I am Japanese Okinawan and Caucasian. My FI is Japanese Chinese.
I wanted to incorporate some Japanese and Chinese "things" into the overall theme of our wedding and I think it can be done since many of them overlap, but I also don't want to go full blown Asian.
I really want to stay away from cherry blossoms because a friend of mine used it as her theme (with a pink, magenta, and brown color scheme) in her recent wedding. So I need something else.
I was thinking maybe crimson and gold? They seem to go with both Japanese and Chinese.
I was thinking maybe "lucky" bamboo centerpieces but I don't know if it will not look nice because its a totally different color or if it's not big enough for the table (round banquet table for 10).
Any other great ideas?
