When I planned my wedding, my biggest challenge was incorporating my culture into the decor/theme of the wedding. Traditional Vietnamese weddings use red and gold colors to symbolize luck and fertility. I wasn’t too keen on this color combo though. I found myself more attracted towards pastels and muted colors.

Just last week I came across cherry blossoms in MSW’s spring issue and I thought it was absolutely brilliant and would go perfectly with Asian wedding themes (why didn’t I think of that before?). With the cherry blossom season coming (end of March-April), this fragile flower would make a gorgeous theme. It’s very elegant and feminine and you need only a few branches to create a tall centerpiece (I also really like the use of the branches as a place card holder with blossom-shaped escort cards tied to them). The only caveat is the singular pink note. With the above board, I aimed for more white to tone down the monochromatic pink. Black, dark brown, green, and even a deep navy blue can also make great accents.
