    Ok this may sound totally insane but I am working on my DIY invites and going between two colors. Please keep in mind I am in the very early stages as I cant make up my mind of colors. Do the invite colors need to match my flowergirl and MOH dress colors which are now the colors of our wedding? Or will no one know but me? Please help!! First here are the girls dresses:

    i like number 2. no, they need not match, but for me, picking wedding colors was about incorporating a theme throughout, so ALL my stuff matches.

      Either one looks like it matches to me!

      You can do whatever you want though.

      Our BM dresses are champagne but our accent colors and DIY stuff is aqua and coral.

          My wedding colors are pink and green so I'm partial to that invite, and I incorporated those colors into my invitations as well. I think you can do whatever colors you want to though.

              I say do whatever you want! Either one looks good and seems to match in its own way!

                I like #2. There's no rule that says they have to match, but I like to give people a sneak peek. I have also asked our guests to dress in colors that will compliment the ocean pallet, so this way they have an example. Our invites are a little darker than the aqua color that we are using so they don't technically match, but are in the same family.

                  You don't have to "match" everything but I think having an overall color palette is nice. My grandma ended up scrapbooking my stuff for me, so had it not all matched, it would have shown in the scrapbook. As for anyone else noticing, probably not though. Another thing- some photogs have girls bring their invites and take pics of the rings next to it,etc. Just those details shots. If that's something you like, I'd consider that too.

                  Oh and I meant to say- I LOVE the MOH dress. So beautiful and tropical looking. I also love the pink and green invite. I'd go with that one.

                    I like number 2 regardless if it matches. I think the colors pop better!
