Wedding Decorations

Did someone say decor? Yes, you heard it right. The decor is the most important element of the wedding venue, as it sets the mood and theme of the wedding. From floral installations to lighting, from stage setup to the mandap decor, everything sets the right tone for your wedding.

Wedding Décor Trends that will stand out this Season!

2021 hasn't been the kindest year to the wedding sector, but as it moves forward things sure are going to be - not necessarily bigger, but better in terms of making most of the resources at hand, lesser waste, and opting for more intimate weddings where those who matter to the couple and the families the most! So let's kick off this year by asking the decorators to tell us which decor trend they think will be big, and here is what some of the leading ones predict!

Ombré décor is here to win:

Looking for a trendy decor this upcoming season? Ombré is it - be it in floral, fabrics, drapes or linen, the shades of the same tone and not multiple colours mixed and matched together is the look that will be big next season!

Big things come in small packages:

Here are some elements that will make your wedding decor look unique amid clichés - Cane, bamboo, and wicker baskets are going to be a huge trend this season. Make them look special by treating them with greens or sprucing them up with pompoms or just by hanging a filament bulb in them. Coloured translucent acrylic sheets & big foam/ paper flowers will also come in as a trend in decor, adding a pop of colour and glam in a usual flower/ green ceiling!

Click the fancy night away:

A photo booth is one such trend that will make all your guests stop and stare (literally). As you get extremely creative with a photo booth, it makes all the wedding hashtags make immediate sense for many reasons:

1. Guests love to get clicked in a fancy setting and take back a memory of a lifetime
2. It serves as a great engagement opportunity
3. It is a photo op - that doubles up as decor.

Personalization of weddings will always be special as they make your big day extra special. The use of lots of lights - fairy lights, bulb lights, chandeliers is making huge statements these days!

Huge ceiling statements - it could be floral, could be lights could be a mix of both. So, to summarise- maximum volume with minimalistic elements!

Tropical is the new hot topic:

Go Tropical! This is decor trend that should catch on in 2021 is the movement towards Tropical, more fun, and vibrant colours. We have been stuck in the pastel haze for some time now, and we need to add colours and vibrancy to our wedding decor. Mixing colourful flowers in all their hues (tastefully), and adding vibrant table spreads or printed linen. Using a lot of the bigger leaves rather than foliage to give the colourful floral a bright backdrop!
