Yes.... Let the men wear black with orange vest. You can use yellow, orange/red, burgandy olive green, sage green..... As the accent color. Good luck! I am a wedding planner, if you need anymore help. Email me at wyck418@aol.com

I love burnt orange. You can mix it with sage/lime green flowers and it looks lovely together. Green Roses (Yes, they actually come in that shade)Lime green spider mums, lime green button pom pom are all great choices to mix with burnt orange roses, or burnt orange mini calla lilys.

Good Luck and have a great wedding.

Might want to ask your bridesmaids if they want to wear all burnt orange? maybe you can throw the color in the theme, without them wearing it? and browns are great with burnt orange and even red is good. But i think too many mixtures of colors could be overwhelming. But i applaud your sense of boldness! congrats! we are going to be wed in june and plan on night colors for ours. Beccah

Just giving you some information....my wedding is in October of 07 and I am doing my girls in burnt orange, and the guys in chocolate brown tuxs. Chocolate brown in a tux is extremely hard to find, but a wedding boutique I went to today just got their new cataloge in from Stephen Geoffrey and there is a chocolate brown tux #282. It`s so gorgeous. They are having vests to match the girls dresses. By the way my girls dresses are from Alfred Angelo...whose burnt orange color is perfect!

I was thinking about using burnt orange myself and saw some really pretty pictures of lilies that were orange. I`m going to use a dark purple to go with it. They usually have vests and ties that are an eggplant type shade. Good luck!

I was going to use burnt orange & dark brown as my colors. I got the idea from David`s Bridal last fall in one of their photo shoots on the web-site. The girls had on burnt orange dresses w/ either brown sashes across the waist tied into a bow. Or they were mixed & matched dresses (burnt orange top, dark brown skirt.) They had the guys displayed as wearing black tuxes w/ burnt orange vests or black tuxes w/ dark brown vests. I know dark brown & black sounds like it wouldn`t go together..but it looked VERY nice. Hope this helped & good luck!!!

One of the most striking colors with burnt orange is burgundy...or aubergine. It can be quite elegant. You should have several choices of flowers in August.

My wedding colors are burnt orange and ivory. I think the yellow are orange flowers will look great. I have picked yellow and orange tiger lillies that look great together.

I am going round for the bridesmaid and flowergirl dresses and i really liked a burnt orange dress for the bridesmaid and a white dress (to match my dress) with an orange sasch for the flowergirl. What colour i should choose for their shoes, jewellery and the flowers? I prefer not to choose any gold as i am going to be wearing silver jewellery. I thought of keeping the colours to white, burnt orange and silver.

I am getting married August 16, 2008 and I have picked orange and yellow as my two colors... I am having trouble finding the perfect bridesmaid dress though.. Does any one know a good place to look for orange or yellow summer bridesmaid dresses?

Alfred Angelo has a good selection of orange colors to choose from for bridesmaid dresses.

I am also using Burnt orange(presimmon) but I am having a hard time choosing my accent color. I was going with chocolate but every one said that was to dark. What do you think about orange and Fusia? Does it matter what color your banquest hall is? My wedding is in two months.
