I am in a bit of a predicament here. I need to order my invites ASAP but FI and I cannot make a definitive decision. We are torn between two different invites. He slightly favors one over the other, but keeps saying to just choose what will make me happy (it does not help that he hasn't seen the samples in person since he is away with the military for another month and I cannot wait that long to order them). I asked my mom for her opinion as well and she also likes them both and did not lean one way or the other (so much for mother knows best...she wants me to make my own decision). Decisions do not come easy for me, and usually when I know, I just know what is right, but it just has not happened in this case. I've been sleeping on this decision for about 2 weeks now and have decided to ask this community your opinion. Invite one I describe to myself as one that matches my colors and the look of what I was going for (and was actually the first invite I saw). Invite two is traditional, but slightly out of the box (black/chalkboard style) but very simple with a traditional border and reminds me more of my venue than my colors/style I was envisioning and I may even like slightly more (this is the one FI slightly favors). Pricing is the same for both so that is not a factor in deciding.
My question I guess is do I go matchy to my BM's dress colors & what I chose for linens, etc or do I just go with something a little different and not worry about it? I am hesitant about Invite two because I can hear the eyes rolling in my family ("She really chose a black colored invite, ugh!")...but at the same time, , we are not the most "traditional" of people.
I also did not want to disclose too much about the details of the design or post links of pictures of the invites because I wanted your honest opinions about going with colors/style vs going with something a little different that FI and I both like.
Should I just flip a coin? Did anyone else have a hard time or is it just me? HELP!
