Keep the following points in mind before hiring a wedding decorator and discussing design ideas for your mandap and overall aesthetic enhancement scheme of your wedding venue.
Placement is vital
The mandap has to be strategically placed in such a location where it doesn’t block the path of the myriad of guests at your wedding, at the same time it should be placed in such a location such that it is easily accessible and more importantly visible from most of (if not the entire) wedding venue. It should not block any of the food stalls and there should be enough space around it so most (if not all) of your guests can surround it and bless the soon to be married couple when they’re performing the wedding rituals.
Decor of the mandap should be an extension of your wedding theme
The mandap should stand out from the rest of the wedding decor. However, it should not be completely different from the rest of your wedding theme. Ideally your mandap should be an extension of your wedding setup just like everyone at the wedding is dressed up but the bride and the groom are almost always the show stoppers. Similarly, the mandap has to be the most beautiful and pious place in the entire venue. It should have resemblance with the rest of your theme but it should add to the overall ambience with its own traditional, unique charm. By this we don’t mean you don’t have to focus much on the rest of the decor rather what we mean is extra attention should be given to the wedding mandap decoration.
Comfort is just as important as aesthetics
You’d have to sit at the mandap for an extended amount of time therefore its paramount that your isn’t just beautiful but also comfortable and spacious to sit in as well.
