That looks like a nice plum to me…not lavender at ALL.  They look nice!

Yeah, not lavender at all. Definitely plum.

You have two options:

1. Have the invitations reprinted at whatever the cost.

2. Accept the color…and I think this is what you should do.  They look really good in these photos.

I think they look great, and I am sure all your guests will as well.  =)

they’re very pretty… I think you’re probably the only person who will even realize that the colors are off! Most people, sad to say it, just throw the invitation away anyway.

I think they look great, but as you aid, they are darker on the photos and you’re tight with time.. reprinting them would be costsome. I think you should just stick with em  πŸ˜€

I think it is a bit different than your save the dates, but I think they look awesome!

Beautiful invitations! Correct me if I’m wrong, but the invites are letterpressed, right? I think that’s what’s accounting for the change in color. The process of printing flat (as the Save the Dates are) is very different from the letterpress process. Also, the paper we had for our letterpressed invitations was much much thicker/softer than what’s typically used for flat printing and so it absorbs the ink more. I think it’s even more pronounced because the stock for your Save-The-Date Cards looks slightly shiny/metallic so the ink didn’t really absorb at all into the paper. It sounds like you’re disappointed with the difference, but I’m sure your guests are going to think the invitations are so beautiful they’ll never notice the difference between the pieces!

I think they’re beautiful! Don’t sweat it. I’m sure its frustrating, but there’s nothing to be done, without reprinting, which would be more stress for you. 

Also: You and my sister have the same name!

Those are gorgeous! As a designer/invitation printer the letterpressing is definitely to blame. HOWEVER, those look totally plum to me! the fact that they are just a shade or so off is something that you and only you will notice. I would leave them as is, I think they’re perfect! reprinting would not only be expensive, but more stress!

It’s hard not to stress the little things, I know, but truthfully things as small as this are something that are going to get overlooked.
