Peacock Themed/Hindu Wedding Invitations

Anjali's wedding invitations have been the most detailed suite I have done to date. They included magenta and gold thermography printing, flat printing, a layer of raw silk and over 20 Swarovski crystals on each invitation suite, all enclosed in a gold shimmer pocket fold.

When I met with Anjali and her wedding coordinator, Lindsey Nartker of LND Events back in November she wanted to have a custom designed invitation with a peacock theme. We went with just the peacock feather for her save the dates, but for her invitation, she wanted to add the illustration of the bird as well. Inspired by a pair of gold peacock earrings that were her mother's, we set out to create a design that was unique and meaningful. The earrings have three tiers of "feathers" and Anjali had the idea to have the feathers on the design flow over the 4 cards in the pocket fold to represent the tiers of on her mom's earrings.

What is really cool, is when you unfold the pocket fold, the body of the bird is on the invitation and the design continues on down onto the insert cards, so it looks as one continuous design.

We did a custom timeline of events for the day and specific inserts for the Mehndi/Sangeet celebration that went to the bride's guests and an insert for the Saant ceremony for the groom's guests. Anjali also opted for custom stamps on her response card and mailing envelope.
