So now the big question...what kind of flowers would I want adorning my wedding venue? Do I want imported flowers? No I don't think so. I would want to go the traditional route and stick to these gorgeous colour/flower combinations below..
Aam ki patti (mango leaf), is used for most hindu religious ceremonies and is believed in Vastu Shastra that mango leaves absorb negativity and helps in keeping the environment pure.
Genda ka phool or the Marigold flower is also an important part of flower offerings made to Gods in Hinduism. Read more on the significance of Marigild flower here and here .
I love this arrangement of Marigold Garlands above and would want something close to this at my wedding...what do you think?
Another sweet smelling and pretty flower used extensively in Hindu Culture is the Mogra (Jasmine). Read more here.
