{Dockside I Do's}: A Palette of Orange, Gray + White

{Shades of Orange, Gray + White}

One of the things I love the most is being able to provide you with answers to your color conundrums! So when I got the request to put together some inspiration for one of my reader's upcoming Summer wedding, I was definitely excited to go to work! She shared with me that she and her fiancee were planning on having a big crab feed at their reception and that they'd like to use a color palette that was unexpected and unique. So off to the drawing board I went... and here you have it! My take on a unique Summer palette. Orange is such a fabulous color to use for a Summer wedding, don't you think? {continued...}

And although I would have never had the gusto to pull off an all orange bridal gown, this bride surely is doing just that! Talk about a bold statement! When it comes to pairing colors, I think orange and gray surely go hand in hand. Throw in some fun accessories, mix in some unexpected patterns... and you have what I like to call a perfect palette. So what do you think? Are you finding yourself intrigued by this bold take on a Summer color palette?

This truly is an unexpected and unique color combination - I'm actually loving the orange with grey. I agree it goes perfect with summer and those crabs :) But, I can totally see this for a fun Halloween themed wedding too.

I love these colors together! I'm drawn to color schemes that are unexpected - the ones that sort of catch you off guard.

I'm completely in love with these colors!

Orange and Gray! Lovely combination. I just love orange hues on anything especially during summer. Bright orange on weddings is another alternative that I can look into. I can perfectly imagine them on the centerpieces, the wedding invite, souvenirs, name cards, and the like. This is just like yellow, you just cannot overlook orange. Thanks!

Thus, the maid of honor is in addition to the bride and groom with probably one of the most important people on the wedding.

Stress is often the trigger for such feelings that bring us out of balance. Therefore: prescribing you some peace - no wedding plans!
