Wedding Invitations

Wednesday, April 22, 2009
Ok, so I've finally shown you all my venue & now I'd like your opinions on these invitations. I found these on the fabulous Etsy (seriously, how did I not know about this site before?). These are from the lovely collection at TrueViolet.

Oviously, the colors aren't right but I purchaed the sample set & she's going to customize it for me. The boy & I disagree on how to use the colors. Our colors are black, white & deep red, maybe a little purple as well. SO that being said, I was thinking black & white background with deep red frame & black font (maybe our names in red) & black envelopes. The boy (who used to design signs) thinks the black & white will be too dark & the frame detail won't stand out enough. I see his point, however, those are our colors so how else could we do it? He thinks we can go gray in the background. That doesn't make sense to me since it's not one of our colors.

Anyway, I'm rambling. I convo'd the designer & asked her opinion so we'll see what she comes up with. I just think they go so nicely with our venue. I hope they are as nice as I think they are!

I don't think we'll used an RSVP card & asked her to make it a reception card with the address & our website info.

I'll let you all know when I get them but until then, feel free to give your opinions.

I like! I also like your design..I think the red will stand out fine! You could also do purple as the boarder and have the font in the deep red.

Don't you love Esty? You can seriously find the cutest stuff. These invites are great, I don't know what to tell you about the color scheme design but it must be a tough battle with your fiance having formerly designed signs. :) I'm sure they will come out beautifuly.

I think the black and white backround is great and the frame red. Thoses colors as well as the damask print are very in and glamourous i love it.

I think your color idea will work. Is there a way she can mock-up a sample for you, maybe just in Photoshop (Color Replace is a lovely feature)? Maybe he'll come on board if he can see what it really looks like.

My advice would be not to get hung up on colors. Go with what looks good, within the scheme and mood of the colors you've chosen.
