June 14, 2016 - by Preeti

Ribbons, elephants, colorful poofs, what's not to love? While most Indian weddings are full of jewel tones, ornate mandaps, and lavish floral arrangements, having a wedding with delicate ribbons, floating lanterns, and sparklers is just as gorgeous. And it's your wedding, you decide what you want to have.

Here's my list of favorite whimsical elements to have at your wedding.
