Planning an intimate wedding? Make your special day a minimalistic magical affair using these décor tips by Palash Agrawal, Founder / Director, Vedas Exports.
Living through a global pandemic has propelled dramatic shifts in our lifestyle. The people who once enjoyed lavish destination weddings now prefer intimate celebrations at the comfort of their house. But is it practically possible to bring the vibe of a wedding venue into your home? Yes, it is possible with the right home wedding décor setup! From a vibrant haldi arrangement to floral mandap for mehndi to thematic royal gold decor for the big day, there are several ways to transform your little abode into an unforgettable wedding aesthetic.
A Beautiful Backdrop to Frame your Vows
A wedding would look incomplete without a statement eye-catching backdrop – whether it finds its position in the living room, backyard, or balcony. Having a well-adorned backdrop proves to be visually appealing for your wedding photographs. You can opt for a simple silk curtain covered with fairy light and lamps by the side. Or likewise, drop some gorgeous garlands of fresh flowers from the top with pots of indoor plants or tall metallic vases placed at both ends to complete the look. This setup is simple, affordable, and minimalistic, and works well for all wedding ceremonies.
A Ceiling Covered with a Splash of Colors
For those with a penchant for all things vibrant and colorful can turn their ceiling into a display of colors using lanterns, pompoms, and honeycombs. This concept is ideal for couples who want a simple, functional, and clutter-free décor for both day and night-time celebrations. A bright couch of a contrasting shade can add a quirky and fun element to the look. Throw in some cushions of different shapes and sizes and match the colors of covers with ceiling décor items. Hang a few planters on one of the sides for a splash of lush green and to lend a comforting natural vibe to the entire space.
A Mandap of Marigold for a Memorable Phera Ritual
All the brides and grooms-to-be planning a traditional, indoor phera ceremony can amp up the décor using a copious amount of yellow and saffron marigold garlands suspended from the top. A few strings of artificial leaves can create a striking contrast against the vibrant fresh flowers while lending an authentic and chic look to your wedding mandap. A pair of classic golden low seating chairs with a side of metallic candle holders and vases will instantly add a luxurious aura to your space. To enhance the beauty of your mandap décor, spread a vibrant-colored carpet and complete the look.
A Starry Setup for a Night Reception
No wedding is complete without a fun cocktail and reception party. The best part: you don’t necessarily need a lavish club or an open lawn to conclude your wedding celebrations. A reception can even be held at your very own backyard, terrace, or balcony. Lay a couple of rustic benches and high seating chairs by the bar counter. Light up the area with hanging lanterns, tall candles, and table lamps with a backdrop of trees and plants grown in-house. An artificial grass carpet can add up to the beauty of the ambiance and offer a uniform path for the guests to dance and dine with a side of wine. A walkway lit with diyas and dazzling hanging crystals can furthermore create a romantic setting for your reception party.
Not only these but there are many more home wedding décor ideas that can transform your space like no other, leaving guests in complete awe of the celebration. Do up every little corner of your house and create a long-standing impression on your guests. In the midst of all the mayhem, do not forget to enjoy and build memories!
