Day weddings have their own special place in your wedding planning. While traditionally the ideal lagan period was after sunset, the millennial weddings have gone out of the way to be celebrated during the day. Day weddings have gone beyond some cultures like the South Indian weddings that happen early in the morning and alfresco weddings are nothing short of a fairytale. 

There is however more than one reason to host a day wedding. Keeping aside the aesthetics, the year 2020 has seen a lot of wedding postponements owing to the pandemic. The uncertainty that has wrapped the world during the lockdown has changed the plans of many couples and they have postponed their big day to the latter half of the year or next year altogether. 

While so many weddings get postponed, couples have to keep in mind that there will be a scarcity of dates and other venue and vendor availabilities in the latter half of 2020 and next year. This contributes largely to the rising demand for day weddings. With the change in demand, there is always a change in the trends. 

Welcoming the idea of day weddings with open arms might not be a cakewalk always. Families need to work their plans around this new normal and to make it all the more fun and beautiful, here are some day wedding inspirations that are sure to make you want one! Don't forget to bookmark your favourites.

Bridal Entry For Day Weddings

Every time the song Din Shagna Da played, we are sure at least half of the brides-to-be would have imagined themselves walking down the aisle. Bridal entry is one of the most fascinating parts of the wedding. With all the heads turned to look at the woman of the hour walk down the aisle looking as breathtaking as ever is a moment that every bride would want to freeze. Day weddings are a hoot because you can experiment with your bridal entries. Even if it is the traditional walk under the Phoolon ki Chadar, there is so much you can add. Because the bright daylight is always on your side, even the most subtle entries without a party walking along the bride will also look mesmerising!

Day Wedding Decor

While weddings that happen in the evenings are more about dark colours and heavy drapes paired with a lot of lights to make it regal, day weddings can be both - regal as well as minimal. The daylight adds that extra beauty to your venue's decorations and in fact allows you to take a look at the details. While the lights at night might make you miss a dirty footstep on your carpet, the day weddings are your space to work on the minute details. Day weddings allow you to try your hand at origami or paper decorations, umbrella decorations, DIY bangle decors and even rustic theme decors. Your centrepieces can shift from red roses to pink ones or lilies too. You must also give a thought to foliage decor for day weddings! 

Since day weddings mostly focus on the minimal decor in brighter colours of the pastel shade card, here are some decor ideas for day wedding inspiration!

Wedding decoration plays a very important part to make your wedding an unforgettable one. The first glance at your venue exudes the vibe and aesthetic that you create and comes even before the hospitality and everything else. A significant role in the wedding decoration is played by seating arrangements. While the range of options to pick from is huge, you will realise that floor seating or your experiments with a boho seating decor for your big day or any of your ceremonies is not that easy when it is a night wedding. Day weddings require less or no lights and that makes it easier to spread out the seating arrangements and experiment with your ideas.

From sitting on floor cushions to rustic cane chairs or aesthetic colourful sofas with quirky cushions, here are some of the latest wedding seating decor for your day wedding inspo!
