We’re doing eggplant and blues. Our date is the day before halloween and we didn’t want anything halloween about our wedding. So we went with what we consider elegant fall colors. Not that orange isn’t, but I guess it “is” in a way the cliche choice for october/nov.

Even though Halloween is my favourite “holiday” I didn’t want my wedding to resemble Halloween or fall.  Our accent colour is sage green.  I would have preferred lime green, but I think it’s much too bright for a Canadian fall wedding 🙂

I love some of your ideas though, I can’t wait to see pictures!

I didn’t want to do anything that screamed fall (e.g. burgundy, burnt orange etc.” so stuck with a pallette that’s still season-appropriate without being too “fall” for our tastes. Our colours are chocolate brown, champagne and apple green with a touch of pink.

I am with you guys that I absolutely love autumn colors but I didn’t want it to look too pumpkin-ish.  So I found this picture and it really was a great balance to me.

We’re doing a lot of browns with kraft paper and burlap, and hints of ivory. Wildflowers will provide all the color 🙂

We’ll also use cream, green, and some yellow gourds as decoration.

We are using Burnt orange, Brown, and adding bronze to make it more fancy. There are also touches of ivory and deep red to brighten things up. I want it to feel like fall. I really stayed away from any bright oranges & blacks to avoid a halloween look. Here is a sample of my bridesmaids dresses to give you an idea.

Oh wait… it posted and I wasn’t finished.  I like mixing in the navy and plums with the red, ornage and gold.  I am also balancing it with lots of ivory flowers.  I have been trying to focus on more “jewel tones” rather than just autumn which still gives you that warm feeling without going over the top.

I’m like the others, fall is my favorite season, but since my wedding is the day before Halloween and in FL we went with some basic colors: chocolate, champagne and blush pink. I wanted something simple after getting overwhelmed by too much color in bridal mags haha Had the wedding been somewhere, where there is actually a change of season we would have embrassed pumpkins and fall leaves!

HI October Brides!

My colors are also probably taboo according to David Tutera but i love them! We are using primarily burnt orange, chocolate brown and champagne. However, in the flowers we are mixing in other colors, sage green, yellow, dark purple, etc.

Fall is a great time of year for a wedding b/c the colors are endless and so rich and i just love them! I can not wait for our day to be here and post some pictures!

I go for my first dress fitting Aug 17th so excited for that too.. okay now i’m rambling a bit…

I think whatever colors you choose will be beautiful… you really can’t go wrong!

My colors are teal, chocolate brown and ivory…adding a little leopard print here and there!  The bridesmaid dresses are David’s Bridal Oasis with truffle wraps/jackets, my dress is ivory and champagne, the flower girl basket and ring bearer pillow are brown with leopard accents, the jewelry is leopard accented, the bridesmaids and my shoes are all leopard print

And…

Shhhh!  They don’t know this yet but the guys are wearing leopard print ties!!!!

I know, goofy and nothing to do with fall, but it is so me!
