{Palette Love}: Orange + Yellow

June 28, 2011


I don't think it's any secret that I'm all kinds of 'in love' with bright, vibrant colors like orange + yellow. Positive, uplifting, fun and modern, these are the kind of colors that make me happy. Are these colors that I would like to see everyday, for instance, in my house? No, definitely not. I think that's why they're so appealing to me. They are a far cry from the everyday colors I surround myself with. They're exciting! Looking for an unexpected palette for your Spring or Summer wedding? Consider choosing this modern & lively color palette!

We first shared this palette back in October of 2009...here. And although we put a Fall spin on it, and added a touch of ivory... it really surprised me in terms of the number of people who seemed to really adore this palette. I have to admit, I can definitely see why! This palette is just bursting at the seems with fun energy! Let's just say...this is definitely not your grandma's color palette. So what do you think? Is this unexpected palette catching your eye?

{Color Tip:} The best locations to use bright, vibrant colors are definitely places like beaches, destination weddings, and/or anywhere tropical! These colors also work great for any season, but are most perfect for Spring, Summer and Autumn.

So are you loving this palette? Dare to use it at your upcoming wedding? We love this fun palette and we hope you do too! Tell us all about it!

It is so common to see these colors used in fall but I love to see them in a Summery way! Gorgeous!

I love anything with orange in it thanks to my alma mater! lol. The last three colors in that combo are my favorite together! Reminds me of my wedding colors which was orange and white. :-)

Fresh and inspiring, indeed! I adore citrus tones for Southern California summertime weddings, especially in Palm Springs where citrus trees are abundant!

Look for the bride kidnapping and that this drags on not too long. Otherwise there is the danger that tears off the wedding.
