Got a fabulous venue to get married in? Why not make it part of the decoration? Open Mandap can be a great idea, especially if the placement has water bodies with naturally blooming flowers and trees, or at a beach with a calm and serene blue sea in the background.

For couples who believe that resort weddings are over the top, then exchanging the vows over the holy waters of the river Ganges is one of the best choices.

The gurgling Ganges right below the mandap will provide natural music during the mantra concourses and will make it one of the most memorable venues.
