    I agree that you really can't go wrong with beach color selection.. with the execption of maybe going all black; but I guess that could even be made to work.

    I personally like the idea of neutrals in a beach wedding; because I like the idea of the beach, water, etc.. being the focus and decor.

    But.. everyone is different. Bright colors really pop on the beach. All the combo's you mentioned would be beautiful.

      I've basically been in the same boat. I don't have a favorite color either. The only thing that helped me FINALLY come to a decision I was 100% comfortable with was looking at swatches. It helps a lot to see things in reality, not on a computer screen or in your head. Since the bridesmaids dresses will play such a big role in how things "pop" during the ceremony, I picked dresses that I liked first, then looked at the colors they came in...from there, I called the shop and made sure they had swatches for all of them. I'm not big on bright, but didn't want things to be too dark either. After much posting and hitting my girlfriends up for thoughts, I've settled on ivory, gold and chocolate. I figure they are also colors that will play well off of what's around us...trees and sand, as well as letting the natural beauty take center stage.

        I love bright colors. These were our colors for our vow renewal in Cabo. I wore a coral dress and the girls wore teal dresses and guys wore matching shirts.
