A story or a theme for varmala works wonders when it comes to making it a lifetime memory. If the entire ritual expresses a story either from the mythological books like Ramayana or a self-made one, it can become memorable for the guests and the couple.

One of the prevalent stories used in a lot of marriages is that of the “Parshuram Dhanush” incident from Ramayana. This is where the groom acting to be Lord Rama, picks up a dhanush (bow) which breaks. After this, the bride (acting to be Sita) reaches to him with the varmala. You can either take an inspiration from this famous incidence of Ramayana or can create a story of your own.

#2. Choose the perfect varmala

The main attention of the guests will either be on the couple or the varmala that they are using for the ritual. Make sure that the varmala you choose is eye-catching and beautiful. Invest in an attractive varmala that goes with the outfit of the bride and the groom. After all, this varmala will be around your neck till the wedding ceremonies go on. So, selecting a perfect varmala is as important as selecting wedding day outfits and accessories.

If a theme-based ritual is not possible, then have the varmala ceremony either under a sheet of flower (phoolon ki chadar) or a dupatta. Yes, if you cannot make it as grand as having an elaborate set-up or a theme to go with it, then this too is an interesting and a unique idea. For a day wedding, have the friends or siblings of the couple hold a specially designed sheet of flowers, over their head. What's more? To make it even more eye-catching, use flowers that are contrasting in colours from those in the varmala.

#4. Blockbuster it is!

Make sure that the varmala is held in a centre, round stage that is visible from all angles and gives access to all the guests. Usually, it is recommended that the stage is made at a particular height to get best snapshots as well as to become the centre of attention. Yes, don’t forget the photographs, after all these will make your memories everlasting.
