I just did burnt orange and brown 3 weeks ago, but that’s a pretty fall-like combination. What about staying simple and doing white or ivory with burnt orange (go longhorns!)? =) I think it could be beautiful and fresh!

How about orange, light green, light yellow, and light blue? The light colors give it a very springtime feel and the orange will pop.

I was thinking orange and ivory/white/tan too.  :]

If your mind is set on orange, I like the orange and pink idea from kenziegirl. It sounds like it would be really unique together.

But if you’re too concerned with clashing with the wedding before yours, maybe go another direction. Think greens, yellows, pinks or a different shade or orange.

My wedding is in May as well. I’m going with a light peridot (green) with burgundy and ivory accents.

Good luck!

I was also going to suggest orange and pink, I’ve seen some lovely dahlia bouquets with this mix. But I would add in a metallic bronze to add a level of sophistication. click on link below and take a look at Alison and Jason’s bridal bouquet.

Also try going to http://www.colourlovers.com

You can create your own palette and also search for orange palettes.  It is not necessarily a wedding site, but I have found it very useful as I’ve been trying to decide on my own colors.  I have a couple of palattes I made with orange just for fun.  My user name on the site is "myweddingreport"

 The other great thing is after you select the color you can get the exact RGB #s etc if you want to use it for designs on invitations, website etc.  My Fiance is working on our website and has found it really helpful using that to make sure we are getting the right color.

We did orange and purple this past May, which was lovely and made our photos really pop. We used a bright orange and dark purple as well as lavender – I think the lavender accents helped to soften up the other two colors well. We didn’t use burnt orange, but I think it would still work if you used a plummier purple (a la Mrs. Margarita). My photos are posted on the Pics board, if you wanted to see what they looked like.

I recommend looking for orange bouquets & see which ones you are drawn to.  I think a purple and orange could look pretty, but sometimes you can find pretty 2-tone flowers to inspire your 2nd color.

I like the idea of orange and green…like a citrusy green.

There are so many colors that go with orange. I really like the orange, pink and chocolate as an accent. It really goes well with the burnt orange your looking to have. I say bright pink, not pastel at all. Have the colors be bright even accent red in if you want too instead of chocolate. Cut out pictures you like and it will come to you. Check all the knot color examples too, in flowers, decor and bm dresses. There are lots of pictures of the palette your looking at.
