Every bride has a favorite color that she wants to incorporate in her wedding. But there are many couples who have different preferences when it comes to hues and nuances. Well, those who can’t seem to find a middle way to solve this issue should simply choose red! This color is versatile enough to help them create a stunning décor for the wedding that can fit both their visions.
We believe in the magical beauty of red and in its power of transforming a standard predictable wedding into a spectacular event everyone will remember! Many brides-to-be adore this nuance because of its vibrancy, boldness and opulence. This color is sophisticated and extravagant and it can fit perfectly the glamorous type of brides who want something outstanding for their wedding.
Grooms who dislike this hue or want something close to red but different can be persuaded to opt for a dark red or for a scarlet-russet theme. The dark tones are usually more fitted for autumn or winter time weddings. But if you’re planning a summer time reception in the after-noon or during the evening, then a more whimsical type of red décor is actually what you need!
Nevertheless, our proposal for today is even more special and unique: burnt orange. The images we’re presenting here come in a hypnotic red and burnt orange color-scheme and this is why these decorations look so deep and imposing.
These two nuances are some of the most powerful hues that a couple can use in their wedding and so we are very confident that bold brides and grooms will get inspired by these fabulous creations. Those who want to incorporate red in all the wedding items should also consider purchasing red outfits for them as a couple and for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. The girls can wear red wedding dresses or shoes – which will add a sparkling touch and an eye-popping effect. Dark red suits and whimsy red boutonnieres can fit perfectly the groomsmen.
The red hue can also be used for the other principal aspects of the wedding, like the invitations, table flower centerpieces, dishware, cakes, décor arrangements and favors. For red themed wedding favors we recommend fresh fruits, like cherries, strawberries or red hot candies. You don’t have to necessarily use red items, but wrapping them in red paper or adding a red ribbon or detail would be a great idea.
As for the table centerpieces, you can also choose to use fruit trays with flower accents. Exotic flower assortments are great for a red or burnt orange themed wedding. Use stargazer lilies, hyacinths, parrot tulips, ranuncluses, gerberas, amaryllises, peonies, gloriosa lilies or sweet peas.
Brides who are still looking for unique flower ideas that can help them create a more attractive and romantic décor for the wedding should stop for a few minutes to browse these pictures. These arrangements are creative, artistic and also very fun! They were meant to fit the preferences of contemporary couples and also to reach their expectations. We know that brides of today can get really pretentious and exigent when it comes to the décor ingredients: colors, flowers and textures. They prefer something versatile that can fit a more relaxing type of venue and also a stylish elegant formality.
Well, there is really no need to worry because the ideas we show here are fickle enough to fulfill your deepest desires. But let’s see what designers did for these wedding projects! We should tell you that all these fancy arrangements were created for 2010 weddings, so these are among our favorite decorations. They can still work for 2011 and 2012 affairs because their design is fashion-forward and yet grounded in tradition. The first picture reveals a romantic & fun ceremony décor made of paper flowers. The garlands are festive and cheerful because of the vibrant summery colors of the paper.
This crafty style is unique and it can make a more original alternative to the traditional wedding ceremony decorations. These garlands can be made by a professional and be bought from a craft store, or they can be handmade by the bride and groom. The DIY style is trendy, affordable and original! This décor is ideal for alternative-chic ceremonies. The paper flowers are created by Dolci Odille.
The second wedding flower idea we have to present in this article features a purple and blue theme. The decorations you can admire in the second image are created exclusively for long reception tables. The designers and florists opted for various lush flowers in shades of purple, mauve and blue. We glimpsed a few tulips, hydrangeas, muscari and hyacinths. The violet napkins and the glass candles add a romantic ambiance to the reception. These fancy arrangements are provided by Claire Bean Floral & Event Design. We see them incorporated in vineyard or destination weddings.
Moving on, we find a beautiful floral design created by KD&J Botanica for brides and grooms who want something simple, chic and trendy. We love the florists’ idea of placing single blooms in vintage vessels. The effect is striking! These decorations feature a ravishing pink and silver theme and we are pretty sure they will convince many brides to adapt this style for their own wedding. They can look fabulous and elegant on simple adorned wedding cocktail tables. Good-luck with the planning!
Brides & grooms who are lucky to be planning a garden wedding could use more inspiration for the decorations. You know the details and the accessories make a nature-inspired wedding look more inviting and unique! So take your time in investigating the most inspiring and original ideas and wedding projects we have on this topic and then select the bets one for you.
Don’t rush into making the final decision without consulting at least three different types of wedding styles of this kind. The choices are numberless and all unique, so make sure you pick the most adequate and special design.
Garden-inspired weddings offer the couple the unique opportunity to plan a cheerful, natural and cozy reception. The organic style is highly trendy these days for weddings and it seems to be getting even higher in vogue. Don’t hesitate to adopt it for your own wedding because it will bring you pleasure and delight. Planning an outdoors wedding is in generals a chance to get more creative and design an artistic original décor.
You should start by selecting the best venue that can fit both the formality of the wedding and your personal vision. Then you have to pick a theme that can also suit these coordinates. Don’t forget that everything has to be well-planned so that it makes a unified inviting set. The details are of a maximum importance and they have to be chosen with care and attention.
Romantic brides who want a classy wedding with a vintage/antique twist can opt for an English garden wedding and use a Victorian or Renaissance theme. Gazebo settings are also trendy and adequate for romantic couples who prefer a sumptuous ceremony and reception.
When it comes to colors, the most fitted ones for garden venues are the greens, the pink ands the browns. The pastel color palettes are perhaps the most inspiring ones because they contain soft springy nuances. The flowers are the most important “details” you have to plan with extra care and attention because they will add the elegance, the opulence and the style that are specific to garden affairs.
The ruffled blooms are the ones we recommend with confidence for a lush lavish set. Use as many floral touches as possible for the corners of the wedding and for the tables, so that you can obtain a luxuriously natural and sophisticated décor. Use fresh flowers that are available in your season to make it all look realistic and cheerful. The assortments that are “recommended” by the seasonal palettes are usually more affordable in prices than the exotic blooms and more appropriate for outdoors receptions than the paper or other crafty decorations.
You don’t have to be a romantic person to love flowers or to cooperate with the idea of using a floral motif in your wedding. A wedding just wouldn’t be complete without the flowers and this is true for both romantic and non-romantic couples. Also, it doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself a classic or a modern couple. The usage of flowers in a wedding is not only a must, but mandatory!
There are no other decorative items that can help you create an elegant, warm and inviting wedding reception for your guests than the flowers. You have to purchase flowers to decorate and create the bouquets, the boutonnieres, the corsages, the chairs, the table centerpieces and the wedding cake.
You can even use flowers to adorn your bridal look, by placing some blooms in your hair or incorporate a floral motif in your gown. When it comes to wedding cakes, flowers are the traditional way to decorate both classic and contemporary confections. Anyway, the cakes we brought here are ideal for different types of weddings.
These cakes are haute couture and they elevated fancy look can reach the highest expectations. We are pretty sure their exquisite beauty can convince even the most pretentious and picky couple. To adorn your cake you can use fresh, craft or edible flowers. The effect will be splendid either way!

We adore Spanish style weddings because they always feature bold, daring and eye-popping colors. The decorative elements that are specific to the Mexico region are also dramatic and visually very attractive.
The colors, the style and the trends of the Mexican culture are surely one of a kind and they always make an eccentric apparition in a wedding. Some of the traditional Mexican textiles, textures and patterns were adopted for this wedding. The designers used multi-colored paper banners – papel picado to decorate the ceremony and wedding venue in a striking way. The paper flowers are made by hand and they can be purchased by street vendors in Mexico.
These ones were bought from Mazatlan. They were combined with live flowers to create a more realistic and romantic arrangement. The multi colored ribbons and sashes used for the bride’s bouquet also looks very vibrant and fiesta-like. The accessories of the bride and the Mexican wrap she is wearing look sexy and also comfortable. The same hot color-scheme was adopted for the wedding invites, escorts cards and favors.
The designers used oranges, purples and green for creative cards that can fit the theme of the wedding. The table tables are beautifully decorated with ruffled flowers in tropical colors. The florists also used cactuses and placed them in terra-cotta pots for a more personalized and fun effect.
We adore the plates, the cups, the vases and the recipients used for the tables and flowers. You can see dahlias and roses in orange, pink and yellow. The wedding venue used for this shoot was the El Fadango restaurant in Old Town, San Diego. The old Hispanic flair was the principal inspiration for the reception. The restaurant is definitely a perfect place for festive dinner receptions. Private and romantic, this space can fit perfectly small intimate weddings.

The Spanish wedding style is always vibrant, a bit whimsy and cheerful. Therefore, combining the psychedelic and Mexican style is perhaps one of the most inedited and crazy ideas!

We have to mention that the theme used by designers for these arrangements is inspired by the rustic style and it features a vibrant orange color-scheme. We find this color-choice absolutely enchanting and the results surely meet our expectations.
The rustic style is one of the hottest and trendiest for contemporary weddings, and designers know it. In fact, they and their unique creations were the ones that inspired so many brides and grooms of today to adopt this style for their celebration. This wedding project is ideal for brides & grooms who are thinking of planning a more cheerful reception during the fall season.
Since you don’t want anything too boring that would make the fall reception look even gloomier, opting for a harvest theme is one of the best ideas to go! The orange color is ideal for these types of weddings because it is vivacious, healthy-looking and also eye-catchy. Its stridency can bring more energy and dynamism to the wedding and lift up a static atmosphere. However, this nuance is versatile enough to fit a glamorous reception as well. Its luxurious and vibrant appearance can help the bride and groom create a fancy elegant wedding that can fit a more dramatic formality.
So don’t be afraid to play with this vivid color because there many things you can do with it for your wedding! The first image shows us two types of bouquets created for the bride and the bridesmaids. The florists used an eclectic mix of seasonal blooms in orange, pink and dark green shades and accented it with wild berries. They look whimsically romantic and fit for a fresh-meadow feel. Moving on, you get the chance to see a few delicious and luscious rustic desserts made of apples and other seasonal spicy ingredients.
The dessert time calls for a more fashionable serving that fits the uniqueness of the theme. So you can use a cozier and flattering alternative for coffee by serving mugs of hot apple cider with cinnamon sticks. Also for an after-ceremony snack you can use bags of berry and almond trail mix and adorn them with thematic ribbons and foliage. Use a wooden try for the display and you’re done!
Another great alternative to the traditional wedding cake dessert is to use additional or extra confections that play in the theme. Use a decadent dessert of candied applies, lined with crushed nuts that complements the theme. Adorn the centerpiece with chrysanthemums and rose-hip berries for a post-meal surprise!
One of the trendiest styles promoted by designers today for wedding decorations is the rainbow style. The contemporary couples have lots of options when it comes to selecting a unique eye-catchy color-scheme or theme. And the choices vary from case to case, according to the formality, location, season and style of the wedding.
Each couple in part has its own vision and this is why we can’t possibly find a general perfect theme that can go for all types of situations. You should know that both pastel and vibrant color palettes are in for this and the next year. The designers of the moment love to play with different color swatches and combine soft and bold nuances in obtaining exotic or eclectic effects.
One of the themes obtained for a pure contemporary wedding ceremony and reception is the rainbow theme. This style is ideal for those who want a 100% modern wedding. The mixes that can be made between the colors available or recommended today by specialists in field are numberless and fabulous! However, those who decide to go for this wedding project should study a color chart or follow the advice of a specialist.
It is very risky to plan the color-scheme for a rainbow themed wedding without a specialized help. The effect can be strident, ostentatious or simply inappropriate for a wedding. So, to make sure the color-scheme you create can fit the formality and elegance of a wedding reception, use a few guidelines. You can try the types and ideas we have here to show.
