When you picture a fall wedding, do you immediately imagine fall leaves and orange pumpkins?  There are so many other beautiful color combinations.  As the weather turns cooler, instead of the orange and red, consider these color palettes. 

Jewel  Tones

Expand the color palette with rich colors like plum, eggplant or navy. Instead of the usual orange pumpkins consider using plums, pomegranates, grapes, or apples.  This color scheme can be paired with darker blacks and grays for a moody fall feel.

White and Neutrals

While blush has been the popular wedding colors for the last year, fall weddings lend themselves well to neutrals when paired with metallics.  Silver, gold, or copper pair well with white and neutrals for a romantic, elegant look.

Muted Colors

Instead of the brighter nature inspired shades of fall, choose a more muted or muddy tone and subtle shades. Slate, moss, gray, taupe, cream and a pink-brown shade create a modern, unexpected feel.
