The wedding cards that are found in India are known as Lagnapatrika. This Lagnapatrika holds a special significance among all types of Hindu weddings that take place in the country. The Lagna Patrika records the detailed description of the occasion of the Hindu wedding like the venue, the exact time as well as the lineage introduction of the bride and the groom. Weddings in India are considered to be colorful events on the global platform.

The grandeur of the Indian weddings is divided in between three or four days where the corollary ceremonies reach up to the main day of the wedding ceremony. As mentioned earlier, a typical wedding card not only consists the names of the bride or the groom, but it also contains the detail of the family lineage of the celebrated couple. Below are the certain common features that are found in the Hindu wedding cards:

•  The wedding cards are distributed before a month of the main date of the inception of the corollary wedding ceremonies like the Haldi (turmeric applying ceremony), Sangeet (a musical function with the relatives dancing), Mehendi (henna applying ceremony) and Sagai or the engagement.

•  The guests are given separate leaflets as an invitation to these ceremonies with the main wedding card implying to them that they all are invited to all the ceremonies that conclude on the wedding day.

•  Auspicious Motifs or pictures of the Hindu Gods like the Lord Ganesha, Lord Krishna along with Radha, Lord Rama along with Sita, Swastik, Om, Kalash, Mango leaves, etc. are all either printed or embellished with stickers.

Hindu weddings are grandeurs and occasions of celebrations and fun. Everything at an Indian Hindu wedding is extraordinary and is decked up to its best. But it’s only the organizer who knows and understands that it takes a lot behind a successful, big fat Hindu wedding. There’s a lot of planning, decision making, selections, decorations, arrangements, etc. In this hustle and bustle what people often forget paying enough attention to is the wedding invitations.

Wedding invitations hold as much importance in a wedding as anything else. Enough attention should be paid to wedding invitations. This is not only because through them you would invite your guests and inform them about the entire wedding schedule, but also because they carry with themselves an impression of the wedding. It might happen that finding your card boring, people might just not want to attend your wedding.

Therefore, here are few things that you must consider. These things will help you in making a perfect Hindu Wedding Card.

•  Include Religious Elements:  Weddings are auspicious occasions and therefore Hindus generally consider having images or carvings of Hindu deities on the wedding invitations to seek their blessings. You may consider including the image of a deity like lord Krishna, lord Ganesh, etc. You can either have big imprints on the front of the card or small motifs inside of the card in the corners. For more creativity, you can also cut the opening of the card in the shape of the deity.

•  Color selection:  When it comes to Hindu wedding cards, you have plenty of wild options to select from. Color certainly plays an important role.  Hindu wedding cards come in different vibrant hues and subtle colors. You can pick as per the theme of your wedding (if any) or can go for colors that hold importance and significance in the traditions like yellow, golden, red, etc. These colors symbolize prosperity, love, and joy.

•  The Envelope:  Every wedding card is incomplete without the envelope done perfectly. You can get envelopes with elaborate artwork and interesting cuts. In case you are selecting a scroll style card for your wedding then the envelope will be a cardboard case that further comes in creative shapes and designs. The envelope can feature embellishments like stone work, tassels, metal stickers of deities and much more.

Vedic Astrology also called as Jyotish Shastra in India is basically a science which studies motions and relative positions of planets, stars, sun and moon interpreted in terms of human behavior, their characteristics and activities. It helps an individual to develop a spiritual understanding, knowing oneself more deeply and on what timing, important actions of life are to be taken.

There are misconceptions related to Vedic Literature that it promotes fatalism. But it is not at all true; it does not predict our future but recognizes a person’s behavioral pattern and how their karmas affect them. Looking at an increasing divorce rate, many couples are worried about their marriage life. This is where the need to seek the help of Vedic Astrologer is felt. It not only helps to choose a right life partner but also in case of married couple, it helps them to have a better understanding of how a relationship works. Hindus prefer to consult an astrologer or a Pundit before the marriage and it is he who suggests all the things and bring forth the best date and time of the marriage as per the compatibility between the to-be bride and the to-be groom. It is on his suggestion that Hindu wedding cards are designed and printed specially if needed and it is he who suggests various prayers or remedies if there is some problem with the compatibility.

One’s marriage life, can be affected if their planets don’t favor them. Like it is believed that if a boy or a girl has a mangal dosh, then he/ she should only marry a person having a mangal dosh. There are also other planets whose wrong placement can create chaos in one’s life. Like the sun, the moon, rahu, ketu, Saturn and mars (mangala).

Consulting about the marriage compatibility from does not mean that if you work upon the advice of the astrologer, your marriage life will not have to go through tough situations or you will get a perfect life partner. But yes!! Your astrologer will give you certain mantra’s to recite or to perform rituals or he may also give you stones or gems to wear which will surely help you deal with unfavorable situations. Some also suggest certain mantra to be printed on the Hindu wedding cards for the marriage.

Again only mantras, rituals and gems won’t help; there should always be your hard work in making marriage a successful institution. It will teach you to be adjustable and have a positive approach towards your life partner. In case if any astrologer guarantees you that all your problems will come to an end only the methods they suggest, one should immediately change the astrologer and search for someone who gives you genuine advice. Vedic Astrologers are as ordinary as we are. It’s just that they have studied the Vedic science and can provide you with guidance. If any astrologer claims to possess some magical powers, then understand that he is a fraud.

The ancient Vedic techniques which were followed in the generation where kings ruled cannot be applied in this modern generation. In the same way, even the rules of marriage changes with the change in time. And what will printing certain mantras on the hindu wedding card will do. The stars and other planets are just energies, and an astrologer can only show you some methods to make your marriage fruitful. Just like how doctor can only diagnose the problem and give medicines and other ways of curing it. It is mainly our karma which decides our fortune. As rightly said, ” As you sow, so shall you reap.”
