Color help please!!!
Posted: Sep 4, 2009 9:50 PM

Ok so i have finally decided on a color for my wedding!!!! The only problem is im not exactly sure what accent colors to do with it. So if ya'll could give me your opinions that would be way helpful.

So my main color is going to Alfred Angelo's burnt orange.

I'm getting married the weekend after Thanksgiving.

And also any ideas on center pieces?

Thanks so much!!!

You could do a number of things with burnt orange. Since it is a darker, fall color, you could pick almost any color and it would still look great for the time of year.

Maybe you could use the butterfly in some of your decor. Even if you aren't a fan of butterflies in general, maybe tuck one into each centerpiece.

Burnt Orange with a shade of brown (whether it be Chocolate or Maple) and Ivory/Champagne is one of my favourite colour combos!
I also like it with Navy Blue, or Olive Green, or Plum Purple, or shades of Grey

For centerpieces, there are some beautiful flowers that you could use in orange like roses, calla lilies, orchids, and butterfly weeds. I also found a few things that are great fall-ish/thanksgiving-ish decor pieces:
Reception, Fall, Centerpieces, Autumn, Gourds

Reception, Centerpiece, Orange, Brown, Candles, Pumpkin

Reception, Centerpiece, Floating candle

Flowers, Reception, Pink, Centerpiece, Red, Orange, Yellow

Reception, Orange

Alfred Angelos burnt orange reminds me of the trees in fall, maybe you could incorporate that into your scheme kind of tie it all in. But without a budget I really couldn't give a suggestion of center peice. I am in school right now for wedding planning, i hope one day to take it professionally, but I am still learning. good luck to.

Color really depends on time of year and what mood you want to set, an example of color setting mood, a winter wedding being held in a cabin with snow on the ground, a tiffany blue with a mocha would really set a cool but romantic setting. A thanksgiving wedding that wants to incorporate fall colors like burnt orange and maple, I would make a center peice with a tall center peice with some burnt orange orchids and some dark green shrubberies, if a romantic setting is what your after a few voitive candles hanging from some branches on the centerpiece and kind of placed around the bottom on the table with some low over head lightning would add an elegant touch with out breaking the wallet.

Well we are getting married the Saturday after thanksgiving so I'm def going for the thanksgiving look. I really am not sure of a budget...well at least not for center pieces however i am trying to keep that kind of one the low end.

I was really leaning toward the burnt orange, dark brown, and ivory. I was thinking about doing the orange bridesmaid dresses with ivory tulips wrapped in a brown ribbon.

So i was thinking of some how incorporating tulips along with the colors for our center pieces.
