So, let’s ‘Om Mangalam’ this blog with the first ceremony, which is the engagement.

Mangni (Engagement Party)

From rings and parties to ceremonies and the spiritual bonding of the couple, there are a lot of sentiments attached to it. But below those sentiments, we are making plans for the decor. Whether you are planning to hold the ceremony at home, in a garden, or in a big hall.

You can arrange your ceremony’s colour scheme based on the time. If it is a daytime Mangni or outside in the bright sunlight, you can go for pastels or light colours. Such colours complement natural light, creating an elegant and ethereal look for the bride. These colours also blend beautifully with traditional Indian wedding settings, enhancing the overall ambiance and the bride’s radiance.

You can go for pink, blue, mint green, cream, orange, saffron, teal, or any other shade you like. Avoid colours that are too dark or intense, like black or white. Make sure you choose at least two colours for the ceremony, and one in case the other elements overpower your selected combo.

For the day, you want the light to pass through the tent, so make sure you add clean decor.
