The good old 'genda' or the marigold flower is significant for reasons more than one. In the wedding scenario, it is one of the top choices for decorations. It is not just because they are vibrant and pocket-friendly. But they also have a traditional value where others fail to compete.

We have these 12 decor ideas which will entirely redefine the beauty of marigold flowers and jazz up your venue like none other:
