Mandalas and Mehndi: The New 2015 Letterpress Design- Wamil

Bold, elegant, and traditional

Spring heralds fresh looks and new beginnings for the whole world. Join in this seasonal shift by celebrating your wedding. Wamil is the new Spring 2015 wedding design we are excited to announce and the look is full of cultural influences to make the motif special. Classic mandala designs are used to create a timeless feel for Wamil and the floral details add a charm unique to the spring season.

The original design is brought out by the fun use of details in the envelope lining. An alternative take on the overall look is shown in the repeating patters seen here. An elegant second paper layer allows the delicate colors to pop and get noticed.

If you love a henna look then this invitation is perfect for your wedding. Invitation details are written in a henna-inspired font that ties the whole suite together. Wedding colors for any bride can be used to personalize the look for a unique feel.

Visit us for a free sample of Wamil. This wedding invitation with Indian influences is a treat for everyone. To get a better idea of the beautiful inspirations for this design, visit our Wamil Pinterest board to see the wedding style we love.

Modern Bridal Veil Styles

The wedding veil is a piece of history we can’t give up. While the origins are a bit strange-hiding the bride from evil spirits-the look has remained throughout the years, even after couples outgrew such superstitions. A veil is now an accessory you might not see at every wedding. Like garters, gloves, and matching bridesmaids dresses, the veil is an afterthought not used as frequently in modern weddings as they did in our parents’ day and age.

However, those brides who do love their veils love them well and know that the styles are many. Here are a few looks we’ve chosen to highlight the many veils to match your dress:

From birdcage to cathedral, these veils are only a few of the many styles available to match your bridal looks. Visit our Pinterest pages for more ideas on your big day’s themes, colors, and more! See you there!

The Beautiful Tradition of Kaliras

Wedding jewelry takes on special meaning within different cultures. In some Indian states, kaliras are special pieces work by the bride to represent very important people in her life. The look is one of elegance and beauty and the wedding ceremony is only brightened with the kaliras adorning the lovely bride.

Kaliras are worn around the wrist, often tied to one of the traditional red bangles the bride dons. They hang down, decorated with tiers of small umbrella-shaped pieces and strands of beads or shells. These are traditionally made of gold and hand crafted by a female member of the family. The kaliras are worn to remind the bride of her friends and family she is soon leaving behind for married life. Kaliras and the red bangles from the wedding ceremony are worn for forty days after the big day. During this time, the wife is not allowed to do any housework.

The bride uses the kaliras to honor the unmarried women in her family. The kaliras are shaken over the heads of each single woman for good luck. If a piece falls on one of the women, it means she will be the next to marry.

The look has become very popular all over India, so more and more brides are wearing these unique pieces for their wedding. Here are some of our favorite kaliras looks for a modern fusion wedding:
