Im contemplating amending my wedding colours but i have already completed half of my invitations. Do they have to match my colours?
Im ditching the orange from my colour scheme and just going with sage green, cream and Chocolate Brown.
The insides of the invites are just white and brown so its just the front that has the orange.

@ChocolateLime: Your invites are lovely. I’d stick with them. I didn’t match.

Mine don’t match. They look great! I bet no one will even notice.

Thank you. They take so long to make though, wishing i had just bought them!
I think i am going to go to hobby craft and find some sage ribbon and a different flower and try and change one of them to see how easy it is. If its tricky i will leave them as they are.
My mum said guests often use the invites to figure out what colour to wear, but i hardly think my family and freiends are going to go out and buy orange dresses…especially if they think the bridesmaids may potentially be in orange.

those who matter don’t mind, and those who mind don’t matter

I think it would be a very small percentage that would actually be thinking about the color scheme at the wedding & what the colors were on the invite. They’re very pretty as it. Save yourself some trouble and just go with them.

I don’t think it matters if the colors match, as long as your invitations set the tone for your wedding and convey to guests what “type” of event it will be.

No, they don’t have to match! Your plan to trying to swap the ribbon/flower to see if it’s easy seems like a good one, but if it ends up being too difficult, just leave them the way they are. Most people won’t remember the colors on the invitation once they’re at the wedding, I’d imagine.

OK so i went to Hobby craft and bought some ribbon and flowers came home and tried to change one of them and it wasnt too bad…

They don’t have to! I really don’t think anyone will notice.

I love your ivitations! If you wouldn’t mind, could you tell me more how you made them?
Out of the two you posted, I think I prefer the purple on the top, and it should work with both flower/ribbon sets. But, both invitation is beautiful!

@NinjaDuck: its the same invitation, all i did was remove the orange flower and ribbon and stick the green on. must be the lighting!!
I just bought some pre folded white cards online and some brown card which i cut down to half the length of the white card and stuck on using double sided sticky tape.
The paper calla lillies were bought online. they come as individual stems so i just stuck them together using a hot glue gun then attached the ribbon using double sided sticky tape and glue gunned the bow in the middle.
The stamp was bought from a craft store and i used a brown shimmer ink. it doesnt show us as well in the photos though.

Nobody will notice they don’t match. I think this is only something the bride worries about!

@ChocolateLime: Thanks! I’ve been working on my own today. Quick question, where did you end the ribbon? And what did it look like at the end of the ribbon? I cant seem to figure it out in my head and don’t currently have ribbon to play around with.
