Newbie here planning a wedding August 6, 2016 at Dreams Los Cabos. I am having the hardest time deciding my wedding colors, and decorations. You would think this would be one of the easiest things to decide, but for me it's not lol  So any suggestions or pictures are welcome please  :)

@Tonya8655 i don't think it's the easiest thing to decide at all! i feel so much pressure to make the right decision so that our day is as beautiful as possible.


i still haven't chosen our wedding colours. all i know is it will be fairly neutral. no bright pinks, blue, orange, purple, etc. likely blush pink, soft greys, white and MAYBE a little bit of gold sparkle.


sorry - i'm no help but wanted you know know you are not alone.


try pinterest. so many different directions you could go. good luck!

    I'm going to go with a pink for sure.  Just not sure which, either magenta for a bolder color, or soft pink.  I have the colors in photos below.  I just don't want blue.  I love the color, but since we're doing beach, I've noticed some blue bridal parties blend in too much w/ the water.  


    A girl I know got married in Mexico and has her bridesmaids in long soft rose colored dresses.  They got married later in the day and the sun was going down so her wedding was very 'romantic.'  I think the rose and silvers or golds is very pretty as well.

    I think pastel colors are great for a beach wedding!  I agree with the Pinterest suggestion. You'll spend many hours there....haha.

    I went with fuchsia off the hop because it's my fave color!! But at the time I didn't realize you could have as many colors as you wanted lol. As time went on I added orange and turquoise. I did the whole bright colors cause that screams ME but all I'm saying is -- use as many colors as you love. Some times I wonder what I would have done different had I have realized I could have an entire palette early on :) My colors would be the same I'm sure but I may have used them differently !!!

        Maybe try choosing a palette of colours? It's pretty common now to go with multiple shades. My wedding has blush, coral, champagne/gold and hints of mint. You can probably find a lot of inspiration on Pinterest as well! :)
