This month we had such fun making these customised Ganesh wedding invitations for our wonderful clients, Millie and Baz, that we just had to share them with you.
Ganesh is a Hindu deity and is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles, and more generally as the Lord of Beginnings, which makes his symbol perfect for a wedding. What we loved most about making this job is the way the personalities of the bride and groom shines through. This wedding looks like it will be such fun to attend.
Our clients chose the Sunshine colour from the twelve colour combinations available in the Paisley wedding stationery range. They then selected the ‘bespoke wording’ option for the foiled section on the front and sent us the symbol of Ganesh. From this we had a custom foil block made for them and then we hand foiled the invitations in gold foil on the foiling machines in our workshops. Foiling adds a lovely luxurious and classy feel to these warm invites which is further enhanced by the beautiful silk ribbon.
Millie and Baz also chose to add side-panels within their shutterfold invites with ample space to give their guests the all important information. Deciding how to communicate to guests that a wedding is child free is a common problem for couples as is how to deal with the wedding list. This poem they wrote is a really fun solution to the problem. It reads:
“Although your presence valued most (Your RSVP in the post),
Our gratitude would be ten-fold, for John lewis vouchers, cash or gold,
To help us lovebirds start our life – A brand new home as man and wife!
Those mums and dads we’d love to see.
This day is yours and children free!”
Their RSVP insert had us in stitches when their copy came through the printer. Guests have the option of ticking any of the following boxes:
- Will attend with a saree
- Will attend without a saree
- Will attend, undecided about the saree
- Will not attend, heard some people are wearing sarees
- Will not attend, regardless of the saree controversy
There is a great buzz to the workshop when we are involved with such a unique wedding invitation as well as a lovely sense of being part of a process which will enviably end in a fantastic wedding day this July. We wish Millie and Baz both a wonderful day and thank them for brightening our day and taking our minds off those April showers!
