How About Orange!?

My post last week about using the blue hue family was one of my favorites. Inspired by the top left picture below, I wanted to continue the idea of using one hue family and create an inspiration board around the color orange.

I love orange when paired with a peach to make a creamsicle palette or with a hue of pinks for a fresh, preppy, romantic look. Orange works in the spring, summer, and fall. Are any of you using this bold color in your wedding?

for our wedding we chose to use blue & orange. the girls wore blue dresses and all of the flowers were a deep, almost burnt orange. the orange gerbera daisies against the girls blue dresses looked phenomenal in pictures.

although many people were aprehensive when they heard about our colors, they were astound at how fantastic they looked paired together; we had so many compliments on the colors, it was great.
