Orange and Steel Wedding Color Palette

Clearly I’m not the first person to suggest orange for an October wedding. So although I don’t win points for originality, maybe I can win points for the cake. The cake that, er, I didn’t make but found on the Internet? Alright, originality fail. But I think you can appreciate what I’m trying to do with this inspiration board—freshening up an expected October color palette.

Yes, it all started with the cake. Isaac Mizrahi’s fall 2011 show sent a “waiter” down the runway, carrying this elaborately decorated, three-tiered cake. Some asked why; I just drooled (over the cake, people! Minds out of the gutter, stat).

So I used the cake as my starting point, and the small glints of silver at the center of each flower established the accent color. The result is super stylish.

    I love this! Alas, when my sister eloped, we lost her orange and navy October wedding. Thanks for letting me see a little bit of what might have been. Your blog is fantastic, Mo!

    Thanks, Gwen! Wow, orange and navy would have been a great combo. But I’m sure they’re happy they eloped — it must have cut their stress in (at least) half.
