One of the first things things in planning a wedding is picking your wedding colors.
My color ideas…sea foam green and white. We were getting married in June and I love the freshness of those colors. My husband, who was really helpful in the overall process but not into details had one request in the planning…burnt orange. Yes, burnt orange for a JUNE wedding. How could I say ‘No’ when it was one of his only requests? So, what did we do? Had a burnt orange wedding!
Burnt Orange was appropriate for us, not only because we are die-hard Texas Longhorn fans, but because that’s where we met! I was a Freshman and he was a Junior at The University of Texas when we met. As Texas Exes, we definitely represented.
The Wedding Party was of course in burnt orange attire.
The Groom’s Cake was definitely a longhorn!
We gave out burnt orange koozies with the drinks.
And…of course…we sang The Eyes of Texas and did a good ole Texas Fight!
Somewhere in between him asking for Burnt Orange to be one of our wedding colors and the wedding day…it turned into a full blown theme of “Hooked on Each Other”.
It was our very own, Texas Longhorn Wedding!
