Weddings in India are all about opulence and grandeur. Right from the roka, Indians leave no stone unturned to make a family wedding a larger-than-life affair, with all the pomp and show. Wedding invites and wedding favours are a big part of wedding planning.
What will go with the shaadi ka card is a major discussion at every home which has an upcoming wedding in the family. Sending a mithai ka dabba along with your wedding invite is passé. Here are some fun and innovative things to send along the wedding invite, which will bring a smile on your guests’ faces.
With wedding season approaching, wedding invites designers have some great and eye-catching options to offer. Sending a quirky hand-painted wedding box along with the invite is a great and innovative idea. You can fill the box with some exotic dried nuts and fruits or cake jars. Once the wedding is over, the guests can use the box to keep their stuff.
Sending mithai ka dabba or almonds along with the wedding invite is so passé. Mason jars are cool, reusable and can be customised. One can put various types of sweeteners like honey or nuts with flavoured coatings of pan or gur, in the mason jars. You can add a custom label of the couple’s name and wedding date on the jars.
Go the eco-friendly way while sending wedding invites to your guests. Ditch those sweets and chocolates and send a pretty pot along with a plant, with your wedding card. The potted plant will forever remain with the guests, reminding them of your nuptial vows.
Everyone loves goodie baskets, especially the ones with good food. Bring an instant smile on your guests face by sending beautiful desi goodie baskets, filled with mathri, achaar, papad, chutneys and a lot more! You can select from a large variety of pretty baskets available in the market.
Birdcages are gorgeous and classy. They are available in various sizes and colours. Send a beautiful birdcage decorated with artificial flowers and put a pouch full of exotic chocolates inside. We personally like the vintage white birdcages!
You can get customised incense gift kits for your guests along with the aroma candles. You can go for cute incense holders or pretty candle stands. These favours can be used by the guests for home décor. If you wish to send some mitha along with the gift, you can go for flavoured chocolates or a box of cupcakes.
This is a fun way to add a personalised touch to your wedding invites. Get a customised wooden box or trunk with cute tins that have pictures of the bride and groom and the wedding date. The tins can be filled with colourful macaroons and tarts.
Pamper your guests with the box of love to celebrate your union. You can create a cute box of love with organic beauty products like soap, shower gel, body lotion, scrub etc. Every guest, especially women will surely love your box of love. You can also add a personalised note inside the box.
Replace the usual ‘mithai’ and ‘bhaaji ka dabba’ with these unique giveaways that are completely out of the box and quirky. If you have any other great ideas to make your invitation boxes hatke, do share them with us in the comments below.
