Blue and orange weddings

The colors blue and orange are great for a wedding theme. I must say there are some color combinations that I have always loved for weddings specifically and I have written about many of them in this wedding colors hub series. Blue and orange however had not been a color combination that immediately came to mind. I first heard blue and orange mentioned as a wedding color theme before ever seeing pictures of it and I was even a bit skeptical about how well the colors blue and orange would work together.

I have to say now that I have seen photos of blue and orange weddings, I absolutely adore the blue and orange color combination for weddings. Blue and orange is an exhilarating and fun color combo and would be so nice for a beach wedding reception but the beach is just an example. Blue and orange would be nice in various venues.

If you are skeptical about the blue and orange wedding color combination too, then please look at these gorgeous photos and maybe you'll reconsider.

As you can see, several shades of blue can work well with the blue and orange wedding theme.

You can go with aqua/ turquoise and really be reminded of the color of the sea in the Caribbean or you can go with cobalt, royal blue or navy blue. These all work very well.

Orange gerbera daisies can be beautiful wedding flowers

Orange gerbera daisies would be a moderately priced and pretty wedding flower to use. It looks great with the cobalt blue color above

This vibrant and festive color scheme is sure to please your wedding guests.

Bridesmaid attire

The bridesmaid dresses in the photo below are among my favorites for this particular color scheme.

Eleven bridesmaids, wow, that's a lot but only adds to the festivity, celebration and extravagance.

Candles for blue & orange wedding color scheme

Natural candlelight is always one of my favorite and most recommended features at a wedding. It is inexpensive, romantic and truly beautiful. I love the orange candles in the photo collage below.

Planning a unique wedding with blue and orange wedding colors

We know this blue & orange wedding color combination really stands out. This wedding color theme is fairly unique and very memorable.

Wedding invitation price

The two color versions of the wedding invitation above cost $1.71 each.

Wholesale wedding suppliers

You might want to consider wholesale wedding suppliers for additional orange and blue themed wedding ideas that can be very economical. For example, various wedding favor boxes might be featured as well as paper lanterns and table runners. On various occasions, I have seen orange paper lanterns that are quite beautiful.

Where to buy orange paper lanterns

Orange paper lanterns are really gorgeous. They can add an amazing amount of elegance to the aesthetic of your wedding theme but at such a low price. Round orange paper lanterns that are twelve inches in diameter can cost under $2 each.

  • allows you to shop for paper lanterns by color. Of course, if you decide to buy paper lanterns for your blue and orange wedding, you might want to get blue lanterns but I personally like and recommend the orange ones the most. The way the light illuminates from orange paper lanterns is just beautiful and would be great perhaps for an outdoor wedding reception that extends beyond nightfall. The way that they would glow at night would be really nice. If you prefer, you can also get a combination of both blue and orange paper lanterns and arrange them in an alternating pattern.
  • also sells round paper lanterns in a variety of colors.
  •, and are among a few of the other vendors that provide vibrant and festive Chinese/Japanese round paper lanterns in orange or other colors.
