What do green ferns, white clouds, plump poufs and fresh fruits have in common? They are all trending this wedding season when it comes to decor! India's leading wedding decor designers and planners share some of the hottest trends that are likely to be seen at venues this year.

Ombré Indulgence
“Couples today are exploring creative ways to personalize their wedding day and want themes that are not limiting. One trend that is becoming increasingly popular is the usage of ombré shades because of its broad scope. Ombré shades do a wonderful job of breaking the monotony of traditional Indian wedding decor colors and add a spark of freshness. They can be used to create a setup that has an Indian touch as well as a contemporary vibe. This trend is versatile and can be incorporated in all sorts of elements, be it drapes, florals or invitation cards. It creates a smooth, minimalistic look and almost never clashes with any of the existing decor elements.”

Eco- Friendly Frills
“Young couples today are more aware of the social and environmental consequences of their choices. As a result, the trend of using eco-friendly decor is on the rise. Floral arrangements using cut blooms are being replaced by plants potted in pretty planters, and decor items made with non-biodegradable materials are being swapped with those crafted with paper or even fabric. When using flowers, families are being more conscious about using those that are local and seasonal so that their production and transportation is not damaging to the environment.”

Cloud Nine
“Just about every girl dreams of her unique fairytale wedding. However, lately many brides’ visions of dreamy celebrations (including my own), translates into breathtaking decor that looks as though soft white clouds have engulfed the ceiling. This is a trend that you can never go wrong with since it makes a statement without being obtrusive, and to me, it comes as no surprise that this is becoming very popular. You can mix this cloudy look with hints of green or let it remain pristine white for a more ethereal vibe. This one is subtle, customizable, and our personal favorite!”

White Delight
“This generation has seen a lot of interaction with cultures that differ from their own, be it through their favorite televisions shows, films, or even their choice of friends. As a result, one trend that is picking up this season is that of using decor elements inspired by white weddings. White flowers symbolizing purity and hope that are used in western weddings are making their way into celebrations here at home. These are used with drapes in the same hues alongside crystal elements and chandeliers, which work together to enhance the beauty and grace of the setup.”

Rainbow Ombré
“The rainbow ombré is a subset of the ombré decor trend that has taken over the industry. It makes use of bold colors to create a cascading and eye-catching effect. The ombré effect is not easy to execute when you have to swap a subdued palette with bright cheery hues. It is tricky playing with so many colors as it can turn out to look clumsy if not styled and designed carefully. Choosing the right variety of exotic flowers and gauging the appropriate quantity to be used, plays a huge role in achieving the right gradient and creating a vibrant table setting. This trend goes beyond just the wedding setup and extends to several other details such as the floral adornments, the bridal bouquet, the wedding favors and so much more. ”

Eclectic Indian
“Decor that balance the couple’s Indian roots with international influences are big this season. We are seeing a fusion of colors, themes and different cultures, to showcase the perfect harmony of traditions, and this is such a unique concept. We’re talking about a mehendi rich in Indian aesthetics such as a large peacock backdrop and rajnigandhas offset against vintage English elements such as a brown leather couch and a statement cabinet, a traditional yellow haldi ceremony complemented by white tassels and blue Greek pottery, a psychedelic after party with black and white chequered patterns printed on Indian features such as elephants. Not only is there immense room for creativity here, but it is also something that is truly one-of-a-kind when it comes to wedding decor.

Gorgeous Greens
“Unique foliage are the new flowers! Fun and unusual greens with an array of textures will provide unexpected choices and room to explore ideas reflecting a couple's personalities. Leafy garlands have been everywhere lately, whether decorating the ceremony aisle or on the railing of a long staircase. Flowing greenery exudes a very natural and wholesome feel, and is perfect to create a more intimate and romantic ambiance. Leafy silver dollar eucalyptus and dusty miller have been some of the most popular greenery options to date, but this season, we’re going to see lots and lots of ferns. Consider ferns as the new eucalyptus for 2019. Top these gorgeous greens with with soft, romantic blooms.”

Elegant Extravaganza
“A few years ago, we saw a surge of minimalistic designs, but this season going OTT (over the top) is en vogue again. Only this it time, it is more refined. Be it ceilings full of florals, life-sized chandeliers, heavy bridal backdrops or rich accents with bold colors, all of them are making their appearance in wedding setups. It doesn't matter if the venues are small or large, or if the ceremony is intimate or a big gala. We're now getting inclined towards creating lavish decor while ensuring that it isn’t in your face.”

Furnishing With Finesse
“We’re moving away from a time that was all about concealing your furniture with covers, and are now embracing them as beautiful additions to wedding themes. The furniture today is rich which encourages this shift that ditches overlays and tiebacks on tables and chairs. Couples are trying to do away with too many added elements and customized furniture is a great way of making a statement without using a host of features. In this age of minimalist approach where everyone wants less to be more, the trend of rich-looking chairs, couches, poufs and more, is here to stay!”

Geometric Gems
“More couples today are opting for decor that is contemporary, and nothing spells modern better than clean geometric patterns. This style is very versatile and there is a lot that can be done with it in order to make the setup a reflection of the couple's tastes. Clean lines filled with bright colors, metallic features, monotone elements with floral accents - there is no end to how creative one can be with this aesthetic. Geometry works well for anyone looking for new-age designs be it through elaborate patterns or minimalistic ones.”

Touch of Transparency
“Weddings at scenic locations need to do justice to the picturesque vistas. With destination weddings becoming popular, we’ve noticed an increase in the number of see-through stage and mandap backdrops and this trend is here to stay. With such setups, the idea is to create elements that do not obstruct the views and enhance the overall look and ambiance of the venue. See-through stage and mandaps also add a touch of opulence to the overall decor and look beautiful especially when the sunset sky with its changing colors can be seen through them.”

Farm Fresh
“Have you ever seen a Dutch still-life painting? Well, prepare to bring art to life through wedding decor using fresh fruits and vegetables! They will be officially trending not only on wedding tablescapes but also on other features such as walkways, backdrops, and so on! Not only does this concept add bright colors to any setup effortlessly, but it also makes for a great way to incorporate sustainable decor into your celebrations. You can pair your favorite fruits and veggies with foliage, flowers, and pretty hardware, and your big day will look absolutely stunning!”
