Orange Wedding

Fall is such a beautiful season! The leaves turn different shades of orange, red, and yellow. Why not incorporate the season into your wedding with and orange color scheme? I found some really neat ideas for an orange themed wedding. This picture is a stunning example of how to make place cards and favors using the orange theme!

Another way to incorporate the orange into your wedding is by using orange themed invitations.
You can go with something a bit more modern than the usual cream colored invitation and choose a solid orange invitation with white lettering. The invitation pictured left is rather simple. It can be printed on your own, or I'm sure you can find this basic design at any wedding invitation printing shop.

I have also found another invitation that I like better than the modern simple one that you have just seen. This invitation can be made at home with only a few tools and looks sooo elegant!

All you would need is a color printer, a paper cutter, card stock, and a monogram embosser tool that you can find online. It's a pocket invitation. If you get this printed professionally, it will cost you a fortune, but if you make it yourself, you can have elegance without the price tag!

Here's a website where you can find monogram embossers :

Another thing that you should think about is whether or not to incorporate an orange cake into your wedding reception. If you do, this will draw all of the elements of your color scheme together and add coherence to your vision! I found a picture of an orange themed cake that I thought was very pretty. It's a white square cake with only two tiers. It's decorated with gum paste lilies that have orange centers. The other thing that adds to the elegance of this cake is a thin orange ribbon that lines the bottom of each tier. This cake is perfect for an orange themed wedding!

Another option for an orange themed cake is this beautiful four tiered cake with cascading gum paste cala lilies and an orange ribbon surrounding the diameter of each layer. In addition to these beautiful accents, there is some scroll work just above the orange ribbon that is very dainty and becoming on this cake.

Add these orange chrysanthemums to your bouquets if you are going with neutral toned dresses (browns, champagnes) or deep toned dresses (reds, blacks, blues). You could even incorporate these beautiful flowers into your decor.

Well...that's all I have for now. I'll keep you posted on more orange wedding ideas when I get a chance! I hope you find these ideas helpful! :)
