Some wedding decorations are just pretty, but when you design your wedding with the colours of pink and orange you can create a mood. Go bold and tropical with bright, vivid colours or go soft and subtle as you blend muted shades. Other considerations for selecting decorations include the texture of the fabric, the season for the wedding, and how playful or formal the wedding will be.
Tangerine and Fuchsia
Dress the bridesmaids in alternating dress colours, while groomsmen alternate vests and ties. The bride's gown has a fuchsia ribbon trim with crystals of tangerine, also in her hair, and the groom wears a fuchsia shirt with a striped tie. The colours carry through to the chapel with fuchsia pew bows and a profusion of fuchsia flowers, such as calla lilies, orchids or gerbera daisies, with tangerine accents, such as ribbons and vases. The reception hall alternates table linens of tangerine and fuchsia with a table runner holding the centrepiece similar to the chapel. Fuchsia ribbon weaves through open chair backs.
Rose and Peach
The rose gowns of the bridesmaids and rose shirts of the groomsmen accent the rose and peach flowers in the bride's bouquet and updo. Rose petals line the bridal path to the arch wrapped in rose tulle with an infusion of peach and rose flowers. Reception tables with rose lace layer floor-length peach linen cloths and contain peach table chargers and napkins holding a single rose. Rose taper candles surround a centrepiece of cascading rose and peach flowers. Flower choices include the rose, calla lilies, tulips or carnations.
Pastel Pink and Mandarin Orange
Bridesmaid gowns and the groomsmen vest are a pastel pink. Braided ribbons of pastel pink and mandarin trim the waist of the bridal gown and the train, while the groom wears a pastel pink shirt and striped tie. Braided ribbons surround the flowers for the bridal bouquets and decorate the end of the church pews as they form large ribbon bows. Pastel pink and mandarin candles cast a soft glow from the altar. Braided ribbons swag the mandarin tulle-covered walls of the reception area and the table linens of pastel pink. A candle scape of pastel pink and mandarin orange creates the centrepiece display.
Pink and Burnt Orange
A pink and burnt orange graphic checkered sash ties to the pink-coloured bridesmaid dresses and the cummerbund of the groom and his men. Checkered bows alternate with pink on the end of the pews, while vases hold pink and orange flowers, such as calla lilies, roses, freesias, tulips or dahlias. Pink, floor-length, satin table linens contain a lace burnt orange table runner and place mat with a pink plate and goblet. A centrepiece holds a horizontal display of flowers surrounded by candles.
