    The blog is out - this mid-month I talked about different beach themed ideas, as we are on the beach, I thought it was appropriate .

      Thanks! Looks great.

      Question: My 3 girls (sisters) are wearing different styles of this color (teal) dress:

      Any good ideas about flowers/decor on how to incorporate teal? Now I am kind of wishing I picked orange or pink!

        Oh, I don't think you should wish that! That's a beautiful dress and color .... there are A LOT of color combinations you could do with teal - a lot depends on what you personally like!

        I think teal and chocolate brown (and white) are still a strong color combination
        My favorite combination right now is a teal color with like a mango or a pappaya - I've seen this pop-up somewhat recently and I think it could look really amazing.
        Teal and red is also a good combination.
        Teal and white with an accent orange could be really pretty.
        Teal and lime green - another good combo!!

        You have lots of options!! As far as decor goes - well, that's a little trickier because I really think that is dependent on what kind of wedding you are going for - something really beachy, something classical, something exotic, something tropical, something more "mexican", etc.

            Thanks! I have a few Ideas. I am thinking gerber daisies for the girls. I like orange, pink and red... I saw orange and pink together and liked it, I was thinking of going to a florist to see if I liked it with the red- it could give it that unique look. My other idea was to have them each have their own color (one with pink, one red, one orange) and then my bouquet could either be a combination of colors or white? The tables are trickier to incorporate the blue. I am going for fun, tropical, simple. I could always make a couple of table runners... hmmm....

              Just based on the little information you gave me, my instinct would be to do something like this:

              Your bouquet would be super colorful with the reds, pinks and oranges. Your bridesmaid's would have all-white bouquets with colorful ribbons (perhaps one color per each bridesmaid - not sure).

              The the tables, (again just relying on the information given), I think glass fish bowls filled with water and dyed teal blue with gerbers floating in it would look nice on the white tablecloth - then I would go for a teal colored napkin OR wrap the napkins in teal ribbons with a flower in the middle (perhaps alstromeria in the colors of pink, red and orange). If you wanted to really make this idea pop, I would add a bamboo runner under the fish bowls to really give it a more "tropical" air.

              Another direction to take it would to use to ginger, birds of paradise and alstromeria for your bouquet and also incorporate those flowers into your table centerpieces. This would really make the design very "tropical" in feel.

                      Thank you so much for your advice! I have been in Houston for a week without a computer so I appologize for the delay in response. Another question: How can you do the fishbowl idea without it looking cheesy or cheap I know there is a fine line between this a chic but it can be done~ You are so sweet for helping me out! Anytime someone on here is looking for a planner/designer on here I am referring them to you! You are awesome.
