Hi-

We’re having a beach wedding in October and our colors are aqua/chocolate and tan. I found my dresses at Ariadress.com. I chose the aqua, which matches tiffany blue perfectly, but they also have a turquoise, which is bit more blue and brighter. Also, they have a ton of cute choices. My girls all picked the same sweetheart neck knee length.

We’re using mostly white flowers with hot pink accents. A lot of orchids and lillies, but we’re also at the beach.

I love the color, but it was hard to match flowers, so I would stick with mainly white, and whatever accent you like- orange and yellow also look very pretty.

Good luck!

My BM’s had turquoise dresses and they had cream and pinkish hued flowers in their bouquets which I think worked pretty well.  You can see them here:

Turquoise seems like a hard color to match flowers to and I felt that way too, but don’t psyche yourself out. Any whites, pinks, reds, chocolates, greens, oranges or even purples will go great with turquoise so that opens up a lot of options for you.

Oh yeah, the dresses came from David’s Bridal and the colors were Pool, Aruba and Oasis.  Aria was my first choice but because of sizing issues, we had to nix that.  I have been to their store and seen their colors in person, and they’re very rich and beautiful.  Definately ask them to send you samples of the colors you are interested in.

We had a more aqua blue color for our Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses from jenny yoo. Our color scheme was bright cherry red and aqua blue, with poppy orange accents, so the red/orange flowers looked fantastic against the blue dresses. Very colorful and very fun and modern!

I personally love the pop of warm colors with turqouise – reds, pinks, oranges and even some yellows.  Turquoise has become one of those great "almost neutral" colors for weddings (i.e. it goes with almost anything.)  Good luck!  🙂

I looooove complementary colours, so ORANGE would be the way to go for me. However, if that’s too much of a contrast, then go for fuchsia / bright pink. Yum.

I also like turqouise much more than teal!

I’m having them do bouquets of white daisies (not gerbera, just your classic daisy) and yellow roses.  The pop of yellow actually looks really good with the color!  We’re having a garden wedding, I didn’t want to use flowers not in the garden b/c I though it would look out of place.

I am all about color so I definitely fuchsia is the way to go with flowers but I am sure whatever you do will be beautiful.
