Your wedding may consist of many events (bridal shower, welcome dinner, and next-day brunch being just a few), but the ceremony is obviously the most important one. The ceremony is a terrific place to blend cultural and religious traditions, but many couples struggle with how to seamlessly integrate them.
I recently designed a wedding for a couple who wanted to include the bride's Korean traditions along with the groom's Jewish ones. The bride was inspired by images of the Hanbok, the customary Korean dress, and its soft, muted pastel tones. We incorporated those colors into the floral decor by using lilac, mock orange, dogwood, and other spring blooms. In honor of the groom's Jewish tradition, we constructed a chuppah. Instead of using the standard cloth, we cut Korean fabric into long ribbons and loosely wove them together to create a ceiling. Isn't the result gorgeous?
Are you struggling with a similar dilemma?
