We originally planned a May wedding and the colors were Navy, Ivory and pale pink. Well we moved the wedding to October, and darn it, i still want those colors!! I’ve tried to find more “fallish”replacements for the pink, but I keep coming back to that. Gold and orange just aren’t going to do it for me. Can I pull this off? Does it even matter? Our wedding is outside at a winery.

I say do the colours you love! IMO unless your colours are guaranteed to remind people of a specific holiday (like Christmas or Halloween) people won’t see them as out of place.
ETA: Not that you can’t have Christmas in July or whenever you want of course!

Those are totally fine for fall–better than for May, I think.

Nope – do what you want. My wedding is in June and I picked dark purple which isn’t a traditional June color. I am using my flowers to brighten it up (bright orange and fushia). Use what ever colors you like and make you happy 🙂

Our colors are navy and leaf green. Because those are our favorite colors. I’m pretty sure we had the colors before we even picked a date. Do what makes you happy!

Definitely not! My wedding is end of August so it’s the end of summer and beginning of fall. My colors are colors that would work for fall, summer, or winter. And really it doesn’t bother me. I don’t think it matters. Do the colors you love!!!

I got married in the fall, and I didn’torange gold, orange, brown, or red. Go with what you like! And your colors sound lovely for a fall wedding!

@AirForceWife78: I went with peach instead of pink (and thats in my dress and the rose petals!) and a truffle brown (bridesmaid dresses, table linens, and invites). Also an accent color Im using is burgundy maybe like if the bridesmaids have a sash on their dress, that could be the color. My wedding is fall themed so there will be a few maple leaves and other things going on I just didnt want to wear that and I really dont favor orange too much, maybe a deep orange would be okay.

Red and turquoise for a July wedding over here. Just do it, you’re not Jackie O.

I’m in the same exact boat! I fell in love with J. Crew’s sweet papaya Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses but we arheaving an October wedding. I didn’t want traditional fall colors anyway so I think I am gonna go with the pinkish coral color but tone it down with blush, navy blue, and some off white and maybe gold? I’m not sure what to do about flowers – I really wanted bright flowers but white would look nice. Maybe do white for the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets? I’m still looking for good decor ideas to keep the cozy fall feeling…

Our colors were picked WAY before our date because Fiance is colorblind, and he can see black, red, and white. I don’t think it matters at all what colors you have, no matter the season.

I would 100% without a doubt still use those colors for a fall wedding. I think it’s a little weird when people use super fall colors at other times in the year but I usually just notice that the wedding is beautiful and move on. I didn’t think twice about the season when picking my colors and one of my bridesmaids is getting married in June and her bridesmaids are wearing burnt orange. She’s getting married in a hotel so I don’t thnk anyone will even be thinking about the season.
