|Three Things to Consider When Choosing Islamic Wedding Cards by parekhcards||25/03/2014 at 12:30|
Islamic wedding dresses in the Arab context are inclined towards Judaism, unlike in India, where the dresses are just as royal and grand as in other cultures. Similarly, Islamic wedding cards in India have evolved over time to become the perfect reflection of an Indian Muslim culture. Subtle or majestic, Islamic wedding cards should be chosen with care, after considering three important things.
What color, motifs and styles should the Islamic wedding card have?
Islamic wedding cards are vibrant, glossy and rich pieces of invitation, just like their Sikh and Hindu counterparts. Paisley prints, traditional decorative patterns, and floral designs are available in just about any color you would like. However, if you want to stay with the traditional, consider choosing shades of green and gold for your wedding card.
The beauty of Islamic wedding invitations lies in their splendor, captivating a rich, vibrant feel. So, if you are looking for more neutral designs and themes and prefer subtle colors, you can still make the cards inherently reflective of the rich Islamic culture.
You could also go for the ‘786’ image, a motif popular all over India, famously used by Mahatma Gandhi in the invitations he sent out for the wedding of his friend’s daughter, Fatima Bibi.
Choosing the wordings of the Islamic wedding card
Wordings are a very important aspect of your wedding card. Be it the Nikaah or the Walima, ensure that you the wordings spot-on. On the part of the card where the main wordings will begin, you can have verses and auspicious phrases from The Holy Quran. The names of the bride and the groom can then follow, along with those of their parents. This can be followed by the date, time and venue of the ceremony mentioned clearly. There could be variations in the order of the wordings but you need to ensure that you do not miss out on any of the important information.
One last word of advice – make sure you decide on a budget for your wedding cards before you make a final decision on the printing. You will find a huge range of designs, styles and stationery choices. You can also choose the number of add-on cards you want to have printed and whether you want to give your guests a program book that familiarizes them with the proceedings for the day.
