Orange, Black and White
Posted: Oct 3, 2008 1:29 PM

New Here...and need HELP!!

I have exactly 1 YEAR to plan this. I do not want to be a bridezilla.

Here is my problem. We are having the reception at AT&T Stadium, where the San Fransisco Giants(his favorite team) play. In their clubhouse. I figured it was his first wedding and my second, it should be as much his dream day as mine, if not more. Afterall I am getting the dream man. Being at the park I would like to add a bit of baseball/Giants to the theme. The problem is their colors are orange, black and white. I do not want it to look Halloweenie! I would love some help in this department. Any ideas or suggestions, pictures would be FANTASTIC!

I was thinking of adding Monarch butterflies(which I love) to the mix, but I don't want a butterfly theme. The colors would at least fit in.

Thanks,
Kisa

Do you plan on using the Giants shade of bright orange as your colour?  If not, I would say use a deep orange or burnt orange shade instead (something like Alfred Angelo's Cinnamon or burnt Orange).  To me that says "fall" more than it says "halloween", even when combined with black and white, which would be perfect for an early October wedding.  You could also add accents of antique gold or bronze to play up the fall feel.

I'd go to extremes with the colors. Or use a LOT of one color over the other. Like lots of orange/white rather than a lot of orange/black. Like maybe the only black can be the guys attire and some accessories?

Or maybe a slight variation of the orange to a burnt fall look.

Too much orange and white looks like the Vols. 

I like the idea of using a lot of orange (maybe shades of orange?). I love orange.

Or maybe go with classic black and white for dresses and the tables and decor, and shades of orange for the flowers only?  The girlie floral thing might lessen the impact of the color combination...

How about Ivory, black accents, and a few shades of orange.  Coral, golden orange, reddish orange.  Ivory seems like it would compliment orange better than stark white.



 

In other words, I love you.
