Home Makeover Ideas for the Perfect Intimate Home Wedding

Intimate home weddings are in vogue and for all the right reasons. Though more of a need in a pandemic stricken world, new-age Indian couples seemed to have embraced this wholeheartedly and how! While it is true that the pressure of planning a quintessential big fat Indian wedding no longer exists, however, home weddings too have their own set of challenges. One of the foremost ones is well, making the ‘home’ marriage ready.


No matter how small the gathering, in a home wedding setup the emphasis is all on the experience and comfort certainly counts as one of them. It is important to think about your guests who belong to all age groups and plan keeping this in mind. Revamping your home is also not entirely dependent on your space or the size of it. Even seemingly small yet thoughtful elements can change the game significantly and render your home more presentable.

Keeping the above factors in mind, we’ve listed 25 such elements that you can use to beautify your den. And the best part is, there is something for every pocket in here (so don’t worry about the pennies) Investing in thoughtful home products/elements can also serve you and your family in the long run, hence we’ve picked accordingly 🙂  So let’s get started to turn your home into your wedding venue!



Replacing, discarding or adding new furniture to your home is a great way to start revamping your concrete abode. Afterall, ‘shaadi ka ghar hain!’ Some thoughtful additions and clever placing will go a long way in rendering your space vibrant, spacious and comfortable, just how a nuptial home should be. So if you’re considering chucking out that old sofa set or creating cozy corners, you don’t want to miss out on the stuff we’ve listed below. In doing so, it is vital to remember that home marriages are high on experiences, and treating your guests to comfort and care is a big part of it. Your furniture must be able to cater to these factors.

A type of upholstery chair, ottomans work well as extra seating spaces and foot rests. Their mobility is a boon especially in a marriage household where you can place them in the verandah for guests to lounge or incorporate them as part of your mehendi decor for artists to sit comfortably on. We recommend going in for a vibrant ottoman like this to match the wedding vibe.

Rugs & Cushions

Once you’ve cracked the furniture aspect, it’s time to begin the process of converting your house to a home. And you can do this by incorporating essential and aesthetic elements like rugs and cushions. Not only do they amp up the comfort quotient, but also add to the marriage milieu. As your den is the only background and stage for your home wedding, these seemingly insignificant details make a huge difference and brighten up your space and frames!

Lamps and Lights

Great lighting is not only about illuminating but also aestheticism. For a home that is about to host a marriage, getting this bit right is the key to great backgrounds and flawless frames. Depending on your budget, you can opt for a range of lighting options and sit back to see the magic unfold. We’ve listed a few types below.


Home Plants, Pots and Flowers

There is no better time to bring your delicate green friends home than in the event of a home wedding. In a space brimming with guests and endless chaos- both visual and verbal, home plants and fresh flowers create a soothing visual landscape and have a calming effect on the inmates. There are a million ways to incorporate these as part of your home decor and we’ve listed a few for you to consider.

Wall Art/Decor

You may have got all the previous elements right and still feel something amiss, bland and dull. That is because, filling up spaces and adding cool elements is one part of your home makeover. The other is doing up those huge walls that hold the house together. But nothing about wall art/decor is incomprehensible or fantastical even if you and your folks haven’t opted for it before. There’s a lot more you can do with them apart from covering with frames and paintings (though that’s good enough too) Here are a few options:

While frames are a go-to option, you can amp things up by tweaking and channelizing your creativity. Let those glorious landscape photo frames reign in between a powerful quote frame or an abstract art or off-beat painting frame.
