You can rewrite or copy the code from Mage/Sales/Model/Order/Invoice.php to local folder and add the below function

public function getInvoiceDate()
    {
        $createdAt = $this->getCreatedAt();
        $invoiceDate = date('d M Y', strtotime($createdAt));
        return $invoiceDate;
    }

In invoice email template, get the date as {{var invoice.getInvoiceDate()}}. Like this you can add any number of functions and get from email templates

Please note that in addition to Adarsh' answer, the getCreatedAtFormated()-method is only applied to the Mage_Sales_Model_Order-object. So in order to make use if it in an invoice e-mail, you need to use:

{{var invoice.getOrder().getCreatedAtFormated('medium')}}

Unfortunately this will still show the time.

For formatting date in email template use following line:

{{var order.created_at('medium')}}

See following function in /app/code/core/Mage/Sales/Model/Order.php

/**
 * Get formated order created date in store timezone
 *
 * @param   string $format date format type (short|medium|long|full)
 * @return  string
 */
public function getCreatedAtFormated($format)
{
    return Mage::helper('core')->formatDate($this->getCreatedAtStoreDate(), $format, true);
}

Hope this helps.

UPDATE

Since there is no date formatting function written in invoice class, you can extend the Invoice and add below code:

/**
     * Get formated invoice created date in store timezone
     *
     * @param   string $format date format type (short|medium|long|full)
     * @return  string
     */
    public function getCreatedAtFormated($format)
    {
        return Mage::helper('core')->formatDate($this->getCreatedAt(), $format, true);
    }

Now, you can call in your transactional email:

{{var invoice.getCreatedAtFormated(medium)}}
