    I read an article in Brides magazine last night/early morning on color palettes that might be helpful (in the most recent issue I believe). This application on their website appears to be free:

We do 1-2 a year then pick the places we like the most to go back to for a week.  

       

      Have you ever done the Boston to Bermuda cruise?

        I like both. The hot pink and the white look nice but I feel like its missing another color. Black maybe or a dark gray? not sure yet. Maybe a hot pink, light pink, and a dark gray?

          Shara:  One of the ways that I pitched a DW to my FH is that we could save money by having the wedding and the honeymoon in one locale.  We will definitely move to another resort, but will try to stay in the Riviera Maya area. 

           

          P.S. I have entered a number of honeymoon contests, so if we win one of them, all bets are off!

          Yeah we are thinking about moving to another resort or upgrading to the royal service

            I think a light gray, or silver might be nice to compliment your colors.  I LOVE that aqua though.

                I like it..though I would do a pop of another color---perhaps a soft yellow or pink?  You can also play with colors within the spectrum (teal, aqua, etc.)

                  Have you ever done the Boston to Bermuda cruise?

                  I've done NJ to Bermuda, not a huge fan of Norwegian though, who does Boston to Bermuda. I LOVE Bermuda though, definately one of my favorite islands, just to cold to visit in the winter.

                    Norwegian Dawn is the ship from Boston.   I have never done it.. We looked into doing it last year but ended up doing something else instead.  

                     

                    I want to do a cruise and my FI would rather not fly if we don't have (although we do all the time)  So I thought a cruise we don't have to fly to might be good!

                      My FI same way he's the one pushing for here.  I am going to have to go  suck it up and go maybe will start off with a small one 2 -3 days or something.  I don't think I can do a whole week just so terrified.

                      Yeah I wasn't sure about the all white thing.. I still think its a little weird to ask everyone to wear white to my wedding - but I since making up my mind about it, I have looked at bunches of all white wedding party pics and think they do look nice.   I'm a big accessories person so I figured if anyone wanted to add some accessories I'd have them use Yellow.  I think it is a color that will pop a little with the white but not be too "look at me" in the pics.    

                       

                      I am actually sending out some "dress code" packages - the girl are getting little yellow Plumeria flower bobby pins and I am undecided about what to give the guys - all along I have thought I'd do ties.. I actually even found ones that I really like.     But now I don't know if my FI is going to be wearing a tie... I don't want anyone to be hot and uncomfortable : (  I was thinking about doing pocket squares instead - but I don't know if that looks good (to have a pocket square and no tie)

                       

                      Plus, I really wanted to do something extra for our parents... I found these really nice mother of pearl tie clips for our Dads and plan to get mother of pearl bracelets for our Moms.   So if I decide on no ties - I will need to come up with something else for our Dads and return the clips (but I really like them).

                       

                      Maybe the ties will be okay - its not like the ceremony will be very long and as soon as pictures are over they can take the ties off....  right?   I haven't seen it in any pics but I actually kind of like the image of all the guys with ties except my FI - In a way I think the lack of tie will be a focal point...

                       

                      Oy! I just don't know - I must say that I know doing a Destination is way less stressful then me doing a "regular" wedding .. I can't imagine if I had to make all the "regular" choices HHAHA

                      Yellow is a nice pop color.  That's cute dress code packages..  I'm not sure of a tie either.  My FI is always so hot he already said make sure we have an arch or something for him to stand under on the beach.  

                       

                      true indeed less stress than a "regular wedding" but, still has it's stresses.
