You know there is that one moment that even the non girly-girl type brides think about. It's that moment when you enter the wedding, flanked by your sisters or brothers and all eyes are on you (trust us, we know some brides who even practiced that walk to perfection). So when it comes to your entry, that phoolon ki chaadar has been sort of a staple. But what's new these days? At WMG, we think that the brides entry should be the most elaborate as all eyes are ogling her, waiting to see her lehenga, her makeup, her jewellery and after all she the one taking the plunge. She deserves her share of paparazzi moments and here are alternatives to your usual phoolon ka chaddar, ladies!
Ditch the flower chaddar for the bride’s entry and opt for a delicate and intricate golden wired mesh. When gold is glittering everywhere, use in a stylish entry as well.
I am sure you have played with pom-poms when you were young, bring out our childhood memories and make it a part of your special day. They look bright and colourful perfectly coordinating with the celebrations.
If you like flowers but don’t want the clichéd pholon ki chaddar, we have the perfect suggestion. Get a floral umbrella, this will solve both the purposes. We have to do what the bride likes after all, and oh, those flowers really can make for a great photo-op.

A slight twist to a conventional chaadar, this one is more like a soft flowy canopy .
Inlit Inverted Lotuses
If you would like a dramatic entry with large props, we think paper flowers are for you. They will add a lot of theatre to your entry as if you are entering a movie set.
In a boat
If you have accessibility to a water channel inside or near the venue a unique entry idea would be to arrive in a boat. Perfect for destination weddings, ahoy!
Under a dupatta
Have a special dupatta of your mom, grand mom or a family heirloom, use it to make an entry on your wedding day and carry your elder’s blessings into your new life.
We are raised as princesses by our parents. Now that our prince charming waits on the other side let’s make a royal entry and live our fairytale dreams.
Vintage is always classy, elegant and evergreen. Talk a walk towards a new start embracing the rich and traditional culture.
Why should boys have all the fun, cars are for girls too. A funky way to enter your wedding would be not inside it, but, ON it.
In a princess Jodha-Akbar-type palki
If you are movie buff, live your Bollywood dream on your wedding day in full filmy style. Arrive in a Jodha Akbar style palki and feel like queen.
Innovative and fun - the white exotic Thai flowers are a sight to see when a bride enters. Love the beauty of white against the busy lehenga.
In a carriage
What could be more precious than your brothers carrying you on their shoulders with pride and love and giving you away.
