its easy to become a bridezilla... youve evnisioned this perfect day for years and years since you were a kid im sure and all the while you have had all the details meticulously organized in your folder and you so desperately want everything to work out perfectly. well the little hurdles and glitches arise like they always will because nothing is ever perfect and you just have to take a deep breath and realize that nothing ever works out like it should and the only really important thing is that you and your love are finally getting married. i see it time and time and time again. no one will notice the slight difference in shades of blue. ive seen brides blow up the day of their wedding over things like no boutonnieres for the groomsmen and other things that no one will ever notice but you. so just put those little things out of your mind and focus on whats important . the love you two share and the love and support of everyone there :)

I had a similar problem when I got "cranberry" printed ink. I thought that meant dark pink and it ended up being red. I was initially sad but then I just decided it didn't matter and got over it and saved a lot of stress! And honestly, I don't think a single person noticed or cared!

jean-marcus - the problem is actually that I didn't envision anything before my wedding, so I'm rushing to figure out what I like, and I'm pretty picky and usually can't rush on these things. But my home is all blues and reds and dark browns, so I figured I'd stick with that.

 

JANET1111 - Funny how your invitations AND your BM dresses ended up looking red. I LOVE the reds of the dresses, as I've mentoined before, even if they are only red in photos, ha. Oh well!

cheese_diva - I stole the invite idea from you b/c I loved yours from your photos :). Were yours greener blue in real life than in the photos? So Brittany already sent me what she calls "Tiffany Blue", but what I really think is "Caspian Blue", since Tiffany Blue doesn't actually exist. She did send off white vs. white samples for the actual printed layer and for the labels so I could try to decide on that. Were yours something different? I want my rsvps back by end of February, so I don't think I have much time to ask for more samples.

Belize is more of a blue/green (like Caspian). We chose Aruba which is more of a blue/aqua tone...

 

Our sample came incorrect because her original paper samples had the names swapped. I was a little concerned making a decision cuz I wasn't sure what was what after we got our sample and Brittany sent me over some samples just to make sure.

 

Our final paper choices:

 

Pocket- Aruba

Accent- Coco (dark brown)

Cane Paper

Accent- Aruba

Printed- Solar White

 

Some of our RSVP postcards did get a little shredded from the post office machines but all were readable.. besides many guests didn't return (grrr!) lol

I agree with all of the above. Just pick whichever one you think is closest and then let it go. You have many more decisions to make and things to worry about and I think Janet's advice was perfect!

 

I'm sure whatever you get will be beautiful and no one (even your designy friends) will question it - they'll be too busy having fun at your wedding!

cheese_diva - wow, you picked Aruba - that explains things! It is much more of a blue than the Caspian/Belize! Maybe I should go back to the store again to check it out. Thanks for everyone's help!
