Flowers bring with them the ultimate wedding feel. Jasmine or Mogra is commonly known as ‘malli-poo’ down South and sported by women quite frequently. The sweet smell is believed to calm your nerves and help you to relax, and we couldn’t agree more!
In Hindu weddings, the jasmine flower is often used as the bridal flower to symbolize a promise as a deep and everlasting love between the married couple. It also symbolizes attachment, sensuality, modesty, grace and elegance. Over the years, they’ve made their entrance to the very experimental part of the Indian wedding – namely, decor.
Winter weddings sound like a synonym to all things white and ‘jasmine’ seems like a perfect attribute to add to the wedding decor. Here are different ways by which you could add Mogra to your wedding decor.
THE CLASSIC ‘PHOOLON KI CHAADAR’
Nothing looks sweeter than the simple mogra phoolon ki chaadar, under which walks the beautiful bride on her big day.
Mogra with any other flower that pops makes a magical mandap. Add some marigold magic for an outdoor mandap or stick to just lights that adds shine. Either way, it looks surreal.
Hangings are the newest craze. We’ve seen tassels hangings, drapes, marigold and whatnot! This time it’s for the more surreal beauties – Jasmine. A little something on the end can add the extra pop.
SLIDE THEM DOWN
Add some mogra let downs to existing pieces and get a whole new definition of space. We love the interesting peacock play with mogra. The pot filled with Mogra has been such a classic yet it looks so pretty.
Tip: Remember to add that little edge to the otherwise simple Mogra and you’re sure to be a hit.
And don’t forget to tell us which one from the above seems to hit the right chord for you!
