    I do feel that the invitation conveys the feeling of the wedding, and since you are having a semi-formal wedding; your guests may instead think it is a relaxed/fun wedding instead due to the informality of the invitation. 

    However, I do love the idea of having things at the wedding that represent your personalities & interests – so maybe you can turn this into a large guestbook, or incorporate in your table numbers or something like that.

    The invitation should prepare the guest for the wedding – I would come for a wedding significantly less formal than semi-formal, unfortuantely.  I don’t think it’s tacky though; it just doesn’t express the vibe you’re going for.

    That’s so fun! I personally don’t care what the invite looks like compared to the wedding formality. I would do that!

    I think it would be hilarious…if it went with your wedding. I would think it was weird if I got that invite in the mail, then showed up to a formal purple wedding that had nothing to do with video games. Not only that, but I would also be dressed for a casual wedding if I based it off that invite. If you want a formal wedding, you kind of have to have a formal invite, or your guests will be underdressed IMO.

    I LOVE the idea and I think it’s great to incorporate touches like this that express who you are as a couple. However I do agree with the others who said an invitation prepares guests for the style of the wedding. So if you think there’s a disconnect between these nontraditional invitations and the formality of your wedding, maybe it’s not a good fit. But if you’re having other informal touches throughout the wedding I think it’s fine!

    Since this doesn’t go with your wedding, I wouldn’t use them as invitations. But what if you did them as Save the Dates?

    I think if people know you, which since they are coming to your wedding I hope so, and it goes with your persinality, rock it! I would love these nerdy invites! Who cares if they don’t exactly match the wedding, they match you and that is what a wedding is about.

    I don’t think everything has to be matchy matchy in terms of invite -> wedding (although I used to think this), for what its worth. I think the invite should jazz up your guests to be excited about the oncoming event.  The only thing I would be concerned about is if you have a dress code, make sure to state it as all the tech geeks I know would assume from the invite that it was all about jeans, tees, and flip flops.  But they’re still super cute and I would rock them if they fit our personality!
