BY The WMG Bride | 06 Oct, 2015 | 9872 views | 4 min read

As usual, at WMG, we love to probe around the small details. With all that hi-funda lighting and floral extravaganza, you also need to pay attention to cute things like hangings. Ah ah, don't underestimate the power of sweet things people, they are what will make your wedding a pretty place for photographs and unending memories! So here are 20 options we found in our archives that will make any wedding look like a million bucks.

1. Tea light Hangings

If you want to give your wedding a vintage look, then tea lights have to be the only ones you work with. Place them in tiny glass hangings and pair them with flowers for a luxe look.

2. Paper Lanterns

You know, paper lanterns are a decade old but they still have that beautiful charm that no other lighting can give you. Choose bright-coloured ones if you are looking at a kitschy wedding and plain pastel ones, if you want to elegant.

3. The Lighted Bulbs

Avant-garde at best, small bulbs with filaments are really retro and fun. They make an evening wedding shine with individuality.

4. Genda phool Balls 


Want to stay safe but still care for the impeccable? Then, opt for long strings of sturdy gendha phool with the ends rolled up into balls to create a sweet organised look.

5. Upside-down umbrellas
