It’s unofficially fall and wedding season is far from over. While our autumn brides are busy putting together the last minute details, 2022 Fall brides-to-be anxiously await behind their Instagram and Pinterest accounts…for inspiration. But if you don’t want to wait for your favorite influencers’ wedding photos to hit your feed, here’s our favorite fall wedding color palettes with a little help to complete the look. Grab a pumpkin spice latte and open your wedding planner…you’re going to want to write this down!
Fall Wedding Color Palette: Spanish Sunset
Get the details: Whatever the venue, you can’t go wrong with a fall wedding color palette that incorporates a metallic gold. We love a little shimmer! Willow Designs beautifully inspired this palette with their bohemian chic table decor (pictured below). This look is all about a statement table cloth, a brown sea glass chalice, Gold place settings, and light rose florals for contrast.
If you’re planning a backyard reception or if your venue is limited on decor, renting what you need is never out of the question. The Silk Stem Collective offers similar gold chargers at 1.75 a plate. They also offer candle votives, card holders, and high-quality faux flowers if you want the look, without the hassle.
Complete the look: opting for a deep color palette doesn’t limit your options when it comes to the color of your bridesmaid dresses. You could pull from the lighter floral tones and have your girls in blush. Or walk on the wild side with a burnt orange, deep brown, or even a sequin gold. Playing with textures has been a trend on the horizon for quite some time so don’t be afraid to pick velvet or satin. Especially for an end of fall wedding when it’s a bit breezy.
As for your wedding gown…ivory, blush, and champagne are all great options. But an off-white, all over lace wedding dress would be the star of your fall bash. Grace + Ivory’s Madison gown is perfect for the bride who wants a modern but vintage look. The creamy undertones of the Spanish-inspired lace will perfectly blend with this fall wedding color palette.
Fall Wedding Color Palette: Romantic Blues
Get the details: If lighter, classic colors are more your style we recommend this fall wedding color palette inspired by the Big Fake Wedding Chicago. Blue truly works for any season, but would be especially perfect for a wedding just on the cusp on summer and fall. Mix in a moody gray, a matte black, and a blush accent…and you’ve got the romantic blue palette of your wedding dreams.
Picture this: your guests toasting with those picturesque blue glasses, the beautiful blush roses, those adorable macaroons…need we say more?
Complete the look: Although we’d love to see an ivory gown with this palette (and maybe so would your mother-in-law), we get that white may not be your thing. If you’re a statement bride and everything you’ve tried on has felt a little safe…a light blush gown would seamlessly pair with this romantic palette. Your homework: Book our Stella gown (below) for Try-At-Home and prepare to be a blushin’ badass bride.
Your bridesmaids? Well they can be your something blue in these chiffon floor-length gowns from Birdy Gray. They have a ton of options in shade dusty blue and are perfect if you don’t want your bride squad to spend a fortune. You can mix and match styles in the same fabric to create a cohesive look that ensures everyone feels confident. As for the groomsmen…opt for a staple gray suit they can wear again and again. We love the SuitShop for quality, trendy suits that don’t break the budget.
Fall Wedding Color Palette: All Boo’d Up
Get the details: If you want the ultimate fall wedding color palette, and arguably the spookiest, we’re still dreaming of this setup from Cascadia Events. Categorized by a wine colored red, black & white, with pops of deep greenery…this palette is not for the faint of heart. And the skeleton cake pops by @cakepopsbyrachel are a must!
This isn’t your childhood Halloween party so let’s leave the kids at home. Your guests will thank you for the night away!
Complete the look: with a theme so bold you may be tempted to go bolder with your wedding dress. At Grace + Ivory we love a black wedding dress moment but with this palette, we’d love to see an understated gown become the center of your spooky ceremony. Our Melanie dress (below) pairs perfectly with a dramatic red bouquet. Simple but sexy, with a slit and low low back…you’ll still feel like a bride at your wedding that is anything but traditional.
For your bride squad, black satin slip dresses are very on brand for the event. They’re easy to find at a multitude of prices and are a piece your bridesmaids could wear again. We’d opt for a midi length to pair with a statement shoe and earring.
Fall Wedding Color Palette: Emerald & Plum
Get the details: If you’re looking for a fall color palette your guests have never seen at a wedding, we have your inspiration! Traditionally the colors of a Mardi Gras celebration…emerald, plum, and gold will make your venue pop. The matte emerald plates are trendy and classy paired with a textured plum glass and gold accents. And we love the pops of red and blue in the florals to mix things up. Not pictured: A ultra-talented wedding planner. (You’re definitely going to need one of those to pull this off!)
If you love the look but want to tame it down, emerald is pretty all on its own. Many wedding blogs are calling it the color to watch this upcoming fall wedding season.
Complete the look: Your bridesmaids will look like royalty in an emerald ensemble. Since this palette is all about the fun, a mix-match in texture and style of your bridesmaid dresses (like below) is perfect for the occasion.
As for the bride, a white gown has never looked so good. An all-over crepe, like our Melody dress, would add effortless elegance to your wedding aisle. And just the right amount of sparkle!
