Monsoon Wedding Decor Ideas

Monsoon is the season of love. It is not just about rains and muddy roads but it also brings a fresh and unfiltered beauty that mesmerises us. Be it the hill stations, city or the beaches, monsoon brings the best in everything. 

Weddings can be planned in the monsoons contrary to the belief that it can be a bit messy to get married beneath the rain clouds. In fact, the season can inspire many different themes and ideas to have an aesthetic in place. 

Here are some Decor ideas for your Monsoon wedding.

Under the umbrella

You know the monsoon has arrived in its full glory, when the umbrellas are out in full display. Infact, the season is incomplete without a variety of umbrellas, either big or small. One of the many fun ways to capture the essence of monsoon is a display of floral umbrellas around the venue. This simple decor can also be modified as per individual preferences. Like, strings of tuberose can create a visual of falling raindrops or think of hanging the umbrellas upside-down to create a more dramatic effect or on arrival, guests can be gifted colourful umbrellas of various shapes and sizes. Moreover, you can choose sober colours if you are aiming for an elegant look or you can go all out and embrace the yellows and oranges to highlight the umbrella décor. Also, you can use the umbrella canopy for your grand entrance to make it a stand out. 

Royal Theme of Majestic Peacocks

Peacocks dance their hearts out when it rains and a peacock- themed decor will surely give your monsoon wedding the right vibe. Peacocks of different sizes decorated with a variety of local and exotic flowers and satin-silk can add a magnificent royal feel to the wedding. Plan the placements and think of peacocks in different positions, dancing and standing. A pair of peacocks as a centrepiece can surely be a stand out. It is a great Wedding decor idea to maintain the theme by incorporating a similar colour palette on the wedding cards and gifts. Also, a peacock themed couch/seat/throne can be created for the bride and groom to go with the theme. 

Hues of Rain

You can play around with colours representing the monsoon season and a classic example is incorporating shades of blue and green in the theme. They will bring out the colour essence of monsoon and make your decor picturesque and elegant looking. Blue represents water and green represents mother earth, so you can use leaves, trees, flora, and fauna on satin-silk fabrics to create a rich background. Bright flowers can be used to highlight the abundance of natural yet colourful beauty, but make sure the flowers are either artificial or if real, they aren’t exposed to the rain or else they’ll get wet and look unpleasant.

Vibrant with Vibgyor

Ribbons of all colours can be used to make a vibrant canopy or multiple ceiling decorations. To add to the simplicity, you can use lights if it’s an evening wedding and flowers if it’s an afternoon ceremony to capture the whole decor in its best form. This vibrant theme, full of colours of Vibgyor, will set the mood for a happy time celebrating the union of two families and their friends.

The Rain Couple

A monsoon wedding cannot be deemed complete if the bride and the groom don’t look like the rain gods themselves. You can incorporate various colours of the monsoon in your attire for the day. Silver lehengas with airy, transparent dupattas; or sherwanis in stately grey will look perfect. If you want to stick to traditional colours, you can go for the gorgeous colours that nature displays during this time e.g. lush greens, mellow yellows – to compliment your monsoon wedding.

While everyone chooses to have a summer or a winter wedding in India, you can choose to stand out from the crowd and go for a spectacular monsoon wedding instead. All these themes and decor ideas are sure to bring out the magic and love of monsoon weddings and make your perfect day, a day of love and celebration!
