We’ll never say “no” to a party—let alone three days of them. Start the groundwork for your beautifully traditional marriage ceremony with Indian wedding invitations as beautiful as the days of festivities you’re planning and tools that make the actual work of organizing simple.
While you may be celebrating in a time-honored fashion, there’s plenty of room for design accents that mix the present and previous eras. Our updated classic Indian wedding design motifs mean that everyone in the wedding party and at the ceremonies can find something to love. Sari prints, gold embossing, and flower torans come alive in new colors and mod-inflected prints. You can invite design contemporaries into your wedding party, too. Liberty’s trademark paisleys are available in suitably bright saffrons and purples, and Rifle Paper Co.’s “Royal Elephant” suite features a hand-painted wedding palanquin of pachyderms. A design from Anthropologie even makes the cut—the perfect modern Indian wedding invitations for the clotheshorse in the family. (We won’t guess who.) For those with a quirkier eye, Mr. Boddington’s Studio offers its hand-illustrated interpretation of henna tattoos and cloth embroidery in its “Miss Anupama” suite.
When you’ve finally picked out the perfect invitation, the online design tool lets you finalize all the important event particulars and pick out any colors that might be missing from your type, envelope liner, or backdrop—we’ve designed some new ones made to match our favorite invitations. However you choose to style your unique Indian wedding invitations is up to you, including massaging the wording. Our tool gives you a start, but we’ve left you plenty of room for expression and extenuating event details. Speaking of event planning: our Indian wedding invitation designs are sure to wow your guests, but you’ll be thoroughly impressed at the way they handle some of the attendance checking and planning. Your guests can RSVP online—which is ideal for a destination wedding with a variety of events or a particularly far-flung collection of attendees—and guest messaging tools let you communicate any changes of plan or similarly pertinent updates. Track everything on the go, too, with a fully mobile web and app experience.
Give yourself until well after the honeymoon to start planning your thank you notes, but do take the time to get acquainted with personal stationery and cards (including some to match your invitations)—we imagine you’ll have plenty of benefactors in need of a note.
