My fiance’ and I disagree about which envelope we should use for our invitations. Our wedding colors are blush, peach, ivory, and potentially some light blue like the invitation. We are doing a brunch wedding in March with a little bit of a rustic feel. I won’t say which one of us likes which envelope. Please help us settle this!
PS – This is just the sample of the invitation we are getting so don’t panic that we gave out information.

I like the brown/kraft paper one, but that might be because that’s what we’re doing! It just adds a little contrast, and makes it stand out in a pile of white mail. Plus if you’re having a touch of rustic at the wedding, it fits right in! We’re having a mainly modern style wedding, but we’re trying to work in some natural elements and wood, so we thought the kraft paper envelopes with a more modern looking invite was a nice combo that would reflect the style.

brown for sure if going rustic.

I get the brown/rustic feel, but I still kind of think of paper bag material.

The brown, or a light blush/peach would look nice!

I think the white blends in too much, the brown adds contrast.

I like the brown color but I don’t like the fact that it reminds me of sack lunches. The white blends in too much. What about the blue color?

The brown looks nice! I think the white washes the colors on the invitation out. Great invitations, BTW!

I agree that a blue would be nice. White is a little plain.

Brown makes the invitation suite look more complete and pulled-together. White just looks lazy.

Brown gives off a very rustic vibe if that is what you are going for. While is a little plain, I agree a robin’s egg blue could be really nice.

Brown for sure! White looks slightly boring….

Does the white envelope actually match the invitation, or is the invitation an ivory or warmer white? Does the brown match the peachy-brown hue on the invitation? (It does not appear to do so.)
