The reason why this trend is a hit among the couples is that it allows them to give their guests something that they will cherish forever. Mostly, it is the packaging of the wedding invite that can be reused even after the wedding is over.

Ashna Nayyar elaborates the thought process that goes behind creating such invites:

“Many clients these days ask for boxes that are reusable. So we have come up with a variety of wooden tea boxes, vintage handmade baskets and briefcases to cater to the needs of our clients. Most importantly, we make sure that the needs and preferences of every client are personally taken care of and each product is to their satisfaction.”

She gives details of one such wedding invite she created for a client:

“A lot of thought process goes into manufacturing products that suit the client’s personality because of which each product has its own identity. So recently a couple came to us that had a refined taste and wanted something sophisticated to be retained by their guests from the invite. So we created this elegant box with smooth finish at the edges and just a slight hint of gold in it. The cards inside too were in earthy tones keeping in mind the preference of the couple.”

Puneet Gupta designed the wedding invite for comedy queen, Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa, based on this concept only and he shares the whole idea behind it:

“Lingering on the idea of utility-based invites, we designed a nautical theme based invitation for Bharti and Haarsh’s wedding. From the wedding logo to the 3D pop-ups, every element is a reflection of their wedding destination. The invite beautiful blends three varied elements together- couple’s pre wedding shoot, 3D pop ups and a reusable rustic box. As the destination wedding happened in Goa, a wine bottle and a chunk of Kaju was sent along with it. To give a rustic feel, the wooden box was handpainted with utmost intricacy and detailing. The beach theme was further highlighted with the use of sea-shells, beach net and a classic water tube.”

Arushi, Invitations by Arushi, says:  

“There are numerous conventional things that are making a comeback this year and this colour combination is one of those. A refreshing change you will find in this trend though is in the complexity of the design. While earlier the invites used to plain ivory card with a small print in gold at one corner, you can totally expect to see dense gold prints on ivory base this year.”
