Designing a Mandap

Never underestimate the power of a sketch!

When it comes to custom design elements, such as the mandap from this wedding, we always start with a drawing. It helps us work through our ideas, and it’s so helpful for our clients and vendors to be on the same page with us visually.

Here’s a sketch from the beginning of the design process:

To transform our sketch into reality, we worked with Carol from Under the Chuppah. Since we were looking for a very specific shade of pink for the fabric (a muted dusty rose), we scoured fabric providers all over the state. For the floor of the mandap, we wanted a very saturated color that had a traditional Indian feeling to it. So we worked with the bride’s mother and she picked up some wonderful fabric during a trip to India. Carol and her team worked their magic on putting it all together.

For the finishing touches, florals from Fig & Twine were tied to the structure. The mandap was decorated with simple gold poufs and furniture from the bride’s parents’ house.
