Unless all your tack is all the same brand, it is doubtful that your tack will match 100%.
Close, as in within a few shades, shouldn't be a big deal. Light/dark bridle, dark/light saddle...it could knock you down a few at a rated type show. At a schooling show, it most likely wouldn't matter.
The school horse I ride has a dressage type bridle, but is a hunter horse. It was most likely the only one around that would fit his big head. I used it until I got my own bridle for him, and the school kids still use it on him. I did well enough still in schooling shows, placing on him.
