Fall is one of the most popular times to plan a wedding. If you have ever decided to say your vows in this romantic season, read on. We’ve got some fall wedding color palette choices for you – all for good reasons!
1. Metallic Glamour
A glamorous wedding theme has never been as easy as in fall. Thanks to multiple shades of pumpkin orange, old gold, bronze and sage green which create the opulent metallic look. Wooden tables and chairs can look pretty amazing if paired with golden tablecloths and sage-bronze bouquets. You can go a bit further and enrich your wedding wardrobe with black nicely paired with pumpkin orange and yellow. This way you’ll have great extravagant and vintage seasonal look with a romantic note.
2. Purple Paradise
One of the indispensable colors of any fall wedding color palette is purple in all its hues. The most beautiful and romantic ones are for sure lavender shades, which can vary from pastel hues to gentle and sophisticated faded nuances. You can nicely pair it with green, white and orange. For a fresh, romantic and a bit fancy look, purple and lavender are the colors to go for at almost any time.
3. Pastel Emerald
Those who love the vintage style will probably find wedding planning easier during the fall season because of endless pastel nuances readily available. The queen of pastel colors is emerald. It looks opulent, vintage and romantic. If you choose emerald to be the prevailing color on your wedding, feel free to combine it with ivory, powder pink, and white. In case you want a bolder decor, pair it with pumpkin orange, but make sure not to include multiple matte colors as you may get a cluttered look. Emerald can also look charming if combined with natural nuances of wood. You can add it as tablecloths or chair decorations over wooden dining furniture.
4. Fruit Nuances
Still indecisive about the color palette for your fall wedding? Think about a basket full of autumn fruits! The gorgeous nuances of orange, berry shades, wine red, dark yellow and pastel pink can bring out the real spirit of fall into your ceremony. The best thing about these fall wedding colors is that you can fairly pair them with each other as well as with white backdrops. For a royal rustic appearance, add some more old gold details.
5. Tons of Gold
Shiny yellow, brown, ivory and bright orange are other beautiful autumn colors. These gold nuances can be incorporated in almost every wedding decor, from dining sets, vases, flowers to candlesticks and ceiling elements. You simply can’t go wrong with gold shades if you seek for elegance and sparkle, but in case you want to make a statement, opt for crimson or sage elements which will make your wedding venue extravagant and unique.
6. Neutral Pastels
The shades of gray, navy, brown and ivory are neutral nuances of fall. They might look monotonous. However, when paired well with white, orange, red and purple, these colors can create a gorgeous vintage scenery.
7. Brown, Beige, and Copper
Although a neutral combo, this fall wedding color palette can’t get underestimated. It is so subtle. Each of these colors can pair well with any contrasting shade ranging from gold to lavender and emerald. The beautiful trinity of brown, beige and copper is an excellent choice for contemporary weddings, with rustic decor.
