An Orange Wedding Theme can look like a daunting task in the beginning. Most people think of fall when it comes to this color and this makes it a great time of the year for you to pull it off as it goes well with most fall colors, such as yellows, shades of brown, shades of silver, gray and also reds. It also can go well if you have an evening wedding as the color palette works great with night time lighting.
Choosing your shade of orange is the first most important step. If you choose a deep orange it would be best to pair it with light shades of brown, yellow or red. It also is tasteful with pinks and greens, and possibly blue when used in a summer setting . It all depends on your taste, but these accent colors are sure to make the Orange stand out.
Along with your shade of orange you have to figure out the flowers for your theme. Bouquets of ranunculus, parrot tulips, and mini cattleya orchids with copper ribbon have been projected to be a trend with Orange themes alike in 2011 and would make a great focal point to pair with your dress, especially if it has any orange trim. Orange and yellow Roses and Tulips also make fine additions for centerpieces, and boutonnieres. Don’t forget that accenting your floral arrangements with color is just as important to your overall theme.
If you do choose to go with a fall setting and time of year as suggested before make sure to use the season to your advantage. Use the rich fall colors of leaves to accent your table settings. Use branches and leaves as accents around centerpieces. This is not only a great way to add variety, but it is a way to save a little extra money with your theme because you can find most of the materials in your back yard.
This is just a simple way to start putting together your Orange Wedding Theme. Once you have your color palette selected and a basic Idea for your theme, you then need to start focusing on your venue. You may also consider hiring a professional wedding coordinator to help you get the most out of it.
