Color advice please!
Posted: Apr 15, 2009 9:40 PM

I'm having trouble choosing colors! My favorite color is red, but i
really love how orange looks in weddings. So I think I'm going to use
the colors of the sunrise. Red, orange, and hints of yellow. I don't
want bm's dresses red or the table linens red. Does anyone have any
suggestions for this idea?

I love the colors you've chosen! I don't know what your style or the feel you're going for, but for dresses, depending on seasons you can go with a few choices, my favorite would be champagne dresses for the bridesmaids and linens it would be so lush with hints of gold or silver, and chocolate is another great backdrop for those colors...and they do offer chocolate colored tux's now so thats not an issue! If you want everything vibrant and bold you could go with yellow dresses!
it's pretty endless depending on you and the mood you want to set!
i can be reached at if you need any more ideas!!!

I have seen a lot of orange and pink in magazines this past year. It looks really fun and festive.

It's not red but pretty close I think they are sunset colors. I got married in a barn type building with rafters this is what I did with it (please click on link you might have to cut and paste it).
I had 22 tables I rented the linens I made all of the flower balls(hanging from rafters with fishing line) in 3 differant sizes(for sale) I did votive candles(for sale) and rose petals on the tables. I also bought terracotta pots and grew wheat grass in them. My girls wore tea lenght tangerine orange dresses from David bridal. We were married right outside the barn I used tiki torches for the isle. I made tissue paper pom pom flowers to hang from the ceiling. We made all our own food. It was a great time! I have a full list of the items I have for sale please email for that list, it is all being sold as a set it is a great price.
