    My niece fell in love with Gwen Stefani's gown, with the hot pink fade on the bottom. She's having a dress made with that same color and wanted something that would go with it, so chose orange, which is also very Mexican and tropical. It seems to be very popular right now.

      I'm doing fuschia. I've never been a huge pink person but I love it for a tropical wedding, plus I wanted to keep it simple with one colour. My MOH is getting married (not DW) next spring and her colours are navy blue and orange which can be hard to work with (they'll look amazing at her wedding though!). I wanted to make it easy on myself, lol.

        I'm going with Brown as my main color with Fuchsia and Orange as the accent colors. I think the Fuchsia and Orange really play off of the Brown nicely. Also or reception site is mostly white so the colors will really pop.

          My wedding colors are yellow & white...I chose them because these are the main colors that come to mind for me when I think of a beach wedding...I kind of chose them on a whim but I couldn't be happier with my choice!!:)

            I just wanted something really classic and clean, so I'm going with black BM dresses. So my wedding will be black and white with hints of greens in the flowers and decorations. I'm so excited!

              Also, the Knot has picture albums of weddings in every color - flip through and see if one really catches your eye.
              Hi, I love your idea! I may consider it...lime green is a great color for a beach wedding!

                This I think was the hardest part cause we kept changing it.

                I started looking through different photos of peoples weddings online. It took me almost a month but I kept coming back to the pictures that were mostly orange with accents of pink. My FI suggested using a sand and orange color scheme with accents of pink. Once we saw the three colors together we just knew it was perfect! It was that light bulb moment when everything just clicks. Carla

                  I started with my bridesmaids dresses - I chose fuchsia because I love the color pink & I thought it would look amazing against the blue water and green palm trees. Then I think I am going to add orange and possibly some lime green and blue accents. I'm not 100% sure. It might be too busy, but I haven't ironed everything out just yet. I want vibrant tropical colors!

                    I wanted really vibrant colors too, but FI wasn't going for it. He would have everything pure white if given the option! Anyhow, I made a whole bunch of color samples in Photoshop and and had him pick the ones he like the best from each hue. We ended up with an entire color pallet of pastels, but I'm good with that.

                      My BM's are wearing brown strapless dresses. I'm having orange and fuchsia sashes made for them.
