When it came time to plan their wedding, Fiona and Ravi knew they wanted family to be the overarching theme. When it came time to translating that into decor and invitations, they used their parents’ favourite flower, white orchids, as a focal point. “They are so classic and elegant, and our parents have many of these in their homes,” Fiona explains. Their two-day celebration involved both Hindu and Western ceremonies with different colour palettes. For their Hindu ceremony, red and gold were the dominant colours. “With this being a culture fusion wedding, since Ravi is Guyanese and I’m Chinese, these colours symbolize good luck and fortune in our colours,” Fiona says.
Family also played a special role in the couple’s wedding invitations.
