Different tack color

Okay so my saddle is a more red brown oakbark color and I have been looking for a new bridle and I finally found a bridle I really like the quality of for a price I can afford but the color is a little bit different than my saddle color. It says it's chestnut an it looks more like a medium brown color. Will that color bridle look silly with my saddle and girth which are more red brown?

it might but try bringing your saddle in and remember you can always use oil to darken tack if you need to!

Well I'm trying to order a bridle online. This is the bridle I am looking at:
Northrun Figure 8 Bridle | Maryland Tack, Inc.
I think it would look okay with my saddle.

So this is still kinda eating at me. I really want this bridle. It has all the features I want and for a price I can afford. But the color just worries me. Also I'm looking at getting this running martingale:
Rodrigo Pessoa Flat Running Martingale
This is pretty much exactly the color of the rest of my tack but I'm just afraid the bridle I posted earlier is going to stand out too much.

My saddle is a medium-brown shade, & my saddle is a darker chocolate brown. The contrast doesn't bother me, but I'm also not doing A-rated hunters or something like that where it would matter. If it was Newmarket tack paired with dark brown, I'd say that might be too much of a contract, but I personally wouldn't have a problem purchasing that bridle if the price and quality are what you are looking for.

Okay so I was just looking around and I found this bridle:
Hunter and Jumper Bridles - Marcel Toulouse Raised Figure 8 Bridle with Raised Reins
This one also looks very nice. Does anyone know about this brand? And would the color of this one look better with my other tack? Also is the chocolate or cognac shown? And which should I get?
