I’d just send them. They mean a lot to you, but most people don’t care about invitations when they get them in the mail. At my house, they go on the fridge until I either RSVP no or attend the wedding. Then it’s into the trash. Plus, I don’t think people will be aghast if your wedding colors and the invitation don’t match. I had a friend who recently got married that didn’t want anyone to know anything about her wedding until the day of, heaven knows why, and that included colors… So maybe it can just a be a surprise?

Don’t worry about them, get them ready to go, and take a nice bath tonight. πŸ™‚ It’ll be alright.

Besides the color, do you still love the design? Are the details right? Send them out!

They don’t have to exactly match the colors at the reception (how many people are going to bring them along and compare?), they are still in the gray family, right? So they would coordinate. I think it’s better to give your guests more notice than wait another week for the absolutely perfect invitation.

I would send them anyway.  Don’t worry about them matching anything else, and I’m sure people will be able to read them okay.  (((hug))) SEND THEM!

I’m sure they’re still lovely invitations (letterpress!) so you shouldn’t worry so much. Most guests will not notice this little detail as being ‘off’ the way that you’re perceiving it. 

I agree with kerensa, no one will bring the invite to the reception to compare the colours.

If the lettering is really light, like hard to read light, that is definitely not charcoal. I would send them out but ask the designer for a partial refund. A designer should have known better.

It looks like you’re cheering up about it, so that’s good to see!

suck it up, send them out. When this is all over and done with, when you have married your Prince Charming, you’re going to see how small of an issue this will have been. I promise.

Just send them out.   It sucks, but it’s not worth the extra expense and hassle.  I doubt anyone remembers what our invites looked like now.
