This wedding supply store in the main market of Rishikesh is just one of four or five similar shops all in a row. A figure of Ganesh, the remover of obstacles (among other things), presides over the shop. They have all the necessary accessories, from turbans for the groom to wreaths made out of rupee notes (upper left) to elaborately decorated kalashes topped with red-wrapped coconuts (lower left). A variety of decorations for the wedding hall as well as the bride and groom can be found here.
