In Chinese themed weddings as opposed to a western wedding, the color white is considered bad luck as white in traditional Chinese culture is the color of mourning and death. Both red and black colors are good as they represent luck and prosperity and the color gold represents fortune. Remember to bear this in mind while planning your wedding and selecting your wedding favours. Asian themed wedding keepsakes typically feature bright festive colors and motifs taken from nature. A few suggestions to consider for a Chinese themed wedding are: miniature take out boxes filled with fortune cookies, gold place cards held in place by red place card holders, lucky bamboo stalks, chopsticks, knick knacks with the double happiness character, brocade sachets or boxes, red mini lanterns, hand held fans, red envelopes with lucky coins tucked inside, or Asian themed candies. These are a few of the many Asian themed favours available in the market today.
Zen is the philosophy of simplicity of form and function carried on in every aspect of life. For a Japanese or Zen themed wedding, the couple should look for simplicity, elegance and natural materials when making arrangements for their wedding and selecting their Japanese inspired wedding favours. Crane motifs are a normal feature used in many Japanese weddings often adorning wedding kimonos and Japanese wedding decorations. This is because of the fact that cranes mate for life and are loving partners in all seasons as long as they live. Hopefully this would also be true for the soon to be wed couple. A number of wedding favour ideas that are nice are: Japanese paper lanterns, chopsticks, hand fans, sake gift sets, lucky cat ornaments and figurines and cherry blossom designed items
