I have an idea.  I’d do a double backing of color for the invitation and for the inserts.  Select a contrasting color from your palette and have the designer add this in.  It may be a bit more of a cost, but would give a huge color pop.

Or another thought..instead of having your printed monogram on the front of the invitation as I see, use raffia and have a pinky coral shell  holding the invite together as its bellyband.  It’d be less expensive and give a pop of beachy color!  I’m doing this!

If you have a Hobby Lobby (or other craft store) near you, go pick up a rubber stamp or two with a sea shell design, and a pad of light blue ink (or mocha or any other color really).  Stamp a shell or two in the corner of each pocket where you want to add color.  If you make them overlap each other a little or hang off the page a bit, it’ll look even more artistic!

Hope that helps!

I like @bellenga’s ideas!  You could also print the text or some part of the text in color.  Maybe switch out the tan belly band with something colored or patterned, or double back the belly band with something colored or patterned.

Maybe get a stamp and stamp & emboss the edges or sides of the invite or pocketfold.

The good thing about this suite is that the colors are netral and it’s very simple and classy.  It’ll be easy for you to add little pops of color and jazz it up once you get your ideas together.

You could do an embossed stamp on the front of the pocketfold…


Or, I would probably swap out the belly band for a colourful textured, or maybe even patterned one, and a bit wider.

Or, if it’s not too difficult, you could swap out the brown backing behind the main invite and inserts for a colourful piece of paper. 

I made mine myself, and found it insanely difficult to get everything lined up straight when I did the backings, so just be prepared for a little frustration if you go that route.

This is small, but you could also change the ink color to whatever the accent wedding color is…I did that for mine and they turned out great…

I think they look great as they are.  Sometimes simpler is better.
