When to Go Classic _ There are several situations where a classic wedding invitation is the best choice. If you are very religious, and the biggest factor in your wedding is going to be the traditional, religious aspect of it, you may enjoy having the classic wedding invitation more than you would enjoy having a different, more contemporary wedding invitation. If you are inviting many people who have very traditional values, and you want to make the traditional values into what is most important in your wedding, you may also prefer to choose the traditional and classic wedding invitation.
If you and your fiancé would prefer an oriental theme, you can choose to send intricate oriental invitations. If something more offbeat appeals to you both, send an anchor or pirate hat shaped invitation for a pirate themed wedding, or an old_world style invitation on parchment paper that looks like they have been hand written for a very traditionally themed wedding.
