I am hosting a Casino Night as an event leading up to my brother's wedding. All of the other wedding events have a very formal Indian-style invitation, and, I'm looking to diverge from that style for this event.
I want the style of the invitation to be an over-the-top design, focusing on the casino aspect of the party. Also, it should be prominent that I am hosting the event. One idea I had was to have a Craps table with a dealer (dressed in an over-the-top dealer outfit [e.g. Velvet jacket, top hat, etc]) with my picture cropped in (see attachments for pics of me). The goal is to be over the top in a way that is somewhat funny. The invitation should be somewhat club promotion flier-esque. Dice, chips, playing cards, etc are a welcome addition anywhere on the card. Have fun while trying to make the card flashy.
I would like the invitation to fit on a 9x6 postcard.
Mandatory Info that needs to be on postcard:
Casino Night "Sangeet"
Thursday, June 9th, 2011
"Anu Bhaskar presents..." is optional
The more detailed info (e.g. Address) will be put on the other side of the postcard, which I don't wish to have designed at this time, though I may ask to have that done in the future.
