I actually like the orange flowers. I can see how it can be viewed as looking like Halloween but as long as black and orange aren’t over done you’ll be fine.

I don’t think Converse are over done. I have been to tons of weddings in the past couple years and I’ve never been to one where the men wore converse. Even for those who wear converse on a daily basis didnt wear them on the big day. Now, if you look at wedding websites they are all over the place. I think that is why some people may think they are over done.

I love everything, but I am not crazy about the orange roses. I think that orange can definetley work since your wedding is in October. I think the flowers need to be more modern…maybe something like this.

Like it all except the Converse and orange flowers.

Like PPs suggested, maybe pink, red or apple green for accent colors?

I like it. Especially the dress and converse.

I agree with the person who said to try to find orange flowers that have a bit more yellow and green in them to break up the orange.

Also, I’d try to keep any direct black on orange out of it. For example, you could do a cneterpiece like this ↓ with black napkins and white napkin holders.

 

I’d say keep black and white as your main colors and only use orange for flowers. If you keep it classy and don’t do black on orange it won’t look halloween.

Defintely don’t go with yellow if your school colors were yellow and black!!!  My school colors were orange and black, so you can see why I would suggest something different!!! LOL!

I think everything looks great!  I honestly didn’t think holloween until others mentioned it, so I think you’re safe with the orange. I love the pop of color!

When I looked at it, I didn’t think halloween!  I thought the pop of orange color was great with the black and white!  I also think if the converse sneakers make you and Fiance who you are- go for it and rock it!

it is all very matchy matchy, theme-y even. If that is what you want, then go for it.

Personally I like the cake/dress/flower girl dress/chucks combo — the hair flower & bouquet I would personally change, but that is because I have a different personal taste.

Again i this is what YOU want & YOU love it, rock it.

I think everything goes pretty well together, but I do agree with all the previous posts about the flowers. Maybe go for a lighter or darker shade, instead of bright orange. That way you can avoid looking too “Halloween-ish”.

I’m kinda surprised that no one has mentioned this, but I’m not in love with the flower girl’s dress either. Its not that it doesn’t match, and i do think its a pretty dress, but personally I think its too dark of a colour for a kid to wear. So even though it works in theory, I don’t think it would best on your flower girl. I love seeing kids in colour so maybe you can use orange in that way too?

I love that everything is so coordinated!

If the orange is only going to be in the flowers, I’m not sure how that will tie in with anything else.

I’d say maybe just do the black and white, and do an all white or black and white bouquet.  I’m just not crazy about the orange alone.  Maybe I’d like it better if you were going to do flowers with orange and greenery and whites. But I love the cake inspiration for sure.

I loved it!!! It’s not too much, everything is so well coordinated! The only thing I didn’t like is Converse, I have to say! Orange is actually a good idea too, it pops out! Congrats!!

@dj:

It’s all great but I would replace the orange with hot pink.
