A good friend of mine just did this and she had a bit of a spanish/vintage theme going with it.  and she used lots of white flowers to off-set the bright colors.  We scoured an antique mall for old books and I filled all of the candles for her at my shop.  It turned out beautifully.

I don’t think you *need* to have a theme – if you just like the colors, go with them!  But if you want one, the wine theme is fun πŸ™‚

and i like the wine idea.  wine as a favor is about as good as it gets for a guest i think!

Yep! These are from her wedding.  She also wore turquoise Louboutin’s and the red soles really helped finish the look πŸ˜‰

Unfortunately i dont have any more pictures that don’t have her and guests in them, and I don’t feel right about pimping everyone out like that.

Mine was malibu blue and red, so pretty close to turquoise depending on who you ask lol πŸ™‚

I love your color combo.  I think the wine stuff would work out great especially if you go with a deep red instead of a bright red.

I’m doing these too! though I’m calling it aqua lol πŸ™‚ I agree with everyone else, you don’t HAVE to have a theme, I’ve just found its helped me. But mine is Wizard of Oz, so I’m not sure I’ll be much help haha.

If you’re planning on doing your bridesmaid dresses in aqua/turquoise, try David’s Bridal’s “malibu” its really pretty. Here’s my bridesmaid dresses, and then my Maid/Matron of Honor dress with an added red sash {she was going to be in their “ruby” shade of red, but they discontinued it before she could order anything}

I’m sure whatever you come up with will be beautiful!

 

{the second picture is from my cell phone which is why the colors look different. its the same dress, taken minutes apart lol}

My wedding was red and turquoise (robin’s egg/aqua/whatever you want to call it)

We didn’t really have a theme persay–we used books and scrabble tiles, so kinda nerdy, and also parasols and origami cranes so a bit of asian influence as well.

I think the wine theme could totally work, but you don’t have to overdo a theme, just go with stuff you both love and that expresses who you are, that’s what your guests will really appreciate.

Amazingly good vanilla and red velevet cupcakes made by my baker step-SIL with hand made marshmallow fondant flowers! Seriously!

Our colors were red, aqua and champagne.  We didn’t have a theme either, but we wanted it fun, but elegant.  Not sure if it worked, but we loved it!
