Invitation Etiquette for the Nontraditional Wedding

I'm right in the middle of wedding season right now, and I find myself sending the same emails to couples over and over when we're working on the details of their wedding invitations. So I decided to put together a series of blog posts to address some of the most common tips I give regarding invitations. For this post, I created an easily printable and pinterest-friendly infographic.

Because my invitations tend to be more whimsical and illustrative, I find that I attract clients who are having slightly less traditional weddings. They want their weddings to be unforgettable, beautiful events that are reflective of their unique personalities, and this extends to their wedding invitations, as well. In general, weddings are full of conventions and century-old traditions, some of which seem stuffy or outdated to the modern couple. With that being said, there are certain conventions regarding invitation etiquette that serve an important function. So here it is: five rules you should break and five rules you should keep when it comes to invitation etiquette for the nontraditional wedding.
