    I was wondering should the style of the STD's match the invites?

    I designed a fun boarding pass STD but the invites we are looking at are pocket fold, totally different look and a bit more formal. Does that matter? I know the invite is suppose to set the mood of the wedding but should the STD also? Thanks, Carla

      i think as long as there is some coordination with fonts, colors and perhaps your logo then it is totally fine!

        I don't think it really matters. I'm doing a fun STD and considering a fun or more formal invite.
        You can pretty much do anything you'd like.

        I don't think it really matters...DW are so fun and dont follow the rules anyway! I'm using a boarding pass STD and a pocketfold invitation that is more "formal" but still tropical in theme............the color scheme ties it together....

          My STD and invite only carried the same color theme, but they were totally different.

            I am planning on going a totally different feel for the invite but maintaining the metallic paper. The paper companies I have spoken with have told me the do not need to match, so I am hoping they are right

              My STD & invitations are going to be completely different. I think you can go either way on this. I wanted to do a fun/casual STD that incorporated our dogs in the pic dressed up in sombreros, but I want our invitations to be more formal, yet fun. I'm sure it would be nice if everything matched, but I think you can go outside the box with a DW! That's just my 2 cents :)

                I think they can be completely differnt. We went the more formal route for std's cuz I didn't know any better and then used the boarding pass for our invites. People still have them hanging on their fridges cuz they had never seen anything like it before.

                I would stick with the same theme though. Like my std and invite's both used hibiscus' and our wedding colors - orange and blue (and pink was added to the invites).

                  We're doing Boarding passes for our STD's and pocket folds for invites. Both will be different. The STDs will be brighter, tropical colors, and the invites are blue, white and tan. I don't think anyone would care if they match or not.
