My mother always said orange was her favorite neutral. If there’s one thing I learned at her knee, it was that her eye for color was impeccable. These days, orange is my favorite neutral, too.
Oh I know it’s a bright, aggressive color. I know a little can go a long way. I also know it goes with and brings out the best in a wide variety of colors. I also know it’s a wonderful color for a happy celebration like a wedding.
Not convinced? Take a look under the cut at the cheery gallery of orange wedding details I’ve put together. Please note that there is not a single one that looks like Halloween.
Flowers are an obvious place to start with any color, and orange is no exception. They can be dramatic, or they can be relaxed and sweetly old-fashioned.
The right invitation sets the tone for the entire wedding.
Of course, the decoration at the wedding site itself is a great place to play with color.
So are the reception tables,
and the cake table.
Don’t forget the wedding party!
Of course, my mother always said a good pair of orange shoes will carry you anywhere in style. Looking at these, I do believe she was right. Just imagine them peeping out from under your wedding gown, and see if you don’t agree with good old mom.
