1. The cutesy umbrella
Now we’ve all seen those Jaipuri umbrellas at weddings, but this dreamy one just takes the cake! We love the strings of fairy lights and the gold sequences that dangle from the umbrella. Be it a garden engagement or an indoor cocktail night, this one element is sure to light up your venue.Punjabi Wedding Song from Hasee Toh Phasee
2. Floral arches
While we are all used to seeing elaborate floral arrangements at weddings, the trend these days is that of pastel shades. And Bollywood sure seems to be ahead of time. We spotted these gorgeous floral arches in two movies and they are as charming as can be.D Se Dance from Humpty Sharma Ki DulhaniaPyaar Ki from Housefull 3Also read: 7 Gorgeous Ways To Use Lights & Fabrics In Your Wedding Decor!
3. Fluorescent frames!
This is one idea we are sure you remember from the Alia Varun starrer! Pop coloured frames hanging at the venue don’t just look pretty, but also serve as fun photo props. Throw in some strings of fairy lights...and there you have it. The perfect setup for a dreamy engagement night.D Se Dance from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
4. The wedding swing
Remember the super gorgeous swing Katrina and Hrithik were romancing on during their wedding sequence in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara? Well, now that’s something you’ve totally got to have at one of your ceremonies. It’s that one simple addition that can add tons of drama to your decor.

6. Sunflower, anyone?!
Another one from the ultra chic wedding setup of Hrithik and Katrina in ZNMD! A gigantic sunflower cutout is the prop for a sundowner mehendi ceremony. It could be the backdrop for the bride’s couch or just serve as a backdrop for photo ops.Sooraj Ki Baahon Mein from Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara
7. Royal elephants
So Duke and Minty’s wedding in 2 States was absolutely epic and if there’s any idea we’re stealing it is that of the gigantic elephants at the entrance! The elephant statues are great to add that royal and traditional look to your venue.Iski Uski from 2 States
8. Bulbs are so fun!
The good ol’ bulbs are back, and how! You can see them being used everywhere as decor elements and weddings are no exception. Suspended from a tree like structure, these are sure to add oodles of charm to your venue.
Bird Cages are quite the “in” thing right now. But we especially love how they were done up in this one song from Hasee Toh Phasee. Pretty yellow flowers lined the base of the cage with fairy lights wrapped all around it. Suspended from the bottom were crystal and flower strings. Looks straight out of a fairytale right?!Punjabi Wedding Song from Hasee Toh Phasee
