The first one definitely looks better but my friend used a damask invite DIY kit from michaels that might have more of the look you are going for.

My friend made hers pop by having a purple monogram in the background of the invitation.

You could also add a teal ribbon to make it pop also!

I like the invitations that Future Mrs. Martin posted because it’s a combo of your two choices. I would see about using those from Michaels because it still stands out with the Damask and is close to your online template idea, but you still save the money!

I may be wrong, but I don’t think the look of the invitation is the deciding factor for attendance. Personally, I’d save the money; I do like Future Mrs. Martin’s suggestion.  Either way, I hope those that you want there are able to attend!

I just mailed my invites this week, and I used the black and white damask print from Michaels.  At first I wasn’t sure about them, but once I had them printed out I LOVED them.  I have already gotten so many compliments.  They also have programs to match that are really cute!

OK, this is funny. I went to a wedding about a year ago. Last night I was going through a box of papers that I still needed to unpack from our move to our new house which happened to be the same month as the wedding. Anyways, I found the invite from the wedding and opened it. I thought to myself “wow what a pretty invitation, I didn’t even remember this…huh…her wedding colors were blue?” Point being your guests aren’t going to notice or mind if your invites aren’t the same color as your wedding colors. I think brides over think these lil things because we get so caught up in matching everything….I know I’ve been guilty of it too :-S Get what you think is pretty, reflects your style, and fits in your budget. The ones Mrs martin posted I think would be a great compromise between the style you want and the budget.
