If you are getting married, you can give your wedding a striking touch by adding an interesting theme to it.

Why go for a Chinese Theme for your Indian wedding?

It will add a unique and fascinating oriental touch to your special day. One thing that is common between Indian and Chinese weddings is the elaborate use of the colour red, so you can cash that to your advantage without fretting much on planning. We Indians have a said-unsaid love for Chinese cuisine. Though most us prefer the Indian-fused versions of the famous Manchurians, gravies and noodles.

Want to know how you can start planning for a Chinese theme wedding? Here are a few ways by which you can adopt the theme to your own unique style for a memorable wedding.

Chinese Décor

You can add red and gold colour to your décor. Ask your wedding coordinator to use Chinese lanterns to light up the venue. This is one of the easiest ways to jazz up your wedding. You can also get Chinese calligraphy invitations printed on red and gold paper. Get a large Chinese dragon or a phoenix centrepiece that will hang over the dais along with red tablecloths and lotus blossoms all over the room. Get some bamboo shoots to add luck to your affair. Or, use decorative fans to deck up your venue. Use paper or silk for your décor as these are the materials that go best for a Chinese theme.

Chinese Cuisine

Indians love Chinese food. So, talk to your caterer to get some Indian-fused versions of Chinese dishes, like gobhi Manchurian and paneer noodles, apart from the authentic oriental cuisine. You can also ask your wedding planner to get calligraphy printing done on the table spread, table mats and napkins that are to be used in the dinning space. You can also go for crockery with Chinese motifs on it.

You can arrange for a small Indian buffet too for guests who prefer traditional food, but frankly, Indo-Chinese food is liked by everyone so it should not be a problem.

We suggest you to go for something like Chinese paper fans or foldable paper lanterns that can be imprinted with the bride and the groom’s name and the wedding date.  You can also try printed chopsticks, bamboo coasters, vase with Chinese motifs, or a Feng Shui item. Another fun and eco-friendly alternative is to gift each guest with a lucky bamboo plant.
