A bright, colorful greeting card with wishes for young happiness is perhaps a necessary addition to the gift and flowers. Now wedding cards can be divided according to purpose into two types: greeting cards and envelopes designed for giving money.
An interesting story is the appearance of the first postcards included in the annals of postcards.
So, at the beginning of the XIX century, one English gentleman needed to congratulate all his friends on the holiday, whom, it should be noted, he had a lot. Since he did not manage to do this personally, he asked a friend of the artist to make for him several cards decorated with simple ornaments and drawings. After receiving the order, the gentleman sent the cards to his friends by mail in envelopes, and sold the rest to those who wish on the street.
Nowadays, although the postcard is still used as a form of postal service, it is increasingly being replaced by the Internet, and we give postcards exclusively on holidays.
Greeting cards come in various shapes and sizes, but they are usually larger than usual. Wedding cards are decorated with flowers, wedding rings, figurines of the bride and groom, images of doves - all that we usually associate with a wedding.
There are several types of unusual wedding cards.
Copyright cards are cards made according to your own layout. Do-it-yourself wedding cards are the best cards. To create such a card, you need beautiful paper, paints, ribbons, beads, photographs of young people, feathers, guipure shreds, felt-tip pens, natural or artificial flowers, and, of course, your imagination. In this case, you can say that your congratulation was unique and inimitable.
“Singing” or “talking” cards are another type of wedding card. Having opened such a congratulation, you will not only read warm words and wishes for your happiness, but also listen to beautiful music (for example, Mendelssohn's waltz). Some cards may even “pronounce” wedding greetings to young spouses.
Floral cards - cards made from fresh flowers - are also very relevant. A similar card can replace a traditional wedding bouquet and please the bride and groom.
