Wedding Ideas

  • Wedding invitations often set the tone and theme of the wedding, reflecting the cultural and religious background of the engaged couple. If you're having an Indian wedding, design layouts and vibrant paper choices can adapt your invitations to accommodate your community, culture or faith.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Designer Invitations

     


    Thanks to the booming bridal industry, Indian-specific stationary shops cater to Indian couples looking for gorgeous authentic invitation designs. These retailers, many of them online, can supply vibrant handmade papers with a variety of finishes and coatings: mirrors, pearls, bamboo, crystal, gold and silver. Your invitations can be enhanced with rich fabrics like velvet, brocade, silk and satin, embroidered to perfect your custom design. Elegant, ethnic, ornate and chic designs will all still reflect your culture and nuptial theme.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Hindu Wedding Invitations

     


    Some invitation retailers can import invitations from India. Modern, artistic and traditional designs with distinctive features on vibrant handmade papers and ethnic fabrics will set the palette for your big day. By ordering from a company that understands Hindu culture and tradition, you can ensure that the graphics, motifs and patterns best reflect your heritage. Choose invitations printed with Hindu symbols such as Im, Swastik and Ganesha on them; select text that includes pious mantras.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Sikh Invitations

     


    Anticipate a joyous Punjabi wedding with colorful and festive Sikh invitations. Customize the details of Anand Karaj cards, Ek-Om-Kar cards, Sikh invitations and Punjabi cards with embossed papers featuring metallic accents and kundan work. An El-onkar image printed in the center makes a beautiful bold statement.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Muslim Invitations

     


    Ornate motifs and intricate details decorate the best of Islamic stationary design. Known as ‘Valima Cards" and "Nikah Cards," customizable invitations accommodating a Muslim wedding will bring a touch of royalty to your nikah and mangani ceremonies. Choose a design with an embossed border and a Bismillah image printed in gold. Consider a red resham-finish handmade paper treated with intricate kundan work.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Interfaith Invitations

     


    Interfaith wedding invitations often reflect India in their rich color palette and detailed textures without referencing a specific faith or belief system. This allows the bride and groom to customize their invitations' wording to best suit their worldview or faiths. Some couples will want to include more than one religious or cultural background; most Indian-invitation retailers cater to weddings that reflect the specific couple as well as their heritage.


     


    Indian Wedding Invitations: Scroll Invitations

     


    Scroll wedding invitations are the traditional Indian invitations of the kings. These majestic and exquisite designs retain their royal connotation and reflect opulent celebrations. Printed on fabric, handmade paper, velvet or vellum paper, the scrolls are often held by ornate bars on either end and tied with tassels. Send your scroll wedding invitations in soft handmade Resham envelopes. Your guests will be impressed and will look forward to the gorgeous event to come.

  • For creative brides, do-it-yourself wedding invitations or save the date magnets might be a rewarding challenge. Often the budget-friendly choice, creating your own invitations can give you the creative freedom and reflection of personal style that isn't available from many stationary providers.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Learn and Experiment

     


    Even crafty types probably have a lot to learn; consider signing up for a class at a local craft or design store and familiarize yourself with specialty papers, stamping techniques and artful folding. Consult with books, online resources and other do-it-yourself brides when brainstorming your invitations' designs. As you start to narrow down your options, practice and experiment with your ideas. You may discover that translating an idea into a tangible craft is not as simple as it seems; conversely, you may encounter a fresh idea once you start to play with the actual materials. Consult with friends and contacts that have graphic-design backgrounds. They may have valuable layout and wording insight to contribute.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Start with the Basics

     


    You'll probably want to buy envelopes rather than make them, so pick your envelopes before you start making your invitations. This way, you can design with the envelope measurements in mind; you want the invites and all additional inserts to slide in and out easily. After you've selected envelopes, consider your wedding colors and formality of the occasion. Select paper that reflects the style of the day and coordinates with your palette. Many brides opt for classic neutral colors, but there's plenty of room for creative freedom when designing your own. Visit stationary stores and invitation suppliers to check out invitation designs you may want to adopt as your own. Single panel, folded, tri-folded and other shapes and designs will each present unique advantages and challenges.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Start Early and Stock Up

     


    As soon as you can, make a sample of your do-it-yourself invitations. This way you'll have an idea about which supplies you need and how much time to realistically budget for their creation. Always buy more supplies than you think you need, as mistakes happen. Find supplies at craft stores, through online resources, and at stationary and invitation-specific retailers. Don't be afraid to consult with the experts as you try to make your vision become reality. If you're designing your invitations on a computer, local print shops will accommodate your printing needs. Do your research as you design your invites. Supply costs can add up; if you're not careful, a do-it-yourself invitation can cost more than a one purchased through a stationary company.


     


    Do-It-Yourself Wedding Invitations: Assembly Lines and Recruited Help

     


    Be efficient with your time and prepare supplies in advance. Instead of creating one invitation at a time, do your cutting and folding and stamping in batches and then put them together. Treat the card-creation process as an assembly line. Anticipate that making your own invitations will be a lengthy process and expect to take up to two weeks making them. Recruit family and friends to help out. Making invitations together can be a fun bonding time; just be sure to have a clear template and to proofread every invitation carefully before mailing anything.

  • Still in Love Artist: Brian McKnight Album: From Here to There: 1989-2002 Description Not Provided Lyrics STILL IN LOVE (Brian McKnight)

    (Verse)
    I think I must be dreaming
    That you are here with me
    Must have died and gone to heaven
    And it's all that I hoped it would be

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    When it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you

    (Verse)
    I live to be around you
    You take my breath away
    Can't help but talk about you
    Every night and day

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    And it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you

    (Bridge)
    All I need is you
    Need you just to hold me, console me
    Over and over.......I love you

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    And it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you
    Still in love with you

  • Planning a beach wedding? Let your invitations reflect the theme of your big day. Beach wedding invitations can capture the relaxed sun-kissed feel of the event you're planning and let guests know what to anticipate in advance of your dream day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Details

     


    A beach wedding accommodates many design styles and personalities; consider your wedding's overall design scheme before ordering your invitations or save the date magnets. For a natural, serene wedding, capture breezy simplicity on parchment or linen invitations. Add seaside-inspired elements like seashells and coral, or tie in a nautical theme with stripes, anchor motifs and rustic details. Garden or tropical flower designs, such as hibiscus flowers or bamboo shoots, will point to your definition of "beach wedding." If the beach wedding is also a destination wedding, use the ceremony's location as part of your stationary strategy. Cleverly use a watermark behind the wording: a sandcastle, flip-flops, a sailboat or palm tree. Photography works well, too; incorporate a photograph of the beach landscape in your invites, or use a picture of you and your spouse-to-be by the water. Personalize the beach wedding invitations to reflect you as a couple.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Colors

     


    The color palette used in your beach wedding invitations can both reflect the colors in your wedding and the colors of the beach setting. Sage greens, light blues and soft browns will capture a serene by-the-water feel, while vibrant colors like pinks, corals and azure blues might allude to a more tropical affair. A wedding at sunset might dictate richer colors against dark stationary. Consider what the wedding programs will look like at your beachside wedding and try to design invitations that coordinate with those paper choices. By blending your wedding colors with the location, you'll be creating invitations that reflect both your personal style and your big day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Unique Design

     


    Because beach weddings are often casual and unique expressions of a bride and groom, take advantage of the creative license granted you and use theme-revealing graphics, additional textures, layered materials and loose inserts. Use rope or hand-tied bows instead of a paper wrapped band around your invites; let seashells or beads give your stationary dimension; add a shimmering sand-like border.  Some stationary providers even provide beach-scented paper or offer beach-related confetti shapes. The options are seemingly endless.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Wording

     


    Let the invitation wording reflect your beach wedding location. Include a poem or short romantic prose about exchanging vows on the sand. Use words like "paradise" or "twilight" and reference the waves, the sun and the romance of the beach. Even the most formally worded invitations can include an insert that specifies location and accommodation information and alludes to the feel of the area. Use every opportunity to use your invitation to get guests excited for your beach wedding.

  • Wedding showers, often hosted by the maid of honor, bridesmaids, or mother of the bride or groom, celebrate the impending marriage about one month in advance of the ceremony. While traditionally women-only, some showers are now co-ed. These showers can be customized to the bride or couple; a shower is a party, not a rigid ritual. Wedding shower invitations should reflect the shower's theme and bride's personality and be sent out about two months before the wedding.


     


    Wedding Shower Invitations: What to Include

     


    For large showers, response cards inserted in the wedding shower invitations are a practical way to keep track of RSVPs. Small intimate affairs might use phone and email as the preferred response tools.


     


    Include wedding-shower registry information in the invitation. Especially at theme showers, the risk of duplicate gifts runs high; registries ensure that the bride receives gifts she will appreciate without having the hassle of organizing multiple returns. Also include directions and a map to the shower location. If the wedding shower is a surprise, stress this in the invitations and advise guests where to park so as not to give away the location and when their arrival is expected.


     


    Specify who the host of the shower is, and provide contact information for guests who may have questions. Be sure to include the bride's full name, as some guests may be more familiar with the groom than with her. Detail the shower's theme and let the guests knows what to expect in terms of food, games and dress code. If it's a potluck, make this clear and include this food detail on your response cards.


     


    Wedding Shower Invitations: Themes

     


    Let the wedding shower invitations reflect the theme of the shower. A springtime shower might dictate floral invitations with vibrant pastel hues and garden accents. For a kitchen shower, consider invitations that include baking graphics. Insert blank recipe cards into the invitations and have guests fill them out with favorite recipes; a recipe box at the shower quickly becomes a sentimental and practical gift for the bride. Lingerie shower invitations might include sexier fonts, feather embellishments and a sense of humor. Have fun with themes; a wedding shower invitation can be more casual and fun than a traditional wedding invitation.


     


    Wedding Shower Invitations: Design Options

     


    There are no steadfast rules in wedding-shower-invitation design. Consider a die-cut shape like a heart, umbrella, suitcase or wedding dress instead of a rectangular card; don't feel confined to neutral backgrounds or traditional font colors either. Get creative with the design and let the bride's personality shine through the invitations.  Using a photograph of the bride is a fun way to make the day all about her. For more formal showers, use fancier fonts and subtler color palettes on neutral backgrounds. Just be sure to keep the mood light and non-stuffy. One design option is to make the wedding shower invitations complement the actual wedding invitations; if a common theme, style or color ties all the stationary together, the bride's keepsakes from her entire wedding experience will look stylistically cohesive.

Treat the card-creation process as an assembly line. Anticipate that making your own invitations will be a lengthy process and expect to take up to two weeks making them. Recruit family and friends to help out. Making invitations together can be a fun bonding time; just be sure to have a clear template and to proofread every invitation carefully before mailing anything.

  • Still in Love Artist: Brian McKnight Album: From Here to There: 1989-2002 Description Not Provided Lyrics STILL IN LOVE (Brian McKnight)

    (Verse)
    I think I must be dreaming
    That you are here with me
    Must have died and gone to heaven
    And it's all that I hoped it would be

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    When it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you

    (Verse)
    I live to be around you
    You take my breath away
    Can't help but talk about you
    Every night and day

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    And it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you

    (Bridge)
    All I need is you
    Need you just to hold me, console me
    Over and over.......I love you

    (Chorus)
    When the eagles forget how to fly
    And it's twenty below in July
    And when violets turn red
    And roses turn blue
    I'll be still in love with you
    Still in love with you

  • Planning a beach wedding? Let your invitations reflect the theme of your big day. Beach wedding invitations can capture the relaxed sun-kissed feel of the event you're planning and let guests know what to anticipate in advance of your dream day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Details

     


    A beach wedding accommodates many design styles and personalities; consider your wedding's overall design scheme before ordering your invitations or save the date magnets. For a natural, serene wedding, capture breezy simplicity on parchment or linen invitations. Add seaside-inspired elements like seashells and coral, or tie in a nautical theme with stripes, anchor motifs and rustic details. Garden or tropical flower designs, such as hibiscus flowers or bamboo shoots, will point to your definition of "beach wedding." If the beach wedding is also a destination wedding, use the ceremony's location as part of your stationary strategy. Cleverly use a watermark behind the wording: a sandcastle, flip-flops, a sailboat or palm tree. Photography works well, too; incorporate a photograph of the beach landscape in your invites, or use a picture of you and your spouse-to-be by the water. Personalize the beach wedding invitations to reflect you as a couple.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Colors

     


    The color palette used in your beach wedding invitations can both reflect the colors in your wedding and the colors of the beach setting. Sage greens, light blues and soft browns will capture a serene by-the-water feel, while vibrant colors like pinks, corals and azure blues might allude to a more tropical affair. A wedding at sunset might dictate richer colors against dark stationary. Consider what the wedding programs will look like at your beachside wedding and try to design invitations that coordinate with those paper choices. By blending your wedding colors with the location, you'll be creating invitations that reflect both your personal style and your big day.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Unique Design

     


    Because beach weddings are often casual and unique expressions of a bride and groom, take advantage of the creative license granted you and use theme-revealing graphics, additional textures, layered materials and loose inserts. Use rope or hand-tied bows instead of a paper wrapped band around your invites; let seashells or beads give your stationary dimension; add a shimmering sand-like border.  Some stationary providers even provide beach-scented paper or offer beach-related confetti shapes. The options are seemingly endless.


     


    Beach Wedding Invitations: Wording

     


    Let the invitation wording reflect your beach wedding location. Include a poem or short romantic prose about exchanging vows on the sand. Use words like "paradise" or "twilight" and reference the waves, the sun and the romance of the beach. Even the most formally worded invitations can include an insert that specifies location and accommodation information and alludes to the feel of the area. Use every opportunity to use your invitation to get guests excited for your beach wedding.

  • Wedding showers, often hosted by the maid of honor, bridesmaids, or mother of the bride or groom, celebrate the impending marriage about one month in advance of the ceremony. While traditionally women-only, some showers are now co-ed. These showers can be customized to the bride or couple; a shower is a party, not a rigid ritual. Wedding shower invitations should reflect the shower's theme and bride's personality and be sent out about two months before the wedding.


     


    Wedding Shower Invitations: What to Include

     


    For large showers, response cards inserted in the wedding shower invitations are a practical way to keep track of RSVPs. Small intimate affairs might use phone and email as the preferred response tools.


     


    Include wedding-shower registry information in the invitation. Especially at theme showers, the risk of duplicate gifts runs high; registries ensure that the bride receives gifts she will appreciate without having the hassle of organizing multiple returns. Also include directions and a map to the shower location. If the wedding shower is a surprise, stress this in the invitations and advise guests where to park so as not to give away the location and when their arrival is expected.


     


    Specify who the host of the shower is, and provide contact information for guests who may have questions. Be sure to include the bride's full name, as some guests may be more familiar with the groom than with her. Detail the shower's theme and let the guests knows what to expect in terms of food, games and dress code. If it's a potluck, make this clear and include this food detail on your response cards.


     


    Wedding Shower Invitations: Themes

     


    Let the wedding shower invitations reflect the theme of the shower. A springtime shower might dictate floral invitations with vibrant pastel hues and garden accents. For a kitchen shower, consider invitations that include baking graphics. Insert blank recipe cards into the invitations and have guests fill them out with favorite recipes; a recipe box at the shower quickly becomes a sentimental and practical gift for the bride. Lingerie shower invitations might include sexier fonts, feather embellishments and a sense of humor. Have fun with themes; a wedding shower invitation can be more casual and fun than a traditional wedding invitation.


     


    Wedding Shower Invitations: Design Options

     


    There are no steadfast rules in wedding-shower-invitation design. Consider a die-cut shape like a heart, umbrella, suitcase or wedding dress instead of a rectangular card; don't feel confined to neutral backgrounds or traditional font colors either. Get creative with the design and let the bride's personality shine through the invitations.  Using a photograph of the bride is a fun way to make the day all about her. For more formal showers, use fancier fonts and subtler color palettes on neutral backgrounds. Just be sure to keep the mood light and non-stuffy. One design option is to make the wedding shower invitations complement the actual wedding invitations; if a common theme, style or color ties all the stationary together, the bride's keepsakes from her entire wedding experience will look stylistically cohesive.
