Vietnamese People ... - October 5, 2008, 12:17 PM

Need help.

I'm finishing up a wedding video for a Vietnamese couple (not anybody on the board) and I'm looking for something as a nice cultural "parting shot" in the video.

Is there a traditional "good luck" type symbol of anykind that I could use as say the last frame of the video that would be appropriate?

... or anything else you could think of?

Not critical ... I can always use a shot of flowers ... but I was trying to come up with something neat.

Thks,

I think they're big into dragons, like Chinese-style dragons. I know a Vietnamese chick who is in London at the moment. I'll shoot her an email and let you know as soon as I hear.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

Thks. I found a symbol called "double happiness" here (It's the heart):

But, I'm wary to use it w/o really knowing what it means ... and it seems Chinese rather than Vietnamese. Not sure.

other vietnamese might argue with me but to answer your question, there's really no "good luck" symbol especially for weddings. our so-called "good luck" charms are jade (jewelry), but that's given as a gift. the dragons or tigers are usually placed in front of the resident are used as "watch dog" against evil spirits. most of the traditional vietnamese weddings mimick the chinese.

btw - the pictures made me hungry as hell. they're traditional dishes but nothing is really the "good luck" send-offs. if you've never had a vietnamese egg roll (spring roll), you won't be disappointed and also a roast pig.

hope this helps.

Thks!

Yeah, I luv Chai-goa (sp?) ... good stuff.

I found a shot of a baby at the wedding waving "bye-bye" ... I might use that.
