Lunar New Year 2018 Celebrations -A Wedding Editorial

Tomorrow is Lunar New Year Day. We are over the moon to show you this beautiful creative editorial to celebrate Chinese New Year submitted to us by WPIC alumni Wendy Lee of Asian Fusion Weddings!

The editorial ties in Asian heritage, blends in East and West decor elements, and the high end designers and features provide not only great design, but those that could be use at any type of celebration or event.

Question – As a wedding planner, you participate in style shoots on various themes.  So why one about the Lunar New Year?

Wendy – Chinese New Year is always celebrated with friends and family at home, and eating together is always part of the 15 day celebrations.  Although food is a very important element at these get-togethers, often times the visual and aesthetic experience for our guests may be overlooked.  For this very reason, our team wanted to showcase two very distinct looks that anyone can do at home.  These decorative ideas are really simple to execute, but they really do enhance the dining table tremendously.

What was designed can be featured at various other events such as a wedding, birthday party, anniversary dinner, and more.  It isn’t necessarily just for Lunar New Year dinners.  This is what makes our table designs fabulous – they are transferable for other occasions.

Question – What was the inspiration for this style shoot?

Wendy – Thinking about all those Lunar New Year family dinners over the years, personally, I was ultimately inspired by two specific things.  First, Pantone’s colour of year for 2017; greenery.  This was the reason green was selected in the colour palette.  Secondly, the question was – would it be possible to have a Chinese inspired shoot without featuring traditional red?  I believe our team was successful in demonstrating a modern interpretation of Asian decor and styling when you look at the video and pictures.

The other design feature that our team encapsulated was the Yin and Yang concept.  One table featured a bold approach with the use of Bonsai trees.  It translated into a more sophisticated masculine feel.  The second table donated a more feminine touch with an abundance of flowers in shades of soft pinks and purples.

Question – What is the one key piece of advice that you can offer to couples looking to design their own event?

Wendy – My continuous inspiration is derived from my clients’ cultural backgrounds, their individual tastes and impeccable styles. Hence the company name “Asian Fusion Weddings”.  However, there are also clients that want a very visually detailed rich celebration where the cultural aspects are not the main focus.  Hence “Formosa Events”.  Formosus in Latin means beautifully formed.  Therefore, when couples consult with this company, they desire more visual eye candy at their events.

 In either case, it brings me great joy to be able to infuse their wishes into one creatively detailed and cohesive design; whether it be a gathering at home, an intimate affair and/or an extravagant wedding.  The key for designing any celebrations is to maintain the colour scheme, use a variety of textures and remember what the purpose of the event is all about.
