it's from Jcrew and they are always selling this style in whatever the season's colors are. It's the Sophia short dress. And it was on sale for $130 back in January when we got it -- best purchase yet! :) (oh, and thank you!)

We are doing red and light blue. Our "theme" is coral (long family story behind coral - weird, I know) and all the images we have for that are red. I was worried it would get a bit too patriotic but as long as we keep the blue light enough it looks more retro than fourth of july.

I also picked colors after the bridesmaids dresses were selected (navy). It was the only thing that worked for all of them. Then, I selected fuchsia (that's the main color) to go with the bougenvilla that are all around the venue so that I don't have to do a ton of decorating. The girls are wearing navy and carrying fuchsia daisies. The guys are wearing navy pants and white silk shirts. Our wedding invitations are passports (we just finished them - OMG - they are so cool - I'll post them as soon as I can) which happen to be navy in the US. It just all worked out.

Ok ladies, my bridemaids are all wearing different colors of the same dress. They are going to be holding white peonies, but my question is are the colors suppose to be the same as the bridemaids dresses?

The great thing about a destination wedding is that you have already thrown most of the conventional stuff out the window, so you can really do whatever you want! However, I think it's nice when there is at least a subtle theme that runs through your event, whether it's colors, an image like the starfish, a font, a "feel" you know? Maybe instead of having your colors be really consistent, you can have your flowers be the thing that ties the wedding to the reception, or something like that.

Thanks Kash! Yes, I did it myself. I got this huge burst of creativity early on and made a whole bunch of different looking designs. Actually, the ladies of this group helped me decide which one to use back on the old board. It was fun to do!

I don't think that the colors have to be the same at all. Especially since the bm dresses are all different I would think that the most important thing is that the colors all complement one another. I agree with Janet since it's destination alot of the rules are thrown out or made to be broken. Keep us posted!
