Best Bridal Booth at Wedding Fair

Last weekend I designed and decorated a booth at the Wedding Fair for my fellow vendor and good friend, Ivy Su of Ruby Woo Wedding Couture. Ivy’s business is to provide brides with custom made wedding gowns for $1000. Brides can either go online or meet with Ivy in person to design the wedding gown of their dreams. The possibilities are endless and I truly believe Ivy can design any wedding gown for brides.

The booth design had a red and floral theme. 150 red paper roses were handmade. The roses were also adorned with black butterflies throughout. We added lace and crystal draping to make the booth very feminine. The Ruby Woo sign was also custom made for this event. We wanted brides to see the Ruby Woo logo from far away. We opted not to have any tables in the booth because Ivy had models in wedding gowns that day. The booth was a huge success and lots of brides came by and made appointments with Ivy on the spot. In addition to the success, the Ruby Woo booth won “Best Bride Booth” at the Wedding Fair!

Check out some pictures of the booth and Ivy's gorgeous dresses!

Happy Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Years was on January 22, 2012 and this is the year of the Dragon! (I am a couple of days late with sending out my Chinese New Years wishes but since celebrations are for a full week, I am still on time!)

Feng shui experts say couples marrying this year can expect good fortune and luck in their marriage. The extra-lucky months are February, June, and July—but there are lucky dates in every month. If you want to see if your wedding date is lucky or extra-lucky, check it out!

Top 10 Colors for 2012

Determining a wedding color is easy for brides that have always had a favorite color. For brides that don't have a favorite color, love all colors the same, or feels that their favorite color might not work for their wedding, this might be a harder task.

Putting myself in the shoes of the brides that fall into the last category, I proceeded to do some research on the top 10 colors of 2012. I think that brides can pick their fave colors from paint chips or fabric swatches. According to the Pantone Fashion Color Report Spring 2012, these are the top 10 colors:
Provocative Tangerine Tango - an enticing juicy orange.
Solar Power - radiates warmth and cheer.
Fanciful Bellflower - a distinct ornamental purple.
Cabaret - sensual and intense rosy-red.
Sodalite Blue - a classic maritime hue.
Cockatoo - a tactile blue-green.
Margarita - a piquant yellow-green.
Sweet Lilac - a pinkish lilac.
Driftwood - blend of beige and gray.
Starfish - warm summer neutral.

Although these colors are not your usual "wedding colors," this might be the time to make a huge statement at your wedding and really wow your guests! If these colors are too out of the ordinary for you, I hope these colors at least inspired you to see what other possible colors are out there! Stay tuned for more color options and combination suggestions!

Happy 2012!!

2011 was a great year for Wishahmon! A lot of opportunities came up which allowed me to venture into different things and to meet a lot of wonderful and talented people. I had a great time working with my lovely clients to plan their dream weddings. We worked with different themes and tried many different things this year. I truly love all of my clients and love how their weddings turned out.

After a couple of years of being interviewed at FM 947, Ms. Terry Chan suggested that I branch out and design the stage for the New Talent Singing Awards at the Jack Singer Concert Hall. I am truly blessed that she thought of me for this project and encouraged me to branch out. Upon her insistence, I branched out and started Wishahmon – Event Creations. Under this branch, I designed a bridal booth for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation at Bridal Fantasy, helped out Ruby Woo with their fundraiser project for Japan Tsunami Relief and organized the Rays of Hope Fundraiser Concert for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. I think I am truly “hooked” on giving back and doing fundraisers. I hope to continue to work with organizations in their fundraising efforts.

My regular blog readers know (by now) that I don’t make New Years Resolutions. Rather I opt to learn something new or do something differently. For 2012, my “Not New Years Resolution” is to take risks. At the end of each year, I go through all of my files and re-organize everything. This year, I found two folders labeled “2009 ideas” and “2010 ideas.” Both of these folders contained design/business ideas that I had thought of, researched, and talked myself out of it. (All of the really bad ideas never did last in these folders.) I recalled some of the excuses were: There is no way there is a market for that; I don’t know who to contact to start that; I can’t commit the time to that project; (and the all-time winner) My Chinese horoscope says I shouldn’t take risks this year.

Good grief, Charlie Brown! Enough with the excuses, this year I am going to try out some of my new “old” ideas and see where it takes me. Please keep your fingers crossed for me and check in often to see what my progress is! Wish me luck!!
