Recently I watched this interview from Axioo TV about choosing the right decorator for your wedding. The host interviewed Johan from Lotus Decor, one of the most sought after wedding decorator in Jakarta, aside from Nefi Decor and Suryanto and many more. It also showed the “typical” wedding decor in Jakarta. When I said typical, it doesn’t mean the decor is ugly, without effort or below average. Instead, the typical wedding decor in Jakarta is over-the-top, lush, beautiful and a huge production setup. To transform a huge ballroom that can sit 1,000 pax into a garden with tall trees, are common. Furnitures, table consoles, cupboards are part of decoration. Drapping the wall with your color theme is not even an option, it is a norm. Sky is the limit when it comes to decorating one hall, because budget might not be a problem for the bride & groom since most of the time both families or parents pay for the event. It is 2 families’ big event after all.
Here are some of the decor by Lotus Design
I’m still at awe every time I attend a wedding in Jakarta. The effort and dedication to every single details is impeccable. Of course, it is subject to personal taste, but I’m judging solely by amount of work and items that was used. It’s so inspiring to see the public high awareness for fine decoration and the creativity of fellow designers. One of my inspiration is works by Sally (Tea Rose Wedding), she’s very talented and have quirky taste for unusual props and very detailed decor. We went to the same high school in Jakarta and started working on this line at approximately the same time. Here are some of her wonderful works:
While the wedding industry in Singapore has yet to embrace beautiful decoration fully, the trend is here to stay as more and more couples aim to personalize and yearn for beautiful wedding of their own. I believe God has a plan for me in Singapore and it’s my calling to share the talent He gave me my love for decor & design.
