Traditional Wedding: Can you still add color to your invitations? There are no rules for what is right and what is wrong when deciding how your wedding invitations should look. While a traditional wedding invitation is typically understated, adding a hint of color through ink, envelope linings or ribbon adornments are all acceptable and attractive options. If you are certain that you would like a traditional wedding, you may want to choose an understated color for these accents.
Another delightfully romantic Anna Griffin design combines tradition and modern style with lovely roses in a completely different and unusual wedding invitation. The wedding invitation includes a printed or printable panel on which you can print the wording of your invitation. The heavy ecru paper is embellished with a subtly embossed border that is designed to peek at the sides of the scalloped, rose-patterned vellum wrapper. The entire wrap is tied with a delicate satin ribbon and bow to complete a wedding invitation that evokes the romance of the Victorian era.

The modern touch is evident in the styling of the Floral Roses Matchbook Invitation, which includes a printed or printable panel and a floral jacket that can be tied together with an elegant satin ribbon, included with the invitation. The Matchbook style is a delightful nod to modern paper crafters, who routinely fasten papers together with buttons, ribbons and bows. The rose pattern on the matchbook is reminiscent of the most romantic of Victorian prints.
Another traditional, but not conventional, design offered in the Anna Griffin Wedding Album collection is the Platinum Swirls wedding invitation. The invitation consists of four separate layers, in the tradition of the most romantic and elegant of handmade invitations and Victorian cards. The backing layer is a heavyweight ecru with a fine platinum border, in the tradition of wedding invitations throughout the generations. A delicate paper patterned with platinum swirls forms a middle layer between the ecru backing and the elegantly bordered wording panel. Between the swirls and your wording, a satin platinum ribbon lends an additional touch of elegance.
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.
