Multi-Cultural/Fusion Wedding Etiquette
Be a Good Guest

Are you planning on attending a Multicultural/Fusion wedding? If so, we have some tips to help you be the perfect wedding guest!

Multicultural Indian weddings  usually include two ceremonies, here are a few dos and don’ts.

  • Never wear black or white, unless otherwise noted, as they represent mourning.
  • Be colorful but conservative. No plunging necklines or open shoulders.
  • Carry along a scarf or handkerchief, as it may be customary to cover your head during the ceremony.

Mazel tov! Attending a Jewish fusion wedding?

  • Dress moderately, avoid sleeveless, open back, or short dresses.
  • Ladies, be careful wearing white. Leave that for the blushing bride.
  • Try to stick to monetary gifts or items that can be easily returned.

Chinese a go go!

  • Avoid wearing red.  This is a color that is sacred and for the bride.
  • When giving gifts, make sure that what your giving is not considered unlucky.
  • Always remember to thank the bride and groom for allowing you to share in their joyous celebration.

If your planning on attending a fusion wedding, have fun, enjoy yourself, and remember…stay classy!

After Twenty-Five Years Together — Oak Tree Foil Invitation

Last summer we printed our Oak Tree design beautifully with silver foil stamp for Michael and Douglas, who are now married after twenty-five years together! We loved the elegant way that the silver foil popped off of the dark gray textured paper.

The oak tree conveys the strength and stability of a good marriage–and the importance of strong roots and community.
