    I'm doing the same colors - hot pink and orange. MOH has a hot pink dress, which she is wearing in Jamaica and at the AHR, which is one day after me and the hubby return. Our AHR is at a friend's restaurant, so we will just be using a small decorations, such as pink and orange gerber daisies on the tables and the cake, and the favors and invites will be in our colors. And my shoes are hot pink too!

      I would keep them the same. Dark purple & silver were my brother & sis-in-law's colors and it's a gorgeous combo!! Because your wedding is in December in Idaho and then the AHR in Seattle in January, the tropical colors thing doesn't seem to apply (someone mentioned it). I think it'll be a nice way to have a continuation of your Idaho wedding - using some of the decor at the Seattle reception. And saving $ is always a bonus!
      Good luck deciding!

        We're doing different colors. I had a hard time choosing colors for our wedding in Mexico, could not decide between orange and fuschia or blue and light brown (sand). So we picked blue for the destination wedding and orange and fuschia for the AHR. We're doing minimal decorations in Mexico so it wasn't too big of a deal to not use them again.

          I am using the same colours as it then really does feel like an extension of the wedding especially for those who didnt come to the wedding.

            I'm still going to use the same "blue-brown-and sand" color palette for invitations, table decorations, etc., but I find that the items I am purchasing now are more of a true turquoise, where as the items for Jamaica were more of an aqua -- a slight difference, but to me, it signifies that it's a different party, while still staying within budget!

              I think it all depends my wedding will be in October in the Caribbean and my colors are turquoise and tangerine. But my AHR will probably be close to the Holidays so those colors will not work. I will definitely need to use a different combo.

                I vote to keep the same! If you had tropical colors for your DW, I might feel differently, but the purple and silver work in the winter I think!

                  I am getting married on the beach in October using shades of blue and gray.  But my AHR will be on NYE so I think I am going to do deep purple and gray or black.

                    I'd keep them the same. It all depends on if your color scheme fits with your ahr site though.
