When the Olympics started 10 days ago, couples around the world rushed to get married and have children on 08/08/08. Why? The number eight is considered lucky by the Chinese (which is why the Opening Ceremony started at 8:08 p.m. on 08/08/08).
While you might not have timed your wedding for 08/08/08, watching the Summer Games may have you inspired by the culture and food of China and thinking about an Asian-themed wedding. Choose red, yellow and black for your colors — the colors of celebration — and stay away from white (it’s a funeral color in China). Serve Chinese food, and give your favors away in take-out boxes.
