If budget is not a constraint, you should select an open-air venue and go all out with luxurious decorations. You can choose a Spanish look or have an Arabian theme or stick to traditional Indian. A traditional Indian theme need not be just marigold garlands, you can experiment with different settings for a change. Starting with elephant statues at the entrance, and flower-bedecked pillars lining the pathway to a canopied stage. Ensure that the seating arrangement spells luxury to the hilt and the decor leans towards opulence.

The Arabian setting offers you an exotic look straight out of the Arabian nights. You can enhance the Arabian vibe with Bedouin tents instead of traditional flower canopies. Spanish-themed Haldi decor is an open-air affair that calls for decor with plenty of white and pastel-hued flowers and leaves. The setting may be designed to imitate a Spanish villa with an open courtyard.
