Anything is done as far as it looks good and fancy on the coconut. There should be a lot of attraction given to the coconut is what we are asking for! You can add stones, Swarovski and you can draw good designs which are hand-painted. You can have anything that is DIY! If you want you can also embed the names of bride and groom. As this coconut is a piece of art you can do anything and everything and make it look crazyily beautiful. Have seen ducks, swans, peacock and many such things which go along with the shape of the coconut. For more decoration, you can simply add sequins, stones, pearls, gold beads, you name it. You can also add with gajras and add your favourite god into the mix and keep it sweet!
