You know how when someone says 'Indian wedding invite', there's just one image that pops into your head? Yes, it's the same simple/complex paper cards with something religious on top and then you open it to find one or multiple sheets inside which have the date, time, venue, maybe a map, the couple's name, parent's name and sometimes, a gazillion other names! Well, wedding invites have come a long way since then, and things seem to be slowly changing to make the invites simpler, more practical and functional!
Here are the top trends in wedding invites which are bound to give you some inspiration if you're looking to do things in a fresh new way rather than the traditional way cards have been done in our weddings!

You know how you can get attracted to a handbag if the lining inside is very cute and interesting? That's the same concept with an envelope liner, which makes the envelope look more beautiful once it is opened! After all, it is going to be the first thing your guests will see when they open the envelope, so how about you make it more interesting and prettier?
Laser Cut Paper Invites
These basically have paper which has been cut in a way to make it look like lace or metal! You can have the classic white or ivory look or get it done in an interesting colour!
Cards within a Card
Invite by Customizing Creativity
Mini cards inside a big one, instead of having multiple leaflets is a surefire new trend that is here to stay.

If you are the types who loves organised things, then you're gonna love this one! These include separate cards which are arranged inside the main invite like your cards in the wallet, which are super functional in case of a destination wedding, as cards can be earmarked and pulled out according to choice, which makes it super functional and neat!
