Truth be told, I’m still reeling with excitement over my partnership with The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong. I’ve loved The Ritz Carlton brand for years, but I’m also a big fan of Hong Kong. Just a couple of months ago I designed pop star Coco Lee’s Hong Kong wedding, and it was such a blast. Now that my CEO, Xoua Vang, has organized this partnership with The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong, I have the opportunity to design more weddings in Hong Kong, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
What’s unique about this partnership, though, is that I get to design with a fantastic budget: The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong and I will be producing million-dollar weddings. Wedding and event industry folks know that half the battle of every job is trying to secure a great budget. Last week I wrote about everything we’re offering couples with this generous budget.

While this is an amazing budget, and I couldn’t be happier, I also know that because of logistics and location, I still need to be very conscious about how I spend every penny. I have to make sure that every couple feels as though they are getting a luxurious, million-dollar wedding. It can’t just cost a million dollars; it has to feel like a million dollars, too.
Dear Readers, if you had a million dollars to spend on a wedding for 300 guests, where would you spend most of your budget? (I know what all the florists are going to say!)
Oh, yeah, and I did I mention that The Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong is the tallest hotel in the world?!
