Indian Wedding Decorations

Indian Wedding Decorations is an elaborate process. An Indian Wedding, in fact, is a grand affair. Indian Wedding Decorations can be sub-divided into pre-wedding decorations, main day functions and post-wedding decorations. Traditional Indian style "asirbad" or blessing ceremony requires lots of flowers, bright red and golden colors. These flowers are used as anchor colors for decorating. Artifacts like bells, wall hanging are the traditional decorative items used for an Indian wedding. For lighting Indian lanterns and candles are used to give an ethnic touch to the décor. Significantly, earthen colors are used for the Indian Wedding Decorations.
All traditional "hindu" weddings take place in "mandaps". It's in the "mandaps" the ceremony of "phereys" take place. These "phereys" are a wedding ritual in which the couples circle round the sacred fire seven times. As a sign of prosperity and happiness, the "mandap" is made of red, yellow and silver colors, often decorated with flowers and herbs. "mandap" is a kind of a four-pole canopy at centre stage.

The sacred fire in the "mandap" indicates not only the elucidation of the mind, knowledge and happiness, but is also a clean and pure witness to the ceremony.

To mesh tradition and modernity, netted drapes, silver color instead of golden with fresh flowers like carnations, baby roses, lilies or orchid are used for decorating the "mandaps". Earthen "kalashs"(pots) and silver "thalis"(plates) can be good decorative pieces around the "mandaps". The "varmala" or garland of both bride and groom can be made of a variety of colors and now mixed and matched with ribbons and netted cloths. The groom's car in the Indian traditional wedding is also decorated.
