double happiness

Chinese Wedding

Global Weddings

Welcome to Day 1 of the Global Weddings Week Series! Today’s ‘double happiness’ wedding inspiration board is inspired by China and Chinese wedding traditions. Chinese wedding traditions are as complex as China is but one common thread is a red and gold color scheme because red symbolizes good luck and gold (an imperial color) symbolizes wealth and happiness!
