    How about do the traditional and use the ticket idea for RSVPs? Then you get to include both and can’t really regret it later. 🙂 Such a cute idea.

    I think it could go either way.  The theater ones are really fun, but the pocketfold ones are gorgeous.  Will your wedding have pronounced theater references or be more subtle?  Maybe that can help guide your decision.

    Sorry I’m not much help, but whichever way you go will be awesome!

    i think you could find a middle ground…like a ticket inspired invite that’s not quite so literal. i know i’ve seen some cute ones on etsy!

    @AmeliaBedelia: Love this idea, definitely better as a compromise.

    SInce your theme is theatre, I love the ticket style invitation. Maybe try doing a bill fold type?

    @Mrs Hedgehog: What about this for inspiration? Paper color and font color are only two colors. More modern, but still with the ticket theme?

    I think the classic is elegant and will be a little better receieved.

    We had ticket Save-The-Date Cards and no one understood what they were, lol… even though they clearly said “save the date – we’re getting married” in bold. I was glad we didn’t send out that many! (just to those who would have to book flights, etc.)

    I voted traditional just because in my case, the tickets were confusing to guests.

    I hear ya! I need to get my invitations out, but I can’t make a decision as to how I want them to look! There are so many different, fun ideas out there!

    I say do the ticket/follow your theme. Or what about doing the pocketfold but including the ticket stub RSVP?
