I live in Illinois and it gets pretty cold, and everything will be dead and gone so using alot of fall items would prob look odd, because it looks more like winter. I really wanted to use some pumpkins!! My fiance loved black red and silver, What if I used the black, silver and red with some orange?! Or am I totally nuts 😀 Like orange and red bouquets, black dresses with silver sash. Or just a silver dress? I could use those silver twig thingys in my centerpieces, and still use some orange and red leaves scattered, or maybe just red rose petals and still place very few pumpkins here and there?! Will this look bad???

I think it would look fine but if overdone may lean a bit toward Halloween. So just be careful. My wedding is in Nov and we’re doing navy and silver with cream accents (table cards, menus, etc).

Love the twing thigns that looks interesting and neat..But it is your day so whatever you choose will look good..I think adding some orange here and there would be awesome like in your boquet and little accent that would be cool..

what about white pumpkins? I’m 3 weeks before you and we’re using white pumpkins here and there as decor.
Orange is an awesome color too! It will definitely pop but if you are more concerned about the time of year and matching, i would go with white pumpkins

I would only use the orange in the flowers to add depth to the red bouquet and in the pumpkins. Otherwise it will look like halloween. For floral arrangements I would use a mix of red and orange shades so it all kind of blends together across a spectrum rather than being a flat two tone of red and orange, if that makes sense.

The orange and red would look good together, just not sure about the pumpkins.

I agree with PP that the orange and red aren’t bad, it’s just the pumpkins. I would think you got them on sale at discount after Halloween.
What about highlighting the silver accents for a more winter feel?

Orange and silver are hard to mix so I’d be careful to keep those two shades to a minimum–especially together. And black and orange obviously look a bit halloweeny when put together. I do think you can do your scheme. I’d keep the red nice and bright (no maroons)

Thanks for the help! I like the idea of some whtie pumpkins. maybe I will use those instead. However, if I decide to do more of winter decor…would it look bad because it will technically still be fall?

I did black, silver, and red for my november wedding. I loved it! Not too much and not too much winter/christmas.
