    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.

    Turquoise and Red nice choice - that is what my FI & I are leaning towards.. it's just such a stunning color combination :)

      I think turquoise, fuschia and orange all look great together!

          We are doing blue and green. Originally I did want pink and orange though!

            Congrats! On the engagement! i think picking the colors is the hardest part! Once you pick the color you kind of have to stay with it the entire time, and it can become difficult!
            My colors are a bright blue and turquoise, with some pink and lime accents here and there. It was hard to not include so many colors when you do tropical because they all look so good together!!!

              Wow, I never would have thought of turquoise and red, but wow, they look amazing together. Love that website! The Perfect Palette

              I think I'm leaning towards turquoise/aqua and coral/orange or something like that...

                My colors are turquoise and orange. I think those 2 colors look really good together....but there are so many options with turquoise.....you can pair it with a lot of different colors.

                  I was scrolling through this thread, and I was already thinking of turquoise and red. I've seen a few inspiration boards with this, and thought it was gorgeous because you can have red roses present or rose petals. I saw a site somewhere, where turquoise was the base and they had red coral accents on their paper goods. Very cute and works nicely with a beach wedding.

                    So many colors and only one wedding I do love the turquoise and red. I saw turquoise lanterns tied with red ribbon, they were stunning!

                    I am debating doing a bunch of color accents with a lot of white (turquoise, pink, orange, green and yellow). But not sure where that leaves me with my bridesmaids... maybe I can find a patterned sun dress with lots of colors?

                    Perfect Palette site is great! MY FI has hard time invisioning things, this really helps.

                      We used turquoise, coral and silver. The color palette website is very helpful!
