Chinese weddings are a truly spectacular, once in a lifetime opportunity, at Scarlet we understand the cultural pillars that go into your dream modern Chinese wedding. If you’ve recently become engaged to the love of your life, it’s time to start thinking about your luxury Chinese wedding - from the dress to the menu and centrepieces, so much detail goes into planning a wedding, which is why Scarlet, who are Chinese Wedding planners in London are here to help. 

From hiring a renowned photographer to take your pre-wedding photos in London or Venice, to having a Chinese wedding in Paris or opting to have a flying bridal veil. Here are some of the top Chinese Wedding trends you may want to incorporate into your wedding. 

1. Flying Bridal Veils

According to Chinese cultural magazine Shanghaiist, an emerging wedding trend that is becoming more prevalent in Chinese weddings is flying bridal veils. These “flying veils” are suspended in the air and using a clever system, they float down the aisle and elegantly land on the bride’s head as she walks towards her husband-to-be. This gives the wedding a fairytale touch. If you’ve always dreamed of a fairytale Chinese wedding in an idyllic French château, then this trend will make it even more magical and could be for you.

2. French Chateau Weddings

Many Chinese couples are following many of Hollywood’s royalty by saying their vows in an elegant French Chateau. From business mogul Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West’s wedding rehearsal at the Palace of Versailles to Canadian singer Avril Lavigne’s marriage to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger at Château de la Napoule, or Eva Longoria’s nuptials at Château Vaux le Vicomte, a coveted French castle is becoming an increasingly popular venue for Chinese weddings!

3. Pre wedding photos at famous Landmarks

Hundreds of young Chinese couples choose to have pre-wedding photos outside some of the world’s most famous landmarks, with the groom-to-be wearing a tuxedo and the future bride adorning a stunning white wedding gown. These breathtaking pictures are then printed out and displayed at the wedding ceremony and reception. If you desire beautiful wedding photos of you, and your loved one dressed in gorgeous wedding attire, stood in front of the Eiffel Tower, Blenheim Palace or Château de Chantilly, then this is a trend you should follow.

4. Destination Weddings 

Destination weddings are becoming increasingly popular for Chinese weddings - an exotic backdrop and exclusive wedding venue are high priorities for many young couples. Whether they choose to have a Chinese wedding in London, Florence or Paris, we’re seeing more couples fly their families out to stunning French châteaux, elegant London wedding venues and tropical beach resorts where they say, “I do’ and have the party of a lifetime.

5. More Diamond Wedding Jewellery

The South China Morning Post reported that diamond wedding jewellery is becoming a popular choice in Chinese Weddings, with brides choosing to order bespoke diamond jewellery. They also noticed that made-to-measure unique diamond wedding rings had risen by 75% - as budgets for Chinese weddings have also been on the rise.
