About Wedding Feng Shui:

From finding your luckiest wedding day to choosing the perfect flowers, WEDDING FENG SHUI (Harper Paperbacks; Trade Paperback Original; On Sale: December 21, 2010; $16.99) is a unique guide to wedding planning from Chinese horoscope experts Laura Lau and Theodora Lau, authors of the top-selling The Handbook of Chinese Horoscopes.

Laura and Theodora share answers to the most popular wedding questions they have received over the years, and teach readers how to customize a wedding based on the bride and groom’s lunar and solar signs. Accompanied by beautiful Chinese calligraphy, WEDDING FENG SHUI introduces readers to their Chinese moon sign, shows them how to use their sign’s natural strengths during the planning process, and predicts challenges leading up to the big day.

By interweaving traditional and nontraditional elements, WEDDING FENG SHUI helps brides make every aspect of the wedding personalized and special, from choosing the most auspicious day to selecting the right dress and the luckiest colors, flowers, and symbols. Chinese horoscopes for every sign also offer essential insights on how to best manage the many relationships that come together with a marriage—the interaction of the couple, in-laws, bridesmaids, groomsmen, vendors, and guests.

Special features include:

  • A timeline of essential planning dates
  • Key information on how different signs interact, and how to deal if you’re a Dragon with a Tiger maid of honor or an Ox groom
  • Dress shopping tips, color palette suggestions, and planning advice by sign
  • A complete listing of suggested wedding dates for each of the 144 sign combinations
