Cant decide...ugh! Black or Tan?!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, I have a lil dilemma and was hoping for some input; May be silly but I just dontknow!!!

 

My main color for my beach wedding in Cabo is turquoise, I am not sure if I should have black as the accent color or tan....

I think i want my bridesmaids in black dresses with turquoise flowers and perhaps a blue ribbon somewhere on the dress as an accent, and then the guys in black linen pants and turquoise shirts....Hubby would be in a white linen suit with turquoise shirt...

Do u think its alright to have black on the beach?!

 

Or should i have the ladies in turquoise dresses, and the guys in tan pants and turqoiuse shirts?? why cant i deicidehuh.gif??

I think I prefer the black but want to make sure black looks good on the beach!

 

Thanks :)

I would suggest to go with the tan instead of black.. as black on the beach and under the hot sun wouldn't be fun :)

 

I would do turquoise dresses for the ladies, tan linen pants for the guys with turquoise shirts..

 

Black would look nice on the beach, but I think tan would suit it more and be less "hot" for the wearers of black :)

 

But in the end its up to you, and what you want!

Black will limit the material for the menswear. You want to consider the comfort of the wedding party so linen is a good way to go. It is much easier to find tan/khaki linen pants then to find black. If your groomsmen are in different areas of the country, the dye lot will also matter as black can vary more than the neutrals.

In my opinion the tan works better for teh beach. I think it's cooler for your attendants and also just looks better against the sand and surf.

 

The black will make it look more like a black tie affair if that's waht you are going for.

Hello!! Good question. I know it is hard to decide...cuz I keep thinking differently. I just want to let you know that we are having a black & white wedding...with an accent colour. My girls are wearing black dresses & the guys are going to be in black suits. I think the look is very classy!!! I was wondering about the tan myself but I think I will stick with my original idea. It will look nice in pictures, as well as being different from everyone else!! I hope this helps!!

Well in my opinion...I think both ideas are really great and I do nto think that the colors are really going look 'bad' against the sand and surf based on what colors you have chosen.

 

I would be worried about comfort...if you wedding ceremony is only going to be short, on the beach and then going under cover for the rest then black is fine for all...but if everything is under the heat of the sun then I would go for the lighter tan colors for pants and dresses.

 

The way I choose was think about it as if you were the one who had to wear the clothes...will you be hot? will it be comfortable? etc.

 

Good luck on deciding...

I don't think it's an issue of looking good or bad.

 

You need to consider availability, comfort, etc.

 

I also think black gives the impression of formality. I wouldn't choose black for an afternoon wedding with a casual reception.

 

But, it is your wedding, so you need to go with what make you and FI the happiest!

 

Good Luck!

Personally, I would use tan. Black is a beautiful and simple color that looks great all the time, but it might be too much of a contrast with the light sand and bright sun. Not to mention sweaty! But, if you choose a tea length flowy dress then it shouldn't be a problem!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
