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.
Leftover Crackers + Phoojhadi Hearts
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.
Rajasthani Hangings & Paper Lamps
Hanging paper lamps can never go wrong and add those gota patti Rajasthani hangings from last year's Diwali - put them to good use!
Sheer Drapes in Every Bright Hue
Get sheer drapes in every hue - decorate the mandap, the walls, the pathways and hide fairy lights in them. Add flower garlands too.
Flower rangolis are just perfect for Diwali and weddings - get a pretty design and give your cousins some work. Place these rangolis at strategic locations.
Flower Floats Everywhere
Get a wide brass or stone tub and plonk your favourite flowers in - done! The more creative you go with flowers, the better!
Tea lights & Glitter Combo
Tea lights + glitter branches + flavoured candles = awesome possum!
Neon Paper Lanterns
Paper lanterns are one thing but adding bright-coloured ones to create a colour theme is another altogether. Love!
Festive cushion covers are just the thing to place at certain locations at the weddings.
Brass Lamp Makeover
Those brass lamps you had at Diwali? Get your friends to paint them in myraid hues and let them become centrepieces and pathway leads.
