Pseudo-wedding trips to Paris are a big tourism industry in Asia.  For many years, Japanese wedding tourism has been hot in Hawaii. Wander around Honolulu and you will come upon couples and their stylists and photographers in every scenic spot. Paris, or other romantic European cities, have now joined the wedding tourism boom. The market now includes couples from Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesian, Japan, and Malaysia, according to this recent article in Forbes. While Forbes describes the photo shoots a pre-wedding events, in some cases, couples may have already been through a civil ceremony at home or the wedding could be months off.  Japanese couples who are already married will often have a christian church “blessing” instead of an actual wedding ceremony. According to a 2007 article in The Telegraph:  Hawaii is still the number one overseas wedding destination for Japanese, but Europe is gaining ground, with around 20,000 marriage ceremonies last year.
