    If there is one quintessential image of a wedding, it is a candid shot of the couple at the mandap. So while this would lead one to believe that mandap design is imporant, it is in reality one of the most underrated of all decor ideas. But taking a cue from Bollywood movies and designer-led wedding shows, mandaps have undergone a huge transformation. While floral mandaps remain classic, there are new and interesting ideas that can easily be executed. We picked 8 mandap trends for 2019 that will stand out in your wedding album.
