    I agree with most and say no. As long as they are in the same "family" or are similar. I started to be crazy over this, but kept the font on everything the same and in the same general colors.

      My invites ended up being a lot more of a Caribbean greenish-blue (+ dark brown) than I thought I wanted
      My pashmina order is aqua (+ dark brown)
      My logo is probably going to be some blue in between Caribbean blue, aqua, and turquoise + dark brown or red
      My vases are going to be aquaish (I couldn't find turquoise) with red flowers
      My bridesmaid dresses were going to be red (JCrew Flame) but it doesn't look super with my dress which has lots of beige in it, and I gave up on finding turquoise, so it is looking like espresso (JCrew).
      So yeah, the whole finding the right blue thing is ridiculously difficult!

        I am going with the same color scheme....not exactly matching. But like the others have said it's all up to you.

          You should at least carry one of the colors and theme.

            i dont think so.. perhaps the invitation and yoru wedding colors should match but the STD and stuff dont have to. and besides nothing has to do anything. its your wedding... you can wear a potato sack and serve mac and cheese and get married at a water slide park if you wanted to .

              I wouldnt say theyhave to match but I dont know how extreme with the colors you want to be.. Like Lucy said above, if you decide to different colors I would keep with the same tone!

                I agree with others, go with what you like at the time and what will cause you less stress putting it all together. I did white and aqua invites, girls are wearing white and silver and will use aqua writing on favours but the candy station will be multi coloured and the reception will be brown and white leather.

                      I was driving myself crazy trying to match everything as well and then I decided it really didn't matter - our STD's and Invites will match (aqua) but my BM's are wearing black dresses and my flowers are pink - I am going with the starfish thing so that is the one thing that will tie everything together - Good Luck deciding!
