Is it acceptable to have a unique wedding invitation even if you are planning a traditional wedding? Absolutely. While some people like to coordinate their invitations with the style of their wedding, it is not strictly necessary. If you have a fun or different idea for your wedding invitations, then, by all means, choose the invitation that you want. If you plan on celebrating with a formal ceremony, make sure to mention that on the invitation, such as "black tie requested". On the other hand, if the wedding invitation is off_beat people may assume that your wedding will be a more casual affair unless you specifically state otherwise. Putting the information on the wedding invitation prevents any confusion.
A mistake on the address or other pertinent information can require expensive reprints. Do not order an invitation that does not match the style of the wedding or that gives the wrong impression. The number of invitations you send will depend on the number of guests that are being invited. Make a list of all the people both the bride and groom want to invite. Break the numbers down into single people and couples or families. Each group of people being invited should only be sent one invitation.
