Colour trends

If you have a budget constraint but want to create a mystical charm with unique wedding decor, play with colours. For summers and monsoons, create a look with drapes and furnishings in blue, pink, and citrus. For winters, experiment with bright, joyful colours like orange, red, and even a blend of subtle colours for a ravishing appeal.

Wedding area decoration

Create a look by teaming up fresh flowers, candles, and lanterns (all together) for an ethnic look. For a unique appeal, place candles or lanterns in the centre of dining tables. You can also wrap a string of flowers around the pillars. Also add light strings to the pillars (along with the flowers), to enhance the look of the space.

Guest space

Your guests need to feel most special. Decorate guest tables with exquisite pin-up flower bouquets in roses, carnations, or tulips. Guest chairs can be covered in colourful drapes combinations. Move beyond red and white, and try out combinations such as purple and mustard, black and gold, cream and pink, etc.

Car decoration

Cars overloaded with flowers is definitely not in vogue. For your wedding car, ‘keep it simple’ is the mantra. A few strips of fresh flowers or pin up bouquet in the front are good enough.
