    I like the homemade ones since they’re so much more personal.  I wouldn’t worry that much about the slightly different colours.  It could look intentional, to provide some dimension.

    Are the blue ones already ordered? It looks like a vistaprint flyer on the bottom of the stack, so I’m thinking yes.

    I love the second ones, but I’m going to be honest – I don’t think it’s worth hurting your fiance’s feelings over. Even if he does say you can do whatever you’d like, think about if you took the time to design something and he went and basically undid it. Even if you were happy he got what he liked, it still would have a little sting to it. I also would be less likely to volunteer to do things or help in the future if my Fiance did that to me.

    Since it’s about the marriage, not the wedding, I’d start off on the right foot and show his contribution appreciation by using them. That was one relationship/marriage tip I read awhile back that stuck with me – if you ask someone to help with something, and then you go back and undo their work because it wasn’t the way you wanted it, they are very unlikely to help again (it was specifically talking about cooking and cleaning I think, but it really applies in all sorts of things).

    Also, I really like the blue ones!!! I think they are so cute and special that he made them. While I prefer the slightly more formal look of the second ones, I think the first ones are really lovely too. If they were AWFUL, my answer above would have been different! But they are great.

    I promise the mismatch won’t matter. They are going to be sending in that RSVP card anyway, so the two pieces won’t be next to each other in your guests’ hands for very long.
