As a wedding planner, you participate in style shoots on various themes.  So why one about the Lunar New Year?

Wendy – “Chinese New Year is always celebrated with friends and family at home, and eating together is always part of the 15 day celebrations.  Although food is a very important element at these get-togethers, often times the visual and aesthetic experience for our guests may be overlooked. For this very reason, our team wanted to showcase two very distinct looks that anyone can do at home.  These decorative ideas are really simple to execute, but they really do enhance the dining table tremendously.

What was designed can be featured at various other events such as a wedding, birthday party, anniversary dinner, and more.  It isn’t necessarily just for Lunar New Year dinners; the designs are transferable for other occasions.”

What is the one key piece of advice that you can offer to couples looking to design their own event?

Wendy – “My continuous inspiration is derived from my clients’ cultural backgrounds, their individual tastes, and impeccable styles. Hence the company name ‘Asian Fusion Weddings.’  However, there are also clients that want a very visually detailed rich celebration where the cultural aspects are not the main focus.  Hence ‘Formosa Events.’  Formosus in Latin means beautifully formed.  Therefore, when couples consult with this company, they desire more visual eye candy at their events.

In either case, it brings me great joy to be able to infuse their wishes into one creatively detailed and cohesive design; whether it be a gathering at home, an intimate affair and/or an extravagant wedding. The key for designing any celebrations is to maintain the color scheme, use a variety of textures and remember what the purpose of the event is all about!”
