I love those three colors together!! If you are worried about regret, could your Maid/Matron of Honor also purchase a jade dress and then have your flowers be that gorgeous coral color?

FWIW I think they look okay together. If you aren’t feeling the coral anymore, why not just have the Maid/Matron of Honor in Jade also? If you really wanter her to dress different in some way, she can get a different style or a bigger bouquet.

What colors are you considering instead?  I’d love to see a picture of your gold dress!

How about a lighter shade of green for the other dress?

I love the colors together for what it’s worth. Maybe you put the Maid/Matron of Honor in Jade as well but give her a hint of gold to play off of your dress.

You have a warm color, a cooler colr and a neutral color together so they’re going to look good! I love that you’ve got gold in it though. I’d suggust playing up that bit of bling in the gold, it’ll make everything sparkle and shine 🙂

You could do mainly Jade with just little bits of coral and gold.  Have jade napkins, coral flowers and gold ribbons or accents.

I originally wanted to do navy, cream and orange and ended up doing navy, with just hints of cream and orange.  Navy dresses for bridesmaids and they had light orange roses for their bouquet, ivory table cloths, navy runners.  My invites, menus and other paper things were navy with orange and cream flowers (that was where the color inspiration began).  So things were mostly navy.  I had wildflowers for my centerpieces, so I don’t think I could have had the tables be navy and orange with brightly colored flowers too.

Your colors are close to mine. I think you just need more inspiration pics .  Below is a taste of my inspiration.   Maybe add some white/cream/ivory/peach to your bouquets, and do your maid of honor in a lighter shade of jade, or a jade dress with a more detaileddesign than the others. The swatches are just bright blocks of colors, once you account for design and arrangements with various shades of those colors it flows a little better.

I think those colors are perfect for a beach wedding. They go together well while not being matchy matchy. 

 

As Stacy London from What Not to Wear says “It doesn’t have to match, it just has to go!”

beautiful32:  noooo don’t second guess your colors, they’re amazing!!!! Maybe Im bias cause their almost identical to mine, except for I’m doing an aqua instead of a jade but it’s so similar and I went for it cause I wanted bright summery Colors. I wish we had beaches here in Montreal but we don’t, so I’m doing an outdoor tent wedding. My girls are all dressed in the Aqua color and will be holding the bright pink bouquets. Groomsmen are in grey suits with white shirts, Aqua ties, and handkerchiefs. Then the reception has all Aqua linens with pink floral centrepieces. 

i really think you’re on the right track, but it’s normal to second guess yourself after months of always looking at the same color palettes. It’s easy to get bored or influenced by other great ideas. But I say you stick to your plan cause it’s gorgeous and so fitting to your theme 🙂 

heres my inspiration (neither one of those people are me, just used for the color combinations)

LOVE those colors, especially for a beach wedding! I did like the suggestion of using the flowers for the coral color too, though.
