Sheebani + Devin’s The Darjeeling Limited-Inspired Wedding Invitations

These screen printed wedding invitations from Reshma of Marigold Paper are so bright and fun – and with a color palette inspired by The Darjeeling Limited! Reshma combined illustrations inspired by traditional Indian wood block stamps with modern typography for this festive fusion wedding. Love!


From Reshma: This wedding invitation suite was designed for my friend, Sheebani Patel, and her then-soon-to-be husband, Devin Sikes. The theme and color palette (red, blue, orange, green and yellow) for their wedding was the film The Darjeeling Limited by Wes Anderson. With this being a fusion wedding, the invitation needed to blend the design sensibilities of India and America. This was achieved with three custom illustrations of a paisley, elephant and a sunflower (the groom is originally from Kansas), which were inspired by traditional Indian wood block stamps.


These illustrations were then combined with modern typography and bold colors and used on the event invitation and RSVP cards. All the pieces were then housed in a sleeve, which was placed in a red mailing envelope with recipient address labels.


Each piece of this suite was screen printed on Colorplan paper by Mama’s Sauce. The event cards were screen printed in 1-color on the front and back, and the RSVP card is screen printed in 1-color on the front. The blue sleeve was custom die cut and 1-color screen printed with an illustrated border, the names of the couple, location and date of the wedding. The RSVP envelope and mailing envelope were also screen printed in 1-color.






Thanks Reshma!
