{Pumpkins, Gourds & Pie... Oh My}: Shades of Orange, Yellow + Ivory

October 13, 2009

{Shades of Orange, Yellow + Ivory}

A palette of orange, yellow & ivory really is quite fun. Wouldn't you agree? The colors orange & yellow have long been paired together but I don't think it's too often that you see them paired with this creamy ivory shade. Inspired by Martha Stewart's pumpkin centerpieces, I created this palette with Fall in mind. Some of my favorite items in this board include the bright orange bridesmaids dresses with necklines that keep things interesting & those gorgeous Fall bouquets. There is just something about orange & yellow that say "Let's celebrate!" don't you think? {continued...}

I chose a gorgeous pair of handmade earrings to compliment the bridal party attire & I imagined groomsmen in orange neckties. The 'Leaves Falling' collection by Wedding Paper Divas really set the tone for this wedding & tied the color palette together effortlessly. In lieu of the traditional wedding cake, I imagined serving up pumpkin pie! As a Fall bride myself, it's colors like these that really get me excited for my upcoming wedding. Oh & did I mention that it's only 11 days away? Yep, that's right, in 11 days I'm getting married!

There are links beneath the inspiration board that show you where I found these photos. As you can see, a source was not listed in terms of where these bm dresses are from seeing that these are someone's personal photos.

Courtney said...

Wow, my other half has been obsessed by burnt orange ever since we saw it on 'Don't tell the Bride'. I think he'll love this palette!

Hey ladies! The dresses at the top right come from The Dessy Group by After Six!! I searched and searched until I found them! The color is called Sunrise and it's an iridescent taffeta material. That picture is what made me fall in love with the color and my girls are wearing it for my wedding! :)
