@seaofgrace:  I think this could work if you style it right.

Are you going to have everything indoors?

What does your venue look like?

I’m using your original color palette (plum, gold, and cream) in April. At first I thought it would be weird, but its all indoor at an old 20’s ballroom, so it fits fine. I think colors should match the venue more than the season.

Yes — all of our colors were fall colors. We had all of the bridesmaids/groomswomen choose their own dresses to have a bunch of color instead of having any decor. It ended up looking really nice.

@seaofgrace:  I think the colors can work in the fall it really depends on how you execute your decor design.  Golds make things warm so I think it will come together well.

Our colors don’t match our season, at all. Our october 31st wedding will be very white, black and pink!

And we’re okay with it!

I feel like gold, cream, orange can look very fally. I guess it depends on how you do it. I am imagining gold leaves and things.

@seaofgrace: I hear ya! You could use more of the gold considering the time of year, I think that will work well. I wanted red and aqua colours. I got married in June and thought the red would be too heavy so used aqua as the main colour, if I had got married in December say I would have used red as the dominant colour. It’s something to be mindful of, but there are always endless ways to make it work for you.

@seaofgrace:  I think you should go with the colors you love and who cares if they aren’t “fallish” enough.

Our wedding is in Sept and I did want fall colors but I didn’t want too many colors, just 2 or 3 at the most.  After a lot of back and forth we decided on orange and gray as our main colors and red accents.

Our colours are all shades of autumnal colours (we’re having a multicolour theme, so purple, blues, dark pinks, reds and burnt umber etc) but I saw your inspiration pics and I actually think your scheme works quite well for autumn! I only chose autumnal colours as our theme because I love those colours anyway lol. I think your scheme should match your personal taste or your venue more than just the season of the wedding 🙂

@seaofgrace:  Your colors are very similar to what I orgionally wanted…Light pastels:) I am having summer wedding, so thought these colors would work for me, but I actually decided to go with a neutral palette that too me looks more like fall than spring, but I don’t care because it is my wedding.  So don’t worry about any “rules” it’s your wedding:)

My vote is to use the colors you love, regardless of the season. 🙂

@seaofgrace:  Thank you for posting this, I wish I saw it sooner.  I’m stuggling with this too, for my late april spring wedding.  The venue does not call for spring colors at all, and I’m feeling more and more like using a lot of black, gold, white and red.  

@lollygagon:  “I think colors should match the venue more than the season” Agreed!  I don’t know how that doesn’t make the most sense.  But I’m finding that most people don’t feel this way, at least the ones I’ve talked to about my own wedding.

Nope, we are going with aqua and black. The time of the year won’t/wouldn’t change that since it’s both of our favourite colours.
