6 Ways to Feng Shui Your Wedding & New Home
Apply the ancient art of energy balancing by consulting a Southern Hemisphere Feng Shui expert. Here are a few ideas to consider.
- The Venue
Lighting is key. Find a venue with an abundance of side lighting and avoid harsh overhead lighting. If you already have your heart set on a venue with low light, add lots of candles and use mirrors to expand and light up the space.
Brides should wear a gown that isn’t diamond white. Opt for a slightly off-white shade such as beige or ivory. The same rule applies to guys. The bridal party should wear a combination of heavy and light fabrics to add balance and good energy.
3. The Colour Scheme
- Red: Accenting your wedding day with red creates a strong atmosphere of love and romance.
- Pink: Evokes a sense of fun playfulness and light-heartedness.
- Purple and violet: Give off a very sexy, passionate vibe.
- Black and white: Together represent a strong, balanced relationship – as in the yin and the yang.
- Blues and greens: Great for long term relationships and 2nd weddings – blues and greens promote a calm feeling.
- Yellow: This bright, sunny colour is the hue of cheerfulness and great to add to a low lit venue.
- Orange: Gives off a sense of warmth – promoting conversation and a comfortable atmosphere.
- Leaving the ceremony
- Swop the white limo for a black one as the color black captures the stable foundation that every marriage should begin with.
- Water is the perfect element to have at your send off. Fill your surroundings with buoyant bubbles as for the guests to blow you leave the ceremony.
- Roses symbolize love.
- Grains are a strong symbol of fertility and wish for having children.
- Something Borrowed, Something Blue
If you borrow something, borrow something blue (the colour of peace and serenity) from someone with a happy marriage and a happy family. By combining the age-old traditions of “something borrowed” with “something blue”, you’ll promote wedding day Feng Shui.
