Novel ideas for wed­ding in­vites

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - ADITI CAROLI

When Sha­did Kapoor and Mira Ra­jput sent out their wed­ding in­vite, it wasn’t just the de­sign that caught ev­ery­one’s eyes. The in­vite was paired with ex­otic tea and honey in­stead of the reg­u­lar mithai ka dabba. Celebrity wed­ding card de­signer Rav­ish Kapoor, the brain be­hind the in­vite, says that the cou­ple wanted it to be unique yet un­der­stated. “They didn’t want sweets to go with it. So, we sug­gested tea and honey from the Hi­malayas,” he says. And it’s not just Shahid and Mira who were look­ing for un­pre­dictabil­ity. The city-based de­signer says that now peo­ple pick up the most ex­quis­ite ac­com­pa­ni­ments to go with in­vites for that un­for­get­table first im­pres­sion. “Peo­ple want keep­sakes, so that the wed­ding is re­mem­bered long af­ter the func­tions are over. Or­nate Gane­sha idols, luxe wooden boxes, cus­tomised choco­lates, Ja­panese wafers, pre­served man­goes and honey and in­cense top the list,” says Kapoor, whose clients in­clude ac­tors Hrithik Roshan, Shilpa Shetty and Karisma Kapoor, among oth­ers. Kapoor tells us that celebs are per­son­ally in­volved in the de­sign­ing process. “Shahid paid at­ten­tion to ev­ery lit­tle de­tail. There is a touch of gold on the pea­cock logo. This was his idea,” shares Kapoor. He adds that the trend of such in­vites is here to stay, as ex­clu­siv­ity tops ev­ery­one’s wish­list. “You need to of­fer unique­ness to clients, so we keep com­ing up with novel ideas for all oc­ca­sions,” he says.

Peo­ple want some­thing unique. We keep push­ing the en­ve­lope to come up with new ideas
