1. All White Mandaps
These days, the all-white mandap is picked by every couple who wants to keep it elegant. Some like to add a dash of red to have a beautiful contrast at day weddings, while the night wedding sees a lot of creams & golds. White floral arches or white floral domes are some of the other stunning options to pick from.
