    I don’t think it’s ‘tacky’ but I don’t like it. It looks like it’s for two different occasions. You can have them different but the same. Same font, same design but different colors (same color scale).

    They are a wee bit different when stacked together, but honestly, by the time folks get their invites they’re not going to look at the STD and go “NUH UH, they don’t match!!” However, if you’re at all concerned, there are plenty of b/w generic-ish templates on Vistaprint.  🙂

    I hate to use the work tacky, but those do not go together at all! Sorry =(

    @WillyNilly:  That’s the invite and the RSVP, so I assume they’d be going in the same envelope

    I wouldn’t call it tacky, but I agree with PP, I would be confused bc they don’t look like are for the same event. 

    I personally prefer the first design/layout/font.

    I don’t think it’s tacky to mix and match if it still *matches*. Those two just don’t go well together.

    @MeiFrancis:  Oh, I thought it was a STD and the RSVP card. In that case, nosireeeee. Back to the drawing board.

    @echolove:  I actually prefer the skull design.  If you could find a way to replace the top one with skulls and take out all the pink, I think it would be adorable.

    @echolove:  I think the skull idea could be cute.Use the same border as the top image, or another border, and use the same skull heads.

    I would not put those two in the same envelope. The color schemes are totally different first of all. If you changed the font on the skull card, and replaced all the purple with the pink and the tan, and added some antiqueing around it to make it look old, and replace the cameo heads with your skull heads you could definitely pull this off.

    The wording is a whole nother can of worms.

    i’m not a fan nor do I think the skulls in any way shape or form reflects your rustic theme – it’s more of a halloween party style in my opinion.

    Save the Dates and Invitations can be completely different.  But Invitations and RSVP cards?  That’s a little odd in my opinion, especially to have such a drastic difference as the one you posted.  I’m not a fan.

    If it’s a rustic backyard wedding, why are there skulls?  I just don’t get it.  Also, the invite’s main colors are brown and pink, so that’s what I’d think your wedding colors are.  The white and purple RSVP card would just confuse me.  It looks like a Halloween party invite that you picked up at the store and stuck in with the invite card.  It just doesn’t fit together at all.
