Your wedding invitations are one of the most important aspects of your special day. The invitation is responsible for letting your guests know the place, time and direction of your wedding ceremony and reception. Additionally, it sets the expectations of your guests, creates the mood, and gives your guests the first impression of what your wedding will be like.
Many times, traditional afternoon weddings, followed by evening dinners and receptions do well with the classic wedding invitation. However, weddings that are in the morning, with afternoon receptions, or weddings that are in the early evening with late night receptions are ceremonies that might benefit from a different type of wedding invitation. You have to use your best judgment and ask yourself if a traditional wedding invitation is really the best style for your ceremony.
