Destination wedding decision---

 

Kyle and I knew from the moment he asked me to marry him that we wanted a beach wedding... Having met in Florida and spending most of our time on the beach, we just knew that was us!!!  We had originally planned to have the wedding at one of our meeting places, Destin Florida... Which is absolutely gorgeous and we love it there... Then we realized how expensive a US wedding would cost for us and our guests... They'd be spending about a ton on a flight and hotel stay in Florida... So we began researching a destination wedding... I immediately knew if we were going to do it that we HAD to do it in Riveria Maya--having been there 2 years ago for a friends wedding, I already knew how beautiful it was!!

 

We looked at multiple resorts, but we started looking before any pricing contracts were out so we couldn't get an accurate account of the costs... But we got estimates and went from there... 

 

Our original choice of hotel was the Barcelo Palace Deluxe--but since my friend got married at the Barcelo I didn't want to be a copy cat and I wanted to try something new...

 

Next we found the Royal in PDC and we absolutely LOVED that resort but it was totally out of the price range that we wanted our guests to have to pay.... 

 

That led us to the Gran Porto...

I was a bit nervous since I hadn't seen a lot of recent reviews for that resort for weddings, but we decided that we loved the look and the price and the fact that it's near the "downtown" area so people could feel free to wander about the town and aren't stuck at the resort the whole time... So we went with it!!! 

 

I am still a bit nervous about the fact that it's a public beach but if people want to watch me get married that's okay with me!! :)

 

We got booked the DAY that the pricing became available! I couldn't stand to wait any longer!! It was a long 3 month wait and that was enough!!!  

 

We are leaving Saturday 01/03/15, have the wedding on Wednesday 01/07/15 and will leave :( 01/11/15-- OH I CAN'T WAIT!!!


Wedding colors--- NEED A BIT OF HELP LADIES!!! :)

 

A definite color is Fuchsia-- as you can tell I LOVE pink and could definitely not have a wedding without having the main color as pink!! I asked to have fuchsia and light pink, my Kyle said we needed a more masculine color, but if I really wanted two pinks he'd be ok with that... So I compromised!!! 

 

For the second color, I'm a little torn....

 

I'm thinking aqua so I have a complimentary color and not two dominant colors... As my other choice is teal, but I think it and fuchsia together would be too much... Thoughts??

 

Here is the fuchsia and aqua inspiration

Let me know your thoughts ladies!! Thanks! :)

 

Oh you HAVE to go with the aqua!!! I'm so in love with that combination that's what I'm doing!! lol But I don't mind if you copy me.... lol

 

Seriously though, I really do love that combination. Not as partial to teal....  And there are so many brides on here that have done the same colour combinations that I don't care if you do! lol If anything, I would be jumping up and down to see what you put together for flowers and dresses and stuff.

 

And besides.. you know what they say! Great minds do think alike!!

 

Can't wait to see what you decide!!!

This is what decided it for me. I went looking on the internet for things using that colour combination just so that I could see what it would look like. My daughter in law already said she wants to wear hot pink. I had asked for Coral so that's why I went looking to see if it was a combination I could live with and I fell in love with the 2 colours together! Stupid that it came from a flower girl dress, but whatever floats your boat I guess... Then I went looking for flowers for ideas, again to see if the 2 together was something I wanted. I know she would wear Coral if I asked her but if she is happy with the colour then she'll be happier wearing it.The turquoise flowers I want maybe just a touch more turquoise and I want to change the white to more of a cream colour, and I think with the pink I'll change the light pink that's in this bouquet to a cream colour as well. And last but not least this is the dress I picked out and she loves it, so we're doing it in hot pink.
