So we just settled on a venue & date (early spring) today and I picked up invitations I loved at Michaels- but I’m not sure what color(s) we’re going to do for the wedding yet- depends on bridesmaid dresses I like best I suppose! Anyway, do my invitations have to match my wedding colors? Here’s a picture of the invitations- they are not too colorful (besides the envelopes), we’re having our reception in a barn & having a rustic theme overall, so they fit in well… Anyway, let me know what you think, I can always return them if they break some cardinal rule of wedding etiquette 🙂

I don’t think anything has to match if you don’t want it to! You’re the bride – you get to decide what matches and what doesn’t!

I agree with bluebonnet and they fit your theme quite well imo.

I think your invites are adorable! Just curious, are you opposed to using those colors or you just haven’t decided yet? Either way they are fine.

@AmeliaBedelia- definitely not opposed- I am inclined towards blues & cream & browns actually (not necessarily together) we just haven’t gotten that far yet 🙂

Absolutely not! Traditionally, the invitations and the colors chosen for the wedding did NOT match. The invitations were supposed to be plain white or ecru with black lettering. Nothing else was allowed according to the arbiters of taste.
Obviously that rule no longer holds. But they still definitely do not have to color match! Invitations just need to convey the date, time, location, and level of formality of your event. If you do that, you’re golden with whatever style and colors you pick out!

Definitely not! I bought my invitations at Michaels as well and despite my wedding colours being navy, pale pink, and ivory, we couldn’t find any invitations that matched. I ended up getting cream invites with a baby blue accent – they were pretty but didn’t match our colour scheme at all. I could have cared less and I’m fairly confident none of our guests cared either.

They don’t have to match! Those look great.
