How many colors is to many??????

I have three colors and I'm not sure that that can blend together, the way my fiancee and I want them to . My colors are yellow, orange, and white. I want this day to be the best day of our lives, can someone please help!

    hmmm, though those are not the colors I would choose to put together, (makes me think of candy corn lol) I would probably use white and yellow, with orange as an accent color.

    Maybe - as an example - a bouquet of white and yellow roses with an orange ribbon around the base.

    Or.... white tablecloths with a yellow table runner with orange plastic rhinestones sprinkled on the runner.

    Just thinkin... :)

    I think 3 colors are fine. Any more than that would probably be too much. Not only that but one of your colors is white...which isn't as crazy as red or neon green. I'm sure most people won't really even notice that white is one of your colors.

    I agree, white is a good base color and will help even out the orange and yellow.  If you are worried about it being too much, maybe you can choose lighter shades of those colors to make it a little more subtle.  Either way, I think you'll be fine!  :)

    I think those colors would work well together. 

    I had quite a bit of colors going on in my wedding.  The ceremony was orange, white, brown.  The reception was turquoise, cream, white, brown, a salmon pinkish color., tan.  Yea...I know, a lot but most of those were accent colors that went well with the way I did it.  I have pics of how I meshed it together in my bio links below (planning & wedding).   The 3 main colors were brown, turqouise white (and off white).  I used the other colors in the favors, table cards, etc. 

    **edit**  I decided to just post the pics below.  I had so many colors!

    the colors will work great! I'm using a lot of colors too blue, green, white, purple and gold I think I'll use purple and gold as accent colors. I'm using inspiration from peacock feathers :) anyways you can always look up those color themes and get wonderful ideas .

    You really only have 2 colors, white doesn't count. 

    We have blue and yellow, but a large range of shades. It'll probably end up being about 20 different shades altogether, but I still consider it just 2 colors.

    Your wedding will look lovely, you could use lemons and oranges as decoration
