I would never notice that the invites didn’t match a wedding exactly! As long as there is some connection, and they set the proper tone of formality, I don’t think it matters. I’d stick with the flowers you want!

It sounds like it still has a look, for sure!  Just because it’s not all the same color, that’s okay…I know, for example, I was concerned about my light blues and turquoise and aqua clashing with the reception’s sage green, but on the wedding day, it just WENT.  It’s easy to get caught up with details that seem important!

With creme, pink, champagne, gold and the black dresses, I ‘see’ a really pretty day!!  Maybe the addition of silhouettes, cameos and soft elegance!

If you go to stylemepretty.com, you’ll see that a lot of the wedding’s posted on there are NOT just one color!! I say do whatever you want, you definitely have the colors you want – so just go with it! I don’t think you need to “tie” anything together on your invitations, so just as long as the colors go well together at the actual wedding I don’t see any problem with it! Do what yah do girl!!!! 🙂

I second what krissycake said.  The picture she posted was exactly what I thought of too.

That inspiration board is so beautiful and elegant!  I can see your look coming together and I love adding champagne to the mix.

I struggle with the same thing, but I think that no one will notice is not exactly fluid.

If you need any help with vendors or support PM me! I am planning a Cleveland wedding and am local:)

No one will know exactly what your colors are! An inspiration board definitely helps tie in a bunch of colors!

I think it sounds pretty cohesive.  Nobody (guest) is trying to match the invite itself to the event, it’s the vibe and energy of the event that needs to be reflected in the invite.  That said, I am one to obsess about such little details myself….it’s so hard!  However, I think you sound like you are a right on match with everything.  I always think of cream and gold as the same family.  It sounds very formal, classic and clean and if you did pink invites, just like you said, the energy would be off., it would seem a bit more casual.

@krissycake made some awesome points here…and I absolutly think you have a theme!! It is much more then colors…it is the “feel” of it all, the the “theme” is there so no guests will notice…heck, you probably won’t! 

I think your choices sound great and can’t wait to see pictures after your I do’s…although I have a bit of a wait…it’ll fly though 🙂
