The right kind of lighting can make or break the entire look of the venue! It can act as a central theme for your wedding décor. Something like a simple candle gives a traditional touch and adds an interesting element to your wedding. Lanterns, too, have been a hit at a lot of weddings off late.

Incorporating flowers in your wedding décor has been done since ages and continues to be a hit with couples today. Including flowers at mandaps and floral arrangements as centerpieces continue to be a hit with the audiences. A lot of Indian weddings use bright orange and yellow marigolds, jasmine and roses, making the floral arrangement a standout feature.

Whether it is a small indoor wedding, beach wedding, palace wedding or a lawn wedding, drapes are a major hit at all types of wedding ceremonies. Be it a beautiful drape for decorating the mandap or a colour-coordinated beach wedding, adding drapes just accentuates the whole look of the wedding.

What better way than including rangoli for your wedding day? It’s bright; it’s beautiful and adds the much-needed colour and beauty to your whole wedding. You can create any design that you like that goes well with your theme and colour scheme. To get that extra effect, you can light it up with colourful and luminous diyas or use a tea light to add brightness. It is a cost effective way to wow your guests attending the wedding.

Bicycles and bangles

Quirky, isn’t it? For functions like sangeet, mehendi or haldi, incorporating bangles in the form of chandeliers or a tree of bangles adds a funky element to your function. Including a bicycle or colourful vehicle decked with flowers is also another way of making your wedding function stand out. You and your guests can have your photo sessions centered on the bicycle as a prop. Remember the beautifully-decked rickshaw at Harbhajan Singh’s sangeet?

Ah, umbrellas are a great addition to various pre-wedding functions. Having myriad umbrellas suspended from the ceiling turn a boring wedding into a cool affair. Make sure to add different patterns and colours that match your wedding theme. You can also use umbrellas as parasols if you plan on having a beach wedding.

Colourful paper fans

Using colourful paper fans for a pre-wedding function or post-wedding party is another way of making your guests speechless. Paper fans suspended from the ceiling or just on the walls look beautiful, adding that funky element. But do make sure the colour of these fans blends well with your wedding theme and colour scheme.
