I agree with EV that if you use the lime green as an accent and the purple as the main that it will looks awesome! You may also want to think about peacock inspired weddings.. they use the purple, lime green, and a little bit of turquoise... either way you'll be able to pull it off beautifully!

 

 

Lime green and purple are very nice together after looking around I was starting to come around to it.....now my groomzilla has changed his mind because since we are getting married in January he feels that having bright colours like lime green and a brighter purple may be hard to pull off since are bridal party/guest will not be tan and be super white (his sister and my MOH look like ghost).

 

So he has now changed his mind to coral, aqua and golds. So we will see how long that one sticks for. Lucky for me I have some time :-)

Mine are coral and tan and white! I love the colours because they are beachy, romantic and not too flashy!

Ohhhhh I am so partial to those colours since coral, tan and white are my colours with some gold in there! But honestly I think in Canada we have to worry about the colours but you're in the Caribbean so I think the lime green and purple colours can be pulled off anytime of the year even for people who are pale lol!

I just wanted to share mine. I am going with the Nautical theme. Here is a link of another wedding that had the navy/royal blue and yellow and lime green on the flowers. these are the exact colors I want :) Hope you like!

I originally wanted pink and orange and possibly a corally color to make it more ombre themed. But the more I think about it, its tropical and everything is going to be so bright and, well, tropical, I have been considering a more, serious color. LIke a deep purple, with possibly my orange, and a little gold?

 

What do you guys think?

    I like the purple idea better. I think DW brides tend to think they need to go with tropical colors because they are in the caribbean and I disagree. I like the contrast of a darker color with the brightness you will find in the natural setting. I have seen the gamut in wedding colors and I am naturally a fan of gem tones anyway. I thought of every color scheme when I first started planning. Everyone told me to do coral- so for a second we considered coral, orange and brown- to sort of mimic a sunset and have each bridesmaid in a different shade of the orange- but orange isn't even one of my favorite colors so we nixed it. My favorite color is a peacock blue- one of my friends asked if she could buy a burgundy dress or if was too dark and another friend wanted to wear plum. I thought "maybe we can just do jewel tones as a theme" but it didn't give me enough of an actual sense of decor.

     

    My blue palette ended up being cool and "breezy" feeling and my wedding took on a "laid-back chic" kind of vibe. If I had to do it again- I really dig the navy blue and pink color scheme I have seen.

     

    I think your instinct is right- you are already in the tropics and there will be brightness everywhere- in the sunset, in the water, in the sky- a darker color to contrast looks gorgeous in my opinion. Everyone fought me but I threw in Navy blue in with my aqua and peacock to give it a richer feel. I wanted navy blue for my girls once we couldn't find the peacock color, but no one liked it because they said it was too severe.

     

    I think as long as you accent your dark color with a lighter one- it is a way to make the wedding look more formal if that's what you want. That is something we wanted. We wanted it to feel displaced lol like glamour on the beach. I think we got that.

     

    I vote the purple! 


    Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013

      Love this! I wanted navy blue for my girls but they thought it was too dark. I gave them a lot of say lol but I think this is super cute and not common so it will be a little unique

      Yay! I love purple, and I do want more of a formal feel even though were doing it at the beach.  A destination wedding was not my first choice, but that is all my groom has ever wanted, so it's little bit of compromise on my end and I still want it to look and feel like a fancy wedding.  And since we're having a smaller wedding, only about 20 people, we're not having bridal party because everyone who would be bridal party are the only people invited! So I can spend a lot more of our budget on decor and details and really make it what i would want, even if i was having the wedding in our hometown.
