Let’s indulge in a little paper eye candy today! This Indian-inspired wedding invitation suite that brings a modern feel to Indian design elements that are a perfect source of inspiration for contemporary South Asian weddings. Tina Tabibi, designer and owner of Tabibi Designs, effortlessly blends peacock and henna-inspired details and bright, bold colors without losing the traditional roots of this Sikh Washington DC-area wedding. Not only do we have photos from Sarah Park to share, but some insight on the design and concept from both designer, Tina and the bride, Monisha, too!
From Tina: The invitation suite attached was designed for Monisha + Kevin Lucier. They reside in Arlington and married in May 2012. I created an Indian-inspired wedding suite for the lovely couple. The invitation is a full color, A7 bi-fold with a custom monogram design on the cover. The interior spread flourished with ornate patterns, the lotus flower and peacocks which symbolize good fortune in the Indian culture. The formal invitation is displayed on the left panel of the interior spread and a list of the weekend festivities on the right. I designed a response postcard for the couple to compliment their unique design. We also included an invitation insert for the Mehndi celebration.
From Monisha: This was the first Indian-American wedding card Tabibi Design created and the final product was beautiful. We asked for ornate and colorful Indian designs to include peacocks, flowers and henna-inspired detail and that’s exactly what we received! We did make a few upgrades along the way and Tina not only kept us aware of any associated cost increases she offered us cheaper alternatives so we could make an informed decision.
Thank you Tina for sharing your beautiful work! If you’re looking for creative and custom wedding invitations, be sure to check out Tabibi Designs.
