2. Wedding Bells Are Ringing

Well quite literally, you can include bells as a part of your decor. Many south Indian weddings use bells as a decor element and they look great. For an outdoor wedding, you can suspend them from a tree branch with floral strings. Or you can even use an oversized bell as a showpiece.

3. Less Is More With Marigold

We can’t get past marigold when talking about South Indian weddings. Marigold or genda phool is a very prominent element at South Indian weddings, just like North Indian weddings. The vibrant orange color makes sure that you cannot go wrong with the decor.

4. Mogra Flowers 

Apart from marigold, mogra flowers are also a huge part of South Indian wedding decor. Mogra flowers are white in color and they’re perfect for adding calm and subtle tones. They’re also very easy to pair with any other floral color as they help them pop out. You can use them as a part of your floral rangoli or ceiling decor for your mandap.
