I ordered my invitations from Mygatsby, and I was able to get sample invitations and color swatches.  By cutting up the swatches, and taping them to the sample invitation, I was able to see what it would look like with and without a backing layer.   It helped me decide what to do, and might be helpful for you.

I like it with the backing, but I don’t think it’s 100% neccessary.  Especially since you say you’re already spending more than you want for your invitations- I would just cut the backing, or else think about ordering some paper later on and backing them yourself.

However, I just looked and it’s what, an extra $13 for every 25 invitations?  That doesn’t seem too bad.  I would do the navy backing, that way your motif will really pop- the green backing would be too much green in my opinion.
