Colors Tradition

Recommended Posts

When I started planning my wedding, I had the hardest time choosing colors, so I just didn't.  We're not having a bridal party, so I didn't really think it would be a big deal.  I purchased a boarding pass invitation that was turquoise and black, because I really liked it.  Now I'm getting together gift bags and using the same monograms from my invitations (turquoise and black).  The only problem is...I chose an orange, yellow, and purple bouquet and the centerpieces contain magenta orchids (Sandals Beautiful Beginnings theme).

 

My question is....Is it really that big of deal to have everything match?  I really don't want to redesign my monogram to match my flower colors unless I really need to.  Help!

You're having a destination wedding --- which is already untraditional. So, I personally don't think you have to match everything. I'm not matching everything either. It's your wedding and do what makes you happy! All of my family and friends keep telling me that no one will really care about the details because everyone will be admiring and enjoying the beautiful destination!

I just noticed that your wedding is this July! I don't think you should add stress by trying to make changes with such little time.

I agree everything doesn't have to match.  I ended up with pink bridesmaid dresses because I am doing all shades of pink and black as my theme.  It's your day celebrate it your way.

It doesn't have to be matchy matchy.  Just because turquoise and black are your wedding colors doesn't mean that EVERYTHING has to be torquoise and black!  Don't stress about this at all.

I totally agree! If you like the way it looks, it will look great together! Besides, you already said that there aren't BM, so it is not like any pics will clash or anything. I think it will all work out, and why stress about it? Just do what you love!

We really haven't chosen colors either, and I wasn't planning on matching things.  I don't think you need to match everything.

Thanks guys!  You're making me feel a lot better....

 

Still haven't decided what to do, and I guess that will just depend on time.

I think some of the most beautiful weddings have had lots of color.  There are no rules that you have to follow!  Have fun!!

Nahh, you don't have to match at all! my colors are turquoise blie and white. and we ordered the BM dresses online, and one of the dresses came back a light blue, the others are turquoise.. and the dress company won't refund, so we are stuck with it..  Soo we had to adjust our theme to being different shades of blue.. i am not too worried, althought i was upset at first.. people have a point! those are just the little things that in the end, really don't matter!  It is your day! and no matter what it will be beautiful!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
