It’s traditional that your parents will personally visit all their family and friends with the invitation ka lifafa haath mai.But, your wedding card design does not have to look traditional - that is, red and gold, with a lot of bling! If you are looking for wedding card options that are truly hatke, read on!
1. Vintage and rustic
Most wedding cards in India are determinedly maximalist - what if you want to go the other way? We love the deep, jewel colours of this one (you can customise them!) - which will keep everyone happy. Plus, the hand drawn aesthetic (it’s hand lettered!) and rusticness of this design. Also, that photograph on the front can be of something which has significance for you as a couple!
How cool is that one of our fave fashion trends also comes in wedding cards! The lasercut hardback front overlays the card, while there is a pocket at the back for the individual leaves. We need that for the many, many ceremonies we have! Again, the colour customisation possibilities are endless!
This gives such a Harry Potter vibe! Jokes aside, when you think about it, scrolls are such a traditional Indian idea. We love how the couple has updated the design with a modern floral design and their photograph on the back. It unrolls to show the invite. Also, all rolled together they look so pretty!
Sabyasachi’s wallpaper designs have given us a newfound appreciation for vintage florals, and this wedding card is one of the best examples of the latter. Look at the fine details - the watercolour roses, the 50s vintage styling, the paper doily which wraps around the card, and the super-cute map!
Doesn’t this card just evoke Goa or Bali. It totally has that tropical beach vibe to it! We also love how each individual part has been so carefully designed to show how the watercolour motif can be repeated in so many ways. And look at the insides of the envelop!
This card from Riyadh is giving us so many feels! Think of the possibilities of the lasercut panels! Having a destination wedding in Rajasthan? Have the haveli windows’ jaali design on the front. This card is ticking a lot of boxes - gold, plush, modern. Look at the inside too - so sophisticated!
