We love it Wednesday: Mix 'n Match Envelopes

I love a great color palette–especially when it's woven throughout an entire wedding. From bridesmaids to bouquets, colors create a mood, evoke a feeling and set the tone to a great event.

Most of the wedding invitations I've received in the mail lately have been basic white, with an embossed silver text and a splash of colored ribbon. Yes, they all say wedding, but besides the time and place, they're pretty similar. Now, white can be absolutely fabulous, but if you're using color elsewhere in your wedding, why not carry it through to the envelopes of your invitations? This is an easy, inexpensive way to make your invitations set the mood for your wedding day. 

We love these these sample invitations from Envelopements. Using one color for your Save the Date envelope, and another color for your invitation and RSVP envelopes keep all the pieces within the same color palette, but still with an overall cohesive look. 

Besides, wouldn't a crisp, brightly colored envelope look great against the endless white business envelopes in which all bills arrive?

Coral, cream and honeysuckle – what a beautiful combination!

Love this deep red, gold and turquoise! Different colored patterns add a touch of elegance.
