You know, planning a wedding isn't rocket science. if you apply the right ideas and move things a bit here and there, you can absolutely nail a great Karan Johar type wedding with minimal effort. And oh, as we celebrate Diwali today, we decided that Diwali decor does have a slight attachment to wedding decor. Because ideas are almost the same - so why not, hit two birds with one stone? Especially if you are strapped for ideas, let the festival of lights guide you. We give you 10 Ideas from Diwali that can double up as wedding decor. ( Do not throw away those diyas people!)

Gendha Phool Garland Rows1445893525__DSC0731 Picture Courtesy: Pakhi Weddings

Those garlands you decorate your home with every Diwali? Let's just use the idea all over again and you'll never go wrong. Just, get your decorator to get you a wooden square backdrop and proceed to use your flower garlands and diyas on it. Simple! Great photo-op as well.

Of course, you'll use Diwali leftover crackers at the wedding. But use that phooljhadi to light up your pre-wedding pictures. Make a heart or any other interesting shape and get that going!

Light up your entranceway with all kinds of diyas - get a wrought-iron standee and go bonkers. If diyas with oil are a bit much, get the clay bottom and add a tealight.
