The Basics: Essential Decorations for Your Indian-Inspired Wedding

Date Published: Oct 11, 2013

That sparkly diamond ring fits your finger perfectly, and that smile on your face explains how you feel about your upcoming wedding. And now that you are already planning your big day, you want to go with a unique and colourful celebration, thus the Indian-inspired theme.

To make things easier for you, here are a few essential decorations that you need to complete your theme:

  • Mandap

This is a four-poled canopy built on the stage of your reception area where you and your groom will sit during the ceremony and celebration. In traditional Indian weddings, this is where rituals are conducted, making it one of the most important details for your nuptials.

  • Flowers

Just like any other event, you should adorn your reception area with flowers in bright colours to give it a more festive ambiance. If you choose to hold your celebration in a garden, opt for a venue that already has flowers in bloom so that you would not need to buy them.

  • Draperies

The Indian theme will never be complete without lavish draperies that will surely make your venue glamorous and extravagant. You can also add candles for that romantic feel and lanterns for subtle lighting.

To complete the look of your area, you can burn incense, which will surely set the mood for a great night of laughter, memories, and of course, love.
