As sad as we are to see the summer go, our event wedding planning and design team is getting super excited as we prepare for the upcoming fall wedding season. This November we are taking on a traditional Indian wedding full of elaborate traditions and gorgeous celebration! We absolutely love all of the detail that is often used in the design elements of these weddings and can’t wait to bring our visions to life.
One of our favorites ceremony details is the Mandap. The Mandap is an altar that is used during the wedding ceremony. Mandaps are traditionally built the day of the wedding and is the place where the bride and groom stand. Many Mandaps are embellished with fabrics, lights, crystals, flowers, and unique objects.
We often see Henna on brides and bridesmaids that are celebrating an Indian Wedding. Henna that is painted on a brides hands and feet is call the Mehndi. This tradition was originally meant to keep the bride and her body cool. It has evolved since and we love seeing the beautiful details and designs that henna artists create.
