Channamasala's colorful, multicultural wedding teaser #Wedding Porn#fans#mismatched-bridesmaids#multicultural#red dress#tea February 1 2011 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin If you've stuck around Offbeat Bride for a while, you probably recognize Jenna, aka. Tribe member Channamasala. She's written two guest posts, been featured in a Monday Montage and we showed you her wedding tiramasu. Now we're here to give you a little sneak peak into her upcoming bride profile… Photos by Keira Lemonis Jenna and Brendon live in Taiwan and got married in Poughkeepsie, so their wedding was a fabulous multi-cultural extravaganza! Of course, we already know that her dress is amazing. It was designed by Jenna and made by a tailor in Taiwan using Thai, Chinese and Japanese fabrics, including a vintage obi, and combining Western-Japanese influences. Jenna explains, "We threw in lots of things that reflected us, without worrying about how they all fit together." But fit together they totally did! Check it out… Jenna also had some freaking fantastic wedding hair going on. The fan in her hair was hand-carved and she made that fabulous necklace to go with her Japanese-inspired dress. The bride and the fabulous non-matching bridesmaids carried fans instead of bouquets. Jenna's fan was made by an artisan in Taiwan with bamboo handpainted on one side and her name in Chinese (Bai Lian or "white lotus") on the other. For their table numbers, they used vintage postcards from India and Taiwan, colored glass candleholders, and LED tealights. And each table was named for a tea that they like. They even had a tea bar.

Jenna explains, "We felt this was an offbeat, give-back-to-the-community way to spend our money." Want more info?
