On your wedding day, all the eyes are always set on the stage and that's what makes your stage the best place to show your creativity.  It's the place where all your candids will be clicked along with those posed pictures with both the sides of the families. So, the stage decoration is very important in your wedding design.

You can go either keep it simple with flowers, opt for fabric bolts and dupattas or create composite wedding design inspirations.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Location for the stage
  • Overall wedding theme
  • Looks for your wedding album
  • Overall wedding venue setup

6. Add some drama to the Mandap


Usually, mandaps in Indian weddings are outdoors (because 'Taaron ki Chaaon Mein') and is the most important element of your wedding design. Having the right kind of flowers, the lightning and gorgeous drapes is what will make your wedding mandap stand out. Depending upon the banquet hall for this is not advisable. Or if you're seeking them ask them for reference images and select your perfect setup accordingly.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Location for the mandap
  • Time of day for the wedding ceremony
  • Overall wedding theme

8. Head's up!

When thinking of splendid wedding design elements that everyone would recall from your wedding, don't forget to include some overhead inspiration. While wisteria vines have become an idea that's run its course - be it in real flower hangings, their silk thread or silk fabric versions or even basic plastic interpretations.

However, what's new is the concept of combining these with other eye-catching elements. These include the glass bowls here, Kalire and terracotta bells, charms and nearly everything else you can think of. Combine these ideas in contrast or with similar colour palettes. You can also think of combining these ceiling delights with ground-based spotlights, colourful ribbons and fabrics or even fairy lights.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Location of your event
  • Design element in sync with the overall theme
  • Light-weight handing decoration items 
  • Strong ceiling or decor structure

Indian weddings are a grand affair with multiple events taking place in the course of days. Each of these wonderful ceremonies provides you with a new opportunity to create a unique experience not only for yourself but for each of your wedding guests who travel to be a part of your big day celebrations.
