I’ve been working with a “friendor” graphic designer on our STDs and wedding invitations. We decided to go with a different style for the actual invites than what we did for the STDs. Now, I’m stumped on whether or not to have the wedding invites and the rehearsal dinner invitations to similar in style?!?! They would be the same color family, same font and same paper type (linen).
Any opinions? Did anyone have them similar or different?

If you send them together, then I would say maybe. Otherwise, I don’t think it matters

I’d actually do them different – but just because I think variety is fun! In the big scheme of things – it doesn’t matter. I’d have the RD invites reflect the tone of the RD itself (and not the wedding).

I think it depends. If they’re both casual or both formal, they could be the same, but I wouldn’t send a formal invite to an informal RD just to match.

I did mine completely opposite! I loved our invites but I wanted to do something really funky and graphic and my family was not on board, LOL! So I went crazy for the rehearsal invite to get it out of my system.
Wedding invite (it was 5 pages, so here’s just the first and main pages):

We did different ones since we were hosting the dinner for our son and soon to be daughter in law and they did the wedding invites.. we showed them what we liked and they loved it.. a bit whimisical.. here are the ones we did: http://www.celebrationideasonline.com/rehearsal-dinner-invitations.html they were perfect as our rehearsal dinner was a casual event.

It was important to FMIL that they be the same, so she ordered the rehearsal dinner invites in the same style as my invites. I would have chosen to go with something different (our RD is going to have a totally different vibe than our wedding reception), but of course it is her deal so I just let it lie.

I designed our invites and STDs and they are completely different styles. I really worried about them not being cohesive for a while, then I decided that it didn’t matter. What mattered to me was that I (as the designer) liked them and that they represented us as a couple. When it comes time to think about the rehearsal dinner invites, I plan to design something else, maybe in the same theme, but maybe completely different.
Besides, how else can you use all of your inspiration ideas if you don’t do some of it differently?
