Anti-Bling Wedding Cards

Over the last two years, I have had the opportunity to design three different wedding invitation packages for close friends and family. The three sets you see above were tremendous fun to design as the clients in each case were open to various creative possibilities including moving away from the standard "Indian wedding card" full of religious bling.

The RED wedding card is the most recent and brings together Indian and Celtic motifs representing the bride and groom. I digitally drew the "flower" motif that has been variously used in the card, insert, menus, table cards, thank you cards, etc. The couple was able to keep print costs down as we printed in one colour on standard card stock.

The HAND-PAINTED card was for a smaller wedding and therefore we I was able to include some hand-crafted elements such as watercolour on the hand drawn flower and the addition of red/pink thread to bind the invitation.

The MAUVE card made use of velum as a wrapping for the three pieces inside. As many guests had not seen the groom before they recieved the invitation, the couple wanted to include a photograph of themselves as an introductory gesture.

If you are interested in having a wedding invitation package designed, please get in touch with me.
