This Is Us

Sakina & Rashida Fida Ali

The Fida Ali sisters have always shown great passion and unflinching commitment towards 

eating. Don't let the pile of books in front of them fool you. They are probably stuffing their 

faces behind it.

When she isn't eating, Sakina can be found in the kitchen, cooking. She believes in making her 

friends fatter in order to stay thinner. She has completed her bachelor's in architecture and is 

the older of the two.

When Rashida isn't busy making up excuses to bunk college, she is surrounded by friends who 

commission her to take their Facebook display pictures. She is a qualified physiotherapist.

While Sakina is more meticulous with an eye for detail, Rashida is free spirited and "artsy 

fartsy", a perfect balance of sorts. They are both passionate about travelling; while Sakina 

dreams of visiting every museum in the world, Rashida dreams of photographing the world 

(while making sure to stuff themselves at every restaurant on the way, of course!).

When they aren't fighting over the last piece of cake or each other's clothes, the sister duo 

make a pretty good albeit loud team who believe that innovation and understanding the 

client’s needs is the key to success.

What They Said

 

"The dynamic sister duo running Pretty Gilded are one of the most easy going, approachable and professional 'Wedding related preparation' people I came across. I don't need to tell prospective brides to be, what a relief and God sent fortune it is during the madness leading up to the wedding. My cards have been appreciated by everyone for their Unique and Dainty design. Rashida and Sakina also offer the most reasonable and pocket friendly deals on the block. I had an amazing experience with Pretty Gilded and I wish them continued success. Thank you Girls. You rock "

- TUHINA KALRA, new delhi

 

"Sakina has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Ever patient, she always responds quickly and becomes invested in your wedding. She not only saw our vision through but worked constantly to improve on it and give us something better than we had imagined. The end result was a gorgeous suite that was on theme and makes us very happy to look at everyday. she worked with us mostly through whatsapp which allowed for detailed feedback and minimum interference in our work schedules. Highly recommended!"

"I can't thank Pretty Gilded enough for the exquisitely beautiful wedding card they designed for me! When I first met Rashida and saw her designs I knew there's no one else who could do the job better than them! Her ideas and designs just aligned so well with mine! I thank you guys for taking up my design idea and making it better than what I'd imagined it to be! Most of all I'm blown away by the time Rashida gave me to understand what I wanted and for giving me the right professional advice on the design. I had my own doubts about the colours used at the final stages of the designing but once the card got delivered and Rashida asked me to take a look, I was pleasantly surprised! The gold lettering was so different, so elegant and stylish and the colours so perfect for a spring/summer wedding! Also, loved the fact that she kept asking for my feedback and suggestions at every stage of the design process which made me feel more involved with my own wedding card! It was wonderful to receive the cards so fast and so perfectly finished and it was a pleasure to receive such amazing and friendly service! Moreover, everyone just loved the card and I still can't get over it!! I'm so happy I ordered my card from you! All the best for the future and I hope you make it real big! You guys deserve it!"

"I used pretty gilded to design my wedding invitations a month ago and my experience was incredible. I found out about this company through Instagram and never met them in person as I was unable to go to India for my wedding shopping. I was a little skeptical to use someone to make my invitations who I had never met in person as I live in NY but I can't express how great they were. We communicated with Sakina over whatsapp and email and my experience was amazing the whole way through. She sent me multiple drafts of the invitation prior to printing. She was extremely professional and available to answer any questions at any time. Most importantly, she worked quickly and shipped my invites out earlier than the planned deadline. We were SO happy with the design and paper quality. We literally got hundreds of compliments on them and couldn't have been happier. It was a pleasure working with her and we would use her again anytime. HIGHLY recommend!!"

"I wanted a modern and westernized invite for my wedding, something a tad bit different from all the invites I come across, so I started looking at wedmegood for options and came across Pretty Gilded's floral pink and mint card, which at first sight, appealed to me and in no time, I contacted Sakina to get them for my wedding. Sakina was extremely easy to work with, gave honest suggestions and was very very helpful in making numerous changes to the card until I was satisfied. I agree with other reviewers in the sense that she works on your wedding card like she would work on her own. My card in fact went through a complete makeover! She also helped with my gorgeous hotel itineraries that complimented the card. Sakina followed through the whole delivery process until the cards arrived at my doorstep in Hong Kong. I'm extremely happy with the way the card has turned out and am receiving endless compliments! I have no hesitations recommending Pretty Gilded to all of you!"

- Rashmi Tourani, hong kong

"Planning a wedding can be an incredibly stressful period and working with people who are flexible, hard working, responsive, creative, patient and proactive makes everything a million times easier. That was what it was like working with Sakina! The quality of the stationery was high and value for money and they were proactive in making me stay on schedule to have everything ready in time for the big day! Our guests really loved our programmes, and many took them home, which was the aim! Would certainly recommend them or consider using them in the future."

"Thank you Rashida and Sakina for creating our wedding card. I was on the lookout for something fresh, minimalistic and different. I found Pretty Gilded online and couldn't think of anyone better to help us design our cards. Thank you for your patience, ideas and cooperation throughout the entire process. Not to mention, Rashida you were always available on Whatsapp and email - it was so easy to work with you ladies. Thank you once again and wishing you all the success in the future."

"The wonderful ladies at Pretty Gilded have been hands down, my favorite vendors to deal with for our wedding. They are exceedingly patient, have excellent ideas, and were open to the most granular changes and suggestions we proposed. When we started off, our primary concern was that we had no idea as to what we wanted, we just knew what themes we were going with, but no clarity or visualization at all. Pretty Gilded was fantastic at translating our many, mostly disconnected, sometimes conflicting briefs. If you, like us, just know the vibe you're looking for, but have zero clue as to how you want the card to look, you'd be in safe hands with Pretty Gilded. In a wedding we thought was pretty fantastic, the number of compliments we received specifically on our cards is overwhelming, and we can't thank Pretty Gilded enough for working with us.

Also, now that we have paid them, I am comfortable revealing that their prices are ridiculously low, and they're selling themselves short for the moment, so if cost is a factor, I think you can't get better quality work at such economic pricing."

"Sakina and Rashida were an absolute pleasure and breeze to work with. The entire process from start to finish was done via email and phone as I live in America. Both of them were very responsive and patient as we made multiple changes along the way. The end result was beautiful and people have told me my invitations were among the most unique they've seen. I wanted one to have a Moroccan theme and Rashida was able to work her magic and delivered exactly what I had in mind. The shipping process to America was easy and we received the invites a few days after they were mailed. 
I would highly recommend them to any individual looking for unique and contemporary invites!"

I would love to tell my experience with these cute sisters... I was on search for a different vintage themed wedding cards as my brothers reception was themed vintage. I remember taking screen shots of pretty Gilded designs sometime back wen I was and search for the cards....I visited so many stores but couldn't find the exact what I wanted...then I remembered the screen shot and immediately called up Sakina.. These girls are so friendly I'm sure with your wedding invites you will find good friends too...they r responsible...they deliver on time and in whole of Hyderabad everyone was asking me where did you get them.... Such a different approach towards the wedding cards....I had many ideas too but to implement them you will need this vendor....I'm.glad I chose them....its totally economical too.....too make your wedding a bit more different and special and too add up a new friend for your list. Plz choose them :)

Pretty Gilded was one of the best things that happened to our wedding. We needed a small number special cards in short notice for hand delivery to our closest friends and family. Sakina did an exceptional job handling all our requests over mail and was successful in delivering one of the most beautiful set of cards I've ever seen within two weeks of first contacting her. She knew exactly what we expected from the cards and when we first got the cards, it looked better than we could have ever imagined it. It was clearly the best decision we made to hire PrettyGilded. Thank you guys.
