Custom Bilingual Wedding Programs

If you are hosting a multicultural wedding, a great way to insure that all of your guests feel a part of the celebration, is by providing them with bilingual wedding programs. This is a fantastic option if your ceremony incorporates traditions from both of your cultures, as some traditions may not be familiar to all in attendance.

While designing your bilingual wedding programs, you can also choose to add one or more of our customization options. For no additional charge, you can incorporate any of our gallery motifs, choose to include religious symbols from our extensive list, pick your perfect fonts, and select inks that fit the feel and theme of your ceremony.

Modern Indian Color Palette – Coral and Navy

Traditionally, Indian weddings are known for their bright and bold color palettes. However, a new trend in Indian weddings is changing that. Coral and navy are quickly becoming a popular alternative to the fuchsia, teal, jade and red that have for so long been associated with these extravagant, multi-day events.

This slightly-muted color combination speaks both to masculine and the feminine sensibilities. The dark and powerful blue contrasts beautifully against the soft, blush undertones of the coral. For those opting for a more ornate and opulent look, you can easily mix in gold to add a level of warmth and shimmer to your wedding day.

The Hottest Wedding Dress Trends of 2015

Are you on trend?

With 2015 now half over, we are starting to see a clear trend in bridal fashion. Brides are getting bolder with their dress selections, opting for modern twists on classic designs. Below are five of the top dress trends of this year. Whether you are looking for a dress that’s sexy and sleek, bold and edgy, romantic and timeless, or glitzy and glamorous, you’re sure to find a style that’s perfect for you.

Off the Shoulder

Every year designers put new and modern twists on otherwise timeless looks. This is one of them. The off-the-shoulder wedding dress has been popular for decades, but by paring it with low-cut backs, unexpected fabrics and bling, they are giving this classic look a breath of fresh air.

I love this off-the-shoulder wedding dress. The low back adds a sexy feel to this stunning lace dress.

19th century tile motif letterpress invitation

Roco is a stunning yet simple 19th century tile design and it perfectly mimics the neckline of these of-the-shoulder dresses.


No wedding dress design is more regal than a high collar. From Grace Kelly to Kate Middleton, this elegant and feminine look is truly timeless. Though this look has always been popular, designers such as Marchesa and Naeem Khan are continuing to add new twists to this modest look.

Chantilly lace was very popular with members of French Royalty, making this motif perfect for your regal wedding.

Tulle Skirts

If you are looking for a light and airy option for your big day, this trend is perfect for you. The tulle skirt continues to gain in popularity. Its sheer quality is perfect if your looking for an edgy and sexy design. At the same time, this lightweight fabric can be layered on to give you that “ball gown look” without wearing 60 lbs of satin down the aisle.

This sheer wedding dress isn’t for everyone. But the high slits in the tulle skirt and the beaded illusion neckline is perfect for an adventurous bride.

Unusual Colors

If you are truly looking for a modern and edgy look for your big day, the colored wedding dress is the trend for you. Whether you opt for a soft blush, or a bold red, the options for colored wedding dresses seem to increase every year. Designers such as Monique Lhuillier, Hayley Paige and Kelly Faetanini all debuted colored dresses on this year’s runway.

Gatsby Inspired

This is a trend that has definitely been influenced by Hollywood. These 20’s inspired looks began their rais in popularity with the May 2013 release of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby. This is a glamorous trend that appears to have staying power.
