These Temple Weddings Blew Our Minds Away

BY Meenu | 24 Apr, 2021 | 6389 views | 3 min read

Looks like COVID and the restrictions on weddings are here to stay. So how do we make our intimate weddings really special? One way is to choose a gorgeous location that still lets you distance your guests. While we have seen stayacation weddings at exotic beaches and islands there is something surreal about a temple wedding.

Especially when you have that celestial vibe around your wedding it surely is something else. Temple weddings are quite common in the South where each family has an ancestral temple. Getting married in your ancestral temple is not just being one with your ancestors. Given the present scenario, it would be something really special too.

This is another fabulous night temple wedding set up which has us rooted to the spot. Look at the lighting which makes takes the ambience to a notch above. After that they have added classic seating and surrounded the area with banana trees, flowers and plants in brass urlis. Isn’t it just awesome!

If you have chosen the temple you are planning to get married in, then this is how the entry way should be you guys!! Be it the bells or the green or the strings of mogra, every element is perfect. Pin this for some inspiration.

What if you are planning a day wedding? Would a temple be a great choice? Well of course!! Check this out where the temple tank and the steps towards it have been made so beautiful and elegant. Your mandap could always be right in the middle of the water body! You have the dreamy set up right there.

Use a lot of traditional elements and colors in your décor. Include loads of brass, banana trees, mogra for added effect.

There are so many of these old temples down South that you can choose from. The theyyam and the chenda would be a fabulous idea to include with your entry!! It sticks with the theme of the temple wedding, and has such a positive vibe. And check out this wedding, where the couple recreated a temple setting!

If you are one of those couples who have their wedding is in the second half of this year, or the start of next year and you want a larger temple wedding, do this. Create your ancestral temple in a larger way so that all your guests can come and live the experience.
