Nothing is more popping and prominent in your wedding pictures like the decor of your wedding. However, the most crucial aspect of your wedding is getting the mandap decorations right because that is where the bride and groom will be. All marriage ceremonies have the mandap as the backdrop.

Mandap decoration with a floral extravaganza
Decorating your mandap with lots of vibrant and beautiful flowers is always a good idea. If you are having an indoor wedding, you can set up a dome with overhead floral danglers or floral chandeliers. You can also have suspended flower ornaments from the ceiling of the dome. The pillars can be wrapped with gorgeous flowers. Red roses adorning a mandap is a classic decoration, but if you want something unique, you can choose lilac flowers or a white and yellow theme.
If you are conscious of your environment, you can settle for minimal floral decoration or make use of flowers that are locally available in abundance. Also, the structure of your mandap can be made with bamboo. You can also use banana leaves.
Drapes canopy for an outdoor wedding
If you are having an outdoor wedding, your mandap can be colourful draped canopy-like structures. You can even get a gazebo. Make use of colourful pieces of cloth to drape the entire structure so that it looks bright and stunning. You can add a bit of floral arrangements to give the mandap an aesthetic, elegant appeal.
Mandap with a floral dome
Mandap with a floral dome can be set up outdoors or indoors. However, it looks the best in an outdoor wedding as the dome represents the ceiling and against the backdrop of the blue sky and lush green, it would be a total standout. So, the mandap can have a dome made out of colourful flowers and also it can feature drape ceiling with a beautiful chandelier. The colour theme can be chosen as per the colour of your outfits. The mandap can be set up at an elevated ground so that you are the focus.

You can use colourful drapes to create a false ceiling and from the ceiling, you can hang floral danglers and create a canopy using vibrant, fresh flowers. The mandap will appear stunning and you can be sure of all eyes just being on you and your bride/groom.
