I don’t think you need to change your whole wedding color scheme to match your invitations. It’s not like people will be holding up thier invite for comparison; “does the tablecloth match the invitation border? No?! OMG!” If anyone did that at my wedding, I would happily tell them where they could shove it.

But seriously, they’re going to walk into your venue and just be overwhelmed by the lovely decor. No one will be thinking about whether it matches the invitations.

LOL I agree with shnoogles 🙂

When I was making my invitations I was worried the the shade of green is slightly off from the shade of green that will be at the wedding & my friend just flat out said “nobody will be holding up the invitation at your wedding thinking, humm those shades are different” & then more then likely they will completely forgot the colors of our wedding inviation anyway 🙂

I think shnoogles nailed it. No one is going to be comparing your invite to your decor, in fact, most people probably won’t remember your invitation that clearly anyway. I think the colors sound fine and it will all come together, trust me. You don’t want to add too much red and gold if they are your accent colors so the navy tablecloths and white flowers sound perfect.

As others said, I don’t think anyone will care. Unless it bothers you personally, leave it be and don’t stress another minute over it. Laughing

keep doing what you’re doing.. no one else will be focused on it as you are.

i had the same thing: my colors are yellow and orange. the invites were orange and brown because it was too expensive to do 3 colors and i was told yellow or orange fonts were hard to read. now people think the colors are orange and brown.. but my flowers will still be yellow and orange.

dont stress over it.  My invites were ivory and a merlot color, our wedding is navy with white and yellow accents.  Only one person has actually noticed so far, and we explained we had the invited printed before we changed our color scheme.

Don’t stress chic! I think the other girls have said it the best, no one will notice. I think you are starting to go into wedding overload and that’s the only reason you are freaking out right now. Just try and not worry about this because people won’t remember, I promise. 

P.S. I love your new profile pic—macaroons look so tasty and I really want to try them.

I’m not a believer in everything being matchy-matchy from the STDs to the Invites to the wedding reception colors etc etc etc. It’s nice to have some sense of continuity, but as for freaking out about it and altering anything based on the invitation – not necessary. This is one of those things where we need to step outside of bride wedding planning world and be like “Does this matter at all in the grand scheme of things?” And the answer to that is a big NO.

Not directly related but I had one of these moments the other day when I was looking at tablecloth colors and napkins and such and freaking out and I just sort of stopped at one point and realized that I don’t remember what color the damn napkins were at anyone’s wedding. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

there are so many colors out there it’s near impossible to make anything match.  I’m sure your venue and decorations will turn out great.  And it’s okay if it doesn’t match exactly with the invitation.  No one but you will notice.

Yeah, I agree with everybody else! We’re not really doing the traditional wedding colors thing. There’s a scheme for the wedding stuff, but it’s more just an overall feel. The only thing we have set colors for, idea wise is the invitations and printed materials. I say no worries.

Our wedding invitations don’t have our colors in it at all. First the paper that I liked, pressed flowers, didn’t have pink in it, and then the envelopes that I wanted didn’t come in pink either, which was fine because those wouldn’t have matched the paper. So I figure the invites will tell people the feeling of the wedding rather than be so literal. My mom actually did make a comment about it, not that she cares she was just wondering why we didn’t use pink. I doubt anyone else will notice and if they do, I just don’t care.
