We often underestimate the power of decorations to shape the memories of our lives. And more than that, how they make us feel in the moment.

I strongly believe that décor can make or break an event and picking the right décor for your wedding is crucial. One décor trend that I’ve been eyeing for a while is color blocking. It’s been ruling the charts for quite some time and can be implemented in multiple ways for a South Asian wedding.

Color blocking involves pairing a few solid hues together to create a harmonious look. It’s origin story may be in the fashion runways, but (as most trends do) it’s seeped its way to party and wedding décor. 


Eager to color block your way to a beautiful wedding? Here are some setups to inspire your own. 

This set of steps meticulously layered with contrasting flower petals is an innovative way to color block. 

Who says color blocking is only for contrasting colors? Burnt orange is overlapped by a sweeter Fanta shade, resulting in a refreshing citrusy setup.
