You’re Invited to My Wedding! Print Edition

1 May

I always knew I didn’t want a typical wedding card.

Of course, that meant many, many more hours being spent on the card than anticipated. At one point of time, I think my mother just wanted to scream at me “Why couldn’t you just pick one of the available samples and change the wordings?”

To be honest, I didn’t even visit the actual shop in Chandni Chowk where the card was designed. It was my mother and sister who spend hours there designing it. The card guy was quite enthusiastic because he’d not had a customer who wanted something fresh and new in a long time, and he quite enjoyed the whole process of designing something completely different from a traditional Indian wedding card.

Of course, I had done a fair amount of research on the kind of things I wanted – such as pinning my favourite designs on my Wedding Invite Pinterest board and googling “wedding invitation card wordings“. But other than that all I did was give instructions – “I want watercolors” and, once the design was in place, go back and forth on email with the card guy on the wordings.

What was the verdict when the cards finally came in?

Well, you tell me!

Had to almost fight with the family to get these words printed. Totally worth it. The words mean so much.

      Hey RJ, really depends on your budget. But for cards under INR 100, I recommend Jalebi Art, the guys who did mine. They were quite good!
