In addition, after the wedding is over, and your guests have gone home, they can save your unique invitations to remind them of the day. Your close family and friends should appreciate having another special reminder, particularly one that evokes memories not only of the wedding, but also of the happy couple. Distant relatives and friends are also more likely to keep your unique wedding invitation, as most people are reluctant to throw away anything unusual or special, so your invitation is sure to be saved.
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.
