed prijateljev, sam potek zaobljube pa bo po vsej verjetnosti izpeljal njegov oče.

Kako boš spakirala poročno obleko za na avion?

Imela jo bom v ročni prtljagi, saj poznam primer, ko je poročna obleka potovala v ‘velikem’ kovčku, pa se je vmes prtljaga izgubila in obleka nikoli ni prispela na cilj. Mogoče jo bom obesila kar na otroški voziček. 😉

Preparation for wedding in South Korea

It will be my second time that I will visit South Korea. First visit happened last year when I met my husband’s parents and visited winter Olympics. This year the main reason for my travel is for me even bigger than Olympics. We are getting married in Korea!
For Slovenian language press here.

Wedding dress
I browsed million websites and visited few wedding salons to find the dress which makes me feel well with. I wanted to get something classy but also convenient and comfortable to hold my daughter who will be 9 months old at that time. I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed the fitting and selecting dresses. It was very unique time which I never imagined before that I will accompanied by my daughter, who turned out to be a person with very precise taste. At the end I bought a white dress in Slovenia and in Korea I will probably also wear Korean traditional dress hanbok.

Wedding location
The wedding ceremony will be happening outside at my husband’s family property in Gyeongju city. Their family house is a Korean traditional noble house hanok and is listed as premium hanok accommodation certified by Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism and the Korea Tourism Organization. Hanokstay means that tourists and visitors can stay at their home while they travel around. Their house is around 450 years old.

Bureaucratic challenges and official documents
Before we leave, I have to prepare a large range of papers and documents which me and my daughter need in Korea. Most of the documents are in Slovenian and they need to be translated or even legally verified. Not very amusing part of the wedding preparation.

Organization and invitations for wedding guests
My husband is in daily touch with his parents as they coordinate things with wedding organizers. It is expected to be around 500-800 guests on the wedding from his side. As an introvert I have no idea how I will deal with it but I am glad there will be also my parents, brother and closest friends from Slovenia, China and France.

Pre-wedding photography
We are thinking to make a pre-wedding photography in Slovenia. If I succeed to arrange my dress and shoes on time, we will consider Bled as a photo location. It is quite well known also among Koreans and it sounds a bit of luxurious destination. But first we also need to agree about photographer and photo style. There is a slightly difference between what kind of photos I like and what my husband prefers.
