Planning a wedding is an exciting time filled with joy and anticipation, but it can also be quite challenging. After all, you want your special day to be perfect, and that means making sure every aspect of your wedding is just right: from choosing the perfect dress to finding the best venue to staying within your budget. No wonder so many couples find wedding planning stressful!
This is where Feng Shui can help – by incorporating a few simple Feng Shui principles into your wedding, you can create a positive energy flow and promote harmony and auspiciousness on your special day.
In Feng Shui, certain dates are considered more favorable than others based on numerology and the Chinese zodiac. Picking an auspicious date for your wedding will not only make mishaps unlikely to happen during the ceremony but can also make your marriage happier. It’s simply best to play it safe on a special day like this!
To pick the right wedding date, it’s best to consult a Feng Shui expert or refer to a Chinese almanac, Tong Shu.
Want the skinny on the auspicious dates? While your lucky dates will depend on you and your partner’s personal numerology and signs, generally speaking, numbers 2, 6, 8, and 9 are considered lucky in Chinese numerology. Any combination of these numbers, such as 8/9/2023, would also be considered lucky.
While it’s important to pick the right venue – spacious, with plenty of natural light – the entrance to your wedding venue sets the tone for the entire event. After all, you want your guests to feel welcomed and embraced by the positive energy the moment they arrive at the venue, so take a moment to make the entrance as pleasant as possible.
The best way to do this is to ensure the area is well-light and clutter-free so the positive energy can run smoothly. You can also adorn the entrance with beautiful flowers, good luck symbols, and auspicious colors like reds and gold.
According to Feng Shui, the world is divided into five elements: earth, fire, water, wood, and metal. By incorporating these elements into your wedding décor, you can create a harmonious atmosphere and infuse your wedding with peaceful, positive energy.
To incorporate the wood element, consider using wooden furniture or adding wooden décor. Candles are ideal for the element of fire, while potted plants can represent the earth. Metallic accents are possibly the easiest to include, while the water element can be represented by a fountain or any smaller water feature.
In Feng Shui, the love sector or love corner is the southwest part of your house. While finding and strengthening the love corner in your home is essential for creating long-term Feng Shui love luck, you can also find and enhance it at your wedding venue for that extra dose of luck and romance.
Decorate your love sector by displaying auspicious symbols such as a pair of mandarin ducks, the double happiness symbol, or the mystic knot. You can also add fresh flowers, preferably pink and red as they’re considered lucky colors. Keep the corner clutter-free, beautiful, and airy so the chi can flow easily.
Once your (hopefully auspicious!)wedding is over, it’s time to preserve those beautiful memories in a custom wedding photo book. To infuse your photo book with even more auspicious energy, consider adding meaningful symbols to its design.
Choose symbols such as the double happiness character, representing marital bliss and harmony, or the dragon and phoenix, symbolizing the union of masculine and feminine energies. You can also incorporate colors associated with good luck into your wedding album, such as red, gold, or purple.
By adding these or any other auspicious symbols and colors to your wedding album, you’ll not only create a gorgeous keepsake but also bring an extra dose of positive energy to your treasured memories.
