So now that I have my lovely venue, I am wondering what my colors should be. Technically, my venue is infused with pink and gold, so I can’t compete with color. I think I should keep centerpieces to ivory or light colors.
I’d like my bouquet to be the same, very light colors…like this:
So my question is – will this look out of place for an October wedding?

I don’t think it would look out of place at all. In fact, it will contrast against the reds, oranges and browns, making your colours pop. I think it is good. Go for it.

my venue had pink and gold hues so i wnr with gold champagne and hints of perrywinkle and blush peach with some mixed metallics.
I think those colors will look great for october- october always makes me think pink since the birthstone gem is pink.

I’m a firm believer in going with whatever colors you like regardless of the season. I mean, does anyone even notice those things. if you like the colors, go with them. “Season colors” are so subjective. here in california we don’t even have seasons so all those color “rules” go out the window.

I think that sounds lovely, and I agree that it will be a breath of fresh air from the usual “autumn” colors (although those are lovely, too!).
I would consider balancing the pinks and pastels with a nice neutral, like a slate gray! Your venue sounds beautiful, btw.

I would try to shift the pinks to more peaches, which I think would like less out-of-place at a fall wedding. Have you seen Mrs. Cowboy Boot’s wedding? She had an October wedding and had amazing peach florals. Do you think something like this could work with your venue?

Mother Nature does not follow man-made rules regarding color shades/combos during the year. Why should you? Use whatever you want and it will be pretty no matter what time of year. If anyone is bothered by it, they can stay home.

thanks for all the suggestions laides.
@kirabee – yes, I have seen Mrs. Cowboy Bot’s wedding, and it was amazing! But I think don’t know if that color scheme would work. Basically…this is the room (well, only the back half of it, since I’m having a very small dinner/reception)
I was thinking simple ivory flowers maybe?

@ember78 – that’s true…I should just go with what I like!

I agree — go with what you like! But if you truly are concerned about the colors, there are plenty of ways you can tie in touches of charcoal, browns/bronzes, or a deep pink to blend more with the season. The room looks really cool!

I saw a little of the peach (light) with the pink, so you could do that if you wanted to tie in the season with your pink. I love pink! I do think going with what colors and things you like should take precedence, but you also want to feel comfortable.
I went to a November wedding which had champagne, pinks, peaches and it was amazing! You could also add in a color that is a touch darker but in the pastellies, if you wanted to make it feel more warm.
I’m sure it will look amazing!

We are doing a cherry blossom theme and I want a light pink bouquet with tons of fluffy, big flowers… so not October, but I don’t care! Go for it!
The only thing that holds us back is that flowers and stuff aren’t really in season for that kind of look. I am trying to find out about cabbage roses and pink esperance roses, as well as pink dahlias to give my bouquet that full look.
