Wedding decoration(pelamin)dais and sprinkle

Malay decoration:

Simplistic elegance is the word that describes weddings today. Classic gowns, opulent fabrics, sophisticated floral designs and an intimate wedding environment are keys to creating that elegant moment.

And the best weddings are the ones that evoke the most emotion from you and your guests, reflecting your individual lifestyle and personalities.

wedding dais is usually grandly designed and gaily decorated, to create some symbolism of a king and queen sitting in state. As you know, Malays call the bride and groom or the wedded couple as “Raja Sehari” or “Royals for the day”. They are therefore treated as such on their wedding day. And royal colors like yellow and tints of yellow are appropriately used during weddings to bring out the ambiance.

The structure for the pelamin is mostly made of wood (planks) and covered with carpets or colored cloth and other decorations. The cost for the construction will depend on the elaborateness of the decorations and the variety of items used.

Skilled decorators are sought to create a wonderful theme for the wedding. To achieve the desired effect, the pelamin is usually made at least three to five days beforehand. This is to be in time for other decorations to be made in the hall or house compound to create a wonderful wedding atmosphere.

Of course, nowadays, especially in the towns, there are ready-made and packaged pelamin designs with the accompaniments like seats, cushions, etc., that can be assembled and fixed up quickly.

Fragrant and beautiful flowers and floral arrangements always add to the liveliness and beauty of a place. And you can be sure that floral arrangements are part of the decorations for a pelamin.

And usually, you will also find a pot or vase of “bunga telur” also on both sides at the front of the dais.

The Chinese character for “double happiness” is imperative at a wedding. It is the character for happy that has been doubled, placed side by side and joined together. The character is usually drawn on—or cut from—a piece of red paper and is placed where the young couple can gaze at it during the wedding. It is common for the double happiness sign to be seen multiple times in every room of the newlyweds’ house to bring them good fortune during their marriage.

The Color Red

  1. The color red is used everywhere during weddings. It is the color of the banners, the lanterns, the double happiness signs, and the bride’s wedding dress. In more traditional Chinese weddings, red candles are burned and the bride wears a red scarf on her head. Red symbolizes happiness and good luck in Chinese culture, since it is associated with the sun, life and fire. The Han Chinese also believe that red will ward off evil spirits.

Wedding Banners

It is a yin-and-yang metaphor, with the dragon referring to the groom or male half, and the phoenix referring to the bride or female half. Together they represent the unity of two halves to make a complete whole and symbolize happiness in the couple’s new life together.

Bridal shoes:

Find the Perfect Wedding Shoes during your ceremony??

Finding the perfect pair of wedding shoes doesn’t have to be stressful, but there are a few things to keep in mind before you buy:

1) Choose comfortable bridal shoes. Sure, those four-inch white heels may be a perfect match for your dress style, and look fantastic on your feet in the store, but standing in them for hours on your wedding day is another story. You want to be focused on having fun with your new spouse, friends and family, not on keeping your balance as you teeter down the aisle or sit with aching feet. There are plenty of cute bridal shoes that take comfort into consideration as well as style: choose a white satin ballet flat, or a low slingback sandal.

2) Take wedding shoe fabrics into consideration. There are numerous types of shoe fabrics out there, such as satin, silk, velvet and lace. Not only are wedding shoes a reflection of your personal taste, but they must also be compatible with your wedding venue. Silk wedding shoes can easily stain in grass or on wet ground, and leather pumps are unique but will be far too hot for a summer wedding.

3) Remember your dress. Don’t fall in love with a particular pair of wedding shoes before you buy your bridal gown. Your dress fabric and any embellishments such as beads or pearls need to be considered while shopping for shoes. There are hundreds of styles of wedding shoes available to fit any type of season, bridal gown, and most importantly, the bride’s unique personality. By keeping all of these factors in mind while shopping, you’ll find the right pair of wedding shoes for your special day.
