I am planning a tropical themed wedding in Florida. It is October 15, but I DO NOT want a fall theme. I like white orchids and tropical greenery with some pops of yellow and pink and also lots of pineapples and gold. I am having a terrible time choosing colors. I have ordered many swatches from azazie and none seem just right. There is a pale mint green that I like but my maid of honor hates it (the one on the top) I thought of combining all three colors below but my mom hates the combo. Help Bridesmaid dress colors!! 1
There is a deep emerald green that I like, but everyone comments that it looks very fall or wintery, which is obviously not what I am going for. That is below:

I like this color and green is my favorite color, but I want a tropical theme/look and I’m worried this will look wintery.

This is the dress pictured on the azazie website in the emerald color. It looks a lot darker in real life when I got the swatch. Any ideas or opinions?Help Bridesmaid dress colors!! 3

    That shade of green does not look wintery by itself or with the other swatches. Do a Google search for tropical greenery. There is nothing wintery about those. With bright tropical flowers, they will not look like a Christmas tree. If you love the green, then go for it.

    Unless mom is wearing one of the colors, she doesn't get a say.

    Browse Pinterest for color palettes and go with whatever you love.

    The green swatch does look slightlyyyy wintery on it's own, but I think if it's paired with tropical flowers then people wouldn't even think winter. I would definitely order a sample dress ($10) just to see what it actually looks like. If you like green, go with the green!

    I think that dark green can easily be tropical when paired with the other colors that you mentioned.
    A lot of tropical leaves are a dark green.

    I've found that the dresses on Azazie's website don't completely match the swatches, but they are really good about listing the dress colors on their Instagram posts! That was the most helpful when I chose my bridesmaids' dress colors. I think you can also contact them and they'll send you real pictures of specific dress colors, though photographers' editing/filters are one thing to keep in mind!

    The dark green is a lovely color and I think will look very tropical and not winter-y when paired with the right flowers and accessories!

    From the swatches in the top pic, I like the combination of the pale green, the darker turquoise and the salmon pink color. Together, those three give me a tropical feeling.

    I honestly like the color combo lol. They're all pretty much the same color family of greenish blue. To me, I like the flower colors you mentioned better with that color combo than the dark green.

    I love the emerald shade! I had a spring wedding and used super dark greenery that really popped against whites and golds and pinks. I think the combo you have totally works with the emerald! Not wintery at all.

    I was also a bridesmaid in a spring wedding where we wore emerald dresses and it totally worked.

    I like the colors you chose, but if you’re looking for something different you could try something like David’s Bridal Oasis. Sorry, I don’t know what the Azazie equivalent would be. That’s what I’m using and my vibe is very similar to yours.. tropical with lots of greenery gold and pineapples!

    I also think the greenery would pop better against that color. You don’t want it to be too similar to the bouquets imo

    If you you really like the emerald, go for it! You can definitely make it work for a tropical wedding, any flowers you put in the bouquets will pop against the dark green and tropical greenery will compliment it well! I did a quick google search and found this for some inspo

    I think that green color looks more spring/summer to me! Especially if you pair it with other warm colors
