your invites don’t have to match. most of the time they do, because they can set the tone of the wedding.

if you use navy blue, they will match because that’s your bm color. you definitely don’t have to include every color in your wedding palette!

@KatNYC2011:haha no one other than maybe another bride-to-be would ever think that! i think most people forget what the invite looks like within a week, sadly.

I dont think they have to. Alot of people do match their invites to their wedding colors, but I wont be doing that.

@KatNYC2011: I know one lady who did that. We were at lunch and she said “And so I got her invites and they were so pretty so I was looking forward to the wedding but when I got there, the colors weren’t there”. I tell you, there were about 10 women there, we all stared at her mouth agape. We’d never heard of anyone doing this before. Still, my invites are not matching my wedding colors either.

I don’t think they have to either. I was just recently having a conversation with a coworker about this because the backing for my invitation is a sort of purple (Beet from papersource) and the accent color for the invites is a sort of pool blue. They look beautiful but I don’t see myself incorporating the purple shade into the actual wedding or reception since it will be in the spring and it’s a bit dark. 

Anyway, I think I don’t think most people will even look at the invitation again after they send back an rsvp card. But the orange envelope liner idea would look so pretty and would be a good way to incorporate the color.
