Asian weddings are renowned for being spectacular events, full of colour, personality, and sparkle. They are an incredibly visceral experience, too, but this means that a lot of planning has to be involved to ensure things are on track. With this in mind, here are some tips for you, whether you are deciding on an Asian wedding for cultural, religious, or thematic reasons - let’s take a closer look!
Focus on the spectacular
As we mentioned in the intro, Asian weddings tend to be full of colour and excitement. So, concentrating on the fun is a vital part of the planning process. Try thinking of a theme that matches you and your fiance’s personalities and makes the event as memorable as possible for your guests. Dancing, music performances, and even puppet shows are all big hits at Asian weddings - there isn’t much room for shrinking violets! - so take a look around the web and seek out some inspiration.
Book your venue
When looking for somewhere for your reception, it’s important that your Asian wedding venue has had some experience of hosting similar events before. The decor will be a centerpiece of the event, so you want to choose a site that is easy-going when it comes to creating the perfect space - some wedding venues can be a little stuffy when it comes to hosting events. Don’t forget to ask about extras, either. You might want to have a firework display, for example, or maybe let off some Chinese lanterns, but you will need to get permission first in the vast majority of cases.
Show off your foodie culture
Food and drink are a vital part of any wedding, of course, but with an Asian wedding, you can really go to town in showing off the best of Asian culture. Look for a reputable caterer that is able to dish up tasty cultural dishes - even Indian or Chinese street food can go down a treat. If you are non-drinkers, think about coming up with some exciting ‘mocktails’ - soft drinks that match your wedding colours, for example.
Give guests plenty of time
An Asian wedding is a great excuse for people to get dressed up - a lot more so than putting on the standard wedding suits and outfits that a typical, western wedding entails. But if you want your guests to make that extra effort, make sure you give them plenty of time - and some advice on where to go shopping. Be wary of asking your guests to spend too much money, however, and instead ask them to focus on a particular colour or theme for their dress.
Finally, make sure you are choosing a wedding photographer with experience of shooting Asian weddings. Take some time out to speak with them about your various needs and ensure that they know what sort of shots you want. They will have a lot of organising to do on the day, and you will be incredibly busy, so it’s important to get the details arranged beforehand.
Good luck with the Asian wedding - and for a happy marriage!

Congratulations on getting engaged! Your wedding is going to be just perfect, we know it already. But just before you get caught up in the whirlwind that is wedding planning and you find yourself scrolling through Pinterest for 3 weeks straight, don’t forget to celebrate your engagement.
Yeah, your wedding day is going to be one of the most magical days of your life, but don’t ignore the day one of you said ‘yes’, the day you committed to each other, the day that your partner spend ages planning, the day that saw them suffer from a sweaty palms and a dripping forehead.
Seriously, your wedding plans can be put on hold for a minute. You can get your wedding book out next week. For now, though, whoah, you need to do something special to celebrate the day it all began; officially anyway.
Bubbles, Bubbles And More Bubbles
If there is one rule that overrules them all it is that no engagement is complete without some champagne bottles being popped and plenty of fizz being consumed. Champagne is the ultimate celebratory drink, and this is the ultimate of celebrations, the one that is personal and intimate before you share your love with the world. So grab a bottle of your favorite fizz, get your nearest and dearest, try sabering the top and make a toast to now and forever. Of course, champagne isn’t to everyone’s taste. But that’s okay. There is a reason why tequila was invented.
The Just-Engaged Shot
When you realise you are soul-mates and say that cement that fact with a huge, resounding, all-singing and all-dancing yes, you get a glow. We can’t explain it, but you glow. Unrelenting happiness and adulation do that to a person, so capture that on film. It doesn’t even have to be an official shoot. It could just be a picture of the two of you wearing your Tacori engagement rings on your wedding fingers and raising them to the camera while you lock lips. Selfies, professional shoots, disposable camera photo, it doesn’t matter; it just matters that you have a memory of the moment you said yes! That’s what is important.
Relax, Chillax & Get PamperedNews has broken, word has spread, the whole world now knows about your engagement, and that means all eyes are going to be on you, especially if you’re having an engagement party. You are going to be the center of attention and people will be looking at your enviable levels of happiness with utter envy, and they will be studying that rock on your finger with the same jealousy as a jewel thief. That is why it is so imperative you look your best. Selfies with the bride and groom to be are going to become a thing, so get pampered. Run away for a couples spa weekend, or take your best girlfriends to get massaged and pedicured and learn what reflexology is. Whatever it is, enjoy this time in your life, and enjoy it for all it is worth. This is going to be one of the best moments of your life and you don’t want it to escape without enjoying every single bit of it.
