    I have fell in love with a fall wedding... but since we are doing a destination wedding in spring i am wondering if I should follow the spring color eticate... I fell in love with burgandy and gold.. but I am wondering what everyone thinks.. and what colors they have picked, what season they got married, and why they picked the colors. thanks dolls :)

     


    All because, two people fell in love!

      I think it's your wedding and you can chooose whatever colors you like ! Whocares if it's a destination wedding. I have seen all colors of the rainbow done at destination weddings. If you love those colors , I think you may regret not using them. This day only happens once so how you envision it as perfect is solely your choice!! :)

      I am choosing a black and white theme - with a splash of Red. My groomsmen will be wearing black pants and white long sleeved shirts. My fiance will be wearing the same with a black tie ( still debating on the jacket)  All of my favors and decorations will be black/white and my Bridesmaid dresses are Cherry Red.  I picked Red for my dresses because I  have always loved red, I have also had a few people tell me that perhaps I should change my color because I am getting married on a beach, but it's my wedding and that's just how it's going to be !

      I wanted to keep it simple.  Let us know what you decide!!

        I agree with this!! Fall colors will look BEAUTIFUL on the beach with the ocean as a backdrop!! Pick what YOUR heart wants don't let people tell you otherwise!! I almost did and I am so happy that I said NO I am doing what I want!! I originally chose Tiffany's blue and coral and just was NOT happy with the decision but everybody around me was. Finally I changed it up with WHITE!! With small accents of coral!! It is MY wedding and I am doing it how I want!!! I think that the white will look so pure on the beach with the turquoise waters as a backdrop!!

          I am doing orange and pink - with a little added color in the centerpieces.

            I agree it's your wedding, and your colors will look beautiful on it.  And besides gold is like an all season color so if you are worried about it use that as your base and burgundy as your accent.

             

            I am doing all shades of pink and black.  I didn't want to have to search out one certain shade of pink.  I wanted to be able to encompass all the hues of pink that I love and I am doing exactly that. :)  Have fun and enjoy.

              If you really love the color then use it! After all it's your day. Follow what you really want and you'll be happy about it rather choosing the other options.

                Do what you want!!! I felt pressure to choose "beachy" colours but it was NOT what I wanted... I chose the colours I wanted which are navy and green (apple/chartreuse) and am so happy with my decision!!!! You will only regret not doing what you want!!!

                 

                Burgundy and gold will be sooooo nice!!!!

                  Definitely pick what you want, it's your wedding!! I chose fuschia and orange and am going to add maybe a little bit of sage in the flowers...

                    Agreed!  A lot of people are going with more traditionally beachy colours like fushia, orange or turquoise!  But you have to pick what is right for you! If those are the colours you've always invisioned, I say go for it, irregardless of the location!  We're using bright coral, which is pretty beachy, but adding a lot of ivory and pale green for a more classic feel.
