Anyone who has attended an Asian wedding knows it can easily rival the extravagance one would expect from an A-list celebrity wedding. An Asian Wedding can best be described as a western wedding on steroids – everything is bigger, better, and created to give guests a memorable celebration that will blow them away.
For one, the guests at an Asian wedding go way beyond a celebration between family and friends. Asian parents plan a bash to celebrate their offspring’s union by inviting family, friends, neighbours, business partners and colleagues.
Modesty is not part of an Asian wedding itinerary and can expect from 500 to 1000 guests at an average Asian wedding. This opulence includes everything from the wedding invitations, the rich tapestry of the wedding outfits, and of course the beautiful venue décor.
Let’s take a closer look at what goes into the unforgettable party that is an Asian wedding.
What are Asian Weddings?
Strictly speaking, Asian weddings are celebrated on such a grand scale because it is meant to be the first and last wedding the bride and groom will ever have. This eternal union is also sealed with opulent décor and rituals rooted in the bride and groom’s specific Asian culture.
An Asian wedding will include traditions that stem from the ancient cultures in countries like India, Pakistan, China, Vietnam, and Japan. While a Chinese wedding will focus on the red-colour-themed party aspect of the celebration, an Indian wedding may be filled with numerous religious ceremonies and rituals over several days.
These are just a few of the cultural differences between Asian countries. So let’s take a closer look at some of the specific traditions associated with Asian weddings.
What are Some of the Different Asian Wedding Traditions?
The richness of the Indian tradition is one that is not only admired but also often copied, by Western culture. The beautiful decorations showcased by an Indian bride on her wedding day is made from henna and takes painstaking hours to paint onto her skin.
By contrast, in China, the colour red plays an integral part of the wedding celebration and festivities as it symbolises happiness, vitality, and good fortune. Therefore, guests can expect to see red (in a good way!) at every physical aspect of the wedding, including invites, wedding venue decorations, and even presents. A Chinese wedding will also have red lanterns released during the wedding ceremony, as a symbolic token of the newlywed couple’s love.
Meanwhile, a traditional Japanese wedding will have a show-stopping ceremony where the bride will wear an embroidered silk kimono covered in purple Iris flowers – a symbolic colour in Japan for the colour of love. This colour will also form part of the wedding venue’s décor theme.
