Red & Golden Umbrellas

In India, red and golden colours are considered to be auspicious for the newlywed brides. Most often, they wear the bridal lehengas too consist of these colour tones.

Drapes & Canopies

Draperies play a very, very important role in determining the resulting appearance of a wedding theme. Long flowy draperies when done right can give the decorations the essential flair.

This goes true for anything including the table setting, the chair wraps and the walls. Consider silky satins. Or, something sophisticated like white georgette is also a dazzling choice to think about.

Chalkboard Tags

Chalkboard style is happy-go-lucky kind of light-hearted style. If you want something luxurious without going too much delicate, consider different kinds of chalkboard decorations for your wedding.

A great idea is to have little chalkboards in your buffet area displaying the labels and tags for dishes. Another think you can do is to have a large chalkboard stand at the entrance with a message of welcoming the guests.

Sparkling Glass Tealight Candles

Candles and love go hand in hand. However, pondering on the safety side, if you have been worrying about using regular real flame candles, battery operated tealight candles are perfect alternatives.

In fact, these days you’ll find a huge, huge medley of tealight candle types and wedding specials in the stores. To do something eclectic, think of coloured glass sparkle candles in jewel tones. 

Customized Photo Napkin Holder

Of the recent days of pre-wedding photo shoots, you’ll spot many weddings displaying this trend. The thing is, to take one or more of the photographs shot during the pre-wedding sessions, and to display these photographs on the tables.

Instead of plain photographs, you can also use these photographs in the personalization of decoration items like napkin holders,

Rustic Style Cocktail Stand

Want to have a bar or a separate drinks area in your wedding? Consider a rustic style wooden table stand. Place some empty wine or soft drink bottles on the top along with tealight candles and bowls of nuts.

Pops of Colour For Dessert Tables

While you can’t have ample decorations on buffet stalls serving items like chaat or hot snacks, the tables serving desserts can be decorated with some fancy ideas.

Since many desserts like pastries, puddings, cake toppings and muffins contain plenty of colour, it’s a good idea to add soft pastel shades to the table. Add pastel toned flowers, confetti, popsicle toy sticks and garlands to decorate this area.


Giant Letters Marquee Lights

The era of disco lighting isn’t over yet. It’s evergreen actually. So, get some giant letter shaped marquee lights. The letters might read something like ‘LOVE’ or the names of the newlyweds. Display them wide and high surrounded with floral strings, garlands and silk draperies.

Neon Ornaments

Replace the classic yellow and white light strings, and replace them with some flashy neon ornaments, especially for areas like dance floor. Use light-able mirror balls to complement to the rocking feel.


LED Cherry Blossom Tree

Set up your fairytale entrance with a charming cherry blossom tree glimmering with tiny LED or fairy lights. You can also use these trees in smaller sizes as table centrepieces for wooing the guests even more.

Retro Style Bikes

While most grooms arrive in their wedding sitting in a car or on horseback, if you wish to try something different consider a retro style bike instead.

Not too attractive to hear but absolutely perfect for making some of the most beautiful photographic and memorable moments in your wedding.
