    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.

    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.)
