Going for an ethnic or cultural wedding is definitely a great idea, especially for brides and grooms who have a special affinity for foreign things and unexplored routes. For some of us a white traditional wedding may seem to boring and predictable. And those who are interested in the uniqueness factor will surely find this wedding style too plain and dull for their taste.
This is one of the principal characteristic of modern couples: they are not willing to settle for less or for the standard style. They want originality for their wedding and we can understand why. No wedding is like another these days, especially those promoted by our wedding planners! They always manage to come up with new ideas and unique trends that the contemporary couple can easily respond at. One great and efficient way of planning and obtaining an original outstanding wedding is to follow a cultural style.
You can go African if you want something truly eccentric. Or, if you want to go even far back in time, you can get inspired from ancient Grecian and Roman weddings. The medieval style is ideal for those who want something even more focused on special customs and wedding rites. But what do you think of the Asian style? We know that many of you love this culture and their specific way of planning, decorating and celebrating a wedding. Many brides of today are fascinated about the Asian and Japanese type of wear and this is why they prefer something that original for their wedding! One of our favorite elements of a wedding that always looks amazing when designed in a cultural style is the cake.
We found a few stunning Asian inspired wedding cakes that you guys can use for your own inspiration. There are many things specific to the Asian style that you guys can use for your wedding theme. Focus on something romantic and pretty, like cherry blossoms. This motif would make a sensational selection for those who are having a spring time wedding outside the doors. From the same category of flowered wedding cakes we can also recommend the peony flower. Peonies are symbolic to Asian and Japanese weddings. They signify purity, grace, love and romanticism.
Another way to put the accent on the beauty of the Asian culture is to follow a butterfly theme. Butterflies signify new beginnings, spirituality, femininity, transformation and youthfulness. As for the colors, anything based on red, white, green and gold can fit. Pink is one of the cutest colors that are actually representative for Asian people. We also love those models with Asian hieroglyphs. They look whimsy and very original. Asian cakes can also feature dragons and snakes, as unique symbols of this culture.
