Those two look great.  I think your mom is being a little old fashioned and I wouldn’t worry about doing something a little different.  

I am DIYing linen invites.. (or the main invite is in linen fabric…  the rest will be on red and white cardstock) So far everyone I’ve shown them to loves them!

I was expecting something a little more off the wall.  Those are pretty traditional to me.  Mine are going to be these http://www.etsy.com/transaction/63746120.  Perhaps show your mom something along those lines and then show her the ones you really want to soften the blow.

i consider the 2 you linked as samples as tradtional to be honest – they are sweet though

Mine aren’t very traditional. I hand made them and I couldn’t be happier!

I’m with zomgwut and was expecting something way different & think the ones you like are pretty traditional tbh.

Ours were VERY colorful and VERY untraditional (even though we stuck with a pocketfold).

Maybe look around here in the DIY and see what some other brides have done & you can show your mom what is common these days, so she’ll be more okay with your picks =)

those two are pretty but actually very very traditional in my opinion.  Ours were not traditional at all.  We used a very “different” format and had a lot of color on them.

I agree that those invitations are certainly very traditional looking.  I prefer to keep the wording traditional and have fun with the color or graphics.
