Same Day Edits (video footage captured and edited on site and then shown at the wedding reception) are all the rage these days. So when I first saw this on Chinese Weddings by The Knot, I got chills. This was a video put together by the Australian Paper Cranes Production of a Chinese couple getting married in Australia.
I’ve been following Emilie and Fiona’s blog lately and I love the work they do – both wedding day coordination and stationery. Emilie and Fiona make up Pink Orchid Designs – a stationery and wedding day coordination company from Boston, MA.
Click here to view images from a recent October wedding in Las Vegas. The bride was marrying her Chinese fiance and wanted to honor the heritage (and her favorite color) while staying away from that infamous “Chinese red”.
Green Orchid Events is planning a modern wedding for October of this year and in honor of the groom’s Chinese heritage, the bride wanted to incorporate some subtle elements of the culture into their wedding. I suggested this cocktail napkin to the bride. She was happy because she knows her in laws would be touched by this simple gesture. These napkins are currently on sale at $17.99 for 100 napkins on TheKnot.com.
Welcome to Red Dress Weddings – a blog for the modern Chinese American bride. I’ve noticed that there are few resources out there for the Chinese bride when planning her modern day version of a traditional Chinese wedding. Hopefully, I can help those brides out there who would like to incorporate elements of their culture yet despise the bright “Chinese red” color!
