Orange is a warm tone that goes almost with all the rest of the colors and we have encountered it in so many wedding receptions and ceremonies that you just cannot imagine. This is a fine color that makes your event really friendly and you know just how important is to know how to combine colors is…. Let us also add that you have to focus on the colors with which you decide to use it and create a balance, not ending up with a wedding reception or ceremony that is entirely orange.

Orange, as we just have mentioned, goes really great with a great number of colors, starting from green, purple, pink, blue, brown, yellow, white, black or red. Make sure that you use these tones equally with our mentioned tone or you use strong variations of them in order to mild the orange effect.
Let us start with orange at the level of the wedding reception, shall we?
First of all, you have to know that the most common combination that we have observed to be used at the level of wedding stationeries is that between orange and white, more white than orange. In this point, we recommend the use of a white cardboard with orange details here and there and maybe a black writing to indicate the table seat number on it.
The same situation can stand for the wedding invitations, and this means that you have to know from the start what basic color you use for the future wedding. So, decide in due time for what tones you would love to apply for and you will have no problems when it comes to ordering them and making them as you have wanted.
The wedding flower arrangements are all about the strength of the colors used. You know just how many flowers there can be found in orange tone and sincerely we recommend you to combine these with other warm toned flowers, such as yellow, red or even tones which are not part of the warm field of colors, such as pink or purple. But the combination between orange and green is far away from being the most gorgeous and interesting of them all.
The situation stands in the same way for bridal bouquets and the flower arrangements used by the bridesmaids. Pay attention to the colors used next to orange, so that you end with a dazzling visual effect.
The wedding reception décor is also important and you have to pay attention as well, when it comes to combining orange with the other tones. We’re referring to the fact that you can use orange napkins, orange centerpieces with a lot of green around them and even the light can be in this warm tone that we have decided to talk about.
As for the wedding cake, we would like to advise you not to use a strong tone for it, because it is not going to look that great in an orange tone. There can be some cases in which you can do this, especially when you have chosen a fall wedding theme, in which the wedding cake can be designed in the shape of a pumpkin and made in a shiny texture, with other pumpkins around it. This is a particular way of expressing your wedding cake, but it isn’t bad at all. In the rest of the cases, avoid using a strong orange color; apply for a more faded one with white, yellow and even red.
The table cloths can be either made in an orange tone, which isn’t that strong, or made in one of the complementary colors that were mentioned in the first lines of our review – of course, adding to them table arrangements and pieces of décor, which have orange color.
The wedding ceremony can have a little bit of orange in it as well
Even if we’re speaking about the wedding flower arrangements that are attached to the chairs on which your guests are going to stand on, or if we’re referring to pieces of cardboard that are hanged on these chairs – in both these cases orange will go great with white, green, yellow, red and even brown.
The next stop is that for bridesmaid dresses
<-336x280 Large Rectangle - center->
An orange bridesmaid dress is not going to seem a good idea for many women, but you can try to make them put on one, just to see how they look in it. There are some tones of orange that advantage some skin colors and we do not see why they shouldn’t at least, put one just how to see how they look in it.
