This Asian-inspired trend is both an interior decorator, and now, bride’s dream for 2013! The ironically French word “Chinoiserie,” (Shin-wa-sor-ee) literally means “Chinese-esque,” and incorporates Asian motifs in unique shapes, prints, patterns and even furniture. Commonly identified by the blue ceramic glazed pottery, and the gorgeous bamboo chairs, this eye-catching trend can be incorporated into your wedding day in so many ways!
From florals to fashion, the Chinoiserie inspired wedding trend is a style suitable for both bold and subtle brides alike:
For the bold bride, a whimsical and unique gown with the classic painted Chinoiserie blue print would be a sure statement piece!
For something a bit more subtle, skip the Chinoiserie inspired dress, and style your wedding with Asian-inspired flowers and table settings.
We love this koi fish candelabra from Anthropologie. It would make for an eye catching piece at your wedding and could be used in your home post-wedding!
And how about these adorable coin purses? Could serve as a unique way to display escort cards (insert a card into the purse and snap shut so that the card pokes out). They can even double as a party favor.
