Wedding Save the Date ~ Post Card Save the Date ~ Caricature Save the Dates

Our clients who are Indian and American chose these really fun personalized caricature Save the Dates! This is a postcard Save the Date as well as very whimsy, colorful and fun! Our bride and groom also chose to have the same design on their Wedding Invitation.

Personalized Caricature Postcard Save the dates

Our bride contacted us via email and asked to create a fun caricature version of herself and the groom from an idea she had on Pinterest. Above is the Save the Date we created for them. Our couple also chose to use the same idea and image for their Wedding Invitation except with a slight color variation of the background. The result is a very cute Indian Bride and a handsome blue eyed American Groom! Congrats to Anjali & Keith for their upcoming August wedding taking place in San Geronimo, California.

The price for the above Postcard Save the Date cards for quantity of 50 is $175.00, double side printed no envelopes. There is also a design charge for us to personalize the image. Please call for custom quotes.

It was a great Wedding Show at the Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco a couple of Sundays ago. Not only are they right down the street from my store at the Embarcadero Center but the coordinators and the eclectic crowd of journalists, editors, photographers and caterers were inspired. Having been in the invitations business for 25 years now I go to a lot of industry events, and this one really was special. They had a roulette table for the groom-to-bees, a fuzz ball set up, photo shoot booth and rooms with a theme for vendors presenting their services, not to mention the wonderful engaged couples that attended the affaire.

Here are some photos from the show:

Soon the brides and grooms were streaming through the doors and Champagne was flowing from Morenobhlv, chocolates adorned the tables and there was cake samples being passed out! Soon, Eva and I took our seats at the Bridal Galleria Fashion Show, which took place right outside the venue in a tent. There was a water fountain right outside the window, an over-sized crystal chandelier, music and chairs were lined up around the runway just like high fashion runway show in New York.

After the fashion show we tasted champagne, little peanut and chocolate treats and also stopped by the Nordstrom Bridal Gown area. Overall the show was a hit because there were a lot of smiles and happy couples. It was great to see fellow colleagues and friends like Ran Jan Dey from New Delhi Restaurant and Sacko from Giraux Jewelers. Thank You Wedding Woof for writing about us!

The traditional Indian Family enjoys a lavish Indian Wedding with accompanying stationery for the different festivities. In India, families throw lavish Weddings inviting family from far and near. A typical Indian Wedding would be a three day affair including parties, food, music and religious ceremonies. Recently we attended an Indian Wedding in San Francisco held at Park 55 Hotel with refreshments being served at New Delhi Restaurant. The bride’s father, Ranjan Dey is owner of New Delhi Restaurant in downtown San Francisco where Sarah, Ranjan’s daughter (also a Chef at New Delhi Restaurant) and her fiance Sean were married. You can read more about Sarah’s Wedding on New Delhi Restaurant’s website, or on Maharani Weddings website.

We used Arabella Papers to create Sara’s Beautiful Indian Wedding Invitation. We would recommend Arabella Designs for Indian Weddings, Afghan Weddings, Persian Weddings for Luxury Wedding Invitations.
