Sure, you could have the same old white wedding that brides have been doing forever, but why not try something a little more unique? For summertime, in particular, bright splashy colors are all the rage. One of the most dynamic color combinations that you can use for your wedding is fuchsia and orange.
Fuchsia and orange are both bold and
bright colors, and they pair very well. They create a look that is fun,
festive, and a little spicy. Choosing such a vivid color palette for
your wedding is a great way to add some personality to your event. It is
a color that makes a statement about the bride and groom: it says that
you are a fun-loving, stylish, and creative couple.
There are many
ways to use orange and fuchsia in combination. A great place to begin
is with the wedding invitations. For a romantic and luxe look, choose
letterpress stationary that has a fuchsia and orange floral design
pressed into a heavy cream cardstock. Have the writing done over the
floral design in a deep espresso brown. For brides who prefer a cutting
edge look, choose stationary in the hot fuchsia color, bordered by the
orange. For the lettering, use a modern san-serif font in the espresso. A
square invitation would add to the modern edge.
are always a key part of the color scheme of any wedding. If your colors
are fuchsia and orange, there are some very hot dresses that you can
choose for your attendants. A wonderful summer look would be a breezy
chiffon or organza knee length dress with spaghetti straps. You can
choose one of the colors for the body of the dress, and use the other as
an accent for sashes at the waist, or for borders along the hem.
Whichever color you use for your accent would also be a terrific idea
for the bridesmaid jewelry. You can have sets of bridesmaid jewelry
custom made in your wedding colors using sparkling Swarovksi crystals.
wedding flowers are another place to feature your palette. There are
some fantastic flowers available in both the orange and the fuchsia. The
two colors work very well together in the bouquets for the brides and
her bridesmaids.For the groom and his attendants, create boutonnieres
that feature a flower in one color, with the stem wrapped in a ribbon in
the other color as an accent. You can also think about mixing in a
sprig of berries in the accent color.
For the centerpieces, there
are a few different approaches that you can take. You can do the linens
in one color, such as the orange, and all of the flowers in the fuchsia.
Or, you can choose a more neutral color for the tablecloths, and let
all of the color come from the centerpieces. It would look fantastic to
combine the fuchsia and orange in each floral display. Another option is
to alternate having all-orange centerpieces on one table, and
all-fuchsia flowers on the next. This is a very chic and modern effect.
be afraid to use strong colors in your wedding. They will add such
style and individuality to your ceremony and reception. One of the most
vivid and striking color palettes that you can choose for your wedding
is fuchsia and orange.
