The ideology of the MANDAP is beautiful, a four-pillared structure that is traditionally made with wood, that represent the four goals of a fulfilled Hindu life (Dharma, Artha, Kama, and Moksha). The four pillars also represent the four parents of of the couple whose love, support, and blessings all help bring together the bride and groom on their special day.
Well here are some tips and points you need to keep in mind before finalizing on your wedding mandap.
• The size of the mandap is important, consider the number of people that would be in the mandap at any given point to ensure that you have enough space to carry out all rituals smoothly.
• In case of an outdoor day wedding we would always suggest going for a closed top mandap to get protection from sunlight, especially for summer weddings.
• If you have a tight budget, you can always cut down or replace the expensive stuff. Floral mandaps are most expensive hence you can find a way of interspersing flowers with interesting fabrics and other props.
• According to Hindu scripts the ideal position of the mandap is towards the North-east of the venue. . The bride and groom should be seated facing east. Make sure you keep this in mind while deciding on the placement and layout of your function or check with your Pandit.
