Indian weddings are like fairy-tale movies, full of glamor, elegance, chicness, and so exquisite, royalty like center stages that can make Hollywood filmmakers particularly envy! In fact, the center stage is very important in any Indian wedding as it is the area that receives all the attention, given that the bridegroom are confined in this space for the most part of the wedding ceremony. It is no wonder that the center stage is so well looked after. It is seen in almost every photograph of any Indian wedding album! Now, to create long-lasting memories about your wedding, here are some of the latest stage décor trends that you can draw some ideas from and stand out from any other soon to be married couple!
1. Lights & Flowers
Fresh flowers and light strings play a vital role when trying to impress, especially in a wedding. Their synergy is what gives that special touch required to create a perfect background for the center stage. A good idea is to cover the entire stage with curtains (soft-colored) and then add some beautiful flowers and a string of lights to infuse a festive look to the stage.
Tip:There are many ways to use flowers to create a warm and lovely ambiance and head-turning pieces. Other traditions want flowers in the form of garlands made of assorted petals while others require thoughtfully arranged bouquets that match the overall decoration of the wedding venue, lighting, or drapes. For a truly remarkable effect, you should be practical when using flowers though. For example, it is advised to use as many seasonal flowers as possible to keep prices reasonable and avoid flowers that wilt away in a few hours (i.e. baby orchids, daisies, and hydrangea). Else, you will be facing a décor with flowers that have gone limp or dry. A disaster indeed.
2. Drapes & Bright Hangings
Bright hangings and curtains make another dreamy combination. They have the power to make your Indian wedding the most romantic event ever. A background of satin curtains with crystals or bright hangings make everything so perfect. For the drapes, you can choose any color you are drawn into. As for the crystals, they surely add more energy to the special occasion and environment.
3. Satin Curtains
This is the case where the mantra “Less is more” is perfectly applicable! It is unimaginable how much a simple satin drape can add to an Indian wedding. It looks so classy as it spreads across the center stage that it is beyond belief. You can either match the drapes with the theme of the décor or just go for pearly whites and give emphasis on everything else! No matter what color you choose for your wedding drapes, you can rest assured that satin curtains add the ideal touch of panache to your wedding theme.
4. White & Gold Drapes
This is another fantastic way to dress the background of your Indian wedding stage with supreme elegance. The combination of white and gold used in your drapes looks rich and luscious and goes excellently with the festive feeling.

It will practically be a stunner that will make your wedding special and your wedding photographer a very happy person because gold looks awesome in photos, giving out a royal feeling that no one can overlook!
6. Red & Gold
Red is the color of passion and deep, indelible, and unconditional love. In the Indian culture, red is the color of power, fertility, beauty, love, and opulence, among others. Gold is the color of prosperity and wealth.

So, satin drapes in these colors create a soothing backdrop and give you all the freedom to impress with everything else. You may also have curtains of just one of those two colors and just add some amazing props to that (i.e. paisleys and window panes of the color you have not used). Complete the set with some flowers for an extra note and dose of love!
8. White (Pearly)
This is how you create a beautiful white canvas, ready to feature and bring out the beauty of everything you decide to have as your center stage décor.

Rise the romance-o-meter to sky-high levels by adding colorful bouquets. This should also give liveliness to the center stage.
