Respecting the elders of their family, this sweet couple decided to highlight Chinese elements for their invitation card. The wedding details were also purposively made in two separated cards—one in English, and the other in Mandarin—in respect to their root culture. After discussing about the design concept, then it came for us to do the job. Enliven something traditional with modern style does has its own challenge. You have to think creatively, how to adjust a design with the new from while still respecting the traditional value that sits behind it. So, at this kind of time, research is very important. There were several ornaments we used to highlight the Chinese culture: the color red, cheongsam, phoenix and dragon, and double happiness Chinese character. We adapted the upper shape of cheongsam as the envelope to wrap the card and of course the main color used was red since it represents happiness in Chinese. Why phoenix and dragon? Well in Chinese tradition, both creatures are the most powerful celestial animals that made a perfect couple. Combined together, they will complement each other, creating yin-yang balance that leads to blissful relation between husband and wife. Then, last but not least, we also added the “double happiness” Chinese character that symbolizes one of the happiest moment of Andre and Jesslyn’s life. Happy wedding.
