Yes, protocol and tradition plays a large part. Maybe one day someone will design an invitation that conforms to protocal and tradition with a little twist.

From what we've been seeing here, in bits and pieces, the royal invitations are made by a special engraving process that is at least a couple of centuries old. I expect it's expensive enough just to have best quality card stock. Adding furbeloes to those traditional invitations just doesn't seem right - but I keep hearing that Kate doesn't want a terribly extravagant wedding (!)

I was wondering how much professional calligraphers might charge in the U.K. to address all those invitations - it's quite expensive here. The personalized touch of writing in each invitee's name is well worth it, I think, but I doubt that those companies who cater to we common folk would find it hard to allow for such an option (the paper has to be just right - it cannot be to thin and porous).

Myself, I would have been ecstatic with the invitations that they chose.

I personally liked William and Catherine's wedding invitations. Victoria and Daniel's, too!

Are there any pictures of Frederick and Mary's, and William-Alexander and Maxima's wedding invitations?

This is such an invitation. There were several ones: for the pre-wedding ball, for the concert in the Royal Concertgebouw, for the National Wedding Celebration in the Amsterdam ArenA, for the marriage ceremony, for the blessing service, for the déjeuner (lunch), etc.

Here is one for the déjeuner. The gold application (depicting the royal arms) and the perchment paper project not so well on this picture. It reads in Dutch:


.

BY COMMAND OF

HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
AND
HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS PRINCE CLAUS OF THE NETHERLANDS


THE GRANDMASTER HAS THE HONOUR TO INVITE

MR AND MRS BOLL-KRUSEMAN

TO THE DÉJEUNER FOR THE OCCASION OF THE WEDDING OF
HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PRINCE OF ORANGE
AND
MS MÁXIMA ZORREGUIETA
ON SATURDAY 2 FEBRUARY 2002 AFTER THE BLESSING SERVICE IN THE NIEUWE KERK
IN THE ROYAL PALACE AMSTERDAM

.

REQUESTING TO RETURN
THE ATTACHED REPLY
BEFORE 1 DECEMBER 2001


.

Such an invitation is part of a thick envelope with instructions, a seating arrangement, a security badge, a parking label, a transport card (for the shuttle between the parking and the venue), an attachment to respond on the invitation with the necessary extras (copy of ID, etc.). This invitation had no dresscode but because these were for guests in the Nieuwe Kerk, the dresscode was already mentioned on the invitation for the blessing service ("Heren: donker pak, Dames: middagjapon en hoed" / "Gentlemen: dark suit, Ladies: mid-day dress and hat")

I think it was a classic déjeuner dînatoire (= an extended lunch with warm courses) served at mid-day receptions. The wedding of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima was ready by lunchtime indeed.
