Feng Shui Wedding: "The perfect venue".

The perfect Venue is the one you dreamt about since you were little...

Feng Shui only adds a few elements to guide you in the direction to choose the perfect venue,  enhance it with the perfect accessories, display the perfect accents... and make all your efforts all worthwhile for your dream wedding.

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.
