There are more than thirty million people worldwide who practice the Sikh faith. Sikhism is a monotheistic faith that believes in giving and receiving of love in order to create a peaceful and successful life. Marriage is an integral part of Sikhism as it propagates the making of the family.
In the Sikh faith, the marriage ceremony is referred to as ‘Anand Karaj’. It is considered a divine union that brings the couple closer to celestial love. A typical Sikh wedding celebration lasts for several days, that includes a formal engagement, mehndi ceremony and finally ending in the actual marriage ceremony and reception. Since this is such a grand affair, it only makes sense that Sikh wedding cards are designed to reflect these splendid cultural practices.
Listed below, are a few ways in which you can personalize your Sikh wedding cards:
• Include religious verses from the holy book Guru Granth Sahib. These verses reflect the couple’s inclination towards tradition and culture.
• Incorporate symbols which are reminiscent of the Sikh faith such as the Guru Granth Sahib, Anand Karaj symbol, etc. It reflects the importance of religion in the union and also blesses the couple in holy matrimony.
• Sikh weddings are all about pomp and circumstances, so select a wedding invite style that mirrors these celebrations. Scroll and box scroll wedding invites are perfect for Sikh marriages.
• Include embellishments such as stones, zari, filigree, tassels, etc. to add a personal touch to your wedding card.
• You can create a wedding theme based on your marriage card, i.e. an entire wedding invitation suite that includes gift bags, table cards, menu cards, thank you cards, placement cards, etc.
Wedding cards are the first official announcement to all your friends, family and community members about your union in marriage. You can use your invitation to convey the importance of your faith through plenty of design and style options while adding your very own personal touch.
