Fall Color Palettes

Season and weather are the top factors in choosing a color scheme for your wedding. During this crisp fall time, I would like to share a few of my favorite combinations that accent this time of year.

Orange and Deep Reds
These colors, both being rust tones, naturally compliment each other. To soften the color combination, add touches of ivory, which can be seen in this floral arrangement, courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens.

Be bold with a rust orange for linens. We suggest cinnamon taffeta from Marquee Rents, with a deep red runner and sashes on the chairs.

Orange and Chocolate Brown

Orange paired with chocolate brown is a wonderful choice for daytime or evening affairs. Using this color combination allows you to be vibrant with your orange shade, as the chocolate brown will even the score.

An example is this table and chair setting, photo courtesy of Better Homes and Gardens.

Chiavari chairs are a stylish way to not only add dark brown tones, but also to compliment an outdoor wedding.

For a more elegant, understated event, choose a brown satin linen, and use orange sashes on gold chiavari chairs with orange centerpieces. 

Gold and Ivory

Not a fan of orange? 

Gold gives off the same warmth that orange does, yet in a more subdued way. Pairing it with an ivory tone will neutralize the gold, and go perfectly with the fall season once the leaves begin to turn. 

The sophisticated look this combo gives off, makes for a formal tablescape and is sure to wow your guests.

Green and Brown
These earthy tones compliment outdoor weddings well. Try using different shades of green with light browns, as seen in the floral arrangement below.

Also use fun brown accents, like pinecones for placeholders, or with chocolate treats, like seen below.  

I adore the idea of using brown linens with green floral arrangements!
