Orange And Blue Are Complementary Colors

I have to admit, I haven’t chosen a color scheme. I’ve just been tossing around ideas for the last 8 months.


Here was my original inspiration for an “orange” wedding, via a Martha Stewart Weddings color issue. What truly excites me is that those diy poofy hanging flowers have my spherical ball shape that I’m obssessed with (more on that later). However, after looking at the orange flowers available, gerbera daisies (my favorite flower variety!) and tiger lillies just don’t cut it for me. Can’t they just carry an armful of satiny orange fabric?) Orange and blue are wonderful complementary colors!


So the best color on these fair beauties turned out to be navy. Look at the beautiful pintucking on the back of that dress from Frocks in Vancouver.

    Ahh! So glad to see this stream of thoughts from other brides. I’m also getting married in May and didn’t think it could possibly work to have baby blue and orange, but it works! My bouquet will be softer- more peachy orange with the light blue and some white lillies and orchids and my gals will have birds of paradise (which have both colors) and will pop a bit more. The guys will have just the spikes of the birds of paradise. It could be interesting!
