More often than not, wedding decor is standard fare. There will be a sprinkling of marigold, ornate light fixtures, and a colour scheme that is dated if not cliched. In the last few years though, thanks to the Internet weddings of popular Bollywood personalities like Deepika, Priyanka, and Anushka, and the rise of attentive, style-oriented wedding planners and designers, wedding decor has seen interesting ideas. In keeping up with the wedding season, we managed to pick out a few wedding decor ideas that are going to big in 2020, so you can plan your Pinterest board in style. While researching these trends, we also noticed that decor at Indian weddings is moving towards minimalism – there are more pastel hues incorporated into the ceremony, greenery, sustainability (another big focus), and fusion of unconventional prints. Here’s a look at the top six trends that are going to rule Indian weddings 2020.

Pink had its day, now the moment belongs to newer hues like lilac, plum, purple, and everything else from the violet family. Lilac is a neutral hue, which means that it melts beautifully into the overall decor, offering an elegant, picturesque feel.

Turkish tiles

Blue is having a niche moment but not on its own. Moroccan blues, Turkish tiles, and Jaipur indigos are making a comeback. That means more earthy ideas and old-world charm. Play with whites, even blue roses – add in more cane and wicker for a classic look.

Into the wild

Wild floral fare, greens of all hues, and even dry flowers are giving a new meaning to eco-friendly and sustainable weddings. Pick a wild colour like magenta or brown and build a colour palette around it.

Multi-coloured

Cannot decide on a single colour theme? Pick all of them. The idea is to create an eclectic backdrop, and new-age weddings are working with all sorts of exotic florals and decor ideas to create a more inclusive theme.

All white

White is back with a bang and its looking fabulous in every picture. Yes, it might be a tad too plain for Indian weddings but once you add  gold or silver accents with a touch of pastel, it works perfectly.
