Your wedding day is one of the most significant events in your life, and it's a day filled with cherished traditions that have been passed down through generations. But what if you also want to infuse your and your partner’s own unique styles or aesthetic sensibilities into this timeless celebration? 

More and more couples are choosing to incorporate aspects of their personal style and tastes into their wedding ceremonies, finding ways to merge age-old customs with who they are in the present. Honing this unified aesthetic is not only more possible than ever but can result in a wedding that's truly one-of-a-kind. Here are some creative ways to strike that perfect balance and make your big day a reflection of your love story.

1. Reimagine Traditional Outfits in New Textures

One of the easiest ways to incorporate your personal style into your wedding is by reimagining traditional wedding outfits and clothes. Take, for example, classic Chinese wedding attire, be it a cheongsam or kwa. While traditional palettes of red and gold are breathtakingly beautiful, consider exploring different textures and fabrics as an alternative.

Intricate lace, modern embroidery, or strategic mesh panels can help you express your personal style while paying homage to tradition. Traditional patterns such as dragon and phoenix embroidery could be stitched in vibrant jewel tones instead of the usual gold, adding new dimensions to your outfit. Complete the look with pieces like the LVC 9IN Double Bliss 999 Gold Drop Earrings, which put an elegant yet fun spin on the classic double happiness or “囍” blessing. On the groom’s side, he could explore unique fabric blends for a classic suit or incorporate the same custom embroidered designs on his own ma kua.

2. Change Up Your Silhouette Through New Jewelleries nd Designs

Sometimes, it's the little details that can make a big impact. If you're looking to maintain a traditional wedding attire but want to add a personal touch, focus on jewelleries and design elements to make it uniquely yours. Brides can choose statement jewelleries accessories that reflect their style, like a bold headpiece, unique veil, or jewellery like the LVC 9IN Ballentine 999 Gold Bangle. Grooms can explore different tie styles, cufflinks, or even custom-made shoes to make their attire stand out.

3. Include Personalised Touches in Your Wedding Favours or Decor

Wedding favours and decor offer an excellent opportunity to infuse your personal style into your wedding. Consider personalised favours that tell your unique love story, such as custom-made candles with your favourite scents or small keepsakes reflecting your favourite hobbies. When it comes to decor, choose colours, patterns, and themes that resonate with both of you. It could be a vintage-inspired reception or a contemporary, minimalist ceremony setup. These little touches will make your wedding feel genuinely yours. As an added bonus, you could exchange matching couples’ jewellery as special gold engagement gifts just between the two of you.

4. Explore Contemporary Takes on Must-Haves like Bridal Jewellery

Gold jewellery is a common wedding tradition across many ethnic groups in Singapore, so why not take this opportunity to modernise your bridal trousseau? Pieces like the LVC 9IN Elin 999 Gold Bangle are bold and eye-catching, sure to stand out even amongst rich brocades and flowing silks. Dangling earrings like the LVC 9IN Ellipse 999 Gold Drop Earrings also add movement to your outfit, echoing the joy of such a festive occasion.

5. Emphasise Wearability or Reusability for After the Wedding

As you plan your wedding attire and accessories, think about their wearability or reusability. Choosing pieces that you can wear or repurpose after the wedding allows you to enjoy your investment beyond the big day. For example, consider selecting jewellery that complements your style and can be worn on other occasions. This way, you'll carry the memories of your wedding with you wherever you go.

Even traditional wedding jewellery sets like Si Dian Jin (四点金) now come in a variety of contemporary designs, allowing you to find pieces that better align with your personal style.
