India is a multiethnic country with many different religious groups. While these various cultures often feature similar or overlapping wedding traditions, every sub-community has their own unique rituals. Even regions differ in aesthetic. As such, Indian wedding décor is never one-size-fits-all.
PartySlate spoke with Paige Graham, Senior Design Consultant at Yanni Design Studio, to learn more about Indian wedding customs and décor. Graham tells us, “We design weddings for clients from North India to South India and everywhere in between. Hinduism, Sikhism, Islam, and Catholism are the main religions that our clients observe.”
With so many subtle distinctions amongst various communities, it’s paramount to hire a design team fluent in these differences. Graham shares how this makes the process easier for couples. “We are familiar with the terms and understand what décor elements are needed to create these various pre-ceremonies, ceremonies, and receptions. Additionally, we have in-house props that our clients can customize to create these stunning events.”
PartySlate searched through hundreds of real Indian wedding albums to find unique décor elements for couples who want to evoke a specific wedding style — while also standing out from the crowd. Whether you’re having a Hindu, Jain, Sikh, Muslim, or Christian wedding, the right décor will take your celebration to the next level.
