Wedding decoration is no longer just about putting a few good elements and floral arrangements together. It’s about finding a theme and putting together everything at your venue to go with that theme. From the centerpieces, the choice of flowers to even the lighting… everything needs to be in sync. We’ve got you 7 of the most popular wedding decoration themes to inspire your shaadi decor. And if you’ve ever wondered what exactly a particular theme means… here’s the answer!

1. Let’s go VINTAGE

This wedding decoration is all about elements of unfinished or white wood, dreamy birdcages with gorgeous florals, a touch of glam with pretty pearls and an array of mirrors and frames. This kind of wedding decoration is perfect for an outdoor, morning wedding or that relaxed engagement party.

2. Back to the MUGHALS

If it’s traditional that you’re aiming for, a royal Mughal wedding decoration setup is a great option. Best suited for the sangeet or the wedding, it’s an ideal winter theme. Long velvet drapes, deep and dark colours, red roses, chandeliers and the use of jaalis for the walkway is what adds to the allure of this wedding decoration idea.

5. The RUSTIC charm

A major trend this shaadi season, rustic wedding decor is all about being earthy. A rustic wedding decoration theme involves the use of greens and twigs, beer barrels and everything raw… in its natural beauty. And if you’re a lucky girl having a destination wedding by the beach or a national park, this theme will definitely go well.
