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.

Indian weddings are known for their flamboyancies and talk about any wedding including Marwari, Gujrati, Punjabi, Sikh, etc, a wedding always spreads over few days. Every pre-wedding and post wedding function enjoys attention because the success of the wedding event is decided by taking into consideration, the successful completion of all the pre and post wedding related events. Those various pre and post wedding events include wedding cards printing, engagement, haldi ceremony, mehndi, ganesh pujan, sangeet, grahshanti and reception. Among these events, Sangeet ceremony is the one that allows the younger generation to take the full control of the preparations. This ceremony is considered as one of the most exciting ceremonies because the focus from the family of bride and groom shifts towards their near and dear ones.

Due to the same reason, now days, people leave no stone unturned in making a sangeet ceremony, a gala affair. Some specifically mention the detailed program of Mahila Sangeet on the wedding cards. Apart from that, music, entertainment, live DJs and stage shows have begun playing an important role in wedding event and reception, as well. There are some essential ingredients for making the sangeet ceremony, wedding and reception events, more entertaining and more happening. Now let’s have a glance on the importance of all the ingredients, one by one:

Music: It is considered as the soul of the pre and post wedding and also the actual wedding ceremony. Choice of music can simply make or mar the event. Where at one side, selection of appropriate and good songs can create a pleasing ambiance, on other side; selection of inappropriate songs can cause a feeling of discomfort to elders and can ruin a good ambiance. Generally, it is wise to select exclusive songs based on wedding themes. Now days, people prefer to play instrumental music in the background during the dinner time so that the environment doesn’t get noisy.

Wedding Music

Entertainment: All these three ceremonies can be made more interesting by opting for unusual ways of entertaining the guests. For an example, a professional comedian may be hired who can keep up the exciting mood of the guests throughout the event. Before and after every performance, commentary may be added to keep monotony at bay and to enhance the enthusiasm of the performers. Professional singers or live band are fantastic way to make the events more entertaining.

Wedding DJ

Live DJ: Rising demand of professional DJ indicates that popularity of this trend is increasing by leaps and bounds. A professional DJ possesses a good sense of humor and knows the value of right timing. By hiring a DJ, one can bring uniqueness in all three most important ceremonies and when the option of song on request is being given to the guests, they feel more involved.

Dance or stage shows: Earlier, the preparations of sangeet ceremony was restricted to the near and dear ones and the family of the wedding host and due to the lack of professional touch, the event would look somewhat haphazard. The trend of hiring professional dance groups, individual dancers and stage show performers, for all the three events, is really in rage. Professional performances look more appealing, they are undoubtedly more entertaining and they appear more sophisticated.

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.

Vedic Astrology And Marriage Affinity

Hindu Wedding Cards

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.”

Wedding Cards

Wedding Cards

There are innumerable reasons, why Indian marriages are more appealing than other weddings. An Indian Wedding is full of customs, rituals and traditions which are followed by people blindly without even knowing them. Every custom or ritual has its own meaning. Right from wedding invitations to the Bidai ceremony, every custom, every tradition has a meaning of its own. These meanings are derived from our ancestors and the generation today is modifying these traditions according to their own convenience.

There is lot of spice in the customs of Indian wedding. Let us have a look at some of the customs. The first is the wedding invitations. The first wedding card is sent to the Gods and Goddesses summoning them to bless the couple. Mandap which is a decorated canopy supported by four pillars under which bride and groom are made to sit, to perform all the rituals in front of sacred fire. Mandap is decorated with bright and lively colors which signifies the radiance that marriage is going to bring in their life.

Mehendi: A day prior to the wedding, the bride and other female members of the family put heena on their hands, commonly called mehendi with different designs and patterns. The bride gets the best women to put mehandi on her palm, hands and legs and it is the best design of the mehandi that is put on her. The best part about this custom is both the bride and groom write their partner’s name in their hand in hidden manner. They are asked to search their respective names on their partner’s hand and whosoever searches it first is believed to be more dominating. It has been believed since the time the custom of mehndi originated that the darker the color of mehndi in one’s hand the more is the love for you in your partner’s heart.

The baraat is all about dancing as much as you can. In baraat, the dulha or the groom rides on a white lady horse and all the baraati’s i.e all the friends and relatives dance with full energy on the sound of the drum. T Milni, the English meaning of which means merger. Once the baraat reaches at the venue, the bride’s family greets the guests with garlands, flowers and gifts. Then similar way of greeting is done by the groom’s family. There is also a Shoe Hiding Game. When the bride and Groom sit for pheras, they both remove their footwear’s before sitting in the mandap. As per the tradition, the bride’s sisters or friends will hide the shoes of groom and when the pheras are over, groom has to fulfill the demands of them in return for shoes.

All these wedding traditions have a meaning of their own and all these invite participation of both the families and their relatives and friends. With the help of wedding invitation, the bride and the groom’s family invites their guests and thus the wedding becomes a tool of social bonding. Thus, the customs are not just customs but these have an in depth meaning as well.
