Indian weddings are all about the traditional glitz and glamour with the right touch of lavish decor. With vividly colourful celebrations highlighting every function, it is an emboldened fact that anyone who witnesses Indian weddings is left mesmerized. And if there is one thing that everyone recalls from an Indian wedding, then it's the decor. 

While 2019 saw a surge in peppy and floral decorations for both day and night functions, we've also witnessed some couples that went with something more offbeat and opted for darker colour palettes. Whether in the form of dark coloured roses and foliage adorning archways or flowing background draperies in dark hues, dark colour decor has become an essential part of Indian weddings. Bolder colours provide a more grandiose and avant grade experience to the guests, something which may be rare yet memorable. 

In fact, incorporating dark decor into a winter wedding is a must. Given that they make people feel warm and cosy while adding a classy touch to the occasion, elements of dark coloured decor can enhance any wedding party. 

So, if you're looking to add elements of dark decor into your upcoming winter wedding without going over the top, then scroll down below.
