Choosing Seasonal Wedding Colors for Your Fall Wedding

Wedding season is in full swing now, and it’ll carry through the fall. We’ve seen a lot of great photos of our friends’ and families’ beautiful ceremonies and receptions. If you’re finishing up planning your wedding, or you’re looking for ideas for next fall—or hey, if you just like fall weddings in general, you’re in luck—today, we’re talking about seasonal wedding colors for fall weddings, trends, how to make things your own, and unique details.

Trends for Seasonal Colors

Some of the trendiest colors for autumn weddings are, of course, colors that you seen in nature—colors that invoke the thought of fresh flowers and color-changing leaves like hunter green, yellow, orange and neutrals, to balance out the brightness of natural settings. These can seem a little obvious or a little overdone though, so think about trying these unique color combinations:

  • Pale pink and hunter green: these colors are perfect for a fall afternoon outdoors, and because the dark, rich green offsets the blush of the pink, it’s not too girly—something that the guys can get on board with! It’s fresh looking without being too summery.
  • Coral, white and blue: these unique colors work well together. Think of the blue and white China patterns you’ve seen in the past, then add in coral table linens or napkins to balance things out. It’s a color combination many people don’t think of as working together, but it creates a great look.
  • Eggplant, almost-red magenta, and pumpkin: these rich fall-esque colors pair great with a dark sage green or taupe, as well, and there are plenty of ways to work them into your theme.

Personalized Style Tips

When you’re planning a fall wedding, there are a lot of ways to incorporate fall colors throughout your planning. For instance, if you are afraid of having a little too much color, you can use neutral table linens and place an accent-color table runner over that. You can also use different-colored plates or napkins to carry the theme throughout. Adding in fall-colored centerpieces or bouquets can look great as well.

Unique Details

To really weave your colors through your entire wedding, think about what your favors will be or how you’ll have your wedding party dressed. For instance, you could have the men wear colored pocket squares or ties that coordinate with your theme—and not every person in the wedding party necessarily has to wear the same color, either! For a unique fall wedding favor, consider doing something like jarred preserves—coordinate the color of the jams with the fall colors, and it’ll remind people of your wedding every time they use it.
