Orange and Aqua wedding colours

Recommended Posts

Oooh I needed this thread! So far my colors are teal and orange and I have been having the toughest time imagining how the table would come together. You all gave some great ideas - thanks!

Do any past brides with these wedding colors have anything for sale that they are willing to part with. Figured I'd ask here before I start buying everything I still need.

 

Thanks.

Hello ladies!

Also an orange/blue bride here. (Though my blue is much darker.)

Can't believe how much inspiration I'm getting from you girls! It's a hard color combo to get a lot of ideas from!

 

I'm getting married June of next year, and am using the bird of paradise as our theme. (It was the first flower arrangement he got me... when he was trying to win me over... ;D )

 

Been scouring the internet for Bird of Paradise invitations, and either I love them and they're too pricey, or they're just plain dull...

so I'm going to do-it-myself!

I made this design using Photoshop.

Just imagine this inside an orange pocketfold!

 

Then, someone else used this b4 too... but I loved it so much I have to steal!

Inspiration for my tablescape:

Our resort's restaurant only has the dark blue linens and only has long rectangle tables, so instead of that turquoise it will be dark blue, and the flowers, of course, I'm hoping to have birds of paradise. I'll probably have to bring the vases, etc... but I'll think about that when the time gets to it.

 

Oh, and for our napkins.. this bird of paradise fold, but in orange! I'm thinking about inserting the menu cards standing up... but we'll see!

Yay! What do you ladies think?

Thanks for your inspiration!

I am also using the same colors. When I figure out how to upload photos I'll send you a pic of our invites.

I'm having troubles finding the right BM dresses. My hope is to alternate between the 2 colors, since one of my bridesmaids refuses to wear orange.

That's also been a problem for me!

Not sure where to find a cocktail orange dress that the girls won't suffocate in.

Plus, since I am only having 3 bridesmaids, I was hoping to have my MOH in the blue.

Any ideas ladies? Would be very helpful!

I'm also an orange and aqua Bride-to-be! My girls' dresses will be a dark aqua and will have orange flowers, same with my bouquet (I think!) I'm still undecided on whether to have orange flowers or white orchids as my bouquet. Decor will be aqua and orange.

I just bought my bridesmaid dresses at the Limited and they are considered "turqoise" but look a bit more green to me (in person). I love them and they are super light and perfect for a beach wedding. I am thinking of using orange as an accent color and for the flowers since we are doing tropical lilies.

We are using a variation of orange - coral - and tiffany blue. Our accent colors are fuschia and lime green. I got the inspiration from the Real Touch florist that I'm using. I will post the bouquet pics as soon as I figure out how to put them up.

More brides with our colours - seems everyone is doing orange and fuschia! So glad there is this thread. My colours are truquoise and orange. Turqusoise is my main colour with splashes of bright orange.

I started a few DIY's this weekend as it has been a crappy weekend weather wise.....snow! Yes you heard right - the white fluffy stuff that comes at christmas, came knocking on our doors friday night and its still here...ugh! I hate living this close to the mountains sometimes....Calgary weather sucks! LOL On the bright side, I got some DIY"s done. I dont have any inspiration boards, but I can post what I have done thus far in those colours......

I have done my sandlewood fans as well as my OOT bag thank you tags. I am also working on the package I'm putting together to ask my FSIL to be my maid of honor. I will post that once I am done.

Oh and here are my monograms that were made by Becks from Allurements by Rebecca. She did a fantastic job and I would highly reccomend her if anyone needs a monogram done!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
