Currently, weddings throughout the UK and the rest of Europe are being heavily influenced by themes from the orient. In keeping with the tradition of a wife bringing her husband luck and fortune, and red being the colour associated with such fortuitous beliefs.
Many well established high end couture designers are now expanding into Chinese weddings, and are releasing ranges that match the traditions of China, which are becoming increasingly accessible and fashionable throughout the western world.
Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta are two of the many designers who are now developing a link between both sides of the globe and demonstrating respect for Chinese tastes and beliefs. Here is an example of how stunningly beautiful this tradition can be translated into a western wedding style, providing an entirely unique theme.
