Indian Wedding Decors: Surpassing Cliched Standards
Indian weddings are not mere events. They are a culmination of all things wonderful in life. It is also a culmination of great, innovative, and creative ideas. The planning process involves ideas for the food, clothes, venue, photography, guest list, and of course, the wedding decor.
Wedding stage decor has moved from being one of the last on the list to a spot of precedence because it has become an important aspect. Over the years, the trend of wedding decorations in India has evolved. Gone are the age-old ideas of shimmery paper pennants crisscrossing the stage and the venue. Gone are the cliched floral arrangements and scrunched up drapes.
Today, wedding stage decor is a style statement. Even the tiniest aspects have a part to play. It’s all about aestheticism, a blend of harmony and balance. Decors are now more thematic and they even reflect the choices or the career of the couple.
The wedding decor encompasses the entire venue. The wedding stage is the main attention grabber but decor includes everything right from the entrance to even the furniture inside the venue.
Wedding mandap or stage decor has certainly taken up things a notch further. All old ideas have been shown the door. A blend of traditional and conventional concepts are here to stay. Because that is how we Indians like it- a pinch of the old with the new!
Here’s a brief look at what has changed for Indian wedding decor:
- Color-coordinated decorations
- Thematic decorations
- Exotic floral decorations
- Change from conventional venues
- Inputs from the bride and groom
- Eco-friendly ideas
- Choices of lighting
Turning The Spotlight On The Stage
The wedding stage is the main centre of attraction. The latest trend of stage decor is to show creativity in whatever the concept is. The stage can be drenched in opulence or it can be a minimalistic, eco-friendly decor. Either way, the trick is to give the idea a creative twist and make the stage the cynosure of all eyes. So, what’s trending with stage decors?
Flowers, flowers and more flowers
If you are thinking of traditional jasmines and roses, think again. Flowers are being flown in from all over the world just for stage decor. The impressive list includes exotic orchids, tulips, dahlias, freesias, peonies, gerberas, hydrangeas, and an assortment of lilies that have replaced the traditional variety. Couples also opt for color themes to go with their wedding attire.
A semi-spherical stage extensively decked up with cascading flowers of pastel shades is a trending idea. On the stage, flowers are also used to cover entire ceilings, as cascades, chandeliers, backdrops, and to decorate the stage front.
Although this idea has been around for some time, it has always been a popular choice. The backdrop of the entire stage is used for the decor. Set in a vibrant hue of bold colors, the decor can be a choice between flowers or drapes. Bold backdrops make for beautiful photographs as well.
Taking it up a notch further are the dome-shaped stages. They are available as readymade setups or they can be uniquely customized for the wedding. Domes give the entire stage a facelift apart from adding a touch of royalty. To add more oomph, the domes are decorated with exotic roses along with an aesthetic backdrop and sofa.
The classic red and gold
The hues of red and gold are big favorites. These colors blend very well with the traditional wedding attires of the couples as well as the numerous guests. Red and gold decor can never go wrong when they are used aesthetically. They symbolize richness and give the stage a majestic look.
Rich-looking drapes with heavy material or light-weight flowy material can make for a heavenly stage decor. The decor can be amped up with strategic lighting or just simple fairy lights to give an ethereal feel. Adding delicate-looking flowers like carnations of pastel shades will take the entire decor up by several notches.
Out-of-the-box Stage Decorations
For a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, the stage becomes a canvas to unleash creativity and innovation. Some very unique, out-of-the-box ideas have become very popular in recent days. The wedding venue should also be a good choice.
The Chennai Convention Centre is one of the best wedding reception venues in Chennai. Chennai Convention Centre has all the top-class facilities that make it a very popular wedding venue. With 3 separate wedding halls and a lawn area of 7000 square feet, you can choose to have an indoor or outdoor wedding. Our halls are well-suited to complement the wedding stage decor of your choice.
Edgy lighting in geometric patterns gives a totally different feel to the stage. Paired with an equally quirky background of vertical stripes, these LED lights can be put up in any geometric shape.
Using just two colours of white and gold, the shimmering stage effect is quite a favourite for those who are allergic to pollen from flowers. The simplistic white and gold setting uses only white flowy drapes, white handcrafted flowers, golden shimmery strings, and silver and white adornments that hang from a false ceiling. This fairytale-like setting beautifully sets off the vibrant hues of the traditional attire and also matches the whites of wedding gowns.
Bespoke Minimalistic Decor
The minimalistic decor is in vogue. It is also becoming a big favourite even for those who have an unlimited budget. Why is it so popular?
- It is creative and wastage is minimal.
- It can blend contemporary designs with traditional decor.
- There are plenty of eco-friendly choices that are apt for minimalistic decor.
- It occupies less space on the stage.
- It takes lesser time and manpower to install and dismantle it.
- Boho-style stage
Boho-style stages are most suited for outdoor weddings especially if the venue has grassy lawns and beautiful gardens. The idea is to keep both the background of the venue and the stage to work in tandem to give a romantic effect.
The Boho style of decor is quite minimum. All it needs is a drapey, flowy backdrop, combined with decorations of pastel-hued exotic flowers that are kept to a minimum. Foliage garlands, terrariums, pastel shade sofa with soft, plushy cushions thrown in will complete the look.
The mandap or stage is where the wedding finally concludes. This specially allocated place is where the union of two souls and two families take place. All the important rituals take place on the stage. Besides, this is where most of the photographs are taken. The sky’s the limit when it comes to staging decor. The only thing that will determine your choice is the budget and the venue.
