Saafas refer to those turbans that are made from a colorful strip of a cloth. The culture of tying Saafa has almost become an inherent part of the Indian weddings and it is considered as one of the most essential accessory for the Groom. Most of the time, a kalgi, that is in the form of a little broach, is tucked on the turban from its front side. It generally accompanies feather with it.

Rajasthani turbans are knows for offering a royal appeal to its wearer. It is known to the all, that during olden time; kings would wear turbans that would also feature a kalgi in it. Generally, a kalgi would include precious stones and a feather and by looking at the richness of it, it was easy to make out that who is the king. However, turbans are still the inherent element of the attires of the traditional village men.

Generally, the width of a pagari is 9 inch width and its length is 52 feet. On the contrary, Saafa is of small length and it is broader.

Earlier, the majority of the people knew an art of tying turban but due to the modernization, this art is now gradually dying. It is generally the older generation that ties the turbans during weddings or some expert is being called to tie the turban to the groom. These experts are known as pagribands. A falguniya turban featuring red or white color is worn during spring season. The dotted chunri or bright colors indicates an auspicious occasion like marriage or birth of a child. A panchrangi turban features five different colors and is worn by the rajputs mainly that too of Jodhpur region. A lahariya turban is worn during the season of rains. Zari turban is created out of the rich-textured cloth like silk and Zari and is worn by the groom during the formal occasion of marriage. According to the colors as well, the turbans differ from one and another. For an instance, bright colors like pink, green, red, etc are worn during auspicious occasions and during festivals. On the contrary, dull colors like maroon, khaki, etc are worn during distressing occasions.

Wedding is a ritual that has been performed by all religions since the creation of universe, it seems. This tradition has undergone many changes but the institution remains as important as it was in earlier times. As traditional as wedding is so is the tradition of sending invites; but this tradition also has undergone significant changes. Invites in Middle India were sent in the form of Yellow Rice (Peele Chawal). Yellow Rice is an auspicious symbol that initiate wedding. This tradition is still followed but as in earlier times the symbolic rice is not sent as the form of invitation. This tradition was long back, and then came the tradition of sending lagan Patrika which was a type of wedding invite.

People still follow customary way of inviting friends and relatives but with modern methods. The wedding invites to the distant relatives were sent through snail mails earlier. The relatives were informed much earlier through Manuhar patrika and then invites were sent through snail mails. Now with the advancement of technology the world has become small and so it is easier to contact distant relatives and make them a part of all the ceremonies. The wedding cards are no longer difficult to send as there is now the option of e-cards. Wedding cards can be customized online and can be sent to as many friends and relatives as one wants. This method of inviting people has made the whole process much easier to execute.

Drastic change from Tradition to Modernity in Cards

The printed cards have also undergone many changes the design, font and paper all are different from the middle ages. The wedding cards in traditional times were hand written but now these are printed and that too in many styles: engraving, lithography, thermograph, letterpress printing, sometimes blind embossing, compression plate process, or offset printing. Earlier the clichéd words were written on almost all cards but now people have let their creativity fill the simple words in the form of poetry and prose. The response cards  are also attached with the cards which require the response of the guests that they are attending the wedding or not. The response cards help the host to make the necessary arrangements. Wedding websites are also a new development that has taken place. These websites contain all the information about the wedding and guests can visit these any time to get all the updates about the same. The guests can also register whether they would be coming to attend the wedding or not. These websites contain all the necessary information about the wedding along with pictures. This makes the event more personal as distant relatives can view all the ceremonies.

Wedding and the manner of its execution may have undergone various changes but the bond that one shares with family and friends is still the same; one still holds the values and customs close to the heart. The technological advancement has made everything easier keeping the tradition intact. The family and friends still enjoy the festivities with full zest and vigor.

Muslim Wedding Invitations

Muslim Wedding Invitations

In the wake of availability of designer wedding invitations, people come across great choice & great designs. Apart from designer wedding cards, one can choose a wedding invitation on the basis of budget, paper texture, exclusive religious motifs, color, type of printing, size, embellishment, etc.

For a Muslim wedding, there are now available plenty of options including exquisite designs, patterns & texture. While choosing an invitation card, Muslim people would not give much importance to the design of the wedding card but now the trend has changed and Muslim people look for a wedding invitation featuring unique artistic appeal. Apart from conventional wedding card artists, & wedding invitation designing firms, online wedding invitation shops have big time started grabbing the attention of Muslim people for the simple fact that they offer more convenience & flexibility.

If we talk about the embellishment of Muslim wedding cards then there are plenty of ways a card can be made beautiful & unique. For an instance, designers generally adorn a wedding card by beautiful Kundan stones, pearl, crystal, sequins, etc. Generally, a Muslim wedding event comprises of two main events – Nikaah & Walima. Where Nikaah is the main wedding, on another side, Walima is like a reception which is held after wedding ceremony. Both the events are celebrated with great enthusiasm and are considered vital to the marriage. On this occasion people invite their near and dear ones as well as other important personalities of the society to bless the newly wed couple. The hosts organize a part and feast and also extend their gratitude to the guests that they have taken time out of their hectic schedule and have come to bless the couple.

Even scroll invitations are becoming very popular. They are traditionally known as Farman. A wedding invite featuring gorgeous calligraphy of Bismillah is also extremely popular since it means- ‘beginning with the name of Allah’. This calligraphy enhances the religious value of Muslim Wedding Cards and also imbibes a religious sanctity to the invitation.

It is no exaggeration to say that now days wedding invites are more like a glimpse of a personality of Bride & Groom, their social status & the lavishness of a wedding event. That is indeed one of the main reasons why Muslim people are more conscious than ever regarding choosing a wedding invite.
