Archives: Season’s Greeting Card (1931)
By the 1840s, Bombay’s ladies had had enough of the tiresome custom of personally inviting female relatives and friends to a wedding in their family, two days before the wedding and again on the morning of the wedding itself!
They decided to send invitation cards to their lady guests instead.
Gentlemen already received letters of invitation. Now households began to receive two sets of invitation cards for the sexes.
And the ladies of the wedding party found themselves less fatigued and with a little more free time to enjoy the festivities.
