Edi­tor’s Note

HerWorld Brides LUXE (Singapore) - - Contents - steve thio, con­tribut­ing edi­tor

Styled to look like they cost $40 mil­lion dol­lars, the wedding scenes of Rachel Chu and Nick Young in CrazyRichAsians were big, bold and bor­der­line OTT!

And, al­though there were some el­e­ments that both­ered me – White lanterns??? Bare­foot down an aisle with an­kle-deep wa­ter?! – there’s no deny­ing the vis­ual im­pact of the day and night se­quences that screamed ob­scene wealth.

Movies con­vey larger-than-life im­agery, and in this one, al­most ev­ery scene was loud and brash. How­ever, true lux­ury does not have to be this way. In fact, some of the grand­est wed­dings I’ve been to were as they should be – with a sense of sub­tle and taste­ful op­u­lence, be it in the hun­dreds of stalks of rare blooms flown in just for the oc­ca­sion, the bride’s gowns that ap­peared sim­ple yet were made of the finest fab­rics and had the most ex­quis­ite de­tails, or the gifts of jewellery cus­tomised by a fa­mous jew­eller for ev­ery guest.

This is­sue pro­files some of our read­ers’ most fab­u­lous cel­e­bra­tions that did not cost any­where near $40 mil­lion, but were just as amaz­ing. Also in­side, the new­est cou­ture gowns from lead­ing in­ter­na­tional de­sign­ers, state­ment jewellery that will help you look like a mil­lion-dol­lar bride, the best Sin­ga­pore wedding venues for unique cel­e­bra­tions, and the ul­ti­mate honeymoon re­sorts in Asia.

Be in­spired!
