Radha Krishna wedding cardFinding a wedding card vendor for your Indian wedding in India is no problem, but if you are in a foreign country like the USA and want to arrange a Hindu Indian wedding, finding wedding invitation cards may be a big problem. Indian wedding cards can be simple or elaborate, but they have got some things in common, the main being a lot of text. Unlike a Christian or Muslim wedding invitation card, an Indian wedding invitation doesn’t end up giving a compact matter like the names of the couple, date and venue.

Text

But the inner side is more or less the same, typically containing some essential words. This text includes in the very beginning regards to Lord Ganesh and the ancestral deity. Next there are the names of the wedding couple and the names of their parents. Mostly the inviters of an Indian wedding are the parents of the bride or groom, and not the bride or groom herself/himself. If parents or one of them is not alive, one of the near relatives become the inviters. The name of the inviter is never single; the man’s name is always accompanied by his wife’s name as the inviter. Next there is the “Muhurta” (auspicious time) and date, which is mostly accompanied by the date according to the Hindu calendar too. Next is the venue and then is a list of other inviters which is often quite long.

Pictures

Other Stationery

Decoration on the Outer Side

Indian weddings contain many colorful elements that typically denote a wedding. For example, shehnai is a symbol of auspicious occasions. So are various pictures of Lord Ganesh or any Hindu God, kalash, procession with a palanquin, peacock feather, tiny silver caskets of sindoor and turmeric, and many more. Plus, with the latest technology, the surface of the invitation can be made 3-dimensional and various eye-catching colors can be added to the pictures. The card itself can be in various forms like simple paper envelopes, luxurious silk envelopes, embellished scrolls, luxuriously embellished boxes, and many more.
