Traditional Hindu wedding ceremonies are performed inside a Mandap. A mandap is a canopy, supported by four columns, in which the bride, groom, and parents of both sit throughout the entire ceremony. It is traditionally decorated in red and golden colors, signifying prosperity and is the central, most decorated focal point of the wedding. Read more about the Mandap at weddings.iloveindia.com
