    @steelbride one thing that was suggested to me for shoes from another GSP bride I know was to get wedges because the walkway to the gazebo has the wooden slats so you don't have to worry about getting a heel stuck! haha. They do put a red carpet over it but the red doesn't go with my colours and it didnt go with hers either so she had them remove it and I am doing the same :)

    Yes I'm not using those red carpets either @Pottswedding2015, they're pretty ugly actually. I may be able to find a small wedge sandal, I'll have to look some more :P

     

    My colours are Fiesta themed

    Colours

     

    It's a lot of colour for me lol but I figured it fit with the destination :)

      Thanks :) I love it so much, it's super fluffy on the bottom and the basketweave on the top looks beautiful :) and I never in a million years would have picked it off the rack lol. The store manager brought it over to me.

      Thanks :) @calgarybride2015

       

      Did the colour photograph ok? I know sometimes Magenta type colours don't look that great in photos for some reason.

       

      I'm going to order some papel picado banners and my sister in law is knitting me some fiesta coloured flag garlands so that'll be most of my decor lol. I'm not going with much for flowers just my bouquet and the boutonnieres. Bridesmaids are going to carry fans, easier on the budget and practical lol.

      I think but depending on the camera sometimes it looked darker than it was. I think it's more fuchsia than magenta though - well the begonia color anyways hehe. See my links below for my wedding pics :)

      Fuchsia was my color lol. I think indoors it gives off a darker feel but in the sun you get the bright pink that it is. Also depends on the material in which you are using the color in. The swatch is satin but our dresses were chiffon for the most part but a layer of satin under ..... so def different in that way.

      @streelbride

       

      I also didn't want the red carpet at the Gazebo and we mentioned something to our wedding coordinator.  In the end we ended up getting something that wasn't a carpet and the colour was a little bit more subdued.  Not sure how we ended up with it...but it looked great with our d├ęcor and didn't appear to be tacky.  We needed something because I could see one of my BMs taking a fall with their heels.  For the most part my BMs wore either flats or wedges. 

       

      We are so excited!  We are going back to the Princess this fall for a little R&R - yay!!!!!!!!!!
