I also using the deep purple (eggplant) as part of my color scheme along with some coral and grey (silver) and brown (burlap and Kraft paper) The men's suits are grey linen just like the picture and I love the combo.!
What is everyones color scheme? I hadn't really put any thought into this, but lately I've been seeing a lot of deep purple and really been gravitating towards it. I thought it would look really nice with the light gray suit my FI is going to go with (something like the below). My question: is a deepish purple too dark for a beach wedding in May? My dress is kind of elegant/glam/old Hollywood and I thought purple was a regal color to go with it. I look really terrible in warm colors, so we were definitely going to go with a green, blue, or purple. Any input would be appreciated! Please be honest...we haven't picked anything yet so I'd rather know now than after we start buying stuff! Like the below are some examples I liked:

Like Choco, we are doing "pre-travel" packets with packing lists and luggage tags. When guests arrive in Jamaica, they will get a welcome/thank-you-for-coming letter, a list of scheduled events/activities, a resort map and a note explaining that we are treating all of our guests to a private snorkel/catamaran. They will also be getting canvas beach bags (per room) and t-shirts for each guest (my FI and I own a company that specializes in graphic design, printable apparel and promotional products). Although we aren't crazy about lugging everything down there with us, we figured we couldn't not do bags and t-shirts since they are at such a low cost to us.
Have you made the t-shirts yet? I would love to see what you have designed!

Lol - I have ALWAYS loved purple, and when my engagement ring ended up being an amethyst, I was SO EXCITED!! And of course that means I have to have purple as one of my wedding colors!

With regard to purple: I LOVE it! Its classy and beautiful. Purple would have been my choice if every wedding we have been invited to wasn't also doing purple including my FI's best friend's wedding and my former best friend's wedding. I just decided I just couldn't do it because I wanted to be totally unique. So, instead, we are doing a neutral color theme.

Awww so sorry to hear! I've been praying for pretty much all of the east coast since the hurricane. So sorry to hear about the future bro in law!

As for the bags.. I'm most def wishing I didn't have to lug all this crap down with me! I may give mine out before we go at least to the ppl who are local.
OMG I love it! I am going to contact our WC or TA and see if that's something we can set up. We were going to spend that money on people anyways and I don't have to lug more than my wedding decor.
