My colors are Tiffany blue, Canary Yellow, and Hot pink as an accent color.  I'm having a hard time figuring out how to incorporate the colors without being tacky lol!  Here is the run down.....Bridesmaids (2) are wearing tiffany blue chiffon dresses, Groomsmen (2) wearing Yellow linen shirts with white linen pants.  The gazebo sheers at the ceremony will be yellow.  I didn't think the two colors together would look right.  From pics the yellow is beautiful and my favorite color.  At the reception i would like to incorporate more tiffany blue but how?  Programs are in the tiffany color like my passport invitations.  I decided to buy my own chair sashes and table runners b/c i just couldn't justify $4/sash.  I will have 40 guest.  Here are the options I came up with...

 

1. Buy 20 yellow and 20 tiffany sashes.  then have the 8 tables alternating in color....meaning 4 tables tiffany and 4 yellow.

 

2. Buy all yellow and find another way to incorp the tiffany......but how? without excessivly increasing price.

 

the pink is in the flowers....ok i'm lame  thats all i have.....HELP!

what package option are you going with for the gazebo sheers/decor? are you doing the "exotic decor" option on the lomas site? i'm curious about whether or not they charged you extra for the yellow sheers?

 

thx! :)

Thanks funny...I'm doing almost the opposite.  My BM dresses (2) are Canary chiffon, then most of my decorations (sashes, table cloths, etc.) will be Tiffany.  I'm trying to find other ways to incorporate canary accents. 

 

I'm planning to find Satin Tiffany sashes and table runners, so if you end up incorporating that color more, maybe we could share some costs.  I'm planning for about 50 guests.

 

Also...my Passport inviations were Tiffany :)

I just sent my concierge an email, but when I last checked with him (in October), it was at 60% the first few weeks of May.  I'll let you know what he says now.

I found a web company www.weddingslinen.com and the organza sashes were $0.60/ea in yellow and light aqua ( whichi think is closest to tiffany but let me know what you think). The sashes in satin were $1.09. I sent them an email asking them to let me know which satin sash # code was closest color to tiffany because you can never tell on the computer. They did email me the organza color info for the runners. I am so willing to share since i will most likely not need them any more. Let me know......

 

Then i won't feel bad buying both colors (lol)....Yellow organza sashes for ceremony and then using Tiffany for the reception tables and chairs. I was thinking of putting the bridesmaid bouquets as center pieces and then maybe vases of lemons....something simple. Though these are all ideas not sure yet.  Hard to visualize everything without seeing it in person!

 

Anywhoo sharing the tiffany runners and sashes is a fabulous idea! Let me know....

I've also been trying to think of how to re-use the bridesmaids' bouquets as centerpieces. Do you think they'd just supply us with thin vases to put the in? Is it tacky to re-use? Or if not the bouquets, then other florals, like these hanging bouquets (or balls) that can double as ceremony/reception decor. I hate waste (money or stuff!) haha...

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
