Beautiful Black Wedding Dress

Would you wear a black wedding dress? For most of us, the white dress is {ahem} representative of a bride's traditional innocence, so there's no real necessity to wear one. My sister-in-law wore red, and looked fabulous. I chose to wear white, because I found it hard enough to decide on a white wedding dress, without throwing more variables, like colours, into the mix. I think for an urban wedding, a black wedding dress could look super-sophisticated. What do you think? Gorgeous pictures by Jen Huang.

Your Lucky Number

What's your lucky number? For the Chinese, it's the number eight, because ba in Mandarin and baht in Cantonese rhymes with the word prsoperity, which is pronounced fa or faht. Elegant couple Shining and Karl must be superstitious because they planned their big day for August 8th, 2008 (8/8/08). Their gorgeous celebration took place in New York, with one special guest - their dog Whiskey, who carried the rings to the altar in a pouch on his collar. Other ideas to copy include Shining's stunning dress with a simple sage green sash (a fantastic way to introduce colour), the bamboo holder for place markers, and the traditional Chinese bird cages. I love Shining's orchid and veil combo as well - there's nothing more elegant than an up-do! Endless thank-you's to Karen Wise for her photos - exceptional as ever!
