Color Palette Inspiration: Orange

london wedding blushandwhimsy 22 Color Palette Inspiration: Orange

When brides and grooms think of orange color palettes they usually think of Fall weddings but orange actually makes for a lovely color palette as we head into Summer. If you’re not looking for something as bold as orange perhaps try out coral or peach since they are on the softer spectrum of this daring color. Orange can easily be combined with other colors like fuchsia, purple, or red for a vivid and festive wedding scheme. Stay away from combing with colors such as blacks and browns as this is what will make it look more like a Fall wedding rather than a bright and cheery Summer wedding! Remember even oranges themselves can play a part on your big day whether your mixing them into drinks or use them as decoration on your cake! Happy Planning!

Bright Orange Wedding Ideas

It’s the summer time, and summer is all about bright bursts of color! There have been a lot of summer weddings showcasing fresh coral, mint, and blush, so why not choosing a color that’s a little different? Orange, though not a commonly chosen color for a bride’s color palette, is a fun and refreshing color! It serves as a great accent color if your choosing more neutral tones for your wedding (goes great with navy, blush pink, or cream tones). You can pair orange with an unconventional color like purple, or with other tropical tones like fuchsia. We absolutely love the pop of color it gives in photographs! Will you be using orange for your wedding?

A Colorful Destination Wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico

cabo destination wedding A Colorful Destination Wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico

Gloria and Fernando hosted their destination wedding in Los Cabos, Mexico.  Having been to many other weddings, Gloria knew exactly what she loved most and what they were looking for.  “The best weddings I have ever been to were at a beach. I love the whole idea of having a destination wedding since it is not just one day; it is a whole weekend of festivities. Besides that, everyone is super exited since they are taking a long weekend to travel!”

The adorable pair met long ago at a bar…later that night Fernando added Gloria as a friend on Facebook and the rest was history!  They have been practically inseparable ever since!

“It was not a big wedding (at least not for Mexican standards). We had a great time spending lots of time with our friends and family. We also had enough time during the night to spend with each guest. They all made a huge effort to go to the wedding so we really wanted it to be something special for them. It was a wedding of my dreams!”

The reception, though not large in size, was full of personal and oh-so colorful details!

A Colorful Destination Wedding in Malaga, Spain

Teresa and Todd traveled all the way to Malaga, Spain for their fun and festive destination wedding!  Set to the backdrop of the Mijas Mountains, this beautiful wedding was complete with laughter, love, and a lovely orange inspired wedding cake too!  The couple, who met in Hoboken, New Jersey call themselves “nerds” and as such, exchanged chemical formulas on a bar napkin before falling in love and eventually exchanging vows.

Todd and Teresa have a shared love of Seville, Spain where Todd taught English and Teresa attended the University of Sevilla during a semester abroad. Both fell in love with the city and the culture, and Teresa in particular with the Flamenco.  The exotic dance was even woven into their wedding theme!

Orange was the focal color for the day.  The bride carried a bright beautiful bouquet while her maids carried orange fans with blue lace to pay homage to their Spanish location.

After the ceremony, the reception was set for the intimate crowd around a beautiful pool and garden.

Since Todd is a teacher who focuses on protecting the environment, it was important to them to use natural elements in their wedding.  The tables had burlap runners and they incorporated wooden circular tree rings in their design.

Favorite memories for the couple? “A friend playing the flamenco guitar during the wedding ceremony and a flamenco show during the reception, along with the speeches that Teresa’s best friend and Todd’s best man made. They were straight from the heart and incredibly touching.”

A Cabo, Mexico Destination Wedding by the Beach

Cathy and Josh planned a fun and festive destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  The couple clearly let their personalities shine in this big event, and guests enjoyed every minute of it!

The pair said “I do” at Hacienda Cocina y Cantina, a place they both fell in love with during their search.  Josh was away at sea working as a United States Merchant Marine so planning a destination wedding was a bit of challenge.  But Cathy’s dad stepped in and helped out when she needed it, making sure the day was just right for this happy couple.

The color palette was a cheerful blue and yellow with pops of pinks and orange.  Talk about a celebration!

Cathy and Josh met through Josh’s little sister who had a hand in putting the pair together.  She insisted repeatedly that he needed to meet her friend Cathy.  And once they did, the rest was history!

Fuschia and Orange Destination Weddings

Fuschia and orange – two popularly paired wedding colors but when it comes to destination weddings, they are perfectly!  Think brightly colored on the beach in Mexico or on the grass looking over the ocean in Hawaii.  This perfect couple make for a lively, celebratory and exciting palette for a wedding anywhere in the world!

Rebecca and Michael held their destination wedding in a spectacular park in San Francisco; but not just any park – the Golden Gate Park.  Hidden beneath beautiful trees, a sweet ceremony with an intimate crowd of friends and family stood by their side as they said “I do.”

Cabo Azul Resort Destination Wedding in Mexico

cabo mexico destination wedding Cabo Azul Resort Destination Wedding in Mexico

Brittney and Chris said “I do” in Cabo, Mexico at the popular destination wedding location, Cabo Azul Los Cabos.  With just 25 loved ones present, this intimate event was filled with special moments, and even a few surprises.

Brittney told us all about their big day.  “Our color palette was navy, off white, and a pop of Orange! The venue was stunning with little decor needed, however I love the simple beauty and elegance of fresh flowers. The flowers are what I used to bring in the orange into our wedding colors. I really wanted our guests to take in the beautiful resort and ocean view we had during the entire day so I wanted to keep the feel of romance and simplicity that the crashing waves in the background presented by having candles lit all around the outdoor reception area and at each of the tables for our guests.”

Why a destination wedding and how did they select this spot?  “Chris and I started our engagement with him down on one knee at the base of a 300 foot waterfall in Maui on vacation and we knew that our wedding must follow suit. With our shared love of traveling we began researching locations for a destination wedding that was more than just ‘a wedding on the beach’. We landed on images of a four story open-aired chapel in the center of a stunning resort overlooking the beach of San Jose del Cabo. Just three months later we were touring Cabo Azul, and from the very first steps in the chapel Chris and I both knew this is where we were meant to marry. The chapel was modern, ornate, and romantic with the most breath taking view.”

 “I remember waking up that morning and sitting on my balcony watching the sunrise and the warm breeze running through my hair. There was such a warm, comforting feeling in my heart that this was truly the perfect place to start our life as husband and wife. Sara (Richardson Photography) truly captured every emotion and special moment of our day from feeling anxious and excited getting ready, to the emotional walk down the aisle to my reaction to the firework show my husband had surprised me with, to dancing all night long with our loved ones.  This may sound cliché but honestly find a photographer that will capture your day exactly how you dream. In the end you will forget if your flowers weren’t perfect, or if your cake wasn’t the best, but will you will have one thing forever to remind and reminisce your special day and that is the photographs.”

destination wedding in cabo Cabo Azul Resort Destination Wedding in Mexicowedding photographer in cabo Cabo Azul Resort Destination Wedding in Mexico

The couple not only loved their photographer and ceremony site, but the location provided the perfect reception spot too.  “It did not stop at the perfect chapel for the ceremony because we all know that a majority of the time of the wedding day is spent at the reception. Javier’s is the resort restaurant that is rested right along the beach with a patio that is surrounded by torches that added to the romantic feelings we shared on our wedding.”

“There truly was something to cherish in each small moment of the day. I suppose one that took me for surprise was during dinner… Sara Richardson, our photographer asked that she steal us for a moment as their happened to be a full moon that night (surprise to me as we chose this date because I love the 4th of July aka fireworks ;), so we went to the side of the reception area so she could capture some pictures of us with the gorgeous moon behind us…. well instead fireworks suddenly exploded right over us!! Chris had somehow snuck around and planned with our great wedding coordinator Maria and gave me the present of my dreams– my very own firework show!”

Orange Weddings

Yesterday’s coral and orange wedding in Portugal got my mind wandering about the lovely (and oh-so October perfect) palette of orange.  The color works wonderfully in many countries – the bright cheerful hue can be found across the globe.  So if you’re gearing up for a brightly colored destination wedding next summer or perhaps about to host a fall fete in the color fitting of the season, then take a look at these orange wedding ideas.
