Asian Wedding Theme: The Merging of Cultures
The current trend of merging cultures has worked its way into the wedding industry. A lot of couples are now choosing fashion and uniqueness in creating their special occasion. With creativity, sensitivity to different cultures, exercise of good judgment, and use of excellent materials, a fashionable and unique wedding, which merges two or more cultures, can be created.
An Asian wedding has an array of themes that could be used, or customized during a wedding. Ideas can be drawn from the tradition or components covered by Asian traditions and cultures, by anyone, including people from differing religions.
The food One of the main areas of focus when creating a wedding theme, is the type of food to serve. While it would be important to serve Asian food, in line with the chosen theme, one would also need to ensure that the chosen cuisine is palatable and aesthetically presented–attributes that Asian cuisines are known for. There are thousands of Asian menu’s to select from, so finding one that matches a chosen theme should not be much of a challenge.
The general theme
Your Asian wedding, would need to reflect a general idea. It could focus mainly on one Asian culture and tradition, slightly modified to reflect other cultures. For instance, a Chinese-themed wedding can reflect some European or American flavor.
The Wedding Dress:
The wedding dress and costumes should be coordinated to reflect the overall concept of the wedding. For Chinese wedding themes, for instance, the wedding dress should be made of colorful silk materials with golden threads, images of dragons and Chinese characters on them, while in the Indian wedding dress, Lehenga or Saree, should be made of colorful fabrics and decorative stitching patterns, reflective of the region the bride and groom come from.
The Hair Arrangement:
The hair arrangements and other decorations should reflect the general concept of the wedding as well. Asian brides usually arrange their hair in intricate patterns, like the Korean women, or in the use of a headdress decorated with Asian designs. For more ideas, you could try searching for Chinese, Japanese or other Asian-influenced head gears.
Regardless of the wedding venue-church or some other place-ornamentations should be used to accomplish the Asian wedding theme. Where church restrictions prohibits the use of ornaments, they can be used in the decoration of the reception area.
The venue The wedding venue should fit the overall theme of the wedding. For example, a Chinese wedding could better be held in an authentic Chinese restaurant, and a Japanese wedding in a Japanese garden.
