Due to the ongoing pandemic, many things have been put on hold but there are some things that can’t keep waiting for a long time. A lot of couples have waited to get married for the past one year but it is difficult to hold such ceremonies any longer. Therefore, people are opting for intimate wedding ceremonies at home as some of the Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted.

The question that arises with home weddings is how to decorate? This question can be a bit tricky as the space is less and homes are very different from wedding halls or farmhouses. Therefore, we are here to help you by giving you some amazing home wedding decoration ideas.

String Lights

If we are talking about weddings, then we can never forget lights. Weddings are all about light and brightness. Therefore, add string lights to your décor to create an ambiance. You can hang them from the terrace or ceiling or trees. This will surely look amazing and at the same time, provide good lighting for your photos.

If you want to add more elements for light, then you can go for candles, neon signs, tea lights and many more. All these elements will work as visual aid and totally transform the space. If you feel that the lights are too expensive, then you can always rent these from your local vendor.

This may sound cliché but flowers are necessary. So, don’t forget to add a lot of flowers to your wedding décor. You can either stick to a theme or experiment with different types of flowers. You can add these to each and every corner of the house and it won’t look messy or over the top.

My favourite are marigold flowers as these give a ‘desi’ vibe as well as look beautiful. You can hang them from the ceiling, put them in matkas, put them around centerpieces, and many more. The ways you can add flowers to your home wedding décor will never end, so experiment as much as you want.
