Creative Ways to Use Double Happiness in Chinese and Vietnamese Weddings

Double Happiness, the joyful traditional symbol of unity and love, can add a touch of tradition and beauty to any Chinese or Vietnamese wedding. As wedding planners specializing in Chinese-American or Vietnamese-American weddings, we've discovered many creative ways to incorporate this traditional symbol in a not so traditional way. Here are four of our favorite ideas to help you infuse Double Happiness into your fusion wedding.

1. Tea Ceremony

One creative way to incorporate Double Happiness into this important event is through embroidered knee pads. These pads not only provide comfort but also add a traditional touch with their intricate designs. Additionally, using tea cups adorned with the Double Happiness symbol can elevate the ceremony, blending tradition with modern elegance in your modern Chinese Vietnamese wedding.

2. Stationery

Incorporating the Double Happiness symbol into your invitations, welcome signs, and thank-you cards is a fantastic way to infuse tradition right from the start. This symbol on your stationery not only adds a personalized touch but also ties together the theme of happiness and unity, making it perfect for Asian Western fusion weddings. 

3. Desserts

Another simple yet delightful way to incorporate this symbol is on desserts. Whether it is a cake topper featuring the Double Happiness symbol or iced cookies designed with it, these sweet treats are sure to be a delicious delight for your guests. These small touches not only add visual appeal to your dessert table but also celebrate the joyous occasion in a unique and memorable way. It’s a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary elements, ideal for a modern Chinese Vietnamese wedding.

4. Decor

Double Happiness can be used to fill spaces that feel a little empty, adding charm and elegance to your wedding decor. For example, a blank wall can be transformed with a stunning Double Happiness backdrop, making it a perfect photo opportunity for your guests. Similarly, plain centerpieces can be elevated with charming Double Happiness decorations.

These creative additions not only honor tradition but also add a layer of modern elegance to the wedding.
