Orange: For the Fall Bride

I know there are a lot of brides in the middle of planning a pretty fall wedding at this very moment. I know from my own experience that for fall brides, the winter brings a lull to the planning. The important things like the ceremony & reception venue, photographer and florist are booked. However, the wedding is too far out to get into all of the DIY details and detailed planning. So, the fall bride turns to her favorite blogs and websites to browse for inspiration that she can stash away for when the wedding date draws near. However, at this time of year, the inspiration found in blogs and magazines seems to be geared towards the upcoming spring weddings {and hopes of warmer, less snow-filled days} with the light color pallets and whimsy details.

So here's a little inspiration for all of the fall brides out there that might be incorporating a bold color like orange into their color scheme. I hope you likey.
The inspiration behind this post began with seeing this bouquet. So soft and pretty with roses and dahlias.
And the accompanying boutonniere is quite handsome. The groom looked quite dapper in his back suit and orange & brown tie {who says the Groom can't wear brown with's his day too!}. Bouquet and boutonniere by: holly heider chapple flowers

I love everything about this picture {below} even the capped and slightly poufy sleeves on the bridesmaids dresses. The bouquets wrapped in oversized ribbon, the lighting dancing on the field in the background and the smiles on all the beautiful faces add to the loveliness of this fall wedding.

A little orange in a reception venue can go a long way. Since orange is such a strong color, don't overuse it. Accent with other colors from your wedding color pallet for a lovely result.

Doesn't this just look like the picture that you want to define your wedding day? Pretty light from a pretty day, soft smiles and lots of love.
