Blue linens or blue incorporated into your cake would look really nice.

Cobalt blue is our main color – we’re using blue ribbon around each tier of the cake, having blue overlays on our tables and mixing blue flowers in with the green and white (our other main colors). Totally do-able! I love the blue and orange together, you should go for it!

It won’t clash, really, unless you pick light blue against burnt orange or something odd like that. Blue and orange are complementary colors, which means they look awesome together! Just use navy accents wherever–maybe charger plates, napkins, chair sashes, ribbons/detailing on centerpieces…

I love this color combo of the blue bridesmaids dresses with bright, and colorful bouquets.

You can work blue into your receptions with small accents or table runners. I would stay away from the blue flowers though- I think the orange and yellows would look great.

I agree with sbeedesign, try to keep the blue to the dresses and accents in the decor but keep the flowers to fall colors.  How exciting those are beautiful colors.

Perfect Palette is really fun blog  to check out if you’re trying to figure out color combos.

In fact, the last blog post featured on The Perfect Palatte was a blue and fall orange inspiration board.

I think the cobalt and the fall colors will go great together!

Good advice from everyone! I like the idea of navy accents (and dresses) while keeping the flowers orange/yellow/red.  Maybe even navy vases would look nice, although I don’t know if vases will be part of your centerpieces & decor.  You can do it!!

That’s pretty! Use it on your tables (as linen)

It sounds so pretty, I have never seen anybody use those combinations in real life!
