From red wine to blush pink, here are the best ideas and hottest colors in wedding decorations for different themes according to latest bridal lehengas!

Hey #SlubClub! The wedding season is here! I love all the wedding decorations and the dancing! And most of all, I love the yummy food at Indian weddings! But today I’m just gonna write about something very special – wedding décor planning according to color themes inspired by your wedding lehenga!

Color-themed weddings are nothing new, but they just get fancier and more elaborate every passing year! And here we’re also gonna bring in my experience working in interior design! That’s why I created some mood-boards to give some wedding décor inspiration to all you brides-to-be! According to the choicest colors of wedding lehengas for 2016, I’ve made mood-boards with matching sherwanis for the grooms, wedding cakes, candles, food, mandap decoration and more!

If you wanna know more about the latest wedding lehenga color trends, read the article: Top Wedding Lehenga Designs for 2016 | Latest Designer Bridal Lehengas. For the groom, also read Designer Wedding Sherwani for Men: Latest Fashion Trends for Indian Grooms. Let’s go!


Rose Blush: Wedding Decor Ideas for Pink/Gold Lehenga

Blush color is super in this season, and it’ll suit light to medium skin tones the best! If that’s what you’re wearing, go for pink roses, carnations and pink orchids! Throw in some pink cupcakes, white and gold lace, ribbons and clear crystals to the décor!

Wine & Champagne: Wedding Decor Ideas for Wine/Gold Lehenga

Burgundy and wine colors for bridal lehenga are my favorite choices this year! They suit nearly all skin tones, and go very well with white and gold accents! Plus they give a classy, rich décor look! Go for lots of gold here – gold candles, burgundy roses and deep-red napkins and wine glasses. Plus antique gold vases and center-pieces!

Ruby on White Sands: Wedding Decor Ideas for Red/White Lehenga

This is a great idea for a beach wedding! Whether you’re going to a white sands resort in Goa, or to an intimate destination wedding in Hawaii, exchanging garlands on the beach is so romantic! Especially when the sand is laden with clear white chairs and sprinkled with red rose petals! Add a white cake with red roses, white crystal candle holders and some tightly-arranged red rose center-pieces.

Marigold: Wedding Décor Ideas for Orange/Fuchsia Lehenga

If you wanna wear something other than red, say a bright color like fuchsia or orange, and want to move away from roses to an even more traditional flower – marigold! This bright color theme works great for night as well as day weddings! Use lots of marigold flower, of course. Also match the wedding cake and candles to the orange and hot pink theme. Also use gold gota-elements.
