  • Wedding: September 2008

My wedding is September 27th of this year, so similar time frame. I chose a similar color, but wanted less purple in my red-ish color. So I went to Alfred Angelo’s claret color. Anyway, the other colors I’m using are a charcoal grey and bright white. These colors may not go with the whole pumpkin theme though. However, I just got my invitations and the colors look AMAZING together!! To stick with a more autumnal theme, maybe go with a cream color, deep purple is also very fall-y. But the wine may be too close to that. There are so many options, it can definitely get overwhelming!

I’m not a fall bride, but we are doing wine and gold.  Don’t really know if that helps, but corn stalks are kind of goldish.  Maybe wine and wheat color would look good?

Hmm… cream or champagne  and maybe a deep dark turquoise or olive green.  That would be lovely

 or

i once saw a great wedding that had six bridesmaids–they had the same dress but in three fall hues–a warm golden, a burnt orange and a deeper red (i guess more marooney than wine).  it made for some vivid pictures and was harvest friendly

I could see your wine color going well with a rich olive green (think a clump of dark red/purple grapes with green stems and leaves) and maybe a burnt orange as an accent. My biggest recommendation would be to go to lowes (or home depot) and look at there paint chips. Find one that is the most similar to the wine and then see what it looks best with.

Good luck and my husand and I just moved from the Norfolk area about 4 months ago! Didn’t think I’d miss it, but seeing the regular ol’ boring comercial planes fly over is just not as interesting at seeing the fighter jets. Maybe I just grew up with too many brothers who spent too much time watching the discovery channel. Good luck!

how about with brown and ivory?  That would go well with bringing in the pumpkins and gourds. 

Mine is Sept. 6 and we’re going with brown and a sagey green and using fall color accents here and there.

I am also an October bride–autumn really has the most beautiful colors in my opinion!  I think it would look nice if you had a soft orangy color to play against the deep wine color–maybe something similar to David’s Bridal Terracotta color?  It’s easy to get flowers in that color (I’m thinking roses and mango callas right off the bat) and I think it would coordinate well with the colors of straw and corn and pumpkins and whatnot because it’s sort of in the middle of those colors.  Good luck and happy planning!

I’m an October bride! Our colors are dark purple (aubergine dresses) and rust orange. No one’s wearing orange, we’re just using it for the flowers! Good luck

Other jewel tones look great or golden yellows and oranges.  A wonderful kelly or sagey green could look great too. Or try these Dark Green, Navy Blue, Silver, Gold, Creams, Burnt Orange, Taupe, Brown and Plum.

Take a look at this inspiration board form Snippet & Ink.

I’m getting married in October and our colors are garnet (close to your wine color), tangerine and champagne.  I really wanted things to feel really warm and comfy cozy but I didn’t want people to feel like Halloween threw up on them.

The wine color is lovely! I would accent it with champagne, ivory and copper.  I originally started out with the wine color, as well as champagne, but then switched my palette to chocolate brown, burnt orange, and champagne.  such a great time of year, you can’t go wrong!
