Including too many decor elements in your mandap can kill the look and vibe of your pheras or jaimala ceremony. Hence, declutter your mandap and only make a few decor elements the highlight of your wedding.

5. Make enough space for your photographers to shoot without any hassles

How will your photographer be able to make the most of your wedding proceedings if you make him sit in a corner? Allow him enough space to try different angles and don't forget to pose while he/she is clicking.

6. Pick suitable lighting for your mandap or stage

The place where all the action has to happen, whether the stage or the mandap, should be well lit. So, don't forget to ask your decorator to make good lighting arrangements, especially when it is a night wedding.

7. Rose shower for the win!

Let them rose petals be showered upon you while the two of you share the most special moments of your lives! 

8. Ensure your guests are not sitting too close to you two

You sure don't want those heads popping into all your photographs, so make sure you're sitting at a distance from your guests. Also, your photographer gets enough space to shoot you both and be more creative with the angles and perspectives while capturing your perfect moments.

9. Don't forget to be your candid best

10. Add a unique decor element to your mandap

The decor of your wedding can make a lot of difference to your wedding snapshots. And the easiest way to ensure you take away some really good photos from your special day is by decking up your mandap with a jaw-droppingly beautiful decor element like this huge floral chandelier hanging right above the mandap seating.

11. Try to include some fireworks/sparklers around your mandap area.
