I think you can get away with any color, within reason. I think you can use a shade of orange as your base color. Here is a link with some "orange" colors.

I am partial to the amber. And depending on the shades that you pick you could put in some pinks, peach, etc. Or creams and whites.

I am not trying to be rude but it seems that you have asked this questions quite a few times. You have to remember that you can you any color any time of year that you want. It is really up to you. Have fun with it and dont let other people sway you.

I agree with Piggysk. I know Ive replied to your others. So like I said before, start with your favorite colors. Look through wedding mags. Perhaps go to HD or Lowes and spend some time in front of the color wall in paint. Look at the different oranges, find one you like and just start mixing. Im sure you'll find the colors to cure your itch. Just because its January doesnt mean you need colors to "match" that month. Im in October and using Browns, Greens, and Champagne. The month is just a month. And if anyone tells you "why orange?" just reply, "its my wedding, my day!" who cares what others think of your color choices. I hope I wasn't to blunt, you just need to keep these things in mind. No one can choose colors for you....

A January wedding works well with many colors. Any shade of blue, silver, and white are gorgeous choices for a winter wedding in this month. Although pastel shades are largely reserved for spring weddings, several pastel shades, such as ice blue or baby blue, lavender, or dusty rose are perfect “icy” options. Rich, deep, elegant colors such as the following also work well for a January or winter wedding:

Midnight Blue
Hunter Green
Deep Aqua/Turquoise
