If you thumb through the pages of any major fashion magazine right now you will notice color everywhere. I'm especially delighted to see such an obsession with tangerine and citrus tones.
On a recent trip to Southern California I found color inspiration for this fashionable palette everywhere! Poppies were blooming along sidewalks and many shades of pink bougainvillea clung to tree trunks. Are you afraid of bold color? I say go for it! If you can't make the leap of using these hues on your wedding day, think about incorporating them into your engagement party or rehearsal dinner!

Poppies are especially beautiful in the late winter/early spring and I find myself trying to include poppies as much as possible while they in season. Before you know it they will vanish until next season, so enjoy every minute of this bold, whimsical bloom. Above is a fabulous orange one I spotted blooming in Laguna Beach a few weeks ago.
I love pairing bold orange flowers with hot pink and coral ones. It's a delicious palette that is guaranteed to wow anyone at your wedding. So beautiful!
