Orange + Blue Wedding Colors Equal Fun and Fabulous!

June 10, 2010 by  
Filed under Wedding Inspirations

I’m very excited to be highlighting one of my favorite color combinations for this year – Orange and Blue!

The Invitations
Set the tone for your event with blue and orange wedding invitations and/or save the date cards. There are a lot of creative and stylish invitations out there. This one is from Invite Me.

Wedding Invitation - Turquoise and Orange Flower (sample)

The Venue
These colors are very fresh and flirty so they’ll work well at a beach or any outdoor wedding in the warmer months. If you’re getting married at a resort, be sure to get some great pics of your bridal party near the aqua blue pool – very striking with this color combo! Another great venue would be an orange orchard – just imagine the photo opps there!

The Attire
This is where the fun really happens! With this sometimes unexpected color combination, the style is most often on the casual side. Here is where a short bridesmaid’s dress would be totally appropriate. As for color, you can dress your girls in aqua blue with white and orange bouquets, or flip it around and have them wear orange and hold pretty blue flowers.

The bridesmaids above are wearing dresses from Aria Dress.
Whatever color you choose for the bridesmaids you may want to use for the men’s accessories – with a splash of the other color for balance.

Wedding Favors
You’ll want to be sure the wedding favors have meaning to your event’s theme. If you’re getting married at a beach, you may want to give these seashell scented soaps.

If you aren’t able to tie in the theme with the wedding favors, then be sure to associate the colors. Maybe some sweet treats in an aqua blue box with an orange ribbon.

The Cocktail
Try this recipe for a classic orange Negroni and garnish with an embellished aqua blue drink stirrer.

    Orange and blue are not obvious colors for a wedding but how well these work in the photos – they really show how fresh and uplifting they can be. The photo of the bridesmaids is, in particular, inspiring. Better than boring old white! I might well go for this…

  8. I really like your writing style, good information, thank you for posting :D . “In every affair consider what precedes and what follows, and then undertake it.” by Epictetus.

    I agree. These colors may not be your usual color combinations for a wedding motif but it does convey a summer theme. Having a motif for a wedding may be too mainstream but it does help anchor the event on some common theme that makes other decisions easier to make.

    Cheers!

Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks
