5 Unique Fall Wedding Color Palette Ideas

We are preparing for our fall weddings here at Your Inspired Event! From advising new clients planning their engagement photography to finalizing timeline details for upcoming weddings, there is so much excitement around this time of year, especially as a wedding planner. One of our favorite parts about the season is the colors! We love gathering inspiration from nature for wedding palettes from the changing leaves. Not to mention, seasonal items like warm cider, Halloween decor, and comforting sweaters are also great sources for color ideas.

Choosing Your Fall Wedding Colors

Before you choose your fall wedding colors, there are some tips to keep in mind. Think about your location and theme. Are you planning an elopement in the woods or a luxurious black-tie event? Your surroundings can affect the colors you choose! Browse through your venue’s Instagram for ideas. Also, create a board just for color palettes to find out what your wedding style is on Pinterest (you might be surprised)! Once you have our colors down, the design will fall into place.

Forest Inspired 

If you can’t get enough of the fall leaves, this forest-inspired color palette is for you! We gathered the colors of the forest and mountains for this dreamy palette. Pops of oranges, rich red, and ochre compliment the classic deep green tone effortlessly. We can already see an all floral wedding arch with these colors! These colors are natural without remaining in the box of neutral tones.

Pink & Purple

Looking for a little romance? You have probably seen darker purple colors at fall weddings before, but why not make an entire color palette incorporating it? Add in lighter pinks and mauves for more dimension. These colors would make the prettiest bridesmaids’ dresses! We also think this is so versatile no matter where you are hosting your wedding.

Shades of Orange

Earthy orange tones have been trending and we are all for it! Nothing screams fall like a full color palette with shades of orange. Choose tones from pastel peach to rust for a unique palette. This combination is so warm and cozy for ‘sweater weather’!

Black & Gold

Planning an edgy, alternative wedding? This black and gold palette is chic while still being super cool for our daring couples. This could go with a spooky wedding theme for a subtle nod to the fall holiday. With the addition of neutral colors, the bold gold metallic color and black tone are balanced out. 

Jewel Tones

Want a wedding that feels extra luxurious? Jewel tones are the way to go! Add in that pop of color you are craving with colors like emerald and sapphire. These colors go so well together that you can easily mix and match as you please throughout your design. From ceremony florals to reception glassware, you and your guests will love this fall color palette.
