Buy darker ones. If you are not competing it doesn't matter what colours they are.
IMO martingales are tacky, regardless of their colour. Unless its a "horse-sport" required thing, as soon as I see a rider with one it immediately turns me off the horse/rider. It might be judgmental but I just see so many of them used, forcing a horses head down and confusing signals. Pretty much all the horses without one go much, much better.
IMO slightly wrong coloured stoppers aren't really a worry.
