It’s the little details that make all the functions of a wedding memorable. And it all begins with the invitation cards – it is, after all, the first representation of your big day. Over the years, invites have increasingly gotten creative – from handmade paper to gold foil embossing to interesting gifts accompanying them. Which gets us to the importance of choosing the right wedding invite designer or design house. One who really understands what you want from your wedding and delivers it via beautiful fonts and impeccable design.
Here are five invitation card makers whose work has been impressing us lately.

Delhi-based design studio Turmeric Ink is headed by Sonal Aggarwal Jolly whose design sensibilities focus on recreating traditional Indian style with a new, modern approach. The studio also has its own high-end quality print shop, which produces beautiful designs in striking colours. If you like gilded edges and a regal touch, then this is the place to go to.
It’s the delicate patterns of Pretty Gilded Designs that we love so much. The Fida Ali sisters, Rashida and Sakina, are at the helm of this design house that is based out of Hyderabad and Chennai. They understand pastels, vintage-inspired motifs, and minimalistic style – all trending in wedding invites at the moment – well. Their work often features florals, so if you are one for that, you’ll love everything Pretty Gilded Designs has to offer.
Those with a penchant for the off-beat will love the work of this design studio. Their delicious invitation cards come with interesting themes like tropical vibes or beach additions or art deco touches. It’s about luxe ideas packaged with new-age whimsical details and in a vibrant colour palette. They also create interesting pairings to go with the invites – like a set of personalised postage stamps with the bride and groom postmark.
For a designer who has worked with a wide range of brands including Dr. Seuss, Blackberry phones, and Di Bella Coffee, Itchha Talreja sure knows how to keep wedding invitations easy and fun. Her beautiful designs easily resonate with modern brides. The designs are all Instagram-savvy and inspired by Talreja’s travels around the world.
For a bride who loves her traditions, look no further than The Wedding Studio by Ohsoboho India. With extensive experience in the wedding invitation space, the studio provides ideas that are offbeat but at the same time not far removed from traditions. Shreya Banerjee and Ratna Desai who head the space try to keep the design fluid with a diverse colour wheel – think dark blue and grey.
Trust new-age design house, Artsy Design Co. to get the millennial requirements right with their playful colourways and interesting botanical, graphic and colour-blocked cards. They are also known for their bespoke bridesmaid cards, innovative stamps, and personalised wax seals for the bride and groom etc.
Not just design, Studio Works looks at the bigger picture when it comes to the packaging of the invitation cards, leading the way with their impressive offerings. Think customised glass curio boxes or bespoke wooden kits. The pretty invites from the design house have beautiful unconventional themes also.
