We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Floral wedding décor at its best

When it comes to wedding décor, floral accents are known to steal the show. Flowers have been a significant part of Indian weddings and they have always turned venues into works of art

The timeless beauty of natural blooms at once brings to mind romance and intimacy like no other element. It’s what makes floral décor such a popular and evergreen theme at a wedding—large or small. Often, flowers are used to transform a space and Dreamzkraft was able to show just what’s possible with an abundance of it. For instance, lush blooms overflowed across dinner tables to soften even the most rustic of spaces. Trishant Sidhwani, Partner, Dreamzkraft, tells, “For their décor, the couple wanted flowers, so we painted each canvas with more flowers. For instance, we created a floral cloud for the reception and a floral ceiling for the sangeet.”
