Up your game with Umbrellas
For that perfection under the roof, the humble, vulnerable and the protective umbrellas are the way to go. Yes, the protective props can do a lot more than just what we think. Paint small ‘somethings’ on it, tie a few tassels to its edges, paste Rajasthani decoratives or just cover it completely with a decorated fabric; an umbrella is truly a rage in today’s modernized and stylized weddings. Adorned umbrellas just steal the show at your wedding, mehndi, sangeet, haldi or the D-day just beautifully and marvellously. From adding swank to your ceremonies or giving it an ethnic and traditional essence, the decorated umbrellas can just add an unusual touch to just any event.

Bring It On With Bangles
Get artistic and just opt for clunky round bangles that not only give a glam look to your weddings but also speak a lot about Indian tradition and culture. These circular variants are seen as conventional and quirky elements to blend into your big fat day themes. Moreover, bangles are quirky, crafty and just ‘wow’ to give a picture-perfect wedding decor. The round and thin props are giving expensive and luxe flowers, lights and larger-than-life decors a run for their money. Hang it to the ceilings, make a wall of bangles, use it as overhead danglers or place them at seating arrangements; bangles are the stuff that can make all your pre-wedding events and special moments exciting and interesting. What’s more? Tie it to the trees or your photo-booths to inject an edgy, colourful yet desi feel.
