6 Cool Car Decor Ideas for Your Big Day
Decked up like an entity, ‘wedding’ cars today are not just mere carriers but the talk of the town! Whether you have a white wedding that needs you to be driven to church or a Hindu marriage where your dulha (groom) has decided to spare the horse’s back and arrive seated in comfort. And let’s not forget the bidaai where the dulhan (bride) leaves her maternal home to undertake a new journey with her man in a perfectly decked-up car! So apart from the obvious utilitarian trait, the wedding car is a symbol by itself!
With that comes the pressure of doing it up extraordinarily. Hence it is not surprising to know that wedding car decorations are a legit business today! And much has changed in decor trends over the years. There was a time when cars without floral decorations were not considered wedding cars at all. Cut to today when professionals and DIY enthusiasts are going all out experimenting.
We decided to drive you through these creative, fun and quirky decor ideas if you’re up for something new and refreshing in your d-day decor department. Classic floral lovers need not shut the tab, we have one dedicated to you as well:) For the other travellers, a path full of ferns, wreaths, tassels, foil balloons, stickers and cutout awaits. Happy Journey!
