Top 10 Wedding Colours for Autumn 2015 from Pantone
It feel likes only yesterday that I was sharing Pantone’s pick of colours for Spring 2015 and yet, they have already released their favourites for fall – and if you thought the Spring palette was pretty, just wait until you see the beautiful array of colours they chose for Autumn!
Here’s how Pantone, the global authority on colour, described the palette “This season displays an umbrella of accord that weaves earthy neutrals with a range of bold color statements and patterns to reflect a landscape of hope, fun, fantasy and all things natural. The colors are evocative of a love for nature and a timeless appreciation for warmth and security, which are conveyed through naturally inspired colors that remind us of things that are real and protective. This Fall, designers’ pay homage to progressive moments in American history – from the seductive ‘20s to the bohemian hippie and modernists of the ‘60s and ‘70s.”
Sounds like my idea of heaven! So how do they translate into Autumnal weddings? Well, here are a few ideas…..
A neutral green with a hint of grey, Desert Sage 16-0110 (the geeky numerical code for it) is subtle, soothing and utterly timeless!

Biscay Bay 18-4726 is a radiant teal that is both lush and elegant. Paired with rich earthy tones it will add a little brightness to a chic Autumn affair; or for a fun and flirty celebration, with a hint of retro cool, simply add it to some brighter shades…..

A beautiful blue-grey, Stormy Weather 18-4214 is moody, romantic and anything but drab. It is the perfect neutral for pairing with almost any colour, or is equally luxurious and elegant enough to look just as gorgeous on its own – especially in a coastal setting!…..
