Poonam + Nav

If you’ve ever had the fortune of attending an Indian wedding, you’ll know they are HUGE, multi-day events. 400-500 guests is fairly typical which means a lot of stationery required to get the word out.

Poonam and Nav came to me with a pretty tall order – not only did they need invites for several hundred guests, but also for multiple events. We needed to design an invite flexible enough so that each guest would receive the proper assortment of cards.

While the event was traditional, the design was decidedly less so. Poonam envisioned a classic vintage theme with lots of lace and pearls in soft creams, pinks and mint.

The result were individual cards for the Hindu reception, the Sikh ceremony, the main reception and the respective Haldi and Maiyan events. We also customized each reception card with the specific number of guests.

To keep all the pieces together, they were bundled with thin brown ribbon. This is a good alternative to the typical pocket style invitation. It’s more lightweight and adds a different texture and detail to the suite.

The modern but beautiful script along with the cream, slightly textured paper stock really conveyed the look and feel of the wedding.

The lace pattern and soft mint green really matched well with the venue decor and it carried through to the day of pieces such as table numbers and treat signs.

From Poonam:

Cassie and the” I’ll Know It When I See It” team was an absolute pleasure to work with. Cassie paid attention to all the small little details that I wanted to emphasize in my invitations, favors, table numbers, and other stationery. We really worked well together and she valued all my input in a considerate way. Her attention to detail such as paper quality, colors, font, and design added all the special touches expressing us as a couple and of two different cultures uniting. My wedding invitations definitely set the tone for the classical vintage feel I was going for and they were absolutely beautiful.

Thank you Poonam + Nav for choosing us to design your stationery. It was a great experience for us and we’re so thrilled your wedding came together as beautifully as it did.
