So, I found these invites at hobby lobby that had their price reduced by….a lot. It was a steal. I couldn’t pass it up. (Also, the fiance wouldn’t let me). They’re beautiful, kind of light blush pink color with dark scrolly kind of decor on them. I love them. He loved the price (I loved the price too)…but I was hesitant to get them because they’re not really in the color scheme we were going for. I origionally wanted kind of a dark purple, silver and white.
Would it be considred “tacky” or “weird” to have invites not match the wedding? No colors are set in stone except the invites. Everything else I have is very neutral.

You could always bring in your colors by printing them with purple ink if you want. I don’t think that they necessarily have to match the colors, they just set the tone, IMO.

I don’t think it matters, and I doubt anyone will notice/care, but you could add some touches of blush pink into your wedding color scheme if you wanted to tie it in. I think all those colors go well together.

My invite colors are black and teal and gold and the actual wedding colors are white, black and turquoise. IMO it doesnt matter if the invites match the wedding colors and I don’t think anyone is really going to remember or care by the time the wedding rolls around

Our invites have a similar story! Lol. They are a bit pinker than I would have wanted, but they do still incorporate our purple. The background has a very light pattern in it that is pink-ish, which I didn’t love. But the ribbon and flower along the bottom is our purple so I figured it wasn’t too far off. 😉 I’m a budget-bride, invites were not one of my priorities either. I figure most of them get thrown away so why would I blow hundreds?

To be honest, I don’t think it matters if they match. We tend to over think everything.

@QBbride: You’re right. I definitely have been over-thinking this whole thing! I finally settled on a dress so now everything else doesn’t seem stressful. I’ve decided to go with a sageish green and white and brown instead of purple and silver. Just because I know that those colors won’t clash as much as they would with purple.

I think most people kind of forget what the invitation looks like by the time they actually get to the wedding. I think the most important thing is to match the formality of the wedding to the invitation.
