Should I incorporate the silver on my wedding invitations into my wedding colors?

by DIY wedding planner on February 6, 2012

My colors now are brown, yellow, and white. I bought these wedding invitation kits at a mega clearance deal. They have this silver border on it and I don’t know what to do to style up the invitation. I’m trying to make it more modern. I’m thinking just a simple ribbon on top punch holed in.

Silver is a neutral color, so it doesn’t have to become a part of your official color scheme.

Plus, even if you use a color somewhere, it doesn’t have to be used elsewhere. If everything flows together nicely, that’s all you need to worry about.

If you want to add a ribbon to the invitations, go ahead. Or apply a little stick-on jewel, or a paper/ribbon “belly band” to hold the invitation and the inserts (RSVP card, and a map or hotel card if you’re sending those) together. Just make sure it all fits in the envelope and won’t get squished, and plus make sure that it won’t require any additional postage.

You could use raffia ribbon and tie one of those cute charms to it, that would spice it up a bit and would be cute too ;)

Have you considered changing your colors to brown, yellow and silver? I think that would be really cute. You don’t have to incorporate the silver in your wedding however.

Also, you could use a brown envelope with a yellow ribbon or punch two holes in the top and put a ribbon through it. Could you show us a picture? Like on flkr or something?

It’s up to you. It would work. Try to picture both and go with what appeals more to your vision.
