Orange Rising

Orange is a color that is rising in popularity for weddings, and yet it is still offbeat enough to feel fresh and original.  

Can you imagine using orange in with a rich chocolate brown or a velvety creamy taupe.  How about a deep navy or copper.  Not to be forgotten for the contemporary bride orange with the popular celery green or hot pink even a spash of lemon yellow with these would be striking.  I have even seen orange with a soft sky blue. 

Roses are always beautiful but the Naranga really captures the essence of the deep bright orange that can really make your bouquets pop.  Luecospermum "Tango"and peach hypericum berries, "Tang" dendrobium orchids, Dahlia's and Cockscomb are all  great orange flowers that add a richness and unique flavor.  Tulips come in a large variety of orange and peach tones.  And not to be forgotten vibrant orange Gerbera Daisies.

Orange can be used in a variety of wedding styles and can be beautiful.  If you are looking to make your wedding bouquets and centerpieces unique and vibrant, consider the orange colored flowers.
