10 Stunning Autumn Wedding Colour Palettes
After welcoming Autumn earlier this month with that romantic modern vintage inspiration board in serenity blue and neutrals, I thought it was time to take a look at some other colour combinations for the Fall season. There are so many reasons to love Autumn weddings, the warm light, pumpkins and smores around an open fire being some. But colour is surely one of the best? For when every leaf is a flower, you are guaranteed a beautiful wedding – whatever your style, theme or budget. So, for those of you planning an Autumn wedding, here’s 10 of the most stunning colour palettes for a celebration under the falling leaves. And after creating these I can see only one problem with getting married in the Fall, and that is only being able to choose one of them!…..
Copper & Emerald
I’m going to start with something a little unusual! Because much as I love them, Fall doesn’t have to be all about the beautiful shades of the turning leaves. It can be simpler and cooler – and still as striking! As this mix of copper, emerald and icy blue proves nicely…..

Dusky Shades of Purple
Deep dusky purples also make a beautiful alternative to the more traditional fall colours! Paired with blush and navy they make for a feminine and romantic wedding, and are just perfect for a floral filled affair.

Autumn Berries & Leaves
This colour palette is the perfect mix of fall hues, neutrals and romance. Somehow managing to be both stylishly masculine and beautifully feminine it would be as popular with the bridesmaids as it will the grooms in terms of colours for their attire…… Oh and ripe figs and fresh berries make the perfect topper to any cake – take a look here to see what I mean!

Nothing says Autumn quite like reds and burnished golds of fall leaves and this colour combination captures those shades perfectly, don’t you think? And I just LOVE how the contrasting pops of coral and turquoise teal gives an otherwise traditional palette a contemporary twist! Vibrant, fun and super pretty it is perfect for a romantic affair at any venue…..

Chartreuse & Copper
Wedding colour palettes have a tendency to be quite feminine, but this combination is refreshingly masculine with just the peachy orange adding a hint of pretty. And inspired by the turning leaves it would be oh so perfect for a garden wedding….. just be sure to provide blankets for your guests for when the temperature drops!

Red & Gold
Of course golden shades are the classic Fall choice for a reason! Not only do they tie in nicely with the turning leaves, but they also have a warmth, richness and opulence that adds a hint of luxury to any event. And make the most of the season with some unexpected treasures like berries in your floral arrangements to give that gorgeous foraged feel…..

Soft Fall Neutrals
If you’re looking for something more minimal however, then this soft palette of neutrals might take your fancy. With the hint of the palest pink and blue it is a modern take on Pantone’s colours of the year (Serenity & Rose Quartz) and would be perfect for the current greenery trend that is sweeping the wedding world off its feet…..

Blackberries & Roses
This palette just couldn’t be any lovelier. The ombre shades of red, orange and yellow are the quintessential colour palette for an Autumn wedding, but I wanted to show it can be so much more than just trees and leaves by giving it a more elegant, romantic and beachy (yep, beachy!) feel……

Whilst pink may not be the first colour you think of for a Fall wedding, I wanted to show that this shade, especially when mixed with gold and a deep autumnal red can be a romantic addition to a palette for an Autumn bride. It would be sure to look lovely in any venue, but I can’t help imagining a marquee wedding with king tables and string lights…..*swoon*

And last but not least this sophisticated colour palette has an air of gothic romance that would add opulence and drama to any Fall wedding. This look is all about the contrast – those natural Autumn hues with an icy grey and dusky black, velvet (its a big trend for this Autumn Winter!) with tulle, ornate design details in a simple setting…..
