Asian Wedding Favor Ideas
Asian themed weddings are on the rise, and they aren't just limited to those people of Asian heritage. Many brides are finding themselves drawn to the festivity of Chinese themed weddings or the simplicity of "Zen" Japanese weddings. Perhpas you practice a bit of feng shui in your home, to bring peace and tranquility. Or perhpas your tastes reflect the traditional Chinese style and glamour. Whatever your tastes dictate, an Asian themed wedding is a wonderful way to celebrate your marriage connected to your values and lifestyle.
If you're considering an Asian themed wedding, here are some ideas to inspire your Asian themed wedding favors.
In Chinese themed weddings, white is considered bad luck (the color of death) and red and black are good (colors of luck and prosperity). You'll want to keep that in mind while planning your wedding and selecting your wedding favors. Asian wedding favors typically feature bright colors and nature motifs. Some ideas to consider for your Chinese themed wedding are: red and gold place cards held in an Asian place card holder, take out containers filled with fortune cookies, lucky bamboo stalks, chopsticks, items with the double happiness character, brodcade sachets or boxes, red mini lanterns, hand held fans, red envelopes with lucky coins tucked inside, or Asian themed mints and candies are just some ideas you could select for your favors.
In Japanese or Zen themed weddings, brides should look for simplicity, elegance and natural materials when planning their wedding and selecting their Japanese inspired wedding favors. Crane motifs are used in Japanese weddings, wedding kimono and Japanese wedding decorations because cranes mate for life and are devoted to their partners in all seasons. Some wedding favor ideas to consider are: Japanese paper lanterns, hand fans, chopsticks, sake gift sets, lucky cat ornaments or figurines, Kaeru frog charms, cherry blossom designed items, or even incense cones or sticks.
Whatever your Asian wedding style, make sure your wedding favors are infused with Far East flair to complement your theme. With a little thought and a bit of searching, you're sure to find your perfect Asian themed wedding favor.
