Hello ladies! My mom has graciously offered to DIY our invites, and we're trying to decide on the color scheme. For the wedding itself, we want to do hot pink, mango and lime. We're using cardstock and pockets from Cards and Pockets. I personally love the hot pink and mango ones, but FI thinks there should be a complementary color (like the green) in there. We could add a line green ribbon-- maybe organza, or grosgrain? My mom likes both-- she thinks that the blue and sand colors are more beachy though. Your thoughts?

FYI there will be a real invitation at some point-- this is just to get an idea of the colors, materials, fonts etc.

I like the mango and pink. At first I thought I liked the other ones, but they are a little plain. Maybe if she found a more bright blue/teal to pop. Are you going to carry these colors through your wedding though, cause the mango and pink might be a bit challenging.

I have to go with the second colors. First ones are a bit loud...Second can use a little boast of green...

 

I can see why the first set of colors is nice, but you can see why a male wouldn't want those..more female oriented.

I love them! Especially the mango & pink ones! I am actually reconsidering my colours to mango and pink. I think it is so fresh and tropical! Add a Lime accent and it will pull together your colours perfectly!

Yes, we are carrying the tropical colors through to the wedding. My inspiration is the tropical blooms of that part of Florida, like orchids, bougainvillea, poinciana, hibiscus etc. Also citrus fruit. There is an awesome layout in the latest Martha Stewart Weddings magazine that has a similar palette. Click on the one that says Tropical Punch.

 

It's funny-- my FI is not opposed to the pink and mango. His art-student self just wants to apply some color theory to our scheme, and add something complementary.

 

My heart is definitely pulling for the brighter scheme. I know it's not for everyone, but I love color.

 

I did hear back from my mom-- she likes the fuschia and mango ones too.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
