My wedding is really far away (May 2010) but I have a feeling my life is going to get crazy soon (graduating college in 5 weeks, looking for a new job, buying a house, holycrap), so I want to start thinking about invitations now. Our wedding colors are (as of now) green, black, and white and we’re going for a playful, not-too-serious yet classy and chic feel. We don’t have a direct "theme."
So my question is, should our invitations have to match our wedding colors or should they just reflect the general feel of the event? Thanks so much!

Good luck and Congrats on everything happening in your life!! My wedding colors are gun metal grey and purple our invitations were ivory with grey writing. I think you want the invitation go along with the feel of your wedding. They don’t have to match necessarily but, you don’t want to have blue and purple invitations if your colors are not even close to that.

You can match colors, reflect the feel, or BOTH! 🙂 With your current colors of green, black, and white, you can definitely do something playful, classy, and chic like you described. You can do white paper, and have green text with black ribbon for something more modern. Switching it up and doing white paper with black text is more traditional, but you can still opt in a funky green ribbon to give it a pop. OR, if you want to do green paper with black text and a white ribbon or pocketfold, that could be fun too! There’s lots you can do with those color combinations.
The font you choose can also say lots!
We did invites that matched the color and feel of our wedding. Our colors were pink and gold and we used a lot of ivory, too. Our event was to be grand and romantic. We used a scripted font with a traditional looking engraved font. We did a flourish in a brown-gold along with the text except for our names which were in pink. We did a pink matting on a gold pocketfold and embellished it with a pink crystal on our monogram to seal the entire invite.
