I think they don’t have to be exact matches, but something with the same feel of the wedding.

Can you post them here so we can see?

Today, I think pretty much anything goes!

I don’t think it’s tacky. Mine are not going to be similar at all. They’re both going to be whimsical and fun but really no other continual theme.

I think as long as you like them, that’s all that matters!

No, it is not tacky to change your mind. Many people won’t even remember what the save the date looked like by the time they receive the actual invitation. I am all for keeping everything coordinated, but if you found something you like better, it’s not a big deal.

Oh, it’s definitely not tacky. A central theme is nice, but I think it’s cool to have different aspects of your theme going so your invitation isn’t just a repeat of your STD. For example, we’re getting married in Seattle on New Year’s Eve…our Save-The-Date Cards will feature a picture of fireworks and the Space Needle and our invitations will be more winter/snowflake themed.

I don’t think it’s tacky at all! We’re planning on doing different Save-The-Date Cards and invites that really aren’t related to each other at all.

i actually think it’s nicer (IMHO) to have completely DIFFERENT feels to the Save-The-Date Cards and invitation suite.  it’s almost like there’s a cool subtext to the more formal aspects of the wedding and it’s another chance to surprise and wow guests.

I don’t they that they necessarily have to match. 

Here are a couple of suggestion though.  Buy a stamp of that douple happiness logo and stamp the inside flap of you envelope so that it will be the first thing that your guests will see.  Match the inkpad with the color of the cherry blossoms (fuschia pink or red? I can’t quite tell).  Or you could buy a pink or red ribbon and attach a double happiness charm like these charms shown in the link.  Tie the ribbon around your invites.

Good luck!!!

I dont’ think it’s tacky, people will probably not notice, and I doubt many people feel that they do have to match.
