Hello- So my fiancé and I are torn about colors we’ll also I guess I don’t know what will go together.
She wants burnt orange and I want purple or teal- honestly I don’t like the pairing together. We have a mixed bridal party too so there will be more girls than guys and don’t want colors to be over bearing..

Our wedding is in August. We are pretty laid back. And colors I refused to do are Navy, Rose Gold or Brown. :-) thanks for help

    I think either of those would look good together! have you considered orange and a burgundy? I think that would look pretty too. I think doing the flowers and decor in those colors would look good and maybe gray for the girls and guys?

    I didn’t think of those colors together I didn’t know if orange and burgundy were to “fall” colors or if that even mattered. I guess I was so set on the colors I liked- mainly all things jewel tones but a burgundy could fall into that as well. I didn’t even think about gray either

    I don't think having certain colors for certain seasons really matters anymore its all your preference here's some ideas... I think gray would go nicely with any of these.

    Hi Natalie! I actually think teal, burnt orange, and purple look really pretty together! Have you considered using copper instead of burnt orange? Here are a few photos for inspiration:

    What kind of venue or style are you looking into? Maybe that will help you pick colors.

    You should look to see if there are many wedding products available is any of those colors. A friend picked dusty rose and a specific burgundy like color. She had a very difficult time finding any thing in the burgundy shade she wanted. So most of her wedding was just dusty rose.

    I am in the same boat! My colors are Royal Blue, Purple and Ivory. For some reason I have not been feeling the ivory and thought about swapping it out with white but everyone keeps telling me white would not look right and that I should stick with ivory.
