"Orange is red brought nearer to humanity by yellow." --Kandinsky

Orange, a close relative of red, sparks more controversy than any other hue. There is usually strong positive or negative association to orange and true orange generally elicits a stronger "love it" or "hate it" response than other colors.
Fun and flamboyant orange radiates warmth and energy. Interestingly, some of the tones of orange such as terra cotta, peach or rust have very broad appeal.

The Effects of the Color Orange

How the color orange affects us mentally and physically

  • Encourages socialization

The more research I have done on this simple color the more I fun facts I find.  The fact that orange encourages socialization is reason alone to choose it for your wedding.  Your guests won't even realize that they are being subconsciously told to socialize.

A few of my fellow vendors have sent some great examples and uses for the color orange.  Be sure to also check out the rest of their work!

Love this custom wine bottle label!  Fabulous gift for your guests.


An example of using the actual fruit.  Love the texture and color it adds to the floral design!


Not a detail is missed even in a bouquet.
