Destination Indian weddings are undoubtedly the flavour of the season but a spectacular Indian wedding does not materialise only from a picturesque destination. Truly impressive weddings are created through oodles of personalised elements that serve as a collage expressing the couple’s unique lovable style and quirks.
It’s the smallest details that remind guests of the bride and groom’s endearing qualities whilst being filled with hospitality that will guarantee your wedding day a place in the memories of everyone who graced the occasion.
For couples who are fortunate enough to have exotic locales and jaw dropping natural beauty right in their backyard or for those who prefer the comfort and convenience of home, a wedding sprinkled with nuances reminiscent of both of you promises to have a lasting impact on all your guests. Whether you and your beloved choose to bind yourselves together in holy matrimony at a destination that transports everyone to another world or some place at home which is seeped in fond memories of the past, an Indian wedding theme will provide the perfect canvas on which to paint your wedding story.
The ideal Indian wedding theme is an amalgamation of personal flair, warmth, comfort and boundless laughter. Something that captures your spirit as a couple but is also relatable to your guests and would make for stunning wedding pictures that will last a lifetime. While classic Indian wedding themes like royal weddings, Bollywood weddings and beach weddings are tried and tested to ensure a good time, there are countless other innovative Indian wedding themes waiting to be explored. Take a cue from these contemporary and novel Indian wedding themes and get inspired to create your own special Indian wedding theme featuring one or many of these ideas.
If you dream of a wedding bathed in sunlight against the backdrop of lush green foliage but can’t trust the weather gods not to play spoilsports with your elaborate plans, bring the delicious freshness of summer indoors with a garden decor to brighten up dull banquet halls. Walls covered in green leaves and flowers and large green trees with votive candles hanging from the branches that work as nature inspired chandeliers lend the vibe of a flawlessly tended and trimmed lawn.
Buffet table frames trellised with creepers and exquisite floral centrepieces on the dining tables will let your guests feel like they are attending an indoor picnic in the park. Carry the garden and greenery inspired Indian wedding theme throughout your festivities or for a mehendi or lunch following some smaller religious rituals.
Infuse an outrageously fun and out of the box element to your Indian wedding theme by incorporating a fairy tale circus into your functions. Re-create your favourite childhood stories with this whimsical theme. A yellow brick road at the entrance like the Wizard of Oz, Mad Hatter inspired large floral hats as centrepieces, polka dotted and striped table linens and napkins, quirky and colourful crockery, massive stacked teacups as photo booths and a large circus ring in the middle of it all for the wedding ceremony or sangeet performances.
Temporarily tattoo your friends and family with crazy characters from fairy tales, encourage them to dress in their colourful best and post countless pictures to your wedding website, Facebook page, Snapchat story and Instagram feed for an Indian wedding theme that is unforgettable for everyone who attended.
Period movies and television shows can be credited for making all things vintage unbelievably cool again. Vintage glamour has never been more time appropriate for an Indian wedding theme with a number of couples who want the dreaminess and romanticism of the past combined with innate energy and festive spirit of an Indian wedding. Step away from the gaudy reds, greens and yellows and go for an all-pastel decor with accents of gold that pop.
White lace tablecloths, crystal candlestick centrepieces, old photos in antique mirror frames suspended from the ceiling or mounted on the walls or trees, peonies and hydrangeas for floral pieces and delicate porcelain cutlery can all come together for an elegant wedding reception or mehendi or even a pre-wedding brunch. Complete the Indian wedding theme by including some old photographs of your parents and grandparents for a touch of nostalgia and allow your guests to write you inspirational messages to be opened on your first and fifth anniversaries as continuous reminders of the special day.
