    I really like the A1 style.  Very pretty!

    I don’t think your invitations need to match your wedding decor colors.  No one is going to bring the invite to the event, hold it up to a bridesmaid dress and say, “wait a minute?!?!?” ๐Ÿ™‚  My Save the Dates and Invitations do not match my wedding colors exactly (although they contain some of the same colors).

    As for RSVPS, I think it is fine if those are plain.  Maybe you could select a color from the invitation and get colored paper to print it on.  Or if you are worried about them being too plain, could you find a graphic that compliments the invitation (i.e. one of those circles with the flowers inside it, or some of the characters on the invitation)?

    Numbers 4 and 5 are showing up as the exact same thing and it looks like the inside of an invitation, with a picture of a map and words written in Korean…Hmmmm…

    I really liked the first 3 though, I think they’re all so pretty!

    To answer your questions, the invitation definitely does NOT have to be in your color scheme…In fact, a lot of people specifically pick invites not within their color scheme so the colors are sort of a surprise when people show up to the wedding.  But I do think it should be some sort of representation of your wedding (eg not super fancy if you’re wedding is cazh…)I also think it’s COMPLETELY fine to have plain RSVP cards!

    I like #2 which ironically is the one pictured above.  If you have your “colors” be grey with those pastels I think it would work.  Maybe just the pink and the peach.  The green could come in with using greenery in your bouquets.  And plain RSVPs are fine!  If I could do it over again, I would have plain ones.  They just get sent back to you.

    I really like the look of #1, but I think with only the half fold, it’d be hard to fit all the info on there ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love #5 as well… even though it’s a little more western-stereotype-of-Asia, if you know what I mean ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like the band. Can you get them printed with English, I assume? Also, the Chinese side of me loves that it has the Chinese character for marriage (hร…ยซn)!

    #2 & #4 are, um, how my American friends and I say, “going native” In My Humble Opinion. I say that with all love, and you know it, haha.

    ETA: Yes, it’s totally okay if your response cards aren’t 100% matchy-matchy. Or you could do e-RSVP, since you’re overseas… saves on finding postage! And no big deal AT ALL if your invites don’t match the color scheme of the wedding. Seriously. No one will remember!

    These invitations are seriously beautiful.  I also like number 2. 

    As far as all of the invitation collateral being matchy matchy, I think it really just depends on what you want.  I think it’s a preference thing.

    I don’t think there is anything wrong with the RSVP card to be plain, if that’s what you want.  With that being said though, I don’t recall ever receiving someone’s std, invite and rsvp that did not match.
