What is the first thing that you notice when you enter a wedding venue?


It’s the entrance decoration! Here are the trending ways to decorate your wedding entrance!


We understand that choosing the right venue and accompanying decorations is one of the most confusing decisions that you have to take while planning your wedding. And, often in all this hustle, you forget about the wedding entrance, which is the first that the arriving guests see, and often where the first selfie is taken and Instagrammed. It is not just an entrance but also where the entire wedding experience starts. So you do not want them to see the same old flowery entry as they have seen in a multitude of other weddings.


Everyone tries to keep up with the trends and makes sure that their decor looks as attractive as it can. Wedding decorators and couples have started putting a lot of creativity in their wedding decor, starting from the entrance to the bar to even the table setting. So, to help you out here, we have compiled the top trending ideas for the wedding entrance decor, everything from floral to rustic, in one place. Scroll down and get ready to save the images.


Mehndi & Haldi Entrance Decor


The first two functions set the tone of your entire wedding, so it is essential to set it right. If you want it to be fun, classy, dramatic, or unconventional, this is the place where to set the tone. Another characteristic of these two events is that they give you the maximum scope to play around with colours, so utilise it to the hilt.


1. Yellow never goes wrong


Nothing signals, happiness, joy, like bright yellow. So it is not surprising that it is the most favoured colour theme for this function. But you can put on your twist even while going with yellow.

3. Cascading Arches


The trick is to get the number of arches right. Too little, and it loses its effect. Too many and you tire your guests. Around 8-15 is a good number to have.




4. Moroccan Magic


To make your wedding elegant and classic, use laser cut archways in a Moroccan style. This is also a fresh style that hasn’t become mainstream yet.
