A mandap decorator is a professional who takes care of the decoration part.
He usually engages a team to decorate the wedding mandap
and stage according to the preferences and budget of their customers.
For those who do not know what a mandap is,
it is canopy in which the sacred wedding rituals are performed
by the priest along with the bride, groom, and their relatives.
In many regions of India, mandap is also referred to like the bigger canopy
that is used to make a sitting arrangement for guests and relatives.
Therefore, the mandap decorator usually has the skills
to take care of both the smaller and bigger mandap.
These are the duties of a mandap decorator that
he performs in a traditional Indian wedding:
Firstly, creating a mandap huge enough
to accommodate the guests and relatives is a challenge.
However, the mandap decorators usually have their equipment
and tools necessary to construct a huge mandap.
Also, if needed, they take some equipment and tools on rent.
Their primary duty is to understand the color scheme of the wedding mandap
that their customers are interested in and to build a mandap accordingly.
Also, the mandap must be strong and stable enough to sustain
for days because the safety of the guests and family members is of prime importance.
Usually, the wedding venue has a preset stage
on which the smaller mandap has to be built.
A professional mandap decorator not only builds the
smaller mandap but also looks after the stage decoration.
He might use fresh flowers, lights, artificial flowers and leaves,
and much more to make the wedding stage look beautiful.
The chair, seats of the bride and groom, and other seating arrangements
are usually done by a mandap decorator in India.
They have their chairs and tables which you can also
take on rent if you do not need their complete services.
Centerpiece decoration, the lighting of the venue, entrance decoration, etc.
are some of the key services provided by a mandap decorator.
Also, most of the vendors have the album of their previous work
which you can refer to before selecting or booking
a particular color scheme and mandap style.
You need to confirm whether the venue you are booking
permits external decorators or not.
The venue owner might charge extra for external mandap decoration
or might even have his set-up for building a wedding mandap
and for other decorations.
