The most innovative of all is recycled wood peel boxes and scrolls. -Seeded Recycled Paper: Plant it in the ground and see your invite grow into a tree There is a new trend of seeded recycled paper invitations where the paper is embedded with seeds. Read the invitation, plant it in the ground and water it. Flowers will grow :) Can anything be better than this?? This trend is gaining popularity in India now as well and you should press your invitation designer to ask if he could use seeded paper. - Using Banana Leafs: If you are having a south Indian wedding, or atleast if one of the sides is from South India then having a banana lead wrapped wedding invite is such a nice idea. These might be difficult to procure, and the leaf does have a shelf life, but if you could manage it, these look lovely! - Wood carved invitations: How rustic and earthy do these look? So unique and you could tell your invitation designer to make these in the form of photoframes so people can add photos inside it later. - Handmade Paper Invitations These are a dime a dozen in every city in India.
