For a country that epitomises multiculturalism such as Singapore, we have a lot of decisions to make when it comes to weddings. Weddings are critical moments in a couple’s lives. The bride and groom often spend months, if not years preparing for the official union of themselves as a married couple. Documentation work aside, wedding preparations are known to be a real mountain of work. And as we all know what’s most important for a bride on the big day itself- the wedding dress must be perfect.
Being a multicultural country such as ourselves and Malaysia, we have our own ancestral customs and traditions to keep in mind for our wedding. But we could not help but be influenced by the white sparkling gown that we grow up seeing in movies. Traditional Chinese weddings usually have the bride and groom in red- the auspicious color of Chinese. True tradition calls for an overly accessorise, ornately decorated, heavy and bulky red wedding dress, but wedding dress designs have come a long way since then. They could not seem more out-of-style, especially when compared with our whiter alternatives of the west!
