Tangerine, Green and Bronze.

Tangerine, Green and Bronze.

Monday and the dread of working week starts all over again! Unlike most, I see my Mondays as the most inspirational day of the week, a goal starting day for me. More like being given another chance to make it,  well …better!! So Mondays are often looked forward to. With the break of the sun this Monday I had one colour in mind as I smiled to see the vibrant light. TANGERINE! Tangerine orange is not only the official colour of the year by Pantone but its vibrant, its alive, its hopeful, playful,exciting and with the touch of green, it uplifts the spirit. So here is a little something for your week.. to keep you focused, set to reach your goals as you plan for the D- day ahead with smiles.
Tangerine and Apple Green is the main colour for this inspiration, then using white and bronze as accent colours to balance the vibrancy of the orange. White also gives it a cool base. Happy week y’all! ..xx

    • Hello Grace,
      Fuchsia Pink and Turq Blue is a lively and exciting colour! Throw in white to this and it would be ace!
      Train can go on Turq Blue or Fuchsia, I would prefer that the train go for turq blue cause its quite predictable to use pink. It would be nice if the girls are holding their bouquet in pink and white. Groom wearing silver gray tie and waistcoat to match. His suit on black. His manflower in Fuchsia pink. Your shoe in pink.
      CBM: In pink flower patterned dress, shoe in pink.
      Then make the decor in white and pink. Blue flower vases on the table would make a striking difference to the pink flowers on the table..

      Hope this helps,

    • Hi Temitope,
      You have no clue for your colours?? Well they are loads you can think of..
      Check out cherry red, cotton candy pink, Green and slate gray

      Or the purples like pansy purple, violet blue and bit of yellow.

      We need to decide on the colour before I can advise on further.. Have you checked the comments to get any ideas?

      Let me know..

  4. Anita,thanks for Ʊ® response,I think I like this orange and green color but how do I combine it,can I also use it for both trad and white wedding or do I need to add other colour to it,cos its 2days and ‎​A̶̲̥̅♏ also worried abt wat d 2 families will wear if ‎​A̶̲̥̅♏ using same color or wat can I combine with royal blue.pls assist

    • Hi Tope,

      Orange and Green is lovely. It comes out better with apple green but what you could do is play around with different shades of green and orange.
      So in your trad, you could have orange and apple green with gold and whites. Your flower arrangement could have bits of salmon or coral added to the whites.
      Your white wedding should definitely have green in the shade of lemon and pear green,then add peony ( , mustard or amber yellow and Tomato. check the shades here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shades_of_orange. Use a white background for this too.
      For the families, peachy orange + army green and then light pinks like carnation with ink blue and melon for the other family.

      Hope this helps…

      Let me know.

      Kind Regards,
      Anita

  5. Anita, i tnk tope should combine gold with that green and orange but am not certain of the shade of green, probably army green will be perfect.but i need ur professional opinion on this as its my colour too.thanks

  6.

Pls do u hav any suggestion on any other colour than is very nice but unsual.I rely don’t want to do purple.Thanks a lot.

    • Hello Ruky,

      Sorry for the late response. My internet has been down and the engineers are working on it.
      I like turq blue and its great with a colour like peony ( You can also throw in white as the background colour.
      Your girls could have some flowery dress in turq blue and pinks then use peonies or rose colour for the waistband. You can have a turq blue shoe .
      The groomsmen can go black with tie in stripy blue.. Blue and pinks stripy tie is better. Your groom can use slate gray which is like dark gray, white shirt and tie in silver, waistcoat in silver then his manflower in turq blue to match your shoes.

      Your decor can be in white.. everything white but the flowers in peony colour and some light pinks.. your crockeries in white but your table napkin in turq blue…

      For your trad, am assuming this is a different day? I like the idea of using cinnamon colour mixed with ink blue or navy blue and melon colour
      so Cinnamon colour ( ink blue ) and melon )
      These colours combined together can make a beautiful trad wedding.

      Hope this helps,

      Let me know.

      All the best,

  7. Hi, need ur hlp on my wedding colours. Am avn my nikkah, engagement/reception on d same day. I want wine and gold for d reception but dnt knw wat colours to wear for d nikkah. I want colours dat can merged together. Thinking of white with torquiose blue and a navy/royal blue aso oke. Also, I want colours for both families to differ frm ours. Want to stand out. Could u pls help me out cuz am confused. Can u also email me ur addy so dat I can get in touch?

    • Hello Zanny,

      Your choice of blue is not bad at all but this won’t sit well with burgundy or wine..Emerald green like this colour harmonizes with burgundy even pinks and shades of purple like lilac, lavender.. but if you wish to use blue then try violet blues and lavendar together.
      One family can have orange and the other apple green or sea green.These colors go with burgundy..

      Hope this helps,

      All the best,

  8. Hi Anita, Am soooooo grateful,your ideals are so fresh & inspiring.U hav made me very confident.I luv d ideal of a flowery dress for d girls & gray for my man.I luv d suggestion for the trad & the links.Am following ur ideals hook,line & drowning.Thnks alot dearie.

  9. Pls, i want a do my wedding and i peak orange and lemon for my colour, my husband want to use ash colour suit. Now dnt no hw my husband can combine his own dress wit his groom’smen.

    • Hello Ayo,

      I need to understand, lemon as in lemon ( yellow) or lemon green? Whichever way, his silver gray suit can be used with a silver or white waistcoat and tie then his manflower in orange. His groomsmen can wear black suits, two piece and orange ties. They could also try navy blue suit which really complements the orange color.

      Hope that helps,

      Best,
      Anita

  10. I need ur help asap as my wedding Ȋ̝̊̅§ coming up I̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ april αи∂ my colour fuchsia pink, silver don’t K№ω how to combine them .pls kindly help me out wit Groom,GM,CBM, CONFETTI LADIES. thanks

    • Hi Doris,

      Fuchsia Pink is a very nice color and teaming it with silver is cool another accent color you add is white it brings the pop out of this color.
      GM: Black fitted suit would be nice on this with pocket square in fuchsia. If they want they go with the fuchsia bow tie. If they want something informal then let them wear black suit, white shirt no neckwear, slightly unbutton shirt with handkerchief in fucshia.

      Groom wears a light blue or light gray suit, white shirt and waistcoat, white neckwear and boutonniere in colors of white green and just a pop of fuchsia
      Chief BM: Why don’t you allow her wear a lovely cream gown? She can hold a lovely clutch bag in fuchsia or handfan in fuchsia.
      Confetti ladies should carry your colors wearing fuchsia. Are they wearing a long or short gown? I would prefer a short one. That color is rich so make it fun and lively. Alternatively, let the girls wear different shades of fuchsia- How fun would that be?

      Hope this helps,

      Best,

  11. Wow!!!!!! ‎​A̶̲̥̅♏ loving it already, but when Ʋ mean neck wear ƒό̲r̲̅ d groom wat do Ʋ mean? Αи∂ Ʋ did not mention tie ƒό̲r̲̅ d groom, αи∂ wat abt colour deco αи∂ my silver Ȋ̝̊̅§ № where to be found…..smile

    • Hi Doris,

      Your silver is found in your decor. Neckwear is tie or bow tie anyone he prefers to wear.

      Decor; I would say let your background be white, even swags in white then allow your flowers and napkins take over the pinks and the silver. Silver charger plates, favors wrapped in silver paper, cakes table can come in shimmery silver linen. Alternatively make your linen be in silver gray and then napkin and program in fuchsia.

      Hope this helps, give me a call ( 08037770150) or send me an email if you have more needs.

  13. Hi Anita,thanks a lot for your proffessional advice.Pls I need ur help.My colours are roya blue & pink for engagement,royal blue,pink and grey for reception, but am having trouble puting this colour together.What type of pink shade colours can I throw in to make it look Wow ?Pls I am also confused with the bridal train & groomsmen colour.Pls for the traditional wedding,do we need to wear a colour different from the colour of the day ? Pls do u hav any suggestion on any other colour than is very nice but unsual.Thanks a lot

    • Hello Funmi,

      I love the idea of Royal Blue and Pink. Try any shade of deep pink- that would be come out bold and impressive. you could also use sky blue as an accent or background color.
      # Reception: I like the idea of soft pink or baby pink for the background drapping however the designer wants to achieve with this color, allow the napkin to be in Royal blue and the charger plates in silver gray. Your favors can also come in grays wrapped with royal blue ribbon. The table linen and chairs in pink ( soft or baby pink).Then the cake stand can have the table linen in silver shiny gray so that the cake can be in pink color with designs in pink and white.

      # Bridal Party: Let your BM wear pinks in different shades or one color shade of pink. ( from soft pink to fuchsia or rose pink). I like the idea of the GM in grays. Blue- gray tux, white shirt and bow tie in pink, pocketsquare in pink. Alternatively, they can wear gray suit with waistcoat in gray, white shirt and then bow tie or tie in pink- pocket squares in pink.
      Groom should come in blue suit or tux, white shirt, white waistcoat, black bow tie and manflower in pink.

      # Traditional wedding; You do not have to have a different color theme, just use a different shade of blue and pink. Alternatively, you can use same shade of blue and orange with a dash of yellow. the orange and the yellow would come out beautifully well in the reception design when set against white then your attire in blue and gray.

      I hope this helps,

      Let me know.
