- Wedding: June 2014 - British Columbia
Eccentric? Perhaps. Offbeat? Nay.
It’s an intercultural wedding, so there is no way we can incorporate traditions from each heritage/culture. For my Fiance and I, it’s acknowledging who and what matters to us. Even if we were to respect some of the cultural roots, I’m making sure the elements represents the true essence of who we are individually and together as a couple. (Example, my red dress or Kua is very simple. There’s no dragons nor phoenix on it.)
It’s far from being a WIC’s definition from a fairy-tale wedding. I’d say, it’s budget-friendly and sensible — as romantic as that sounds! Ha, ha! Hm, minimalistic is the word I’m looking for!
My attire has a nod to 1950s/1960s. Instead of a tiara, I’m wearing a vintage 1960s mantilla lace cap, with tulle veil flowing like a waterfall from the top. My dress is tea-length/ivory. My only criteria for my MOH’s and FGs’ dresses are that: they have to be something they would wear again.
My brother will be walking me down the aisle — since my dad’s passed on; he’s also going to be my bridesman, but will stand along FH during the ceremony. My ring-bearer will be our Scottish Terrier.
We’re skipping father/daughter dance for obvious reasons.
And.. our wedding will be uber kid-friendly! I mean, bubble blowers/guns, TV, popcorn, movies; separate kids’ room, which is right above a huge water-slide/swimming pool. It will probably feel like a huge family vacation/reunion instead of a wedding.
