I am not one of those people who are type A about everything, making lists etc. but I do want to make sure we have a nice wedding so I will be asking lots of questions on here since we are pretty much going in blind with no site visit..yikes. Just set our date today and looking into colors. Right now we are purple, cream with hints of orange based on my mothers favorite flower which was the bird of paradise. Wondering about decorations to display this with more than just flowers? Also not sure if we are gonna do the whole bridesmaid/groomsmen thing. but anyone have there guests participate by wearing certain colors? Also how about bridesmaids who u let buy own dresses just gave specific color? How that work out?

Hello and welcome to this great forum! You will find it to be your best friend during you planning :o)

From experience, being lenient w/the BM's and letting them choose their own dress did not work so well for me. From the beginning I told my BM's that I did not want to put them in a dress they did not feel comfortable in, so I wanted them to pick their own dress. Even picked a color and told them they could pick different shades of the color I chose. It just seems that it was kind of hard on them too, to all be on the same page and go dress shopping, and they said they felt lost bcuz I didn't really give them direction or an idea of what I wanted.

 

Anyhow, I ended up going to a bridal shop and picking out a color and a few dresses for them to choose from, and I think that was a lot quicker and easier :o)

 

Good luck and happy planning :o)

Welcome to the forum!

GRP is a beautiful resort, I was just there this past November. Very pretty.

As for your wedding colors, that sounds beautiful to me and that's so sweet that you're doing it because of your mom's favorite flower.

 

As for bridesmaids attire, there are a bunch of threads on the forum with that information, so as your scoping the place out I'm sure you'll find what you're looking for.

 

Good luck and best wishes!
