Not always. You could use red as a accent color here and there and use the green, black, and white was your primary colors.

You can do red and green without looking christmas. Esp since that green doesn’t look like a christmas color, more like apple green…it’s brighter.

I love those invitation. I believe if you just replace the ribbon with red (u could probably diy this)so compromise with your fiance.

I typed red and green inspiration boards into google and popped up a ton of cool weddings that didn’t look christmas-y at all!

I’m doing a message in the bottle invite and it actually doesn’t contain any of our colors because it’s parchment paper and bottles. My colors are assortment but what are on the beachy/tropical.

I think invitaitons are more for the theme..like unformal vs formal weddings instead of doing colors. You could also use your wedding website to mention all the colors.

Oh those are gorgeous… what a dilemma.

Well, I don’t think invitations *NEED* to match the entire scheme of your wedding. It’s a nice touch to carry the color/theme throughout the entire day, but it’s not 100% necessary.

So, he wants red AND green? Yeah… that’s a little bit too Christmas-y.

I’m usually for going with what the FH wants because, for the most part, men don’t ask for a whole lot when it comes to planning the wedding day– but I’d have to say stick with the green! I think its light & works perfect for your summer wedding. Red can feel kind of heavy…

May I ask where you got those invites from?

I wouldn’t do red and green together. I would try to find a way to do red somehow though. Are you opposed to a red and something else color scheme? Red and turqoise are beautiful together, so are red and hot pink/orange.

Can you compromise on the green? Red/black/white is beautiful together too! .. the colors don’t always have to match the season. I am doing a spring wedding with black/white/cobalt blue.. not really too springy..

Is he really set on the red? Sometimes my Fiance will suggest something, but it is just a suggestion.. he really doesn’t care one way or the other. Does he want the red as much as you want the green? Or was it just a suggestion?

I assume you’re saying you need to keep the green since your invites have already been made? What if you were to use a magenta or burgundy with the green (not equally use one mostly with pops of the other) – that way it’s not christmas-y. would your Fiance like that or does he specifically want true red?

OOOH, or – since you even referred to the green color as “green apple” – why don’t you incorporate an APPLE theme to your wedding!? That way, you can have both that green apple color as well as red (red apples) and nobody will think Christmas because the apple motif will be obvious. haha, I don’t know if apples will fit your mediterranean wedding, but I’m getting married in apple country, so it seemed like a good suggestion. 🙂

Okay, I just looked at the picture Miss Yap posted, and I think it’s lovely! It would be perfect for your summer wedding, too. Use that as inspiration and stick to the really bright colors and nobody will be thinking Christmas.

 Or is that how it works? haha.. I don’t know much about it since I am DIY

@ cobalt: Oh, right. sample. I guess I just assumed they were stuck with the invites since she was wondering about them needing to match the rest of the wedding.

@ rubymarie: I like those invites, and I think they would still work if you were to go with the martha stewart lime and cherry combo. Otherwise, maybe do something just like those invites with a pop of the cherry color, or even mostly the red/cherry with a pop of the lime like the inspiration photo.

haha, sorry I keep commenting on here – I just realized that the bride icon for weddingbee has a red bouquet and the site is green – more inspiration for mixing the colors! 😉

lol. My Fiance insisted on navy after I had decided on red. So I had to scrap the red so I didn’t look like a fourth of july parade. sigh.
