I was very excited when a client requested for this theme. It hits home because I am given a rare opportunity to create something that reflects my culture.
A Peranakan wedding featuring;
~ the bride and groom in traditional costumes,
~ bakul sia ‘auspicious basket’ (a traditional rattan/bamboo and paper mache basket used to keep foodstuff. It is also an important element in Peranakan weddings. Wedding gifts were exchanged and transported in this basket during the engagement and wedding day),
~ kasut manek ‘beaded slippers’,
~ and the Nyonya kebaya (a traditional blouse worn by the women folk of the Peranakan community, usually made of sheer materials such as kasa rubiah ‘Swiss voile’, featuring intricate hand embroidery motifs. A kebaya is fastened with brooches and worn with a sarong, usually batik, held together by a silver belt)
