Derived from the Sanskrit word ‘mendhikā’, Mehndi (or ‘henna’) is the art form of applying beautiful ink designs to the hands of a bride on her wedding day. We can organise decor for a traditional Mehndi ceremony or something a little more extravagant! We offer a range of options including the classic orange, yellow, pink and green multi-coloured stages with a jhoola/swing and backdrop curtains/draping, accompanied with mattresses, cushions, Rajasthani umbrellas, fairy lights and Moroccan style lamps and lanterns.
Wedding stages are one of the fundamental elements to Indian wedding decor as it literally sets the stage for the happy couple, as well as being a key focal point for guests. Stages are traditionally present at an engagement (Sagai/Roka), Mehndi, Sangeet and reception functions. At 1SW we offer a wide range of exclusive Indian wedding stages to hire from our collection, which features over an incredible 500 traditional, contemporary and unique designer wedding stage designs, as well as creating incredible bespoke options. We can even propose on how to get the right balance for you to oversee your function without appearing afar in conjunction with your venue and space available.
For a Hindu wedding, a mandap can be a fundamental element, with so much focus on this aspect, it is only inevitable that you would want it to be flawless. We are the ultimate specialists in designing both bespoke and readily available mandaps. When developing the mandap concept, we consider the theme and your attire to ensure that the wedding mandap fits impeccably with all aspects of your ceremony, but also have a visual impact that will leave your wedding guests in awe.
Centrepieces play a role in decor for almost all Indian wedding functions, and it can be as minimalistic and elaborate as you would like. The type of centrepieces you choose should take in account various factors such as the venue style, decor theme, venue layout and stationery if any. Extravagant centrepieces can include larger than life fresh florals in glass vases or urns, round flower arches and cherry blossom trees. Whilst understated centrepieces could be grouped candle sticks, arrangement of florals in delicate bottles, crystal candelabras, floral rings or storm lanterns, which are just a snippet of the centrepieces we have available. At 1SW, we can source centrepieces to work around any theme you may have, may it be romantic, rustic, modern, traditional, whimsical or majestic!
Wedding backdrops is an important decor element at Indian wedding functions as it literally sets the “backdrop” for the happy couple as they are normally seated in front of it. This backdrop can be as elaborate, fun and effortless as you would want, as it is opportunity to showcase you and your partner’s personality. Draping and curtains are classic options for a backdrop, with the contemporary choice shifting towards florals. We have a huge selection of backdrops such as silk and satin, tailored draping, floral walls, balloon walls, LED screens, greenery and living walls, neon and acrylic signage and much more available!
