One of the biggest decisions I make when it comes to my wedding invitations is choosing the right colors. I’m not talking about the colors of the papers, but the colors of the invitations themselves. I look at the colors of the paper and the colors of the envelopes and I look at the colors of the event itself and I decide to go with what looks good and what doesn’t.
I’ve been known to forget about color schemes entirely and just go with the colors that I think look good on the invitations or in the invitation envelope. For instance, I’ll go with a black event invitation and white paper. My fiancé and I, though, always choose a pale pink invitation and a pale blue envelop. That’s because those colors look great on the invitation and the envelope.
This is a great example of something that works just fine for me, but other people may not see it the same way. It is simply a matter of personal preference. You can have a color scheme that works for you, but you don’t have to play by someone else’s rules.
A wedding invitation doesn’t just matter because it is personal; it also affects who gets invited. If I want invites from the same people to all be the same color (i.e., pink and pale blue), then I can set a color scheme for my invitations. But when I want to invite people for a wedding I am looking for the same color (i.e., black and white) or a different color (i.e., pink and pale red).
That is why we have our style guide. It is our list of color preferences to make sure we are consistent with each other. It is the difference between us and the other people who are color blind. Our style guide was created to try and prevent this sort of thing from happening, but the thing is that people who are color blind use color blind styles in their invitations. Why? Because they don’t want to be put in the same basket with other people who are color blind.
The more people who use color blind styles in their invitations, the more people there are who are color blind who have no idea what they are doing. They don’t know that their invitations are supposed to look like a typical color blind invitation and their guests will be staring at them thinking, “If I would have known that I would have asked for this instead of that.
That is a pretty common mistake. The more you color blind your invitations, the more people you invite. It’s almost as if the color blind style invites are the only ones that are being used. People are going to be thinking, “Oh my god, I’m going to be all dressed up, and my invitations are going to be color blind.
That last line is pretty much a quote from a recent study by the University of Pennsylvania. The study found that people tend to over-react to invitations that are color blind. Just think: someone might get excited about the wedding, and you might be thinking, I’ll get the invites to look as pretty as I can.
The study’s findings were supported by the fact that people tend to be more likely to give an invitation that is an even tone than an even tone invitation. It’s like if you give a color-blind invitation to someone that is going to be on a diet and looking at the color of your invitations, you might do better than if you were to give an invitation that is an even tone.
It is interesting to note that when people are asked to write an invitation, they tend to write something that is a shade of the color of the invite, which supports the idea that tone is a major influencer on how people perceive an invitation.
