When you imagine a Pakistani shadi, images of chandeliers, candles, fairy lights, diyas, awesome food, romantic music and lots and lots of colour will instantly flood your mind! However, the place where people pay the most attention in the whole shadi is the stage where the new couple stands and meets their guests!
A number of stage decor ideas have been listed below that you can use for the most special day of your life.
1- For a classic theme, use flowers and fairy lights
No fancy stage decor can ever beat the classic elegance of a stage decorated with fairy lights or string lights hanging over a light coloured curtain at the back and surrounded by fresh flower arrangements! The fresh flower arrangements add a sparkle to the stage whereas the fairy lights give an overall festive feel. The stage can be set up in shades of white or pastel hues like pinks, peaches, and lilacs. While for the floral decor, you can use various kinds of flowers in pastel colours
2-When the theme is romantic, use drapes for a dreamy look
Drapes always give a look of charm and grace. Hanging drapes is another idea that you can use for your wedding stage decor. Whether you decide to use a variety of colours or just one for the stage decor, drapes will give a very romantic look to the whole setting. Surround the stage area with Turkish lamps or flower lanterns, or add a crystal chandelier inside a tent and you will instantly give your stage that’s faraway look!
If you are one of the minimalistic types, you can also choose to follow a “less is more” plan and put a simple drape in a single colour across the centre of the stage which will also look very graceful. Use a silky material like satin for the drapes so that it adds the perfect flair to the whole theme.
3- When you want to feel like the desi royal, use the ever popular gold colour
The use of gold is among the most common stage decor ideas seen in Pakistani shadis. While the use of gold for stage decor gives a traditional desi look, setup your stage with artificial pillars and gold curtains surrounded by fresh flower arrangements and this will give the stage a very eye-catching look that will result in amazing photographs.
The combination of red and gold stage decor
The red and gold combination is often seen at desi weddings for a number of reasons. One, gold symbolises good health, tradition and wealth while the colour red is symbolic of love, vitality and passion. You can use colours for your stage decor which go in contrast with your wedding dress. For instance, if your dress is a pale shade of peach or pink colour, then you can setup the stage in a canopy and decorate it with gold lanterns and red roses, giving a very attractive look.
The combination of white and gold stage decor
Another combination that is increasingly being seen today is that of white and gold. This is a modern combination and usually involves draping the stage backdrop with satin curtains in shades of pale gold and creamy whites with the stage area surrounded by a variety of flowers in different hues.
