Indian wedding cards have been used for centuries in India to announce a wedding to the community. Wedding cards are sent to relatives, friends and colleagues as a formal way of inviting people to a wedding. There are a wide range of designs, styles and religious and secular card designs to provide something to fit the needs of every couple to be married.
Traditions and customs regarding the sending of Indian wedding cards vary. It is common for two sets of wedding cards to be printed, which is a custom that originates with the tradition of arranged marriages. The bride?s family prints cards to announce the wedding to their family, friends and colleagues. The groom?s family often creates a separate wedding invitation to communicate the details of the wedding to their friends and family members.
