Indian Wedding is not a one-day job but it comes with heaps of traditions and customs to be followed. Wedding Invitation Cards are a crucial part of these customs as they are the means to officially invite your cherished ones to your wedding.

The big fat Indian weddings are widely known for their richness in culture, traditions, food and celebrations. They mark huge gatherings of family, friends and acquaintance. Wedding Invitations help in systematically conveying them the details of the wedding ceremonies with an objective to invite them formally. The wedding invitation cards, therefore, hold great importance in the Indian weddings.
Being creative is the latest norm. Our expert Shekhar says “the wedding invitation dealing has been transformed to a big fashion industry. People go for trendy and unconventional ideas. They prefer to be different and quirky. The “wedding invites” have become a little complex than bare “invitation cards”. The invites go along with sweet boxes (having matching graphics as that of the card). “Save The Date” or “Block Your Date” is an all the rage way followed to announce your wedding date. Days are gone when there was a single card printed; the trend is getting to get 3-4 cards printed in a themed manner representing one for each function.” He adds “though there is no single logic followed with these trends. Choices vary with different people. At the end what matters is your choice of preference.”
The market is flooded with numerous types of invitations. People have an extensive range to choose from. From the simplest of the cards to the Richie rich ones, the array is wide. Our expert asserts “there are no limits to the variety available. You will find anything and everything ranging from embossed to glitter. There are cards adorning rice grains or rudraksha on them or even Swarovski crystals.” There are no boundaries to the choice of colour, designs and fonts as well. So get your card colour and font coordinated according to your pick. “Hand Calligraphed” card is the latest fashion, which may cost more than 500 INR per card.
It is crucial to have the thing you desire within the budget you plan. The wedding invitation card cost is affected by a number of factors. The paper quality is one such factor. There are various grades of paper available for a single type of pattern. The printing techniques though have advanced much and hence quantity is no big factor. The rule still remains the same; more the frills, higher the cost.
