So, I can feel my first big bridal meltdown looming. I am getting married in April and the Invitations need to go out in February. I know that DIY invites take a lot of time with the hand addressing, assembling, sealing, etc so the FI and I are getting started on the process now. Our Invitation has been designed by his cousin who is a graphic design major at Auburn, and we love it. Blue and green are our wedding colors and we are using a lighter, medium and darker version of the same colors. The invites are designed in the dark blue so I wanted to get dark blue envelopes to match but FI thinks it won’t look springy enough. I am thinking it will because we are making a custom envelope liner with the same green flowers on it as the invitation. What do you bee’s think I should do?

The only concern I have with the dark blue envelope is that you’ll have trouble getting ink that will show up clearly against it.

I voted light blue-for pretty much the same reason as Rosy chicklet said. And it’d look fine. Those are your colors! = )

The only color ink I could think to use would be silver.

I agree, I think you should do the light blue. Matching exactly isn’t necessary and you won’t have to worry about the ink color.

I think the dark blue envelope with a flowered green liner sounds SO GORGEOUS. I’d try to figure out an ink color just so I could keep the dark envelope!

keep the dark blue envelope and do white envelope wraps with green flowers!

omw, with the liners, these will be gorgeous!
I think the darker color really makes it pop and keeps it from feeling too pastel-easter-basket 🙂 but the bright greens are definitely spring-y!

It doesn’t look springy to me, sorry but since you are set on these colors I would go with pale blue instead.
