With the New Year comes new wedding trends. And while we look forward to some exciting new wedding trends, we will always love the innovative wedding details and creative ideas we saw in 2018 – think games for guests, Origami décor and trampolines, and basically anything to do with a fun pajama party. Here’s looking at our favorite wedding details of 2018 before we dive into the world of weddings of 2019.
‘Land of the pharaohs’ themed stage for a Sangeet
We love the splendid decor for Deepshikha and Jai’s Sangeet night that included a marvelous stage with a 3D structure made to look like Tutankhamun’s mask and an LED screen that displayed visuals from Egypt.
Baraat on bikes from Leh to Pangong
When two avid bikers decide to tie the knot, an unforgettable adventure is bound to unfold! At Shachi and Rikhil’s offbeat wedding in Ladakh, the groom rode on his mighty Royal Enfield, along with his entourage of baraatis from Leh to Pangong!
An Open Mandap by the ocean
Naimi and Akshay chose a mandap that opened up to create a connection with the sky as they wanted to utilize the breathtaking backdrop and create a setup that would play up its beauty rather than going for the more common closed roof ones.

Trampolines and a Pyjama Party
Pyjama parties are the coolest new trend in weddings and there’s no denying that it takes the wedding festivities to an all new level of excitement. Sunny and Shreya hosted a pajama party with a dancefloor, peppy leg-shaking music, fairy lights, good food, eye masks, comfy pajamas, onesies, slippers and your mains; is there anything more comforting than this in the world?
Golden ‘Chanel Chairs’ for a Reception
The gorgeous Chanel chairs were just the perfect original way that honed Geena and Sunny’s wedding style that added beauty to the magnificent ballroom. These chairs made for eccentric seating and completed the Winter Wonderland themed reception.

Quirky Elephant Details at the Reception
At Aditya and Tanmayee’s beautiful reception, the decor included quirky elephant details as it is the groom’s favorite animal. Elephant cake-toppers, wedding favors such as elephant candle-holders, and elephants printed on placards for guests at the sit-down reception dinner were all incorporated into this wedding. This wedding detail sure made a statement!
A ‘Gayatri Devi invites Marie Antoinette’ themed Mehndi Sundowner
Varshini and Rohit’s Mehndi sundowner with a theme of ‘Gayatri Devi invites Marie Antoinette’ blended French elements wonderfully with Indian heritage touches. Definitely, a surprising detail that gave their wedding added flair.
