My wedding is in four months exactly (Oct 2) and I have done next to nothing beyond the big basics (photo, location, ceremony, dj etc etc). We are doing the wedding on a naval base that is right on the beach. The reception hall has a long stretch of windows that overlooks the beach, but it is a nice little walk to get down to the actual beach so I wouldn't really qualify it as a beach wedding. Ceremony is in a chapel. Originally I had chosen brown and blue as my colors, but finding the shades I want of these and matching them up just is not working for me, in fact it is making me crazy. I would much rather do what I initially wanted to go with - black & white, which I LOVE. My question is, do you think it would be silly to have a black and white color theme at a place that is overlooking the beach?? I really appreciate all of the input.
I think it is perfectly fine to do black and white overlooking the beach. If that really worries you, you could select ONE item, be it the napkins, a flower, the print on the stationary, etc to have as a pop of color in the room. This way you have that bit of color, but you wouldn't have to match between the napkins, flowers, stationary, etc. Do what you love.
