    Yes, it makes everything look cohesive and organized.

    No, the invites can be whatever you want them to be.

    Not unless you want them to. Get whatever invites you want and can afford.

    Metallics are a neutral I think regardless of your wedding colors you can use gold or silver (or both – I am) along with them.

    No one is going to bring your invitation to the wedding. Really the only time you’ll see it in conjunction with your decor is in your album with photos from your day.

    I think it’s more important for the invites to set the mood of the wedding (formal, fun, rustic) than to need stick to certain colors.

    I def don’t think it HAS to match but I do think it would look nicer if it did match ๐Ÿ™‚ We actually found the invitations before we picked our theme and took our theme and colors from our invitations… we were just lucky it worked out that way and that we really liked the invitations I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think the invite is a nice way to show how your wedding might look, but if you want something different there’s nothing stopping you.

    I also fell in love with an invite that is a differant color than my theme color, but it is my FI’s favorite color and I am named after that color. So, its not matching but it is meaningful. Do what makes you happy!!!!

    I think you can do whatever you want ๐Ÿ™‚ Invites tend to go out 2 months before the wedding anyway and no one will remember what color they were by the time the actual wedding rolls around ๐Ÿ™‚

    My invitations match my wedding colors but I doubt anyone will even realize that come the wedding day.  I would choose whatever invitations you want… very few people will even remember what the invitation looked like when they arrive at your wedding.

    Well, in your situation, I think your idea sounds great.  Normally I would say yes, but metallic sounds nice.

    i dont even begin to understand why they wouldnt match.  they set the tone for the wedding, let your guests know what to expect – the formality, the style, etc. i think everything should match!  if you had your choice (money aside) would the furniture in your house match?  how about your sheets and comforters?  pillows on your couch? dishes in your cupboard?  yeah!  why wouldnt they?  when you have guests over to your home, you would like your home to reflect you and your Fiance or SO, so why wouldnt your wedding and everything in it?

    Invitations don’t have to match your color/theme, but they should reflect the mood or formality of your wedding…

    Our colors are Grape, Berry, and Silver – and when it came time to pick out invites, I didn’t want a predominantly grape invitation, and I couldn’t find one that mixed all the colors. So I ended up going with a simple silver edged invitation. If I weren’t on such a small budget, I’d get someone on Etsy to custom design one with all three colors!

    Oh please, they don’t have to match. And people will know if something is formal or not, word does spread around you know. And I really don’t get this fascination with ‘themes’ etc. I also don’t understand those who come to a wedding thinking that the colors of the invitation is going to match the actual wedding ceremony/reception. I think only engaged and newlywed brides are the only ones who are enamored with this notion. I bet you they make a tiny percentage of the people you invite. Most other people will not care one way or the other. If I were you, I would worry more about the RSVPS ๐Ÿ˜‰
