{A Summer Soiree}: Shades of Yellow, Orange & Gray

April 8, 2010

{Yellow, Orange & Shades of Gray}

Nothing says fun like shades of yellow and orange! Add in a touch of smoky gray and see how these fun colors are kicked up a notch by sophistication and elegance. I've long been a fan of pairing these colors together and I hope you can see why. There is just something special about how these colors come together to communicate all kinds of good stuff! I had a lot of fun putting this palette together! Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the creative table setting that incorporates a cross word puzzle about the newlyweds, the beautiful pattern on the table runners and those fun accessories like that funky gray clutch & of course the amber jewelry! So what do you think about this palette? Can you see yourself using these colors?

If given the chance to marry my hubby all over again, this palette would definitely be at the top of my list of colors to use! If you know me, then you know I L-O-V-E orange and yellow. But that's not to say that it's for everyone! Some people are just not fans! But for those of you who are...rest assured you're not alone! There is something so fun about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who will consider this for their upcoming 'i dos'? I hope so!

i am SUCH a sucker for that color yellow...we use it alot! I love it with orange because they are so close in tone, that it's unexpected!

I am having issues with my wedding colors!
I have a summer wedding (June 2011), but I really would love to use a wine or burgundy color in my wedding scheme. The problem is, every color scheme i've seen using burgundy is very winter-ish. How can i incorporate a burgundy-like color into a summer wedding? I was thinking using a wine color and having coral and gray accents, but i dont know! Any ideas?

I'm not nearly the palette-master that you are, but this is what I was experimenting with on the Dessy Group site:

I love your board. I only found it by accident (a very happy accident!) a week or two ago.

Would you mind doing a storyboard in the colours I have below? I'm having a wedding on the beach and I want it to be very pretty and romantic. I'd really appreciate your insight :)

Hi Chrissy,

I need your help! I am getting married in October 2011 and I haven't picked any colors. I dont want to take the traditional route and do red and orange. I love the above palette but I also love green and blue. Any ideas?
