I’ve been planning and planning on incorporating ombre throughout the wedding, beginning with the invitation suite. Well, I can’t seem to find the right shade of pink for the flower on the enclosure card. Am I overthinking this, or do I need to get another set printed with a different color?
This is the first round — the shade of pink on the enclosure card was indistinguishable from the one on the invitation.
This is round two — I was basically winging it, trying to find a shade of pink that I thought would be somewhere in the middle and I worry that now it’s too much like the pink used on the response card.
Here’s a close up of the cards used in round two.
What are your thoughts? Am I crazy, or are the pinks really too close again and I should try for round three?

cbgmtx: I think they look fine! It is a more subtle ombre but there is definitely a difference 🙂

I think it looks totally fine, it’s not quite as dark as the rsvp card.

In my understanding of ombre it’s just the same color in different levels of dark to light? If that’s the case…you have pink in light colors to dark. If that’s all correct then I think you’re fine.
But really…*I am in NO WAY trying to be rude and I hope it doesn’t come across that way* this is going to be something that you look back on after the wedding and think “why did I stress so much over this?” The colors look pretty together…YOU may notice that things are “ombre” but I’m guessing most of your guests will not notice. If I got those invitations..even the first ones..I would just be thinking “these are very pretty!” I would not be thinking “Oh this ombre invitation is very pretty!” But I would not be thinking that even if they were the PERFECT shades to be considered ombre.
Take a breath. 🙂 Your invitations are beautiful. Your wedding will be beautiful. Don’t get caught up on the little details other people probably won’t notice.
Everything said…I could be wrong. Maybe I just wouldn’t notice and everyone else on here will say that everyone completely will notice. I could just be lame! Haha.

You’re overthinking this. They look fine. No one who gets one is going to look at it for more than 15 seconds anyway. Your guests aren’t going to notice subtle color differences, and even if they did, they honestly are not going to care. Just take a breath and chill.

Yes, you’re overthinking this. It’s nice. And most people won’t even notice it, honestly.

Yeah, no one is even going to realize it’s supposed to be ombre, so I wouldn’t worry. If you had some kind of color gradient going on within each separate card or on each individual flower, then maybe, but not like this.

Thanks, all. I know it’s an overreaction but I am that jerk who notices that kind of stuff so of course it’ll get under my skin when it’s my own wedding. But you’re right, in the scheme of things, it’s not important and most people won’t notice. Or if they do, they’ll wonder why I used different shades of pink. Plus I realized that just because this is the shade I’m using on the invitations doesn’t mean I have to use it on the reception stationery. I’m slowly backing off the ledge now. Thanks for the quick responses!

I didn’t get what you were talking about, at first, but now I get it and I think it looks great! Definitely do not invest more money or time or stress in redoing these! Everybody will think they’re great, as is. I can absolutely guarantee that nobody will think “This really doesn’t fit closely enough with the ombre theme and I’m not coming!” So be done with the invitations and move on to the next project!

cbgmtx: Just remember all invitation get thrown in the trash when you are a guest. So ask yourself, is it worth for me to stress about something that ultimately is going to end up in the trash?
