Recently Weddings have been very toned down with a lot of pale pastel shades and neutrals, especially with the vintage and shabby chic trends dominating. However bright colours are back for Weddings and I have a lot of Brides who have chosen brights like teal or purple for their main colour.
One colour that is due to be huge for 2012 is orange. I had a couple request an orange, yellow and green theme for a party and to be honest I wondered how it would all work together but I was pleasantly surprised how stunning orange can be. Check out my Pinterest board for more ideas.
So here's some inspirit ion for a bright orange and yellow Wedding. It's the perfect antidote to Winter gloom. Orange drinks in glass bottles from Country Girl Wedding work perfectly for this theme. Pop in some stripy paper straws and let people serve themselves.
I love paper lanterns shown on The Knot and these orange on are gorgeous for adding warmth to your venue. They look particularly good in marquees and strung outdoors.
Orange flowers work well with the lanterns as shown below in the great picture from Offbeat Bride
I mentioned the trend for big round balloons last year and these orange and yellow one look fantastic in photos. This picture is from Green Wedding Shoes, taken by Priscilla Valentina
To make an orange theme work, think rustic summer or it also translates well to autumn, incorporating fallen leaves in reds and oranges. Don't forget to add a subtle touch of orange to the cake too.
