It is the new-age and our couples-to-be want a little more than the usual. With the harsh hot winds blowing around, the most practical of all options for an Indian summer wedding would be to have one indoors (should it happen during the day). But if you would want to have the wedding outside and at night, there are plenty of options – right from using bright colour sarees as tents or coverings combined with low diwan style seating. Too many cushions and bolsters of rainbow colours on kilim rugs can uplift the overall vibe of a dry summer evening.

Everyone wants a bright and very quirky touch these days with art and interior décor, hence monochromatic touches with pastel hues could be your safest bet for you summer wedding decorations. Tangerine incorporated with the colours, brings about a summerish feel; one that brightens the venue and the occasion too.

To add more quirk and fun to the D-Day, incorporating a few more interesting elements for the mise-en-scene around should steal the deal. For example, photo props in Bollywoodish styles with plenty of fun Hinglish quotes in the background or posing with a printed cloth umbrella (double whammy- it’ll also block the sun!) can do the trick. In a sophisticated indoor high tea style function, you can use candy sorbet coloured cups along with pinwheels to make an impact.

You can also use colorful parasole baskets; full of fresh summer wedding flowers in a pretty bunch, sitting atop the sheer and net table cloths- a perfect Indian touch with a summerish feel to the whole table top and centerpiece look.

You may also place an auto rickshaw (or a cycle rickshaw) all dolled up around the shamiana. Once again a very Indian touch and the so-summer-look bestowed.

Coconuts? Yes, Indian summer swag decoded.

Just play with your imagination and nothing would be unappealing.
