    Hello! I picked teal/ocean blue for my BM dresses and now not sure what to do for centerpieces, etc. Here's the other part: I don't want to bring them all down with me with the new bagagge rules, etc. I was thinking I could make menus, placecards and bring those. I am pretty sure I can get ahold of blue napkins... but what to do about centerpieces? What would be a cool color scheme?

    Thank you for any suggestions!

      I'm just getting centerpieces done by the resort. I haven't gave it much thought yet. I think they do one centerpieces with a tall vase filled with blue colored water and floating flowers on top. Would your venue be able to make you up something. I'm also going to bring the placecards and menus with me to add my colors.

        Hmmm....You could do like a teal and chocolate color scheme. Let me think a bit more.

          What color flowers are they going to carry? I was thinking of doing the oppisite of the color wheel, like deep orange and deep pink.

            A Coarly Orange or hot pink would be pretty and there are a lot of flowers you could get with those!

              Depending on the blue you could always do an orange or yellow...something that contrasts. Or you could possibly do a coral. I found these fabric prints and added it to my inspiration file b/c I am using blue as well.

              If you wanted to do a more subtle color then a pale pink or yellow is always pretty. You can find flowers in all of these colors pretty easily for the centerpieces.

                That's what I was kind of thinking too....

                This is one of the BM Dresses, in teal:

                Maybe these flowers with orange added for the bouquets:

                  We did aqua and red and it looked fantastic :) Centerpieces could also be blue stones (provided by hotel) with small seashells or a few flowers and a candle... Lots of ideas!

                    those are really pretty. I was thinking of pink and orange roses and no green filler.

                      I was stuck on the same thing. I think I am going to do Navy Blue and for the flowers just keep it classic with white and maybe a touch of green. For the tables I was going to make some blue runners for the tables... but after logically thinking about it, I think that is going to be too bulky and heavy to take down there. Now I think I am going to just do blue squares of fabric under the hurricane candle holder the resort provides and scatter rose petals and shells.. that is the plan for now.. but this forum is always so full of great ideas, so we shall see :)
