Too much or bright bliss? That is the question. The trick to pulling off this vibrant and dangerous colour scheme with style and flair, is to balance the colours. Using equal parts orange and turquoise, will confuse the eyes so decide which of the two will be your main colour and add plenty of white to turn it into a show stopper. If you love both colours. You can also soften the edges by adding softer shades of orange and turquoise to the mix.
If you’re daring enough to choose an orange and turquoise colour scheme, you have to commit to going all out as this isn’t a theme that can be pulled off in a half hearted fashion.
Think out the box! Paint the silver chandeliers bright orange, decorate the table with vintage turquoise enamel straight out of a farm kitchen and play around with origami name tags. Make it striking and fun, yet simple and elegant.
Because the colour scheme is so striking, it’s important to keep the elements and decorations as simple as possible. Instead of adding unnecessary bits and pieces to add colour to your wedding venue, ensure that your coloured elements are practical and “useful”. For instance, serve freshly squeezed orange juice and blueberry punch in glass bottles and decorate the tables with orange napkins and turquoise glassware.
While turquoise doesn’t offer much along the lines of flowers, orange is always in full bloom. Have your choice of marigolds, roses, tiger lilies and daisies to name just a couple. You can also play around with orange-coloured autumn leaves. Combined with fresh fruits like blueberries, oranges, sweet nectarines, it makes for a fresh celebration of colour.
