Simran Monga is a graphic designer who stumbled upon decorating wedding cards while she was brainstorming for her sister marriage invitation ideas. For her sister’s wedding invitation, she designed the box in such a way that once the box was empty, it could be put upside down and used for a Ludo game. This is a perfect way to design a keepsake wedding box. Such an interesting keepsake would become the talk of the town because the guests would be amused.
Put on your thinking hats and start brainstorming on how would you like to design your sister's marriage invitation - scrabble, UNO or snakes and ladders; so many options to pick from! Pick something that you and your sister used to play a lot back when you were kids to make it more personalised.

Creating Save The Date videos has become a raging trend. The bride and groom either hire a photographer or a wedding videographer for their pre-wedding photoshoot and then some of these images/footage can be cropped or spliced to create a video, for the WhatsApp wedding invite. This could solve two purposes with one resource for your set of sister marriage invitation copies!
Another offbeat idea would be to make a video consisting of random old photos of your sister and her groom (their baby images, photos of their teenage years) and creating a hilarious video invite. You'd be the perfect (Read: Typical), sibling if you happen to pick this!
If you want to save the environment and wish to go digital, you can always design a website for your sister’s wedding. And you don’t need to worry about spending a bomb on getting the website designed. Investing in a wedding website will turn out to be a good return as your sister will be easily able to track her guest list on it through the RSVP feature. All of the wedding photos can also be easily shared through one single platform. You can even install a countdown timer to show the number of days left to the wedding to make the website look more interesting.
Many wedding platforms give the option to build your own wedding website. You have the option to choose from the pre-existing gorgeous templates. You can personalise it according to your wish. Once your sister’s wedding is over, you will always have this website to relive these moments.
You can also get a caricature of your sister and her groom made into an e-invite. This could be an interesting way to add some twist to your sister’s marriage invitation. This could be sent as an invite or a friendly reminder to all your near and dear ones.
Pulling her leg will never cease to be fun, so why not employ a caricature or two in your sister marriage invitation. Add as many fun elements as possible to make it hilarious!

Adding souvenirs into your sister marriage invitation ideas is a great thought. If you want your friends and family to remember your sister’s wedding even after it’s over, then add some exciting keepsakes. You could add glass jars and fill them with interesting snacks (like nuts or dates) or you could design the wedding invite in the shape of a retro matchbox.
Another interesting idea would be to add a small photo frame with the couple's wedding hashtag imprinted on it along with the invite. Make sure it is not of glass but some other material that can withstand small shocks of mishandling.
Another quirky sister marriage invitation idea is to gift your friends a set of playing cards. One side could have the wedding details like the couple's photo or a caricature of the couple with the date of the wedding and the other side could be the playing card symbols.
This idea can work well if you and your sister love playing cards or your sister is getting married around the Diwali season. The guests can easily use the deck of cards during game nights and play Teen Patti!
Cool shapes, concepts and sizes
Building on the idea of unique tokens that go along with your sister marriage invitation cards, consider a theme-based set of invites, shaped in a unique way. For example - This jet-setting couple had opted for an airline boarding pass and luggage tags as the idea for their wedding invitations. While the main card was a boarding pass that brought their guests on for the experience, the tags marked which events they were specifically invited to.
Try this idea especially with your Didi's besties, when you strive to invite them for a bachelorette party. You could also extend the thematic to meld into any spinster party ideas you may have.
