Indian Wedding Decorations
The Wedding was held at the same venue as the Musical Night and within less than 24 hours, the decorations were changed to be unique from the previous night and were spectacular.
From the colorful flower walkway, to the greeting stand where the bride and groom exchange garlands before the wedding ceremony, to the wedding stage decorated with fresh flowers, is eye pleasing.
Musical Event Decorations
Among the many pre-wedding events that occur prior to the Hindu, Punjabi, and Gujarati wedding ceremonies, the Sangeet is where the party begins. The word Sangeet translates to ‘sung together’ from Sanskrit. Unlike religious ceremonies such as the Haldi or portions of the wedding ceremony, the Sangeet is solely conducted to relish in the happiness and joy surrounding the couple.

Sangeet Event Decorations
The word “Sangeet “ means music, but when it is used as a term to describe a celebratory event during an Indian wedding it translates to Music Night or Musical party. This musical night is a celebration of the union of not only the couple but the bonding of both families. A sangeet usually takes place the night before the wedding. It can feel very similar to a wedding reception, with food, dancing, and fun—and everyone is invited! The couple’s family members and friends perform special dances to celebrate the couple.

Haldi Ceremony Decorations
Warmed to the very core with the color of sunshine, a Haldi (Turmeric) ceremony is one tradition of many that brings a unique feel to an Indian wedding. Haldi or turmeric paste is renowned for cleansing and purifying couple’s body before they enter into holy matrimony. Additionally, it symbolizes the happy start of a new life together. Haldi is said to safeguard the bride and groom from any negative omen that may damage them before the wedding.

Wedding Decorations in India
We attended in January 2023 a spectacular wedding in Hyderabad, India. There were five events for the wedding and the decorations at different venues were all unique, elegant, and colorful. The decorations at these events were at a different level, but reflected the normal festive spirit of celebrating Indian weddings.
The first event was the Welcome Party where family and friends of the groom and bride introduced themselves and had an outdoor party with live music.
A Farm for Photo Shoots
While at the resort in India, we went for dinner at a farm close by. It was a multipurpose farm with not only a place growing fresh vegetables and flowers and serving delicious dinner, but also a photo location for professional wedding and ad shots.

A Chapel in Yosemite
Of the structures in public use in Yosemite National Park, the Yosemite Valley Chapel is now the oldest. This little New England style church was built under the sponsorship of the California State Sunday School Association, partly by subscriptions from the children, but mainly from the voluntary contributions of prominent members of the Association.
Although the Chapel continues today primarily as a house of worship, over the years it has become a popular wedding destination due to the spectacular setting and the quaint beauty of the building. The first Chapel wedding took place on October 24, 1884.
