Wedding Color Trends: Be Bold with Orange
Embellish a Setting
Adorn a large gate with bands of roses to create a beautiful backdrop for the bride and groom. Add more color with an orange silk runner and copper troughs filled with miniature and standard cymbidium orchids.
Use Fruit as an Accessory
Add lemons, limes, and oranges to clear vases for an extra pop of color to an arrangement. Cut the fruit in slices or wedges, or leave it whole. Top off this cheerful arrangement with a mix of roses, gerbera daisies, chrysanthemums, and tulips.
Dress Up Your Bouquet
Add a rhinestone butterfly to a golden yellow and peach rose bouquet. Bold bouquet jewels, like this butterfly, or subtle accents, like petite pearls, are simple ways to dress up an arrangement.
Boost a Boutonniere
Amplify the color of the boutonniere with a wrap in a rich color. Use a wrap of orange ribbon and copper wire to highlight the orange tones in the flowers. Combine an orchid -- a classic boutonniere flower -- with a rose to make a colorful statement.
Make a Poppy Arrangement
Gather orange, yellow, and red poppy stems tightly in a tall slender vase, allowing the blooms to burst above. While poppies cannot handle the rigors of a bridal bouquet, they will make a stunning arrangement at your reception.
Spice Up Your Place Settings
Inspired Autumn Bouquet
Generous blossoms of orange and yellow dahlias and fresh green gladiolus make a bouquet cheerfully bright. The grouping is balanced with the deeper tones in orange montbretia, cockscomb, clover, and copper echinacea. Top off this seasonal bouquet with a plaid ribbon in your color scheme.
Drink Up a Signature Cocktail
Incorporate your color scheme into your cocktail hour with a signature drink. Sugar-coat the glass rims to complement the taste of pomegranate martinis, or try versions flavored with orange and apple juice.
Be Bold with Flowers
Create a bright centerpiece using ranunculus. Its exquisite blooms are available in a wide spectrum -- white, yellow, orange, scarlet, and emerald. Moderately priced and exceptionally sturdy, ranunculus is a justifiably popular flower.
