I don’t think they have to match…. nobody will be bringing your invitations to the wedding with them to compare! I would try to stick to the color palette, but that’s just my personal preference

I don’t think so. 

Ours have subtle black mosaic borders.  Nothing fancy.

i dont think they have too, it all depends on whether you want to give people a hint on what your theme is going to be, my friend had black and teal invites and her wedding colours were brown and pale pink, she did this on purpose as she knew here sil would have to match the colours even though my friend didn’t want her too.

 the sil wore teal and was annoyed not to match the bridesmaids 

 

mine will match simply because i want them too.

i don’t think it’s necessary but a lot of brides like to set the theme of the wedding with their invites.

i too bought a simple diy kit on clearance.  my print layout was a bit less traditional and i added some of my own embellishments to pull the colours and theme together.

you are so good with your diy projects, you could totally pull anything off.

They don’t have to match, as long as they convey the style of your wedding (formal, casual, semi-formal) then don’t worry about it, anything more is personal preference.

@couawilou:  I used the exact same invite its. I just added a purple ribbon around the folder and secured it with the monogram sticker that came with the kit. You can always use a ribbon in your wedding color? Or switch out the sticker for something “Fallish”. There are many different ways to dress these invitations up a bit and incorporate your wedding theme. I don’t think it is completely necessary for the invitations to match your theme. These are a pretty neutral design so it’s not like it will totally go against any wedding theme.

I think invites are more to set the tone of the wedding rather than the theme.  I wouldn’t worry about adding any extra details unless you want to do it – they’re definitely not necessary.

@shannonh32:  i like this idea in the wedding colours

i also like adding a little colour to the invite with ribbon.  i found this one with a flower but i thought how awesome it would look with a fall leaf.

or just a ribbon in the wedding colours

@tresim36:  I got mine from Joann’s. Used a 50% off coupon and got the kits for super cheap! So much cheaper than ordering them. 🙂
