    I don't even know where I am getting married, LOL. My BFF wants to do a salamander/burnt orange color. I love pink, but it can be pretty sketchy with that color. I don't want a Pepto-Bismal theme.

      We just stumbled into our color scheme. Since we aren't having a bridal party, just our two children (9 &2) stand up with us, we wanted to decide what to have them wear first. Luckily I found the Island Importer website so I could order a shirt and a dress that would coordinate (not so easy to do when the ages are so different).

      I ordered the color sample swatch from them to determine which ones we liked, I gravitated towards the blues/aquas the most, but my fiance was quick to point out that with the ocean and the sky right behind us on the beach, that would be A LOT of blue in the pics. So we asked our friend who is going to be our photographer and she suggested a contrasting color that would "pop", so we went with a beautiful coral color. My son will wear a shirt in the color and my daughter a dress.

      After that I knew that coral would be incorporated and since there was so much blue with the water and the sky, I decided on a blue as the other color (Carolina blue since I am a former Tarheel).

      I had my bouquet done by wedideas.com and they created a tropical bouquet that has bright pink, yellow, and orange/coral in it.

      The invites and the welcome notes, favor tags, etc. are all composed of a blue or coral shade.

              I am constantly changing my mind about this, but at the moment I am thinking of honeydew and a light orange (maybe with a hint of gold to it). We'll see if I actually stick with that though :P Good luck in choosing. It's tough!

                    I am considering fuchsia, orange and lime green now. I dont really want pink b/c it can look too girly, but nothing with red in it looks good so I think I will use pink with the bright orange. Its so hard to decide!

                      I guess I will be going with bright pink. I would love some suggestions for another color to accent the pink
                      Hi there, Daroc78!

                      I am using a bright fuschia (bright pink) and bright orange with accents of lime green as our color palette!
