The Wedding Thank Yous

Sumita and Chris chose the Rustic Retreat  design but didn’t let the name fool them for personalizing their wedding Thank Yous. The front side boasts one beautiful, large photo while a collage depicts their big day on the inside. Stunning! Sumita had this to say about the stationery designs they chose, “The designs we chose highlighted the theme we wanted and displayed the pictures well. The designs fit perfectly with our wedding style. And it was so great that there were so many designs and themes to choose from.”

Avant Planners
We had the greatest wedding planner, Purvi Shah from Avant Planners. Our day went SO smoothly thanks to her help. She was 100% calm and professional the entire day.

Vivah Decorations
Our florist was also exceptional. Sheetal Patel really made the event look like Modern Indian Elegance.

MagnetStreet Weddings

The Magnet Street website is the BEST. It is so user friendly. The best part is that we were able to make 100% personalized stationary using our colors and our pictures. The proofs were very accurate. I didn’t get a surprise when our stationary arrived. It looked exactly like the proof.
