Who says bold wedding color palettes are just for summer? Although the warmest months may be behind us, things are still heating up in the wedding world. Case in point: This peppy palette of orange and sunshine yellow.

While it may be the ideal fit for a sunny, outdoor affair, there's no reason couples can't work these two bright tones into their wedding day. With a few adjustments, this palette can work for just about any wedding style or season. To make it work for you, pair these colors with lots of white, cream, or beige — anything neutral will help balance out the bold hues.
