My Opinions About Wedding Cards I Receive Here

A simple wedding card with a auspicious silver or golden line will do for me.They are mostly so detailed and flashy. What is there to proclaim? Weddings are not exhibitions.

My view is not cynical, it is about keeping with the perspective.

Simple invitation cards are best.Just an auspicious golden or a silver line would do for me.

A wedding card lies out there on the table, unread. It is in the form of a booklet: the reception is going to be held at various places and venues: hence the elaboration.

Weddings have become an exhibition everywhere; people are stressed out and are looking for ways of releasing themselves. Invitation cards thus have to proclaim, if not flaunt the event loud and clear. But what if the party happens to fall short of the expectations generated by the card?

Some cards come in scrolls with gold dust sprinkled on them; to be sprinkled on you no sooner you try to unroll it. Before long you begin looking like a member of the Inca clan with gold dust blown all over your face. These scrolls are accompanied with a box of sweets in addition—not bad though.

According to me, wedding invitation cards are only a prelude to the event and not a leaf out of the event. It cannot be akin to an invitation card for a fete or a jam session wherein you have to draw the audience. Here I am supposed to humbly solicit your presence; I should not forget I am the host, as we know a host is supposed to keep a low profile.

There is a dividing line between a greetings card and a card on the context of a personal celebration. A greeting card has no restrictions. Provided the hint of flaunting the event is eliminated a wedding card too may be artistic, formal, personalized whatever. The commercial and flashy ones that I receive so often are cliché to me.

The cards are supposed to travel from the table to the bin, but I feel sorry to throw away the good quality paper with which these cards are made of. Hence they spend a few more days with me, to be discarded at a later date.

Finally, an email card should do, for those who could afford a computer. After all, paper is nothing but an example of a flattened forest.

I have to agree with you, I too see no point in doing all that, for some thing a person will just throw away.
Thank you for sharing.:)

If you're anything like me, I keep everything...I guess you could say I'm a bit of a pack rat who keeps everything from my son's school papers to family treasures.
