SAVE THE DATE!! INVITATION CARD IDEAS
Nowadays Indian Weddings are becoming more Unique,classy,trendy and different. From modernizing the traditions to adopting a new one altogether, weddings today need to be planned out wayyy prior if you want to have some crazy things which you and your guests will remember forever. One such trend that has been a popular part of the western weddings for long, and that many Indian couples are also experimenting with, is of sending out- “save the date” cards. Basically, it is a card that you send out to inform your relatives and friends about your wedding date a few months before you send them the "official" wedding invitation card.
Normally invitation cards are distributed 20-25 days before the wedding. But, save the date cards are sent months in advance, once the wedding details, like date and place, are finalised. This is also a great option, especially if couples are having a destination wedding, as it would help the guests stay prepared much in advance.India is full of masalas and bollywood masti,thus crazy masaledaar things are bound to happen.From crazy bollywood inspired save the date cards to Eco friendly, India is getting very experimental and crazy..Yes, it is all happening here.
EDIBLE INVITES: Let your "happy news" leave a sweet taste in your guests' mouth, literally! Feeling innovative and creative? Well, opt for an edible "save the date" card.Get your names or initials and your wedding date imprinted on cookies, lollipops or chocolates wrappers,wine bottles and send those out to your family and friends as you announce the happy news to them.
GIVE A MESSAGE: (ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY) Save the date card with flower seeds inside is a good yet eco friendly idea. They can be written on,read and then planted! Makes a great save the date card where the receiver can plant it after saving your dates.
BLOW IT AND SAVE IT: There is a child in all of us and what better way to bring it out than balloons. You can imprint your save the date card on a balloon which can be seen only when the balloon gets inflated.

ACT IT OUT; VIDEO: Do you have a sweet love story to share with your guests? Or, do you two love being in front of the camera? Well, in either case, a "save the date" video will definitely help you get all the attention you want.

FILMY GIRI: If you swear by films, then why not try aDilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge once again? Yes!
