Should invitations be in your wedding colours?

@MissBettsy:  My invites were in my colors.  Honestly, as a guest I have usually long forgotten what the invite looked like by the time I show up for the wedding.  I would think most people do invites in their colors, but I doubt it really matters as much as we think.

Mine aren’t, but they’re also made of wood, so it would be hard to match the colors. I think as long as your invitation matches the style of your wedding, the matching your wedding colors to the colors on the invitation just doesn’t really matter!

I usually advise my clients to send out invitations that will tie in with their wedding. You want to give your guests a little “preview” of the wedding and get them excited about it. Even though you’re not using black in your wedding, I think that the intertitle card invitations sound like a great idea. See if you can think of a way to integrate gold, white and red into the rest of the invitation or the envelopes.

I think the invitation should set the ‘tone’ for your wedding, not always have to be the colors of your wedding, but something to do with the ‘theme’ that you are having.

My invitations were not in my wedding colors. My invitations were pink and black with a bride and groom on them. My wedding colors were different shades of blue. I don’t think people really remember what the invitations look like once they get all of the pertinent information they need.

Our theme was Elegant Country Spring and our colors were blue, white/ivory and pops of yellow. Our main flowers were blue hydrangeas followed by tulips. Our invites were mostly blue with pops of white and yellow. Both flowers were on our invites. We wanted to set the mood for our wedding through our wedding and I think we greatly accomplished that! Our thank you cards had the same style as well so it all tied together nicely. Of you’d like to see my invites and thank you cards let me know!

@MissBettsy:  Mine weren’t because, to be honest, I didn’t know my colours until a couple of months before the wedding! I really don’t think it’s necessary. Your invite idea sounds amazing as does your wedding venue! Can I come?!!

As an aside, my favourite cinema ever is in Wanaka! It’s so cool!! I was in NZ in the winter and it was fab. Would love to go back during the summer. A friend lives there and her fb pics are fab!

Does not matter at all. In fact, if you’re like me and indecisive, you might get the best of both worlds by using your second choice combinations as your invite colors 🙂

Thank you for this thread. I am having this dilemma myself. My “colors” are red and gray/black b/c the venue will have accents of those colors. However, the venue is also by the Manhattan skyline so I wanted to do invites with the skyline in it as that is kind of the “theme” of the wedding not the color. I am still undecided as to invites, but should have something very shortly as I need to get these out asap.

I always thought that wedding invites set the tone and showcased the theme. Mine are going to highlight our travel theme.

@MissBettsy:  those are brilliant. Just a suggestion, I wouldn’t use the exclamation marks.
