Wedding invites for 2017 Studio 13

Wedding invites for 2017 Studio 13

The moment you warily open the envelope and slide the card out anticipating who’s celebrating what; you’re then visually treated to an interesting combination of colours that are either soothing or razzmatazz. You feel the paper running your fingers and flip to the other side. By now you have already envisioned what kind of an event it would be. That’s the role of wedding cards; they represent a couple, their family, their taste, what the occasion has in store for the guests and the vibe the couple wishes to create for their happy times ahead.

Being a fashion blogger primarily, when graphic designer and illustrator Neha Jhunjhunwala asked us to tell her story we were quite bemused. Here we didn’t have an outfit to style or as a food blogger we didn’t have anything to taste. So BlabberCat selected her favourite 7 designs from Studio 13, and represented each card’s key element in and around each frame. Besides offering unique, tailor made concepts and design solutions Studio 13 specialises in customised-crockery, a rager fad as a part of invitations and gifts.

1. Anand Karaj

The Gurudwara wedding, a blissful union, is almost meditative in nature. Held in the early hours of the day, it’s a sacred, quite ceremony. Pastel and powdered shades in the family of pink is recommended. On the card, the tiny floral embellishments add a layer of shine subtly with a silver finishing. The inside card is in mint green adding a vintage winter break to the pink.

 

2. Summer wedding

Summers denote a new beginning and a new life just like the bloom of a flower. A reflection of your marriage, your wedding invite should arrive with joy and spread the celebratory feel wherever it goes. A heady mood should linger as the event aftertaste. Studio 13 is known for their innovative mix of colours and to break the cliche floral, we suggest this design in darker colour backgrounds for the inside cards.

 

3. Motifs of the land of desert

The full circle is revealed only once the envelope is opened, resembling a rangoli, and an elephant in the same finish on the cards inside. The traditional colour palate can be changed into something more mellow but keeping the occasion in mind, this range of vibrancy always leave the desired impact and looks like a true blue… erm, red Rajasthani/Gujarati wedding card.

 

4. The sacred flower

The Lotus has always been of great significance in our mythology and tradition being a sacred flower. For those who want a traditional element but a completely new look, this one is trending big. Weddings, anniversaries and even milestone birthday parties. It’s one of the most versatile cards and we specially love the fact that it’s not an expected pink and white combination.

 

5. Morni

Peacocks remind one of dance, rain, celebration, happiness, culture, nature, and the beauty of God’s miraculous creations. A palate of rich colours, highly recommended for Teej, Sindhara and Indian destination weddings. Studio 13 provides a more solid colour envelope, to balance the colours inside, which can be vibrant or pastel.

 

6. Razzle-dazzle with ze tassel

Silver milestone should be romantically announced with a gush of silver dust. A classic silver flower laser cut design looks grans in a non-chaotic way. The USB being the silver tassel hanging from the bottom. There’s an old school charm in a contemporary avatar accompanied a lot of glamour. Best recommended for all 25th milestone celebrations.

 

7. Champagne kiss

Saving the best for the last. BlabberCat’s favourite is the kiss of champagne. Golden memories we take from the occasion and to best represent a classy and royal affair, opt for this laser cut gold motif work design. We recommend this for a contemporary and elegant wedding invite that adds splendour or golden milestone in birthdays and anniversaries. It caters to beach and palace weddings because of the cooler tone and floral pattern neutrality. This card simply looks like good news.
