    Mine were the same, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

    SweetBeets:  My friend who is a graphic designer did my STD. We sent them out via email.

    I did our invites through vistaprint. The two had similar elements, but in no way did they match.

    I don’t think they need to match, and I’d be surprised if people even notice.

    You are absolutely fine. Many people change their theme and wedding colors, between the StD and the wedding. It’s frequently difficult to get everything to match, anyway. Perhaps, through an internet search, you could get weeping willow invitations, through another supplier?

    My 1st daughter to marry got StD magnets, with their engagement photo and were predominately purple (her favorite color). Her bridesmaids wore eggplant and the decor/flowers had purple accents. She ordered neautral, boxed inviations off Etsy – mostly ivory/beige with black printing.

    My 2nd daughter to marry bought StD magnets, also with an engagement photo, with the wedding colors of gold and black. Her invitations were also from Etsy – with the theme colors of ivory and gold glitter, and black printing.

    Mine were COMPLETELY different. Our STD’s had an engagement photo of us on them, and we picked the STD colors and design to look good with the photograph we chose – I think they had red and black text – the photo was of us in Times Square at night. Our invites were super formal letterpress, black and white.

    Our wedding colors were peach and gold, I knew this when I picked the STD – it 100% does not matter. We picked what would look good with the picture we wanted to use, and I wasn’t fussed about the STDs and invites matching since we were having a formal wedding and I knew our invitations would be ivory with black print regardless.

    Of course, we didn’t have a theme, just colors, so I wasn’t especially worried about anything fitting a theme.

    SweetBeets:  Our STDs are a custom portrait of FI and I that I am having printed at Vistaprint. I chose white and black font. For our invites, I have DIY’d them and they are a bunch of different fonts that are being printed in black on kraft paper. 

    I think that outside the Bee things like matching save the dates to the invites are not something very many people actually think of or compare.

    My STD’s were made by our photographer and included two engagement photos. More fun/relaxed.

    Invitations were more formal – ivory with gold foil lettering.
