Ok everybody, I am having a fall wedding and I’m having trouble picking out my colors! Thought about my bridesmaid in orange and my maid of honor and matron of honor in black..I’m terrified of this lookin to halloweeyy?!? I am gonna have them holding ivory flowers to not make it look to orangy! and I’m having fall leaves everywhere with decoration! What do you guys think?? Thanks so much!

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 do not like it at all. VERY halloween.

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.

you guys are awesome! I actually thought about all black and bringin in the orange/fall flowers!! I’m only having two in black, and the orange that I went with is a VERy bright burnt orange, to try and get away from the halloweeny look! I got a lot of thinking to do, cuz I like the colors I’m jus afraid of the halloween look..Also I’m puttin fall color mums all around, so I thought for a sec that the two girls that wld be in the black wldn’t be too bad!? Thanks guys for all ur comments they have really helped me!

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.
