    our colors are red & turquoise, but we are mixing in other bright colors in the ceremony with the flowers & fans.

    bm dresses = red
    gm / fi attire = tan linen pants, white shirts (still NOT sure what color tie FI will have, maybe red or a lighter shade of turquoise / ocean color)?
    flowers = mixed colored gerbers, each bm will have a solid color, i will have mixed. my maid of honor will have red. we will also have red roses sprinkled on the aisle & have the flower girls carry more (not sure if these will be a diff color, white maybe?)
    tables = white cloths with turquoise napkins, turquoise bows on chairs
    placecards = white starfish tied with red ribbon & placecard with name written in red (or maybe turquoise) - i have to experiment
    fans = bright mixed colors (will be placed on each chair at ceremony)monogram - red/turquoise = will be used throughout, on tag for welcome bag, on program, on guest book, on luminaries

      Our colors are red and light blue.

      STD'S were red and blue on white paper.
      Shoes - mine are red (and I just got them yesterday and they are amazing!)
      I will wear red roses in my hair.
      My bouquet - red roses w blue starfish charm and blue ribbon
      Tables - Red and blue runners on white tablecloth
      Candy bar - all red and blue candy
      Invites - have gotten design yet but will have colors in them
      BM dresses - red and carrying light blue parasols

      That's all I can think of right now.

        This might sound like a stupid question, but it seems like you all are decorating for your reception dinner and stuff...I was kind of leaving that up to the resort.
        Is there something I should be taking into my own hands? Our invitation colors are chocolate brown and blush pink and my dress is ivory and blush pink. The FH will probably wear a tan linen suit with a blush pink shirt as will my son/ringbearer. I was thinking about getting blush pink paper umbrellas, but that's as far as I was going to really decorate. Should I be taking table runners and place cards and all that with me? Hadn't even thought of it.

          I think most everyone is bringing their own decorations to add because it might be expensive over there. But I'm not sure yet...haven't talked to WC yet. I think you can rent those there in mexico too if your hotel doesn't have stuff in the color you want. I think CDM only uses white...so I might add color to that.
          I'm sorry if that didn't help you.

            It's completely up to you in terms of how much you want to decorate beyond what the hotel provides. Dreams in Cabo has the colored linens for me, I'm just choosing the color I want to use. My WC is getting my centerpieces for me, but I'm making my own luminarias and placecards (starfish). I'm bringing all the stuff for OOT bags, fans, programs, guestbook, placecards, luminarias with me and letting the hotel & WC mostly help supply the rest. How many people are you having?? I am having a big wedding (80-100) people so I want to coordinate the placecards / table setting on my own. If you are having a smaller wedding and don't need to necessarily figure out table settings prior, then I'm sure you can have the hotel supply placecards for you. check with your hotel WC.

              My wedding colours will be coral and tan - and I may add in a sage green.

              Bridesmaids dresses will be coral and groom will wear a tan suit. Groomsmen will wear tan pants and white shirts. Invitations will be in coral and tan. Other than that I am not too sure on flowers or decorations yet. I just think coral will look so pretty against the turquoise ocean.

                    I am not really sticking with any scheme. My BM dresses are going to be pink (tropical pink) and then the rest is sort of falling into place. The invites are more of a Rainforest green and we trying to stay eco-friendly.
