The Orient presents beautiful cultures, which is why some couples draw inspiration from the Orient as they plan their wedding.
If you're planning a Japanese-inspired affair, the easiest way to channel your theme is by incorporating cherry blossoms into your decor. The delicate blooms are not only pretty, but they're good representations of spring and new beginnings. You can also incorporate other Japanese elements--like obi belts--into your or your entourage's attire.
Chinese elements are also popular in Pinoy weddings. Consider using bright happy colors like red or orange, which are believed to be auspicious for your special day. Other details like chopsticks and fortune cookies are also pretty easy to incorporate in your reception.
Some of the couples we've featured showcased Oriental details. For ideas, see our gallery below.
