I’ve decided my colors are going to be navy blue and bright yellow. I want my invitations to be panel invites, with navy blue and then the printed part will be on white and attached to the panel card. I’m going to add a little yellow ribbon or something at the top. Here’s my issue. I can’t decide what color envelope to use. I am not planning on using an inner envelope. Ultimately I would love to use navy blue, but I am having a hard time finding them for a reasonable price. I have found both white and yellow envelopes in my price range. So here’s the question. Do you think it would look bad to have a navy blue invite, with a bright yellow envelope? Or would you stick with white? Or should I keep looking for navy blue? I have a long while to worry about it, but I’m trying to get some ideas while I can so I can shop around for the best prices. Thanks. I really would like to hear some opinions.

You could do a white envelope, and then have a design inside the envelope w/ navy and yellow. Does that make sense?

I personally love the idea of navy blue invites with a bright yellow envelope. It just looks so happy and vibrant! But your wedding date is early fall so yellow might scream too much like a spring or summer wedding. I like the idea of a white envelope with a colored liner (either navy blue or yellow).

I like the yellow envelop idea. Just make sure they’re lined if you have navy invites b/c if it shows thru at all your yellow will look dingy.

I think the bright yellow will look great!

Personally – I like the formality and crispness of a white envelope for a wedding invite. But I would totally vote for white outer envelope, navy blue invites, and a bright yellow RSVP envelope. We did something similar with ours (red RSVP envelopes) and it was so much fun seeing the little red envelopes show back up in the mailbox!
