For an amazing bridal entry, pick your bridal entry song first then pick your phoolon ki chaadar design from here!
Out of all the little details you’ll end up discussing with your wedding decorator, the phoolon ki chaadar design is one that gets missed most often.
Yes, your decorator gets the phoolon ki chaadar made (other than your venue decor and jaimala design), and it’s something you can actually choose to make ultra-beautiful (imagine the bridal entry photos!) or even have fun with!
The Basic Phoolon Ki Chaadar
You can literally opt for, literally, a chaadar made out of flowers.
Or you can get creative and pick an idea from what brides did at these Real Weddings!
NOTE: If you do decide to opt for a literal chaadar of flowers, we found some insanely gorgeous designs that we put together for your viewing (Pin-ing?) pleasure at the end of this post.
But first, creative phoolon ki chaadar ideas for the bride who wants to enter under something hatke:
12 Unique Phoolon Ki Chaadar Ideas!
1. Net Fabric Instead of Flowers
This gold net chaadar is budget-friendly! The gota flowers on the frame and hanging roses add a touch of glamour to the otherwise simple phoolon ki chaadar.
2. Leheriya dupatta
Phulkari dupattas are a traditional option for the bride to enter under, but we’re loving the new leheriya dupatta trend just as much!
3. LED lights dupatta!
A string of LED lights running through the fabric? Definitely a unique idea!
4. Colourful tassels dupatta
Another type of dupatta that works well for day weddings is one with colourful tassels hanging from it! We won’t be surprised if we spot a bride entering under a chaadar that’s got fringes hanging from it. Fashion trends spread everywhere, apparently – even in phoolon ki chaadar designs!
5. Dome shaped
If the straight, rectangular shape is not for you, consider opting for a dome-shaped phoolon ki chaadar for a royal entry!
6. Kaleereys With Phoolon Ki Chaadar
If you want to skip the kaleerey on your hands, put them on your chaadar!

12. Colour Coordinate with the Bride’s Outfit
You can take the prominent colour from our outfit, and add it the the ends of an otherwise monotone phoolon ki chaadar – to make it really stand out!
Tips To Keep In Mind While Picking Phoolon Ki Chaadar Design:
- It should complement your venue decor – don’t ask for a complete red roses phoolon ki chaadar if there are no red roses in your venue!
- Also consider how the colours complement what you’re wearing. It should add to your overall look, not take away from it.
- It’s most comfortable to have a high chaadar (long sticks to hold it on the corners) – otherwise, your family & friends will have to stretch their arms to ensure it stays OVER your head, and not on it. Honestly, it starts hurting their hands quickly to hold it in that position, so try and get a design which has plenty of height. It’s easiest for them to hold it at waist level (see the photo right above).
Maybe that’s why umbrellas are becoming a popular phoolon ki chaadar option – easy to hold and light-weight!
