Tropical wedding colors?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm just getting starting with the wedding planning (been engaged less than a month!) but I thought coming up with color ideas might be a fun way to start.

 

We're getting married in the Caribbean somewhere--I'm favoring Jamaica--and I wanted a nice tropical color theme.

 

I think one of my first choices is turquoise. What color goes with it? Orange? Pink?

 

I was also toying with the idea of doing a peacock feather color palette (turquoise and royal blue probably) but I don't know if that would work with my destination wedding since I have no idea if i can even get blue flowers in Jamaica, especially if I use a floral package from a resort. I might save the peacock feather theme for an at-home reception instead.

 

Any thoughts? My fiance just tells me to pick what I like. He's so helpful. wink.gif

To keep the answer simple, pretty much anything goes with blue!

 

I used turquoise, fuschia and orange. And Jacqueline used peacock feathers, so if you do a search, you can see pics that used those colors.

 

Good luck.

You can pick anything to go with turquoise and both pink and orange are a great bright tropical color scheme to pair with turquoise. As for the peacock feathers you may want to think about making those things yourself and taking them with you if it's really what you are wanting.

Thanks for the advice, ladies! I think I'm definitely going to stick with turquoise... Just need to decide about the peacock feather thing (and its practicality.) I would definitely bring any peacock feather related items from home, but I'm worried that I'll be overplanning it if I do and not really taking advantage of the stress-free aspect of the destination wedding.

 

Still plenty of time to decide, luckily... :)

I think we've decided on turquoise and red as our colors. The red is for me because it's my favorite color and it compliments my skin and hair beautifully and it's a very passionate color. The turquoise to tie in with the DW and because my FI has beautiful blue eyes and any shade of blue makes them pop! That gives us an elegant red feel and a fun, carribean blue - but we need to decide how we use them now.

 

But I agree turquoise is a fantastic color and can to so many ways. For the peacock feel, you can focus on the turquoise and use the darker blue as an accent color. There's a thread in here about blue flowers!

 

Good luck.

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
