Dilemma! Two color themes: one for ceremony and one for reception???

Recommended Posts

Ok so for months I have had the following color scheme



golden yellow- secondary

coral- accent


Here are some of my inspiration pictures:




I thought of using beach elements (shells, starfish, etc) because there was limited access to  flowers in Labadee. I figured it would be a more affordable way to decorate using these elements, as well as some vases, etc. But now that we are doing the ceremony in Jamaica, flowers are a more viable option.




I just found out that the restaurant where the reception is held has a color scheme that kind of clashes with mine.


Its a dark, warm space with wood, kind of a rich feel. The fresh, bright, light color palette doesn't really work.




So I am torn between changing the beach ceremony color palette so that the reception colors will look well at the venue, or leaving the colors different for the ceremony. 


Bronze- Primary

Pewter gray- Primary

Yellow- Secondary

Green- Accent


Or maybe throw red in there instead of one of the colors or in addition...


As you can see, I can't make up my mind!!!




I like the glamour and chicness of the more muted color palette, its more elegant and classic. But on the other hand, brights will pop much more! On the beach, the neutrals give it a more ethereal and romantic look because it kind of blends into the sand, etc. whereas the bright colors are bold. 


I like both!



Fiance loves this but we both think it needs at least one color to make it pop.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
