Ive been so back and forth - thought I was set on a color -we went to the bridal shop and now Im confused all over. My bridesmaids are confused over the same thing.

I LOVE the teal - but the magenta pops so much better in the pics due to the sky and water in the background.

Whats your opinion?

Teal.

This is going to be a beach wedding, right? I like having a colour that goes with the natural colour scheme of the event.

I voted teal, but I also like the magenta. They are both good choices for a beach wedding. I'm not helpful either..hehe

I voted for magenta, but now since I saw the actual dresses I am torn. The teal is gorgeous!

I think it almost looks like a pretty wave in the teal. I picture the dress catching a little in the wind and moving during the ceremony, adding to the wave-like appearance.

I love the teal, but you are right, from a photo standpoint, the magenta would look awesome. The teal may blend into the water too much.

teal... never have been a fan of magenta.... and the colour of the dress will still pop against the background, but in a more "pleasing to the eye" manner... (IMO - LOL!!!)

How does it look on the girls? If you are not in love with one particular colour, then maybe see how it looks on the girls... some people look terrible in certain colours no matter how pretty the dress is.

Magenta.
I would worry that the teal will blend into the water. Hehe if it were me I would do more of a coral colour, one that wouldn`t blend in, one that would stand out, but not have too much pop and take away from the bride.. Also coral reminds me of the carribean, the actual coral and tropical flowers etc.

I like both but I think Magenta would be better. It would also depend on what colours my bouquets were. Do you know what you are getting being that it's a destination wedding? I think my cousin was sent pictures of bouquets and then she picked which one she liked when she got married at a resort in Costa Rica

I say teal, magenta screams fall/winter to me. I've seen a couple beach weddings that had blue tones for their colour scheme and it looked absolutely stunning.

I love teal and anything to do with the blue hues usually, but last night on a commercial I saw the Magenta colour against the Caribbean beaches and water and OMG it was absolutely breath taking. So as much as I love teal I would have to say MAGENTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Best Man is actually the Best WOman - shes gonna be in HOT RASPBERRY (the Magenta was too purple for my liking) and I have a Maid of Honor and a Matron of Honor who will both be in turquoise - their flowers and accessories will be opposite color of their dresses. Hope it looks like I imagine it to.
