Any Asian bridal must include symbols, and there are many traditional and contemporary elements to add into the big time. There are countless ways to add a touch of significance to your ceremony and reception, from the man leading the procession with fireworks and gongs to” collect” his wedding to using family members to comb the couple’s tresses before she walks down the aisle.

The Chinese character (shuangxi) is perhaps one of the most recognizable symbols incorporated into Asian weddings. It is composed of two connected copies of the Chinese character for happiness and is seen throughout the celebration from wall hangings to cake toppers. This Chinese wedding symbol symbolizes joy and prosperity, and reflects the hopes of the new couple’s marriage.

Chinese ceremony icons include dragons and phoenixes, which are also popular. The phoenix, which combines the qualities of yin and yang, is a female image while the lion stands for masculinity and wealth. To symbolize the union of two families and their intertwined prospects, these creatures are frequently portrayed up.

Much feng li xiang, which can be translated as “may the dragon and phoenix bring you great fortune” or “abundance brought by the untuk and thatin,” is written inscribed on this ancient elegance. A dragon and a phoenix are depicted together in the pendant’s octagonal shape, demonstrating their combined power and strength. This would be the ideal contrast to any woman’s series of antiques.
