    Hi Everyone - this is so exciting, I'am planning my wedding, in 2011 not sure if June or October - in Mayan Riviera, im stuck on picking great beach colours for my bridal party, I love Coral and turquoise but not sure if that goes well, cant find any real wedding photos of Coral colour themed weddings. We are trying to keep it stylish aswell. Hope you can help.
    Thanks :)

          I think it's a great combo! Check out polyvore.com They have a great 'look builder' area where you can put dresses, shoes, accessories, etc together to see your colors. It's pretty fun! I think they're called idea boards Not sure, I never made one :)

              Do you mean real coral (the deep red), or the color coral (the pinky/peach)?

              I have seen several weddings with turquoise and the deep red real coral color. They were beautiful. It was in magazines though. That was my original color combination but I have so much turquoise in my life, I decide to do something different. I was also worried about finding flowers to go with that combo.

                  Congrats and Welcome!! I've also had trouble picking colors. As of today I'm going with turquoise but not too sure about a secondary color... coral definately goes though. Here's a website that may help a little The Perfect Palette

                  I read a blurb from "Destination Weddings for Dummies" and some colors that they say are great for a tropical weddings are lemon, lime, tangerine, hot pink and turquoise.

                  Good Luck!!

                      Welcome to the forum! I think those colors will work just fine! I feel like I've seen those in combination before, just don't remember where! Good luck planning!
