Hi everyone, I just joined weddingbee and I’m excited to have a place to talk all about weddings!
So I was at a get together for the girls in my class (I’m in grad school), and we were talking about our wedding planning. When I told them a couple of the girls had a “ew those colors sound really gross” look on their face anddd I was a bit disappointed. I’d love to hear your opinions to see if I need to change colors before I really get into planning (wedding not until June 2014). Colors are orange and grey…bridesmaids will wear orange and groomsmen will wear grey. I also want some hints of yellow here and there. Thanks I appreciate your opinions!

I guess orange isn’t really a common wedding color but i think it can definitely be beautiful. Its bright and perfect for a summer wedding. Who cares if others don’t like it as long as you like it. And i think gray will compliment it nicely.

Depends on the shade of orange…it could definitely be really pretty if done right! :)I like grey for the groomsman, that is what I am doing as well!

@JRose6714: Nix the yellow…replace with ivory but I like the color combo. Its not for everyones taste but if you do it right its gonna be sharp.

@JRose6714: hi and welcome to the hive. i think those colours could be quite lovely together if you pick the right shades and use them wisely. i love the palette that @julies1949: posted.
google “grey and orange weddings” and click images. there’s so many beautiful ideas for your colour.

To be honest, when I first read your colors I thought “ew” but after seeing those pictures it is soooo beautiful!! When I think of orange, I think of like traffic cone orange (which most people do) and that is probably why they jump to that reaction. I really love the light orange and grey in the first picture above!! and the hints of yellow are beautiful too (I LOVE yellow and grey together).

@JRose6714: I think a tangerine orange would look lovely with a light grey. Yellow and grey have been really popular, so I think orange and grey could definitely work.
