Specialty of Cloth Wedding Invitations

For Indians, weddings are a huge occasion. Not just a time for celebration of two lives and their love for each other, but a celebration of being together with your family and friends and whole lot of happiness.

Wedding invitations are the first thing that one looks into, when we start off with the wedding preparations. We all look for that one wedding invitation card that stands out and yet it does not burn a hole in our pocket. A wedding invitation card should be more of a style statement, as it represents you. These days you get a huge variety of cards available in the market to pick from. Of late, Cloth wedding invitation cards are trending and is a real hit.Available in all styles, ranges and colors. Cloth wedding invitation cards are more or like the traditional paper wedding cards but made of cloth. They can be purchased online or from your local card designer on request. The trick is to choose what best suits your likes.

Few tips to help you select the right kind of Cloth Invitation wedding card:

  • Selecting a color – When selecting a color for your wedding invitation card, it is best to have a little brightness to the card. Not eye catching, but just enough so it gets your readers attentions. For me, I love all colors related to wedding, be it marigold orange, deep red combined with a little gold, or yellow with lots of silver and Swarovski on it. You can also select card color matching your wedding trousseau.
  • Choice of cloth variety for wedding invitation card – Thinking of wedding all types of fabrics cometo mind. Satin, silk, net, tissue. It is best is to keep your wedding card in Satin or Silk. It gives the invitation card a real classy look, with the smooth touch of the fabric. Makesyou just want to rush to the wedding.
  • Pricing – When a matter of pricing comes, no one wants to go overboard, but at the same time does not want to look thrifty as well. Not to worry, Cloth invitation wedding card has a range from INR 50 – 600 per piece for all kinds of user budgets.
  • Design, Look and theme – Cloth wedding invitation cards come in whole different styles of designs. You can opt for a standard square cloth invitation card or select a scroll design, you even have the option of a hardcover padded wedding invitation card. Since wedding is all about traditions and ceremonies. I would personally select a Scroll Wedding Invitation card, as this gives a very ethnic and royal feel. Theme is the second most important aspect to consider after selecting your design. Like we discussed, you can keep the theme of the trousseau you would be wearing on your wedding day or you can keep the theme matching the wedding decoration. If it’s a destination wedding, then you can always match to the place of the wedding. Sky’s the limit when selecting a theme.
  • It is best not to rush into a decision when selecting a cloth wedding invitation card. Always try to start off the process of card selection a few extra months before the wedding date. After all the wedding card is the only thing left for the guests to remember you by post wedding, so make the right selection.

Make the world a better place with eco friendly wedding invitations.

A very unique way to design your wedding card will be to make eco friendly cards. Although not much in demand, this can be a great option as one can gain extreme satisfaction in adding no negativity on the environment. “Going Green” today is the most important thought among nature lovers and hence nothing can be better than making an eco friendly wedding to support this. Some of the few ways to do this is using bags made of cloth while shopping instead of plastics, recycling bottles made with electricity, using solar power instead of electricity and many more.

However, when it comes to a grand event like a wedding we often shrug away from the entire concept. Fear, hesitation and unawareness makes up not do what we have in our minds. We become frenzy about the thought as we fear it might ruin the most important day of our lives.

Here is how you can have a hassle free eco friendly wedding invitation made:-

  • Using recycled paper – The first way to adapt to an eco friendly wedding card is to use paper which is recycled. A lot of trees can be saved if this medium is chosen to print the cards and is also highly cost effective. Usually paper which has been used already is transformed into a pulp and all ink is removed from it. Hence, a brand new paper is made that can be reused as an eco friendly invitation card.
  • Electronic wedding invitation – This is a very popular medium of wedding invitation amongst youngsters these days. The internet acts as a medium using which one can send out invitations using the email service. Instead of sending printed cards these days a majority of the people prefer sending cards electronically. The various websites offering cards has unique designer templates for e-cards as well.
  • Live invitation cards – This is another eco friendly form of wedding invitation which is usually made using flower seeds. Here the parchment consists of flower seeds along with the invitation and hence, derives the name of the living invitation. When the invitation is received the parchment is kept on soil. This gives birth to a new flower. As a result environment is not harmed. On the contrary it is adding to the natural resources.
  • Tree less paper cards – Cards made from tree less paper is another way to make ecofriendly invitations. Here no tree is sacrificed. The paper is available on online stores and has no association with any tree.
  • Personal invitations – A very smart way to invite your loved ones is to personally call every one of them or visit their houses. This way the entire story of printing a card will be avoided. Not only does this save trees and the environment but also helps building interpersonal relationship with the guests. A face to face chat over coffee inviting your relatives can one again reignite the lost bonding between individuals. Especially these days when our hectic schedules compel us to become unsocial.
