This elegant organza and tulle wedding dress with empire bodice and stapless neckline by Lazaro is accented by an a-line bridesmaid dress in a shade of burnt orange. There ceremony takes place outside on a beautiful fall afternoon and each aisle is decorated with a green pomander that is tied with orange ribbon. Orange ranunculi, orange calla liliess, green hydrangea, and green hellebore are found everywhere from the bridesmaids' bouquets to the reception centerpieces to the groomsmen's boutonnieres. The ceremony is decorated in bold green and orange linens with white accents. The guests sip on orange martinits while they enjoy a beaufitul fall inspired chocolate cupcake decorated with green and orange fall leaves. At the end of the night, the guests go home with a beautiful favor in a white box tied with orange ribbon so that they can remember this beautiful and bold fall colour palette.

It's the Little Touches ...

Programs are great for your ceremony and allow your guests to follow along with anything special that you've added to it. Here's a very simple and cute way to both give them out and hint at the upcoming colour display.

Looking for some rustic touches to add to your fall wedding? Adding mini pumpkins or fruit creates a "harvest" atmosphere because several types of apples and pears are in season during September and October. They even fit the green and orange colour palette! These little pears are used as cute favors, but they could easily become place cards or stands for table numbers.

Here is a little touch that is sure to please! Cuff links with green and orange stones make a great impression and are an easy groomsmen gift.

Don't wait! There's only a few days left to cast your vote for next week's orange inspired colour palette!
