A GUIDE TO TYPES OF INDIAN WEDDING INVITATION
CARDS At a time when e-invites are ruling the
roost, Indian wedding invitation cards still
cling to parchment and mirror work. In fact,
Indian wedding invitation cards are being
reinvented and are very much in demand because
they are unique, quaint and quite rare. It is no
exaggeration to say that marriage invites are a
matter of pride and honor for many families!
Many couples select antique designs and send the
elaborately printed cards to their friends and
relatives far away.
These days, many Indian families living abroad
hold wedding ceremonies outside India, or they
rush to India for the ceremony. In such cases, it
is important to plan for and print the
invitation card ahead of time. There are two ways
in which marriage invites may be designed and
printed. The first option is to approach a
traditional wedding invitation printing company
and get the card printed from them. However, if
you live outside India or are looking for a good
variety of designs to choose from, this option
may not suit your needs. The second alternative
is to opt for online wedding invitation card
suppliers that specialize in Indian wedding
cards. It is important to buy from specialists
because traditional Indian wedding cards are
steeped in religious and cultural significance.
No one can design and create Indian wedding
cards better than those who have ample experience
doing it. Indian wedding invitations may be
divided into various broad categories

Religious wedding invitations Specific designs,
colors and styles are preferred by people
belonging to different communities. Therefore,
there are different invitation cards for the
Hindu wedding, the Sikh wedding, the Muslim
wedding and so on. However, whether the cards
are for a Muslim Nikaah or for the Sikh Anand
Karjat, one may expect intricate designs and
beautiful ornaments on the wedding card itself.
In fact, vibrant colors, traditional designs and
rich decoration are a vital and inseparable part
of Indian marriage invites. Wedding Cards
Design Interfaith wedding invitations These
wedding cards are becoming more popular with the
passage of time as inter-faith marriages are
quite new for India. Some of the designs are
delightful and quite non-conventional.
Themed invitation cards Since the Indian wedding
is steeped in age old traditions and practices,
it is only natural that many people choose to buy
themed invitation cards. The scroll invitation
card is an example. Here, the marriage invite is
made to resemble a royal scroll, reminding one
of the messages that were sent out by royalty in
the past. Graphic Designer Once the wedding
invitation design is in place, it is necessary to
arrive at the right words and present these
words beautifully. Indian wedding invitations
generally mention the lineage of the bride and
the groom. Cards may also carry religious verses
or the image of deities. In fact, these are the
very elements that make up the Indianness of
the cards. Therefore, these elements cannot be
overlooked. When designing Indian wedding
invitations, one must not lose sight of the
textures, colors, designs and decorations that
make up the Indian look. It is also necessary to

design matching envelopes for the cards. As they
say, God is in the details and one cannot miss
the details when designing these beautiful cards.
