Turquoise and chocolate wedding
I am having a turquoise and chocolate wedding in either early september or early october. But as of now I am having trouble with everthing. Im planning on my own. My husband is a marine recruiter so he is busy most of the day. Well my dress will be white and I am trying to find one with a turquoise sash. I was thinking the maids should wear turquoise with a brown sash, but then what color shoould their flowers be? i also dont know what to do about the wedding favors, my budget is limited but i dont want my wedding to look cheap.. i also want an elegant ckae to go along with the theme but the ones i have seen are either too much or look weird...Please help!!!!

I would suggest white. You are wearing white and it really goes nicely with the chocolate brown and blue theme. I have used in the past white phale orchids that are stunning with the color's you have chosen.

I think that your choice of color is amazing! As for the flowered you could do white roses or lily's, mixed in with some light blue and brown died flowers, with a unique ribbon of a couple colors hanging from your bouquet; to set you apart from the maids. The invitations could be as simple but cute as you like, you could take single pie slice paper boxes and fill them with your choice of candy with a cute poem or your photo, that way each person will want to open there own. Cakes are always hard, just find a place around you that does them, even just a square setting with 3 layers and some decorative flowers to dress it up can still be elegant.

For your cake if you look at the picture of my cake it is simply & elegant. It was a white cake with ivory swiggles all over it. You could do a white cake with the turquoise or chocolate squiggles. Maybe you could even find a monogram cake topper with colored crystal stones to match. If you find a gown with any color sash the bridal store should be able to get you a sash in the color you are requesting. I don't really know about the BM flowers try looking in a wedding flower magazine they have great ideas.

For the dress, if you want a colored sash, pick a gown that can be easily altered. Then have someone at the sash in. Most alteration shops can handle this type of add on. Or you could wrap your flowers with a turquoise ribbon so when you are holding it infront of you, you have that splash of color. (My mother made custom wedding gowns for over 30 years) Hope that helps some! Good luck!

I like to combine tones of ivory, peach and cream to work with turquoise and brown. The combination of the three almost "pick up" the brown tones. Accent with turqoise crystals and ribbon and the look is elegant without going with all white. This works for both you and your bridesmaids.

you have already gotten some great advice.

As far as your cake goes, take a look at the bio in my profile. Our cake is very simple, yet elegant, and will have coordinating satin ribbon wrapped around each layer. For 300 people its costing us $300!

I have designed many weddings in your colors.
You can find the turq. in dresses as well as brown, you can add accents such as a small sash in the contrasting color. One of my brides had me add in crystals in turquoise to her girls flowers which were mainly white with lime green and touches of brown curled fern ends. It photographed fabulous!!
I added a pretty turq ribbon to the bouquets and it looked wonderful.
For the bride she accented her gown with turq crystals and jewelry keeping her gown a crisp white. Her bouquet was also tied with a pretty Turq ribbon over white with tiny crystal flowers in between the flowers.
for favors she went to our online favor site and picked the Tiffany box look notepads and candles, type in 3354TEN for a 10 % discount!!
go to my website to see some featured weddings in your colors.
If you are in So. Cal, we give a discount on flowers for Active Military!
