Wedding Wednesdays: Part I - Orange Bridesmaids

So you've decided to incorporate your alma mater (Clemson) into your wedding colors? I may be biased, but I think purple and orange go great together and would make for beautiful wedding colors for a spring or summer wedding. But you can always use one of the colors and pair it with a nice compliment color.

While it may be easy to convince your lovely bridesmaids to adorn purple dresses, you might have a harder time getting them excited about orange bridesmaid dresses. No doubt this is what they are envisioning when you mention orange to them...

Yikes! However, orange can actually be a really flattering color if it's the right tone and the right style... Check out the inspirations below I found. How beautiful are the brides' crisp white wedding dresses paired with the vibrant oranges? And check out the first one (my fave!) where the orange adorned bridesmaids are carrying gorgeous purple bouquets?

There are so many really pretty bridesmaid styles that come in shades of are a few of my favorites I found online.

And lately I'm really into the print trend for bridesmaid dresses - Anthropologie is a great option for print bridesmaid dresses that are affordable considering what most typical bridesmaid dresses cost these days. I love this orange, multi-colored patterned dress - a little more casual, so perfect for a beach wedding!

What do you think of using orange for your bridesmaids? What color would you pair with orange for a wedding? Would you (or did you) use orange and purple as your wedding colors?
