Get Inspired: Fabulous Fall Wedding Color Ideas

by Anchal Bhatia

If yours is a fall wedding, it’s likely that you want to incorporate accents and colors appropriate to the season. With inspiration coming from nature, hues from seasonal flowers and foliage can help to create a perfect fall wedding color palette. Here are some color schemes that we love.

Orange and Purple: Perfect Combination for Fall Wedding Color

With fall leaves, pumpkins, and Halloween treats, orange is such a dominant color of the season. To mix things up for the regular orange look, blend the details with deep plum calla lilies, purple artichokes, and gorgeous eggplant bridesmaid dresses. The wedding cake can be adorned with colors from the bridal bouquet, and complementing table linens can be used to bring in the colors throughout the wedding hall for greater impact.

Brown and Gold: Warm and Inviting Fall Wedding Color

During fall we want to feel warm and cozy by the fire and wedding colors like brown and gold help to create that warming, inviting ambiance. You can either use it to convey a casual theme or create a very contemporary look depending on the use. According to your taste, chocolate brown hues can be incorporated throughout the wedding party or just be used as bold accents to bring the fall flair into the celebration. Make your wedding sparkle with glittering gold jewelry and heels, and bring a beautiful glow to your reception with candle centerpieces sitting on top of mirrors adorned with acorns.

Cranberry Red: Rich Fall Wedding Color

A deep, lush cranberry red is a rich, elegant color choice for your fall wedding. Red calla lilies, Asiatic lilies, mums, gerberas, and roses make great floral choices. Satin dresses, shoes, and sashes in various shades of cranberry play out the elegance of this deep color choice. If you feel that cranberry red is too loud for your taste, pair it up with dusty blue or grey for a softer look.

One of the most important things to consider when deciding on your fall wedding color palette is your favorite color. A color wheel like PANTONE WEDDING Guide from the The Dessy Group, may come in handy. Find your favorite color and then use the shade guide to choose other complimentary colors. Don’t forget to seek inspiration from the season. This should be one of your main considerations.
