My cute bubbly friend Aditi was getting married, and I received her wedding invitation card few months back. The minute I opened her card, I had this smile on my face. It was such a adorable wedding card, everyone in my family squealed with joy looking at it.
Every now and then, one does get a wedding invitation card…the same old colours, traditional Indian prints and design…but the latest trend in the wedding circuit is definitely cute Indian cartoon wedding invitation cards. They are all over the internet.
I remember seeing similar ones online, and back in my days when I was hunting for a card for my wedding, I went around asking everywhere if they had these cartoon wedding invitation cards. But no luck. The fanciest options available had umbrellas in funky colours, and different colourful bright patterns but nothing in cartoons.
I was so pleasantly surprised when I got Aditis invite. I immediately texted her asking for details, but for some (lazy) reason I never really got to share her card with all of you all.
Your might have seen this cartoon dulha dulhan on the internet, but did you know that you can totally do this for your wedding as well?
Where did Aditi get her cartoon wedding invitation card made from?
Aditi said that in Mumbai, cartoon wedding cards like these were turning out to be too expensive, so she got hold of a graphic designer in Bangalore, who she showed a similar picture and asked him to tweak it out a bit for her.
But it was not just the front page that caught my eye. It was the wedding program page. So unconventional in its look, but the story, the wordings, the pictures it was so adorable.
Aditi was having a South Indian wedding, and for someone like me who wouldn’t know of all the traditions, this wedding program was so helpful. It must have happened with you all as well, you go and attend a wedding, and you’re in the middle of some rituals but you don’t know what’s going on. One does loose interest sometimes, but having a sweet narration and a step by step wedding program guide like this is so helpful. Isn’t it?
How much did it cost?
For the graphic design, it cost her 1000 bucks. Printing was done in Mumbai. The total cost per card came to be around 35-40 bucks.
