When it comes to planning for your wedding, you can never start too early. And choosing your wedding colors is one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make. Once you have a scheme picked out, elements such as floral design, bridesmaids’ dresses, and cake decoration just fall into place. While we believe a bride doesn’t have to follow any set of rules when choosing the style and aesthetic for one of the most important days of her life, the season usually has some influence on wedding colors. And fall is a season that comes to life with lush jewel tones and warm earthy hues. For the bride planning her nuptials for Fall 2017, here are 5 inspiring color combinations perfect for an autumnal wedding.
Lilac, Berry, and Blush: A soft blend of purple and pink adds a hint of feminine enchantment to an autumnal wedding. Floral arrangements of roses, ranunculus, and lush greenery radiate organic splendor. Enhance nature-inspired décor with glittery details. A berry hued cake becomes a decadent dessert with gold ribbon and leaf decoration. Embroidered beading on a whisper-of-pink bridesmaid dress and sparkling accessories evokes garden glamour.
Canary, Tangerine, Magenta, and Wine: A medley of vivid hues like canary, tangerine, magenta, and wine create a wedding color scheme that is vivid and joyful. With plenty of flowers available in this palette, Gerber daisies make for a cheerful impression. For fashion, bridesmaid dresses of burgundy or a close shade of deep purple are universally flattering. Opt for a suit in navy blue, which works as a nice contrast to the bolder tones. And we love the idea of having desserts that are as spirited and playful as the colors.
Ivory, frost, and silver: Wedding white is always in style no matter what the season. A palette of ivory, frost, and silver defines romantic elegance. Set the tablescape in white blooms, vintage silver servingware, crystal blue wine glasses, and taper candles to create an ambiance of timeless beauty. From the bridesmaid dresses to the wedding cake, use silver as a unifying decorative detail throughout your fashion and décor.
Peach, Pink, and Orange: Are you having difficulty choosing between bright colors or warmer hues because your wedding falls during a transitional month like September? Why not embrace the turn-of-season colors with a unique mix of peach, pink, and orange? To soften the punchy hues, embellish wedding essentials like invitations, bouquets, and the cake with gold accents. When it comes to attire and jewelry, delicate gold pieces look lovely with bridesmaid dresses in light coral.
Gold and Cranberry: For a warm, luxurious color scheme, gold and cranberry are a perfect match. Ideal floral arrangements include Mokara orchids, marigolds, roses, and chrysanthemums with accents of antique green hydrangea. Make your official announcement with a classic invitation marked with gilded script. For the reception, ornaments such as dark tone vases, candles, and luxe linens are not only striking, but also radiate a lavish atmosphere.
Fall is a wonderful time to plan a wedding for many reasons. It symbolizes a time of change, balance, and letting go. Fall is not only rich in color but also feeling and versatility. And for the autumn bride, the season offers a myriad of inspirations when it comes to choosing her wedding color scheme.
