I am putting our save the dates together. Our wedding colors are red and black with silver accents.
I designed the STDs with a friend. The text is mostly black with “STD” and our date in red font and printed on a pale silver paper. This is glued to a deep red bracket card so it looks like it’s framed.
I wanted to send these in a onyx metallic envelope. I would use the USPS wedding stamps for postage and will be addressing these in silver ink. The Fiance thinks the envelope color is morbid for a wedding invitation and he thinks I should use the red matching the card. My opinion was that the black not only ties in our colors but also allows the red of the card to visually “pop” when someone opens the STD.
What do you think?

Do you have pics???? Sorry, I’m a visual person!

No sorry – I don’t yet because I wanted to wait to order the paper and envelopes until I ran it by some Bees.
I do have these links though. I am ordering my paper through paper presentation in NY:
Here’s the bracket card:
Here’s the envelope I’m thinking of (metallic onyx so it will be a bit shimmery):

I don’t think black is morbid at all! It would definitely pop from whatever other envelopes your guests get in their mailbox that day. I say go for it!

Yeah I’d say go for it – if those are your colours anyways, why not!!!!
I think black envelopes are absolutely beautiful!

Not morbid at all…although you might get some flak from the older crowd or your Future Mother-In-Law. I did. lol

Using FI’s favorite phrase: “That’s gonna look SHARP!”
I think it’ll look gorgeous! I love black envelopes.

I dont think black is morbid I think that its clean.. good lines . I like good clean lines lol.. anyways I think that as long as the silver ink is coming out good… not see through like some of them it will look very sharp.

I like black 🙂 It makes everything look a bit more elegant. My Save-The-Date Cards are also in black envelopes 🙂

I think they’ll look great! But I’m biased, I used a black envelope for mine.
