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!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
