Orange + Blue Wedding Colors Equal Fun and Fabulous!
I’m very excited to be highlighting one of my favorite color combinations for this year – Orange and Blue!
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.
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!
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.
The groom above is wearing a bowtie from Me and Matilda .
Here is a showcase of the fun accessories we’ve found that would fit the blue and orange wedding color scheme perfectly!

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.
