hi….I am getting married on this December 09 … catholic wedding at St Ignatuis Church with formal reception at Marines Memorial Sn Francsico….. ( about 200 guests)
I am confused for my color motiff—- I narrowed my 2 colors into apple red and pool or lagoon ( this is a lighter bluish green shade) or an pple red with apple green .. the 2nd choice might be too christmasy……. any suggestions? I have to make the decisio n since time is running out for my wedding invite orderig…. ( I am chooign RED as the major player due to the winter color theme that I plna to have)
for my STD, I desinged and watercolored it myself….. it had meanings in it: the first page reflects san FRacisco’s beaituful spots that most visitors go and the other page is the lighthouse from Point Reyes. I live in San francsico and LOVEs everything about SF .. and my fiancee lives in Haf Moon Bay — along the coast of hihway 1 and so it was fitiing to choose lighthouse to reflest his towm.
anyway… any suggestion for t he invite color?

If you don’t want anything too Christmas, then I would’t do any variation of green. Maybe just stick with red for the invites since you know you want that as one of your colors. Then that gives you some time to decide what accent color you want.

What about a pale gold? That wouldn’t be too Christmasy and I know they have lots of invitations out there with red as the primary color and gold trim!

I love Red and Pool/Lagoon together! I agree that if you don’t want them to look too Christmassy to stay away from a true green color, but I think the Red and Pool/Lagoon color palette is very in right now.
Here’s some inspiration that may help:

I like the first color choice as well.

Just wanted to second Cupcake on this one. She’s definitely the "invitation authority" aorund here and she knows what she is talking about! I think Red/Pool is a great winter color scheme that won’t look overly theme-y. Sounds like it is going to be a beautiful wedding!
