1.Tent Mandap instead of Floral
Tent Mandaps are a unique wedding trend we have witnessed recently. A tent mandap is one using more long drapes for decoration and less flowers. Pastel colors drapes just give a contemporary look to your mandap.
2. A personal touch to your happy day
You can work that up in the food section, giving personalized names to the desserts. Serving your Dadi’s special Gajar ka halwa or Rahul’s favorite ice-cream. This will surely make the close ones feel special and leave the guests to binge on them and talk about them.
3. Photo booths
Especially for the ones who like to be active on social media, quirky photo booths will be a good chunk of entertainment. You can add wedding hashtags or a floral chariot as some props.
4. Select kith and kin to revel with
Breaking off the older trend of serving a thousand guests, couples are now preferring to have a small, selected crowd at their wedding.
People are moving on from old traditions for formality’s sake to more sensible choices.
5. The masquerade Baarat with smoke sticks to add colours
How about giving your baarat a more modern and classy touch.
Many weddings have rocked this super cool idea and it’s taking over the baarat theme these days. 2018 weddings are conscious about contributing towards pollution and stick to party poppers and smoke sticks. Needless to say they give you the best background for your pictures.
From mandap decor to lehenga latkans to dream catchers, tassels have taken over. They are so vibrant and you can find their contribution from your outfits to your wedding decor.
7. Offbeat mehendi ideas
The bride can inscribe her love story or proposal story in her mehendi. Doodling is also a good way to depict your story. But one must keep in mind that the mehendi should be clear and must not look clumpsy.
For example if the bride was proposed at London Bridge or Eiffel Tower, you can have it painted on your hands.
8. A thoughtful return gift
A wedding souvenir is as important as the irreplaceable memories that people take back home with them. A thoughtful gift will always remain something that everyone cherishes.
For this, you can give sugar-free sweets or customized chocolates that are healthier. One can also think of giving a small plant along with the return gift to have an edge over here.
