Fall Wedding Colors

Fall is that time of the year when nature puts up one of its most spectacular displays. From the golden-yellow hues of the larch, birch and witch hazel to the reddish-purple of the maple, oak and dogwood, Fall colors are a sight to behold! Browns, reds and gold dominate the theme at a Fall wedding - rich bold colors that are indicative of the season’s natural hues. Check out how to incorporate Fall wedding colors – into your decoration, dress and overall theme!

Fall wedding colors

The range of color options for a Fall wedding theme are plenty, from burnt orange and buttery gold to a fiery red and dark brown. Decorations can be matched to the season to include deep lavender, purple and terracotta. Yellows, copper and ivory can be blended with the rich hues of autumn for a wonderful Fall wedding centerpiece. Try and add a hint of sapphire and navy blue. Provide accents with silver and periwinkle. The abundant foliage and bright flowers of the season provide the right inspiration for a Fall wedding.

Rose shades such as golden apricot, tangerine and red-orange can be used for wedding bouquets and floral decorations. Lustrous red gloriosa lilies and brilliant hydrangeas make for a striking statement in bouquets. You can also go in for chrysanthemum and baby’s breath.

Fall wedding decor

Fall weddings can be decorated in keeping with the seasonal colors. The right use of berries, foliage and accessories can add to the overall décor and theme. From the altar and aisle to the stairs outside the entrance, rich colors of autumn make for a wonderful decorating scheme. You can choose the stage décor, table centerpieces and free standing decorations to complement the autumn color palette. Choose flowers in yellow, russet red and orange. Foliage in moss green and brown would work well with the Fall wedding color theme. You can pick up faux autumn colored leaves and vinery to decorate. Large boxes of mums in crimson, yellow, purple and mauve can enliven the wedding décor. Deep burgundy and gold can also lend a rich opulence to your wedding decoration. Make use of grasses and branches or even berries on stalks.

Fall wedding gown

The bridal gown can be chosen in silk or light wool. While classic cuts and wedding gowns never go out of style, you can make slight modifications to suit the seasonal theme. The bridal gown can be chosen in autumn fall colors. Alternatively, the bride can opt for sashes in a rich gold to an ivory colored gown. Fall wedding colors that are popular with brides are pinks, fuchsia, aqua and green.
