Feb 9th 2015 at 4:29 AM

Choosing the best wedding planners in India often takes care of most of what is needed to make a wedding special. However, if you choose to take on the arrangement in your own hands, you’ll understand that it’s the small aspects of Indian wedding decorations such as the choice of flowers, the seating arrangement on the mandap, the design of the toran, the welcome gifts for the barati, etc. that make a huge difference in making the event a success. In fact, these small aspects, when presented in a unique way, makes it something to remember in the years to come.

Indian weddings are an elaborate affair. There are hundreds of things that need to be taken into consideration to make the event a success. Extensive planning and monitoring is required from months in advance to ensure the wedding is conducted in a successful manner. While the larger aspects of the wedding like the theme, the choice of colors in the theme, the food, the gifts, the bridal dress and jewelry, etc. are given a lot of attention, considering details of some of the smaller but important aspects of a wedding can be a major turn around for the event.

4 Important aspects of Indian weddings can be detailed further

The Kalash

Considered as a manifestation of the water God, Varun Dev, the Kalash forms a very important part of an Indian wedding. The Indian marriage is not commenced without the Kalash pujan where the deity is asked to shower their blessings on the bride and groom.

The Jaimala

Although the jaimala was made of winding round a white cotton thread 24 times to initially, signifying the different characteristics of humans and binding the bride and the bridegroom together, the modern day jaimala are made from flowers mostly. A little attention to the details in the jaimala can bring about detailing in the overall wedding, having said the jaimala ceremony is very important in Indian weddings.

The Toran

Placed on the entrance of the venue, the toran is made out of either flowers or colorful threads designed in crotchet. An elaborate one will make the entrance look grand and gorgeous and will certainly magnify the appeal of the event.

The Havan Kund

The havan kund is the structure in which the holy fire is lit and around which the bride and the groom takes their pheras and vows. Its an important aspect of Indian weddings and detailing this can add to the jaimala and phera ceremony in a big way.

These are aspects that form very important parts of a traditional wedding but are taken for granted and not paid much attention to. Considering detailing these can make a difference that can make both the bride & groom as well as the guests smile.
