An Asian themed wedding or bridal shower is a wonderful opportunity to blend creative ideas originating from different cultural traditions. Create an immersive experience for your guests by capturing some of that cultural heritage.
Vivid colors such as red and orange mixed with the golden color of wood will give you a good start. Your decor should include fans, lanterns, parasols, and touches of bamboo throughout your venue. You may also want to include elephant statues, especially those with raised trunks which are considered to be a source of luck and good fortune. In blooming season, cherry blossom branches make splendid table centerpieces!
You shouldn’t have any difficulties finding great foods to serve. A dim sum feast with lots of dumplings is quite an exciting choice! Sushi is also a wonderful idea to consider. The great advantage of sushi is that it can be prepared in advance. Guests can easily help themselves and pick their favorites. For dessert, fresh exotic fruits serve on a wood board, almond and fortune cookies, and to top it off, a large mooncake! Complement the foods with sake, and offer your guests unique, quality tea to discover with desserts.
