Indian Wedding Decor: Turquoise and Purple

The decor at an Indian wedding is a major factor in how the whole event will look and feel. I talk to a lot of couples and the decor is definitely one of the wedding planning areas where they spend the most amount of time. Selecting a venue still takes the cake but planning the decor is a close second.

We created these guides to help you get your arms around planning decor for an Indian wedding:

They’re all simple reads but packed with tips, ideas and tools to make planning your decor a lot easier and hopefully save you some money too!

{How Much Does Indian Wedding Decor Cost?}

Decor is one of those things where the sky’s the limit.

Download our Indian wedding budget infographic to see the averages for other costs too.

Overall they went for simple but impactful. And they selected an upscale venue to host their events. I’m pointing out these details because you can start to see where the decision making processes lead to how to allocate your wedding budget.
