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.
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.
