FUN FRIDAY: Mango Pattern with Ganesh Indian Wedding Invitations
This groom came to us needing custom wedding invitations for his Indian wedding. He knew he wanted to incorporate three traditional Indian wedding colors of gold, red, and green along with a Mango pattern and a Ganesh symbol at the top. For a rich look, we included a dark red and gold paisley pattern as a background behind the white and green framed invitation text. Because he needed to provide more information to his guests traveling from the US to India, we added a back side to the card with reversed colors. We wanted to make sure the front stood out with a design on the back to compliment it, so the the Mango paisley pattern was switched to red and white.

Designing custom stationery is such a fun process, especially when it’s for one of your dearest friends. Of course there’s a little more pressure to design something wonderful and perfect for her big day, but it gives me a great sense of pride to know she chose me to be such a big part of her wedding. Thanks Megan and Mike for letting emDOTzee design the paper to match your absolutely gorgeous, special day!
For this suite, we started with a save-the-date card and coordinating accommodations card featuring a chocolate brown floral pattern with green accents for the script text. For the formal invitation and RSVP card, we moved the brown damask pattern from one side of the card to a border wrapping around the entire card. Carrying the same theme to the wedding ceremony, we moved the pattern to the bottom of the tall & thin programs and matching directions card to the reception.

Looking for fun yet sophisticated, this bride chose a black floral damask pattern, fun shaped border and dark purple accents in a black pocketfold for her stylish wedding invitations. The theme continued on the details, rehearsal dinner and RSVP cards that lined up in the pocket, as well as the tag for the front of the pocket with the couple’s names and wedding date. We also created matching day-of stationery, including tall & thin two-sided ceremony programs and tented escort cards with meal icons for the guests’ entrée selections.

I don’t like to play favorites with my custom wedding invitations, but I must say that these patterned vertical tri-panel wedding invitations are everything. The green, navy and gray flourish pattern frames the dark navy blue invitation panels giving it such a sophisticated yet elegant and modern look. The pattern continues down to the tear-off RSVP postcard with a reversed white background. The combination of a swirly script font with a simple block small caps font and dividing lines give the tall invitation a poster style resemblance. The matching tall & thin ceremony programs incorporate the same colors, fonts and pattern, with contrasting navy and cream stripes on the back.

These monogrammed belly band wedding invitations bring fun and elegance together with light blue stripes, a gray damask pattern and black and white dots. The black belly band with light blue monogram and white dots mimics the look of the black band dividing the stripes and damask on the invitation, RSVP and reception/accommodations card and creates a beautiful package when stacked together. You may remember this couple’s coordinating photo save-the-date cards from an earlier blog post.
