An Indian wedding is both a visual and an olfactory feast. Not only does the happy couple wear a garland of flowers, known as jai mala, around their necks while standing beneath a petal-covered canopy, or mandap, to recite their vows, a bride also decorates her thick, shiny, waist-length hair with giant jasmine blossoms. The effect is a stunning floral waterfall as the blooms—usually either white or orange—cascade all the way down her back, leaving a stunning view and an intoxicating trail in her wake. “Any addition of flowers in your hair provides a beautiful accent—and a beautiful scent,” says Megan Garmers, founder and director of New York City’s MG Hair and Makeup.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
