    Ok I was having a really hard time deciding on color combinations. I bought bridesmaid dresses that I LOVE but the are a very hard color to match. I originally wanted the guys ties and chair sashes to be the same color as their dresses but I eventually gave up when I couldnt find anything. So after all that this is what I came up with:

    Girls dresses (green-ish color)

    My Dress

    Groom- linen suit (pants and jacket), white dress shirt and brown tie.
    Groomsmen-the same minus the jacket
    Click the image to open in full size.

    ...and the tie is chocolate brown

    Sorry about the link it wouldnt let me copy the pic

    So the plan is to have brown chair sashes on white chairs to match the guys ties...do you think this is too boring? Also what color sandles would you get the bridesmaids to wear on their feet? This has for sure been the toughest part of planning so far. Thanks soooooooooooo much in advance for your thoughts :)

      I think that would be really pretty-not boring What about getting the bm's a silver, gold, or bronze colored sandal-that way you don't have to find that exact color bc that might be a pain. I originally wanted everything to match too and then I realized it wasn't possible. Everything you have picked out looks great!

        Everything looks great! I think a gold or bronze shoe would go best with your brown accents. What color are you thinking for your bouquets? You could always add another accent color in those to spice things up if you're afraid it's not colorful enough.

          I agree with the sandals as well as the accent color!

          You are doing exactly what I did with my colors. my girls had turquoise and my guys had brown. I found sandals for my girls that were brown and had a shell flower on the toe that was kind of bronze colored...I'm sure you'll find somehting. I liked how our colors blended, I'm sure you'll love yours. I don't think it's boring at all! I did think of adding a bright orange at one point though but in the end I figured...the simpler the better!

            I agree with Desiree (lol.. as always) - I would absolutely do a metallic shoe as your accent color. Then perhaps echo that metallic in jewelry and some other small accents in the wedding (candle holders, etc). Personally, I love natural color combinations for a beach wedding; allows for the setting to really shine.

              Agree! I would personally go with silver though to match those dresses.. I dont think turquoise and gold really go together but thats my personal opinion! in the end its not going to make a difference if their shoes fit in with the brown/turquoise theme ya know?
              btw, my FI and his groomsman are wearing the same as yours, minus the brown tie!

                I think that sounds absolutely stunning! Are you getting married on the beach? If you are getting married on the beach, perhaps barefoot sandals.

                  I don't think the colors are boring. I agree with some of the girls above....also remember the color in your flowers will really pop out! Sounds fantastic.
