12. DIY CANDY BAR / POPCORN BAR / DESSERT BAR

These are a big international wedding trend where guests can DIY their food. Think people picking different sprinkles and toppings for their icecream or different flavours for their popcorn. Everyone loves food and it keeps everyone pretty occupied. Did I mention you can do these up to look super pretty?

13. A WISHING TREE /MARRIAGE ADVICE WALL / DATE NIGHT ADVICE

This is a really fun idea where you can get guests to tie wishes they make for you to a tree installation or even write bits of marriage advice for you. One of the cutest ideas we saw was a date night idea jar – just so our first year is full of spontaneity and fun!marriage advice 2

14. SKY LANTERNS

Got a sunset mehendi? Sky lanterns can look super dooper pretty. It’s also something so romantic for you and your partner to do toghether.

This is so great if your crowd is likely to have a bunch of little kids. Have a section of toys or activities like colouring etc for kids so that they’re kept happy and entertained too!

20. JEWELLERY / FAVOUR COUNTER!

From dupattas and gota jewellery to juttis and potli bags, mehendi giveaways are just getting more and more interesting. One of the fun ones we came across this season was a Jewellery Counter we helped pull off at a Jaipur Mehendi. The brand had funky jewellery pieces like mathapattis and haathphools that you could play dress up with… and then keep!

Personalized pendant stalls where there is live monogramming is also a big trend! (Obv. Contact the Wedding Brigade Concierge for any cool mehendi favour counter and we’ll sort you out)

21. MELA VIBES 

If you’re going for a more mela / Indian-esque theme, get some of your classic mela games and stalls for people to indulge in – from parandi waalis, laq bangle makers, potters to even those traditional games like ring toss. As an idea, it is a bit dated but it’s still a whole lot of fun!  CARROM  KNOTTY DAYS

22. THE PHOTOBOOTH. 

Needs no explaining. I think this is a standard at almost every wedding function now. From elaborate ones to DIY ones, photobooths really do tap into the vanity of us millenials. You could try and switch things up by getting a live photobooth printer or polaroid stations too!

24. STORY WALLS!

Installations telling the couple’s story or walking through their family heritage are seriously trending. Some even put up letters the couples have written each other so that all the guests can get to know the story even better.
