Creating a Flutter with another Giveaway 

Once upon a time, in wedding land; all things weddings from the invitation cards, to outfits, to decor  fit a mould. It was simply because the inspiration out there was limited- a single wedding magazine, a few ads here and there, one specific wedding invitation shop every one went to … you get the point. Then once upon a time became a thing meant only for fairytales. Enter the phase of wedding blogs, pinterest , oodles of wedding magazines, inspiration and ideas coming out of our ears and noses ,but best of all are the independent and young entrepreneurs entering the industry. People who understand what a bride of today needs (and wants), who do things differently and so beautifully! Wedding planners, photographers, make up artists, invitation designers, stylists all have a different meaning in todays wedding day and age. They mean something if not a lot of what your wedding will be like!

That brings me to today’s post .We are having yet another giveaway and this time we are collaborating with the totally cool girls from Create-A-Flutter. They are the super talented duo who make the most beautiful wedding invitation suites and other yummy stationery. We have spoken about them endlessly here  but we hadn’t really met them till a few weeks ago! Together, we came up with so many ideas and can’t wait to make them a reality.To start with ,we decided to have a giveaway when we hit 5000 likes on facebook. That happened when we weren’t looking so this is a slightly delayed post !!! Expect the unexpected.

It really isn’t about the number of followers of fans we have (though we totally love it when we get more and more people who like our page!) , it’s about all of you who enjoy what we do and say and the endless support we get. I can’t count the number of times someone has come to me at the most unexpected place and said,’Are you the Unreal Bride? We LOVE your page!’ . It leaves me speechless.A giveaway is the only way I know how to thank you all for reading our blog, hiring us for all the projects we have been lucky to be a part of and in general just to say we totally love you guys !

Creating a flutter with your wedding cards

I remember back when we started The Unreal Bride, the wedding blog scene or rather the wedding scene online was rather non existent. There was enough content on European or US wedding blogs but hardly any pertaining to the Indian wedding scene. I am happy to say that today it has changed . The seams of the online community are bursting with brand new wedding websites and blogs and photographers and other creatives. Bursting. Very different from two years ago.

Today, we don’t have to look very far for great options related to the wedding industry. Especially the wedding invitation industry which is so over saturated with the same thing, the most important thing being the blingiest and the biggest. I don’t care how many thousands you might’ve spent on your invitation, an ugly card is ugly .Doesn’t matter if its worth two rupees or two thousand rupees. Remember, it’s all about personalisation and the effort you put into it. And , ofcourse the quality matters. So dont think you if you have a great vision, you can get away by spending half the price . Your vision isn’t going to become the reality. It takes real talent to do that.

My favourite invitation from last year has to be the one where I know a lot of effort was put in- both from the bride’s side as well as the card people’s side. I was so excited to open the card when I got it, it almost felt like a present. What lies inside?! Beauty, of course. And colours. And a bird. Totally worth the wait.

This wonderful invitation suite was designed by the girls over at createAflutter  . I can’t remember if we have ever mentioned them before but they are amazingly talented and I am proud to say they work right out of good ol’Chandigarh!

Annnnnd, if the cards weren’t enough , the little bottles of deliciousness that came with them were equally exciting. I love little bottles. I love jam. So obviously I love little bottles of jam! The flavours were totally unique (and alcoholic!) -made by The Gourmet Jar  (based in Noida).

What will this new wedding season bring us? Can’t be as shocking as the UFO I saw last wedding season. Oh yes,I saw a UFO with a groom in it. Why would I lie!?! I hope things are as exciting this season!
