And engagement invitation cards take the centre stage for being the first official announcement of your impending nuptials. A little window of sorts to the wonderful celebrations that lie just ahead.

Do you know The Origin Of The Engagement Ceremony?

The origins of wedding engagement began with the Jewish law, where the wedding consisted of two separate acts, called the Kiddushin (sanctification) vis-a-vis the betrothal, and the Chupah which is the actual wedding. TheKiddushin changes the couple’s interpersonal status, while Chupah is the legal change of status as man and wife.

This idea was later adopted by the Greeks as the Gamos and Engeysis ceromonies, with swearing the oath of marriage intent and the exchange of rings also being a borrowed phenomenon which later gained global acceptance and popularity.

Whether you are looking for something quirky, funny, traditional or something that bears a stamp as unique as yourself, our top 10 list has something for every couple.
