Into Candid Photography

Couples nowadays spend hours and hours finding a wedding decorator who matches their style and personal aesthetics. No longer is finding a bridal attire or booking a wedding hairstylist the only concern of a bride and groom. They now spend just as much time in finding a decorator who has what it takes to turn dreams into reality. To find the vendors for wedding stage decoration is a tedious task. So, make sure you begin early and visit quite a few people before you finalise the one.

You can stick to a variety of flowers or just use one particular kind. Whatever you choose, remember to let them complement the rest of the elements such as the lights, your wedding mandap, and your bridal lehenga design

2. Wide Frames Balanced with Softer Elements

This season, we’ve seen decorators balance out big wooden frames with softer design elements like flowers and crystals. This is a setup works well for both day and night weddings.

The frames act as great photo backdrops and you can choose to pose with just one big frame or the entire arrangement like this one:

These lights are the perfect backdrop for all your wedding pictures, add an elegant touch to your decor, work well with all kinds of themes and keep the stage in focus throughout the ceremony.

Make sure you stay away from harsh bright lighting and opt for softer hues. You want your guests to feel comfortable. Feel free to experiment a little and ask a professional to pitch in with suggestions. This wedding stage decoration made us skip a beat or two. 

4. A Royal Stage for a Royal Venue

Those hosting a big guest list on their wedding can opt for a royal stage setup that complements the traditional Indian wedding venue perfectly. Stick to the popular shades of red and gold and add grandeur with a classy couple’s chair, some pillars and vases. You can even add more seats to the stage for the benefit of the first family and the guests who’ll come to meet the couple on the stage.

5. Extra Points for the Unconventional

In the last few years, we’ve seen many couples move away from the idea of a traditional wedding stage towards photo backdrops that suit their personalities. And the wedding decorators are supportive too. One great example is this books backdrop created for a couple who met and fell in love thanks to their love for books.

Or, perhaps this one? We love this wedding stage decoration idea. How about you?


If you’re also tilted towards the unconventional, find a decorator who is not against experimenting and who’ll help you create a stage that inspires couples everywhere. This trending stage uses tassels and old-school bulbs but you can create your own version of the same using dreamcatchers, vinyl records, travel figurines and more.
