Wedding colors dilemma!

Recommended Posts


I LOVE it!  Such an interesting look with different colours, yet all the same style!  And what a great touch matching the guy's flower to the girl's dress!

My wedding colors were white and different blues. I decided to use different blues so that I wouldn't have to stress about matching the exact shade.

 

So the girls wore the same dress in teal, royal blue, and sky blue. They still looked cohesive because they wore matching white jewelry and white flip flops. The guys all wore the same light-medium blue shirts, khaki pants, brown belt, and brown flip flops.

 

Here are some pictures. (Unfortunately I don't have my professional pictures yet. So I don't have any of the guys and girls all together at the moment).

So I forgot to include that, though I may be biased, I like the idea of different colored dresses. I think you can tie in the look with matching accessories. As for the guys, I agree that finding colors to match the girls exactly was a concern of mine, which is why I had them dressed the same. Personally, I'd rather look purposely mis-matched than do a bad job at matching.

 

Hopefully after seeing edub's pics and these, you'll have a better idea if the different color look is what's right for you.

David's Bridal! I was doing everything to avoid buying from David's Bridal because I read that they have bad customer service. In the end, they had the best price/color/style combination for what I needed. Plus, I ordered the dresses on line and had them shipped to me. After placing the order, didn't have to deal with David's Bridal anymore. Each girl got her own dress altered at a place convenient for her.

 

Here's the link to the dress: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Sleeveless-Split-Front-Crinkle-Chiffon-Dress-F13307_Sale-Sale-Bridesmaid-Dresses. This particular style is on sale (it was also on sale when I bought it over a year ago), so it don't come in all of the colors that I used anymore. There's still Horizon (royal blue), but not Pool (sky blue) or Mermaid (teal).

I think it's really a cute idea to do the different color dresses. Maybe you could put the guys in charcoal or light gray or even black and have matching flowers to coordinate.. that way you and your FI are the only ones in white and the look is still cohesive.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
