Your ceremony:

It's fabulous Feng Shui to invite Mother Nature to your wedding by holding your ceremony at a beach, garden or park. Everyone relaxes, there's harmony in the air and you save enough for a good house deposit or dream honeymoon. 

The venue:  

There should not be any dark spots or corners or this would become an obstacle for  chi energy to flow freely. Therefore, if this happens you should place a plant by it or a light towards it.

The reception:

The set up of your reception is very important as well. There should be no rectangle or square tables in your reception area, as the hard, sharp angles create a feeling of conflict. Round or oval tables are perfect choices. Make sure the entire room is lit up. Dark areas hinder the Chi energy from flowing freely around the room. 

The Flowers:

The flowers bouquet each holds a different meaning.  A lily can increase sensuality, A rose for romance, A sweat pea for creativity, Ivy is good for vitality, Ranunculus can help with prosperity, Snapdragons enhance spirituality, Tulips are good for the ambitious, Cosmos for those who value family and friends and quince for partners looking for new opportunities. Choose the one that is most appealing to you. We are always drawn naturally to a particular color, shape or scent. 

The Accessories:

Everyone knows clear quartz crystals are Feng Shui cures. Not so many know that crystal dinnerware and chandeliers are also celestial cures, because they reflect light. For luck, take wedding photos under crystal chandeliers, add crystal candlesticks to your bridal table or include sparkling crystal tableware on your gift registry. You could wear crystals on your dress, veil or shoes. Crystal beading also looks exotic rimming tea lights on tables! 

The color scheme:

The color you choose for your wedding will set the mood, and reflect you as a couple. Here is a list of popular wedding day colors and the feng shui meanings.

Red: Not only is it a traditional Chinese wedding color -- accenting your wedding day with red also creates a strong atmosphere of love and romance. 

Pink: Perfect for a younger couple, pink evokes a sense of fun playfulness and lightheartedness.

 

 

Purple and violet: Good for a smaller, more intimate wedding celebration with close family and friends, purples give off a very sexy, passionate vibe.

Black and white: A favorite combination for creating positive feng shui, black and white together represent a strong, balanced relationship -- as in the yin and the yang.

Blues and greens: A good color combo for a couple who has known each other for many years, or even a second wedding, because blues and greens promote a calm feeling.

Yellow: This bright, sunny color is the hue of cheerfulness and the perfect color to add to a less-than-well-lit ceremony or reception space. 

Orange: The ideal color for the couple with a large guest list, orange gives off a sense of warmth -- promoting conversation and a comfortable atmosphere.

Feng Shui Wedding: “ The Tradition”

Looking to have a Feng Shui wedding and still following "The Tradition". Feng Shui is this fabulous Asian philosophy that adapts itself to our western traditions and really let us have the best of both worlds.So for your wedding, you can have: 

Something new: Your Bridal Bouquet can affect energy surrounding you in different ways. The colour, the scent and even the shape of the flowers all can have different meanings.

 

 

Something old:Be careful with vintage gowns! Feng Shui enthusiasts are aware that previously owned items carry the previous owners energy - that may be fine if you know them but if not ensure your starting with a clean slate by clearing old chi away. Hang the gown up overnight by a bowl of sea salt, walk around the gown several times and ring bells around it, or burn sage close by!

Something borrowed:"If you borrow something, borrow something blue from someone with a happy marriage and a happy family." The idea is that the energy of that person's happy life will give good energy to you on your wedding day. And by combining the age-old traditions of "something borrowed" with "something blue" (blue is the feng shui color of peace and serenity), you'll promote wedding day feng shui.

Something blue: Do you always think of Red when you think of Feng Shui? Actually Blue is a fabulous colour for your wedding. Blue offers peace and serenity, so that Blue Garter is probably a really good idea! Every bride could use that extra boost!

Feng Shui wedding: “ Choosing the dress”

They say...it’s all about the dress!

According to feng shui, a color representing the element earth, such as very light beige or a cream color, would attract good luck and therefore would be ideal for your dress. Besides this, feng shui also recommends to wear or carry something red. Red is the color of happiness, and you would be attracting it by wearing at least one small detail in that color. Another great option is to wear a Yin & Yang dress for positive energy and  a strong balanced relationship.

Your fabric choices are also important.

The couple and their bridal party should wear a combination of heavy and light fabrics to add balance and good energy to their attire. Heavily textured fabrics, such as brocade, satin, and shantung,- describe a quiet energy -- considered the yin. Light fabrics, such as organza, tulle, and chiffon, are louder and more excitable materials -- those are the yang. 

Here are some examples:
