The wedding reception of an Indian wedding is an event like no other. The five-day-long excitement, many dresses to be worn, the powerful sangeet competition, the seven phere, countless days full of Hungama and relatives you never knew existed. This drama finally ends on the day of the reception.

Getting married anytime soon and searching for ideas? Are you too tired of the cliche Indian wedding material and want yours to be different? But bored of observing the same-old mandap and listening to the same old songs playing in the background? Well, you’ve arrived at the right spot. Here are 7 themes that you can try for your wedding reception:

  • Bohemian

If you’re planning for a minimalistic reception yet want it to different and unconventional then this is the theme for you. You’ll save a lot of money if you simply have yellow bulbs around your mandap as decoration.

  • Forest backdrop

Your reception will be memorable with the subtle and silent backdrop of the woods. You can book a farmhouse and recreate a forest look for your serene wedding reception. You can use ornate lanterns for lighting.

  • Game of Thrones-themed

Nope, not talking about the red wedding. If you’re planning your wedding in winters, you can add fur coats to your attire to give the GoT feels. You can also ask your guest to bring their own dogs to give the feel of wolves.

  • Football themed

If you or your partner is a football fan, you can have your reception themed as per your favorite football club or football team. You can ask all the men to wear football jerseys and the ladies can wear clothes of color matching their partner’s jersey.

  • Library theme

If you and your partner are book lovers, you can plan your reception in a library or can have bookshelves as part of the decoration. You can gift your guests some famous novels. You can also ask your friends to raise toasts by quoting from their own favorite novels.

  • Disney themed

You can choose your favorite Disney princess and get your lehenga designed accordingly. Similarly, plan out your groom’s attire as per the respective prince. And tada, you’re straight outta Disney fairy tale!

  • Musical

They say love and music have no language. You can either invite a band or any musician to play live music. You can also have EDM played and a little show of lights to give the effect. Wear anything comfortable and ditch the lehenga so that you can dance to the music easily.

Pick out any from these and I guarantee you that your wedding will be super memorable! You can also check out themes for your wedding by clicking here.
