The wedding entrance is the first look of your wedding decor and holds a rather important role in making sure that your wedding is one of a kind. It is only the first time that you can make a grand impression which can be remembered for life.

2. The Stage

The stage is the “hero” of the whole wedding decor saga. Glamorise the platform using interesting colour schemes and flower arrangements. Make sure to check the size and sturdiness of the stage. This is an important part of a marriage stage decoration so have a word with the wedding venue for various options and possibilities.

You can consider incorporating the stage setup provided by the venue in your marriage stage decoration or create your own personalised one. The stage is the main attraction of the wedding in the decor front and can be beautified in a variety of ways.

3. Bridal seat/couple seat

Another significant aspect in marriage stage decoration is the seating of the bride or couple. Whether you want a single couch, or chair or separate couches discuss your options and choose according to your convenience. Don’t put too many chairs though, to avoid over-crowding the stage.

Couple seats on the stage are also the place where all the conventional wedding photographs are taken. If you are looking for something different and unique, try incorporating creative themes and ideas which can make your marriage stage decoration a class apart.

4. Lighting

“Let there be light”...Because perfect lighting can rise up the whole mood of a marriage stage decoration. A little error in the lights can ruin the entire wedding decoration, wedding photography or the colour of your lovely lehenga! Talk to the experts for ideas on whether you want LED lighting, chandeliers, mirror reflections, earthen lamps or natural sunlight.

If you are hosting your wedding ceremonies in the day time, you can always go for open event spaces with natural lighting, provided the weather is in your favour. It would surely help you cut cost in the area of artificial lighting which you can put use to in other aspects of your wedding decorations. Events are nowadays often hosted in beautiful lawns with inspiring themes and decor.

5. Special Effects
