A mandap is a wedding altar. It is where the most important wedding rights occur. In the past, the mandap was made out of bamboo from the bride’s village, and now it is made out of PVC pipes, cloth and flowers. Your decorator should handle the following for the wedding day:

– Mandap

– Aisle

– Welcome Table

– Centerpieces

– Garlands

– Car Decor
