Colour Scheme & Palette

Recommended Posts

I’ve chosen turquoise and purple (or as the technical terms go: Tiffany Blue and Grape Jelly haha). Personally I think that colour themes are overrated and limiting, but maybe my perspective will change as I get deeper into the planning process.

acw271011 i'd be hesitant to have the gf involved like that because what happens if they break up and he gets a new serious gf...I feel like it would be awkward to have your wedding pics and album have her all over it but that might just be me. Since you want some coral or pink maybe your bouquet and then a flower in your hair. And then do chair sashes and flower petals in coral. That's what we are likely doing because the girls will be in spa blue

 

I didn't even think of that!!! lmao Excellent point!! and actually they have broken up officially now so yes - thankfully it was "before"  Yikes - what a rotten mom I would be!! lol

 

I'll figure something out. I had my heart set on turquoise chair sashes but I could always do the flowers and bouts in coral/salmon and then table decorations in that colour. The sad part is the hot pink kinda grew on me!! lol

I'm loving the turquoise (Tiffany Blue) ladies!! It's soooo fresh

 

I so totally agree!! I absolutely love it. I'll never have a box from Tiffany's but I can at least have the colour!! lol

@@MrsRoy - Oh I love your grey and yellow! That is my absolute fave colour combo. My BMs refused to wear yellow though haha. I ended up changing my colour scheme once I chose a destination wedding because I love vibrant colours against the ocean backdrop. But I still love the yellow and grey!

 

@@kmk2016 - Of course I love it!

 

My colours are fuchsia, blush, coral and a hint of orange with gold accents. Groom and his groomsmen will be in a light gray

We are doing mint bridesmaids and mint ties for the groomsman. I have a colour pallet I am using for inspiration but mint is our main colour. pictures really look good with bright colours so I think we will do flowers in fushia and decorations a mix of fushia and purple

Great choices, misty rose was in the running for me at the start too, so nice. I agree mismatch gives it more character!!!

I also like different style dresses too but same colour. Since we are ordering off etsy we can choose different straps we want On the dress , hopefully everyone will have a bit of their own character.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
