A Gorgeous Guest
This is the final look that Rachel chose for the wedding. A pale blue hue, floral details, and layered tulle make for one high-fashion entrance!
Re-Create Rachel's Look
Copy Rachel's stunning wedding guest look with these pale blue picks! While Rachel wasn't technically a bridesmaid, we can't help but think how perfect the look would be for a chic bridal party. Rachel's chiffon gown is Marchesa, but we love these similar dusty blue gowns from Jenny Yoo!
The Ceremony and Dress
The moment we've all been waiting for . . . the bride, Araminta, went with a gilded gold bodice and high-fashion layered skirt for her aisle moment. The aisle was lined with greenery and blooms, and the bride literally walked on water to meet her groom.
Here's a close-up look at the bride.
And here's another peek at the gorgeous bridal look.
Re-Create the Aisle
For a similar wedding ceremony look, bring the outdoors in with lush garden-inspired florals everywhere! Line the aisle with greenery and dramatic flowers to make your guests feel like they've just walked into a secret garden. While the water-filled aisle might not be practical IRL, we love the idea of adding a blue runner to create the same feel!
Re-Create Araminta's Dress
Araminta's gorgeous gown for her wedding ceremony was custom-made for the movie, but go for a similar glamorous look with a dress that has gold detailing. A cap-sleeve gown with tons of gold beading and a defined waist is the perfect way to replicate the look for your own wedding!
The reception takes place in a gorgeous outdoor garden and features modern tables and chairs that are covered in red and gold florals and details.
Re-Create the Reception
To re-create the reception from Crazy Rich Asians, go for a traditional color palette of red and gold. Towers of deep red florals look perfect paired with textured gold linens and glassware.
