    A lil help, please!!

    I love the colors black and white, but I want to do a Mexico beach wedding and I feel that black and white really isn't Mexico-ish..... I was thinking of white and blood orange. What have you ladies done? What colors looks good in photos on the beach?

    Thank you in advance!

      I went with a fushia/ black combination to make things more tropical. I think orange would look really pretty, too. Rather than actually use white as part of my colour scheme I just made sure that "neutral" things like my dress, background of my invitations, etc.. were white rather than off white or ivory coloured. Hope this helps!

          Hi, maybe check out the perfect palette for some inspiration/ideas. If you scroll down on the left, you can pick by color & see inspiration boards they've put together
          The Perfect Palette

          And here's a link specifically to beach weddings (& the 2nd one's a fuchsia/black one!)

          good luck!

              If you like black and white then go for it! I think adding a pop of orange would look really pretty. We called our color "persimmon" and the orangy-red really stood out in the pictures. I got inspiration by looking at paint and room samples from the home decorating stores.

                Auto Jo! great idea!!

                maybe I can do colored dresses with a hint of black somewhere. I just love black and white! Always have, just I would feel bad for my BM's to stand in the sun with black dresses on =(

                  I really like the black, white and orange. Maybe you can just do as an accent color.

                    Black, white and turquoise would look gorgeous as well! I also love the black white and orange idea :)
