just posted something but then it didnt show up... ill try again ...

 

im 3 months out and now am having second thoughts on my wedding colors which are fuschia and orange.... thinking about changing to fuschia, light pink & green.... i have never really liked the color orange but think it looks pretty with pink but i LOVE pink & green together... these are some inspiration pictures i had from when i first got engaged...is it too late to change my colors?!

I think both options are beautiful Teira, but I think the colors you already have are much more festive and seem more tropical.  The newer colors seem more traditional and although beautiful, to me don't seem as suited to a fun DW.  I'm not a huge fan of orange either, but it really looks nice in the bouquets you already bought.  I think we should all have our internet blocked from finding new options as we get closer to avoid second guessing and over spending ;)

Francine-Thanks so much for posting that.  You did an awesome job and it's given me ideas to do something like this.  I don't plan on taking oot bags down there with me but we are giving starfish wine stoppers and charms as our favors at the reception dinner since starfish is pretty much our theme.  I would like to do something like this and send just them a few thingsbefore leaving such as a tiny magnet for the balcony doors to keep the air running if the doors are open and some locks for their luggage.

Brandy-Yes the ivory ones with the starfish.  They are so stinking cute.  I ordered the Nina sandals and they came in today but I'm going to have to send them back.  They are a lttle large on me and neither my daughter or finace like the thick sole!  I was really disappointed because they look so cute online and I was really looking forward to them.

Teira, I love the colors you already have, I think you should keep them, it would cost more to change it now, and I like the pink and orange better than the pink and green.  And I LOVE your bouquet!!!!!

 

Theresa, I dont have the flip flops yet, I wont get them for about 2 weeks but I'll take pictures then.

What if you just added another color to your pink and orange combo, would that help you wanting to change your mind?  You could add aqua or turquoise to the color combo.  Or you could still add green to it, here I found you some examples

Teira - couple different comments on your stuff!  I am pretty much planning on try the baby making right away after the wedding.  I'm so totally ready for it.  FI has two children from a previous marriage (ages 15 and 12), and I am ready to have another child in the house.  Also, I think you should stick with your colors too.  I feel like they are so much more tropical than the pink and green (which I also agree with, are more traditional wedding kind).  Of course it's up to you on what you want, it's your wedding...  You just have to figure out how much you'll have to change and if it's really worth it.

 

Lua - That sucks with the girls thing...and I can kind of relate.  I have one friend (my BFF/MOH) that I have left from growing up with.  I didn't go to college after high school, so I didn't develop those relationships.  Most of the people I hang out with are older women because I can't deal with the immature part of the "younger" girls.  I have three girls that I'm close to and they are the three in my wedding party.  I'm lucky in the fact that they are all able to come to Mexico with us, but I'm curious how my bachelorette party will work too...

Tiera,

I'm agreeing with a lot of the girls here about just adding another colour.

That way you can still use what you've bought thus far and from now on just use orange as more of an accent colour. You could put green ribbon over your bouquet handle to add green to it? Or add some green flowers in with it? Your garter would be still be fine... I mean people will see it once really, right? I personally love the idea of having 3 colours. 2 main, and 1 accent. Our colours are turquoise & latte, with berry as an accent colour. :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
