What season was your wedding in? And what colors did you use?
Im really wanting ours to be a fall/autumn theamed wedding. I love fall and how it feels so nice outside, the bright vibrant colors of the trees, the smell BUT I HATE the color orange as a wedding color. Ive never liked the color orange except when it comes to the fall season. Ive never liked the color orange in clothing or shoes and orange seems to be the most popular color for a fall wedding.

@cmoest: mine was in the summer and we had cornflower blue and sunflower yellow as our colors.
I am attending a couple fall weddings and neither are using orange. One is using a deep purple and emerald and the other is using a deep blue with yellow. I definitely would not let the color orange be the only reason you don’t have a fall wedding! Just because it’s in the fall doesn’t mean you have to choose orange 🙂 in fact I’ve never actually seen orange at any weddings I’ve attended (even for fall weddings).

I’m getting married next month and there is nothing orange involved in any part of our wedding. I wanted a fall wedding because its my favorite season and I didn’t want to get married when it was hot at all. I didn’t want a fall themed wedding of any sort and I don’t think you have to include autumn colors at all!
Our colors are black, blush, gold and cream.

@cmoest: Mine was in spring and I used pastel pinks, creams, black and neutrals.

Mine is fall.
There are other colors besides orange…
I went to a wedding with orange/brown colors and I wasn’t a fan. But most people don’t use orange.
Pick different colors.
Mine is eggplant, dark red, and bright green.

- Wedding: May 2014 - Madison, WI
Ours will be in spring and our colors are shades or purple, grey, a little blush, ivory, with accents of green.
I am not a fan of orange either. Maybe more of a golden yellow would be nice though, I’ve seen that done with like a chocolate brown. More jewel tones also look pretty. Dark purples, deep emerald greens would also go nicely with autumn colors. Here’s some inspiration pictures for you based on what I was thinking..

Mine is in the Fall but we’re not doing traditional fall colors. I don’t really like golds, oranges, yellows, etc.
Our colors are red, white, and black. So the red could be considered a “fall color” but our color scheme does not scream fall

I’m getting married in 3 weeks, and we are using white/ivory, deep red and brown as our colours. There will be a little bit of orange (as we are having white pumpkins and orange/white gourds on our tables) but that’s it! Incorporating various shades of gold, brown and yellow have a nice fall feel too.

I was married in Late November (right around Thanksgiving)
We did Green and Gold as our colors.

We’re hoping for winter, under the snow. Soooooo romantic. 🙂
Colors, I don’t know ! There will be white of course to remind of snow, black because the lanterns and chairs in the restaurant are already iron black. Plus, my dress will probably be black or have black on it. I don’t know for other colors yet. Probably some purple (which has been my favorite color for years), but more like eggplant tone. And since we want a romantic/vintage feel, we might play with old pink and champagne as discreet accents (in flowers for example), to make it harmonious.
A bit like this (this is not my actual inspiration, but it’s the closest I’ve found) : http://belleandchic.com/wp-content/uploads/gold-and-plum-new-years.jpg

@cmoest: I’m in the spring and my colors will be shades of purple. I’m obsessed with purple, so I’ve always known that regardless of the season I would have purple as my color! But purple is a springy color anyway!
I went to a fall wedding and they used fall colors and it was lovely. There was some orange, but only as little bit of accents, like in some of the flowers or some of the accent frosting on the cake (so it looked like leaves). The bridesmaids wore burgundy, and they also had some browns in their colors. The bridesmaids carried baskets with apples (and other things), it was unique but very season-appropriate. I think you can do fall colors without highlighting orange just fine!

We’re doing traditional fall colors, but I totally get where you’re coming from about orange. It’s kind of an awkward color to work with. My paper flower centerpieces are a mix of fall colors – red, white, orange, and yellow. We could have easily omitted one of those colors and still kept the “fall” feeling, but I personally like the variety. We’re also using navy blue and other neturals because the flower colors are very bright already and I didn’t want to overwhelm things. The bridesmaids will have navy blue dresses and champagne gold accessories (the gold ties in with my dress too). But really, don’t let the season dictate your color choices. I’ve seen all types of color schemes used at all times of year and it looked totally fine 🙂

I don’t think you need to necessarily stick to “fall colors” at a fall wedding. It’s kind of expected if you do brown, yellow, or orange anyway, so why not go outside of the norm? I’m doing purple for a winter wedding, but it’s more of a muted, brown-toned purple, rather than a bright, spring-y purple. I think you could do the same thing with a fall wedding and just sort of mute the color you want to use so it doesn’t scream spring/summer. White, cream, ivory, all of those colors are seasonally wedding-universal IMO too 🙂

Our wedding is in the fall, but is in Florida at the beach so will be a beachy wedding. Our colours are aqua, coral, and silver so not traditional fall colours at all!
