10 Out-Of-The-Box Wedding Invitation Ideas for Your Big Indian Wedding
Announce your wedding in style and invite your guests with panache.
Here’s a round up of our favorite wedding invitations.
The celebrations begin with the invitation. Not only do they set the tone for your big day, as the first thing your guests are privy to, the wedding invite offers a sneak peek of all the wonderful things you’ve spent so much time and effort planning.
You can choose the form – interesting paper or other materials, elaborate craft and architecture, physical adornments etc. You can create the visual aesthetic – custom illustrations, motifs, monograms and creative color palettes. You can conjure up emotion – traditional religious quotes, gorgeous poetry or cheeky, funny lines. All of this comes together to inform your guests about how wonderful your one-of-a-kind celebration is going to be.
The ‘boxed’ invitation has an added advantage – it’s like opening a present and the structure can hold many surprises and delights. We’ve put together a list of 10 unique box wedding invitation ideas.
