Gone are the days when only close family and friends were only invited to be a part of an Indian wedding. Today, every kith and kin, friends of friends, and even business colleagues are invited. In the olden days, the patri or the nyota were sent as scrolls to invite guests. They were made on the banana leaves or a cloth.
Today, the invites have gone beyond a mere scroll; they give a glimpse of the wedding and other celebrations. They do the expectation-setting of the guests as to what kind of an arrangement and opulence they’ll get at the wedding. A plethora of options are available these days, from a simple scroll with a couplet to magnificent multi-paged cards.
