I think that would be a really cute idea. 

Be aware, anything that makes an invitation “non-machinable” adds to the cost of postage.  I have a pearl bead embellishment on the belly band around my invite suite and it ends up costing me 20 cents extra per invite for postage. 

From USPS.com:

Letters that meet one or more of the nonmachinable characteristics below are subject to the $0.20 nonmachinable surcharge. For items over 3.5 ounces, see Large Envelope or Package.

  • It is a square letter (the minimum size for a square envelope is 5 x 5 inches.)
  • It is too rigid – does not bend easily
  • It has clasps, string, buttons, or similar closure devices
  • It has an address parallel to the shorter dimension of the letter
  • It contains items such as pens that cause the surface to be uneven
  • The length divided by height is less than 1.3 or more than 2.5

Type in “button invitation” or “button wedding” into Google images: it gives a lot of inspiration!
