Don't want the palm tree or starfish theme!

Recommended Posts

There's a girl on the knot Ashley that used Damask (although I cant remember if she was DW or not..not that it matters) and it was GORGEOUS. I say go for it!

You should use whatever design you like. Your wedding should reflect your taste and not what you think your wedding should look like. I think the colors you mentioned sound very pretty. Very calming and soothing. I love it. That's the great thing about DW's you can make them however you like.

LOL, weddings are becoming less and less traditional. I think you have more options with a destination wedding. I was more focused on the color than the theme. Since, the ceremony was in tropical garden. I played on the different shades of green in the background. It's your day. What ever you choose, make sure you (lol and the hubby to be) are happy with the decision. You don't want any regrets.

 

Good Luck,

J

I was thinking of doing either black or brown with cream int he pattern with accents of pink and green. I need a lot of opinions on this one!
Hi Ashley,

I am moving this thread to from the Jamaica sub-forum to the appropriate sub-forum. Please be more mindful of where you start threads as the Mods are working hard to keep the forum clean and organized.

Thanks,
Alyssa

I am with everyone else on here. Do what you want. :) I love the colors also, they sound perfect for what you want.

 

I didn't really want a beach theme either. We are going to use travel as our main theme and use the compass rose. We are trying for the classic Indiana Jones old world/jungle look mixed with a bit of 1930/1940's Hollywood elegance.

 

Maybe you could do the Hollywood elegance/travel mix like we are. Carla wink.gif

I really like your idea of using damask decor. It is really beautiful and elegant! Just because you are having a beach wedding doesn't mean you have to have anything beach related as your decor! Go with what you love.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
