I think it sounds Halloween-y.  That’s not necessarily bad, though!  Some oranges are more pink, which would be less Halloween-y.  Could you put your MOHs in brown instead of black?

@Crystal30:  I love those colors because it’s my favorite hockey team’s colors.  Anyways, I was asked not to ever do it because it does look a bit halloweenish.  I’m sure you can incorporate orange in nicely.  I actually love orange and gray together.

Hmmm, I don’t think I would do orange and black. It may seem a little Halloween partyish. What about maroons, plums or browns? I’ve even seen a tiffany blue and brown combo in October and it was beautiful!

the wedding on the link above has those colours 🙂

I’m also Autumn, and having Orange, Purple and Ivory 🙂




cake also shows the colours, so you could have the full mix of colours in things like the cake, and use the others as accents if you were worried

Honestly, I am not a fan. Sorry!

What about putting all the girls in black and bringing in color with the flowers?

Kind of like this

I agree that it will look a bit Halloween-y.  What about navy blue?

I agree with the suggestion of bringing in the orange using flowers instead of having the BMs in orange dresses.

Maybe add in a third color like a deep red, dark pink or a navy blue?

As someone who went to a very orange school… orange is a HARD color for people to wear without it looking garish/costumey. I would suggest maybe a dark, charcoal gray, brown or navy blue and using orange as the accent – sashes, flowers, shoes, etc.

My colors are orange & green, and the girls are wearing grey. Orange goes great with so many colors- brown, grey, navy…actually, I think you can match it with anything, given the right shade.
