Was hoping for peoples opinion on this... Up until now I have been very stuck on having the colour green all the way through the theme of the wedding. My plan was to use green and ivory for the wedding invitations and green for the bridesmaid dresses.
This weekend I went shopping for bridesmaid dresses with my two bridesmaids. We are all really mad about this particular dress style and while you can get it in green, you can only get it in a paler green than I was originally thinking of. The dress that they tried on was a deep purple - a very nice colour that suited them both. Now I'm wondering if I should go with the purple but I still want to stick with green on the invitations. Is that ok? Will it look okay?
Please help as I need to order the dresses soon!
I wouldnt even notice if someone had different colour bridesmaid dresses to invites.
My bridesmaid dresses are deep purple and my invites are pearl with a pink ribbon...
I wouldnt worry about it and go with the bridesmaid dresses you like!
I agree with smileyb2b. It really wouldn't matter if they aren't the same colour. If you start stressing out about things matching you'll drive yourself crazy.
No-one will notice. Or you could have dresses made up in that style in the colour you want if its going to bother you?
Seriously? You're worried about invitations matching dresses?!
I must be missing a bridal girly gene or something...
While it is nice to have every thing matching, its not really that important. I doubt very many people notice any ways. I say go with what ever suits you your self! Its your day after all
It doesnt matter at all if they dont match, most people forget what the invitation looks like by the time the wedding day comes around!!
I am a matching person , and I have co-ordinated everything but each one to their own, so I really wouldnt worry in the slightest....its your special day and its your decision!! Enjoy xxx
Thank you all so much for your quick responses. Delighted with the feedback. I think I'll go now and talk to my bridesmaids and see what they think of the idea of going with the purple instead. If they like the colour, which I'm sure that they will, I think I'll go with that.
Definitely don't think it matters - I've more or less picked my invites already (and have posted save the date cards) but have zero idea of what colour bm dresses I'm going to have yet!
Really don't think people will notice.
cool i wanted to ask this question too!!!
