Just wondering if anyone has any input on this. I am using a bright orange for my main flower–I want two other colors in the bouquets for the centerpieces. I am thinking cream and peach–but I’m not sure that looks good! I feel like a white might be good, but then it will take attention off the orange and I don’t want that to happen. I want the orange to be the main color, the others supporting. But will peach look right?
Any and all suggestions welcome!

I know this probably isn’t really what you’re after… but I love orange and hot pink together.

Thats so funny because I was just going to say how I love orange and hot pink together! That being said, I think the orange, peach and white would look fine. IMO there ae no bad color combinations — almost any combo looks good together if done right. Are you bringing any additional accent colors in your wedding — such as the aformentioned pink or maybe yellow? Also, consider that your arrangements will probably have some green in them (depending on type of arrangement), so that might be an additional color already included, in which case i thikn orange and white (or ivory) would look nice with the natural green accents. Hope this helps!

I just flipped through a flower book and there are a number of orange/peach/white or off-white combinations. It looks lovely! I don’t think white takes too much attention away from the orange, either, so I wouldn’t worry too much about that.

<font face=”Times New Roman” size=”3″>You can always go to your florist and see what she can pull out of the cooler – to see how your flowers might actually look together. I though I had some fairly non-standard color and flower combination ideas, but my florist was also able to pull photos of bouquets that looked a lot like what I had in mind.</font>

A bright green like bells of ireland will intensify your orange and make it pop. You can add in bright red, or hot pink like someone suggested. also yellow looks great. I’m making orange bouquets this weekend and for the mockups those colos look great together.
