Are you going for a clean cohesive theme that ties everything together - from your Save the Dates to your thank you notes? Or are you having fun with different elements and accents in your invitations? 💌

    My invites and RSVP's are a set. I'm still deciding if i'm going to order the thank you notes. I probably will

    They will be the same. I used Zazzle for our invitations and since it wasn't a suite, I actually had to transfer and rework the design to add on to other stationary. So much fun and now I have a suite!

    Ours will all be similar so it’s cohesive. We are trying to ensure all of our paper products tie in together.

    Haven't ordered yet, but I all want them to tie in to the theme as much as possible. Our STDs will probably be a little less theme-oriented than the invitations.

    All invitations will be the same with our engagement picture on them.

    The colors will be similar but I don't think they need to be exactly matching.

    Our Save the Date colors mostly match what our invitations/RSVP cards. We haven't decided on the thank you notes.

    Matching, my sister designed the whole suite for us and will design the thank you cards. Our save the dates were Christmas themed because that is when we sent them out.

    Our save the dates and invitations have matching colors and themes (art deco) but not the exact same design.

    We're mixing it up. FH designed our STD, which has a totally different color scheme than our invitations.

    I wanted him to have some fun with decision-making, and he really enjoyed creating the STD!

    My invitations & RSVPs came together as a set so they are matching. My STDs and thank you cards are different.

    Matching for sure with my invitations I created them myself. They will also carry the same florals and greenery that will be in the wedding.

    Our Save the Dates will have one of our engagement photos and the invitations will most likely be something simple. As long as it looks nice I'm not to concerned with making everything match...people are just going to end up throwing them away.

    Mixing it up. We had fun with our STD's using engagement photos and really showing our personalities. We went more elegant with our invitation suite. And we personalized our thank you cards to be simple and sweet.
