Decor Trends: Cute Ways To Use Genda Phool In Wedding Decor

The genda phool, or marigold, has long been hailed as one of the most auspicious flowers in Indian traditions. The gorgeous orange flowers of the sunflower family is commonly seen at weddings, prayer meetings and birth anniversaries. The flower is pretty and cheerful, and we’d love to see more of it in Indian weddings! Despite the way roses and orchids have flooded the markets as of now, the genda remains one of the most versatile- and frankly, our favourite- when it comes to the big fat Indian wedding. Here’s how you can incorporate it into your wedding ceremony!

1. Table Centerpiece

We’ve always counted on flowers to make for amazing table centerpieces- and God knows table centerpieces are a must at mehendi ceremonies. They liven the entire place up, and are our go-to for a bright, jovial mehendi ceremony. To incorporate genda phools into the table centerpiece, think rustic pots for an earthy feel, or shallow glass bowls for a slightly more formal affair. Either way, you can’t go wrong with the genda phool!

2. Bride’s Jhoola

The bride usually sits on a swing during the mehendi ceremony. It allows for the mehendi on her arms and feet to dry off without any hassles. Think long strands of marigolds in yellow and orange flanking the swing. We also dig the idea of the floor under her being covered in the flower!

3. Entrance

Of course, the entrance is one of the most common places for carnations to be displayed at a wedding. The entrance makes for a spectacular show, which is why we suggest you use your marigolds in the right place! Get your planner or decorator to show you some ideas as to how you can incorporate marigolds into the mehendi ceremony.

4. Hangings

This is where we get real honest. We absolutely love the idea of a genda-themed mehendi ceremony! The flower sits perfectly with the ceremony and can be played around with, thanks to it's versatility. In fact, we suggest the bride play around with the flower and incorporate it into her attire- as part of her hairdo, maybe?!
