Orange, Red, Purple

I wanted to do a board with really rich colors today, and I wanted bold colors that were close to each other on the color wheel. That made it easy for me to pick orange, red and purple as the palette for this inspiration board!

What a fun color combination! Seriously combines fun and elegance! How am I ever going to decide?

I agree--the red and purple are elegant, and the orange is fun! I don't know how anyone picks. Maybe by using some complex equation accouting for the colors of the ceremony and reception sites, the bride and groom's favorite colors, the time of year and any other criteria that seem appropriate?
