So, I'm making all the paper stuff for our wedding. It took me forever to decide how I wanted to design the invitations, but I finally chose a really neat border. I will be using ivory/cream/offwhite recycled paper, so it'll have specks. My colors by default are ivory and brown - ivory bc I'm wearing my mom's dress, and that's what color it's turned, and brown because it's fall, and I can't imagine red, orange, or yellow dresses looking good.. and I like brown.. and brown can be worn again :cool:
Anyway, I'm going to use a print shop (toner). I have designs for invitations, reply cards, thank you cards, and programs.
My question: Will it look odd to have everything printed in black only? I know black and white is classic, and my designs look good, but will it be weird to not have brown on the invite if it's a main color? What about if I addressed the (ivory) envelopes with a brown marker? Do people really analyze invitations that much, or am I just being stupid?
I'm one of those people who thinks black and brown go together just fine.. I know a lot of people don't agree, though, and I don't have much fashion sense.. so maybe y'all can help! :cool:
My other idea was to print the copy I'll save in color, cause that's what I like, and print everything else in black :D
The only reason I'm putting any real thought into this is because I really like my design.. I could care less about the rest of the planning, actually..
