These beautiful majestic creatures are the true kings of the jungle. What do elephants have to do with weddings? Ganesh, one of the Hindu Gods, is in the form of an elephant and is the Lord of success, wisdom, prosperity and knowledge – wonderful qualities to wish for in the years ahead. And who could not love an elephant with their lumbering stride, inquisitive trunk and their close family bonds? They’re mighty cute too – just remember those elephant babies born at Aussie zoos lately!
Ganesh statues could sit on each table amongst your flowers hopefully bringing prosperity to each person who touches her – Ganesh statue from Green Crafts
