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.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
