A traditional Manavarai Decoration used in an Indian wedding, is a lasting impression of beauty with magnificently designed floral arrangements in vibrant colors adorning it. The Indian wedding designs range from traditional to modern with flair and precision that creatively intertwines elegance, style and sophistication into awe inspiring innovative designs which in turn reflect both contemporary and traditional sensibilities.
The Manavarai is essential as it is the place where the wedding ceremony is conducted. It is a canopy that is supported by four pillars and poses as the stage for the wedding function. The Manavarai is mainly decorated in a traditional way and reflects the theme of the marriage. Traditionally at the mandap, two banana trees are planted and a large alpana is made with rice paste. The mandap is usually decorated with fresh flowers, flashy lights, colorful personal adornment, and other items for the event. As a sign of prosperity, the mandap is traditionally adorned in red and gold. Drapes are a good option to explore, as using them strategically would accentuate the look of the Manavarai.
