Orange and Grey Wedding Inspiration

So here is another inspiration board for my best friend Ashley (here I wrote about why she loves orange).  She did not specifically express an interest in grey but she likes the idea of fall colors and I think grey and orange go well together and are reminiscent of fall.  Grey is also very neutral so it can be paired with most colors.  Ultimately, I believe Ashley wants her color palatte to include more than just two colors and grey might not even be one of them but I hope she enjoys looking at these pictures at least!

Orange Wedding Inspiration

So my best friend Ashley is getting married.  And as the best friend and soon-to-be maid of honor I am excited about the opportunities to help in anyway that I can.  I want Ash to have a perfect day because she deserves it!  Although her wedding is more than a year away, she has already started getting ideas and planning...yeah!  At the moment, the best way that I can help her is to show her beautiful things that inspire her and give her ideas for her big day.  And this is right up my alley because I am constantly blog searching and looking for awesome images anyway.  Basically this is the perfect job for me.  So thanks Ash for getting engaged at a perfect time for me, oh yeah, and for you!

 

So Ashley really likes the color orange and she hinted to me that she might want orange to be in her color scheme for her wedding.  But she was a little discouraged because some of her acquaintances were pretty negative on the idea...they flat out ragged on orange and said it was ugly.  Shame!  Orange can absolutely be fantastic and beautiful and so I'm set on defending it because to me, it seems like the perfect color choice for Ash to make...especially since she is having a fall wedding.  So over the next couple of days I am going to be providing Ashley with beautiful orange inspiration...because that's what best friends do.  This first board revolves around oranges, as in the fruit.  The town that Ashley and I grew up in used to be a huge orange producer so these ideas pay a slight tribute to our lovely town (which I know Ashley will totally appreciate).  So without further ado...ORANGES!!

I hope you enjoyed this Ashley!  There will be more to come over the next few days.
