The jaimala/varmala ceremony is a meaningful and fun ritual in most Indian marriages. It also has the distinction of being ‘the moment’ of your marriage that can certainly qualify as the poster image of your wedding album! Hence to get the right setting or backdrop for that revered frame becomes quite crucial.
Since the lockdown is bringing the better of us (or so we believe!) we decided to put on our thinking caps and research skills to use to quirk things around and lend you some innovative backdrop ideas that are easy, eclectic and non-floral. After all, why should florals have all the fun?! 😉 Here are 8 frames you can draw inspiration from. Take a look:
