    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,

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.

              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

                  I agree. Do what you want. I'm sure it will be very elegant.

                    I think you should definitely do what you want.

                      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.
