A Yellow or Coral color or the Lime Green would be cool. Yes people are doing green. Accent with Aqua blue to pull in the blue from the ocean. Or you can just do Ivory and white for a classy look. I just saw that on the Martha Stewart Wedding show this weekend and it was beautiful with the Bright blue ocean in the back ground. (Note: I don’t care for Martha S. but my mom does and she taped it for me to watch. I won’t turn down a wedding show!! 🙂 )

If you love crimson, than do crimson. I’m also getting married on a beach setting (Mexico to boot!) and my colors will be crimson and deep purple. Many people said those were “dark” fall/winter colors, but I just loved the combination in my head.
Now that the planning has gone underway the colors have worked out wonderfully. Our guys are wearing lighter grey suits because of the heat and my girls have short dress, but the crimson and deep purple are still “dark” and guess what? It looks great!! I’ve used some tropical touches to play up the beach theme some more. For example, the girls bouquets have a mixed color range of dark reds and pruples in things like lillies and other sesonal flowers.
Any color can work no matter the season. Personally, I think the crimson and mettalic grey really make my wedding look sophisticated and elegant rather than whimsical and fun like lighter colors….and thats’s exactly what I wanted.
Just do what makes you happy…always go with your gut!

I voted for other but I totally agree with the other posts you could totally do crimson and add a litter color to balance it out for the location.
I am principally against blue beach/oceanfront weddings (but that’s just me). I’ll be having a beach wedding in Costa Rica and if I see another picture of a blue beach wedding, I think i’ll scream. hahaha. I guess my point is that blue and beach is a go-to combiniation, so it’ll certainly be easy but if you don’t have any strong feelings about blue, I would say go with what YOU love 😀

I think you could totally pull off the crimson! Lots of tropical flowers hibiscus etc are red and they look very elegant in a beach setting. Maybe tie in some other colors like greens, yellows, and pinks if you’re worried about it being too dark. But I say go for what you love. You can make it work!

If I were getting married in your situation I would definitely do peach and either a tiffany blue or light yellow… with ivory accents… here are some pretty pics.
I love the wedding pics ( it is actually a fellow Bee) because I love the tan vest look and the peach dresses!

If you like crimson – I’d say go for it! They have crimson bathing suits for summer, right? As long as you get summer things and they (for the most part) coordinate, I don’t think you can go wrong.
