Happy Chinese New Year!

Last year was the year of the horse in the Chinese zodiac calendar and so it seemed only fitting to share some horse themed wedding day inspiration and ideas for adding a little equestrian elegance to your big day.

 

This year is the year of the goat/sheep in the Chinese zodiac calendar, so instead of focusing on an animal theme, today is all about drawing inspiration from Chinese culture.

 

If you got engaged in Hong Kong, or the culture holds a special place in your heart, or if you’d like to add hints of your own Chinese heritage to your wedding day, then feast your peepers over this display of pretty patterned prints, Chinese lanterns, paper parasols, paper cranes, paper flowers and origami, Chinese fortune cookie favours and elegant tea ceremonies!

 

Add dashes of red to symbolise love, joy and prosperity or the Chinese happiness symbol, which represents the union of a husband and wife together with their families.

Equestrian Elegance – Horse Themed Wedding Ideas

Happy Chinese New Year!

2014 is the year of the horse in the Chinese zodiac calendar, so if ponies are a special part of your life, stop horsing around (sorry, couldn’t resist!) and add a little equestrian elegance to your big day.

 

The trend for equestrian chic rears its beautiful head season after season and a subtle nod towards horse-inspired detailing could create a unique wedding theme.

 

Horseshoes have long played a role in weddings; being an ancient symbol of good luck, a horseshoe is traditionally given to a bride on the morning of her wedding. Carry a lucky silver horseshoe with your bouquet or go one step further and use the symbol as a print throughout your wedding.

 

To really win the race, have a horse themed wedding and add colourful rosettes, ribbons and trophies to your big day decor and arrive by horse and carriage to your ceremony.
