Ok ladies, I need some opinions. First off I haven’t set a date yet since the fiance works out of state for most of the year. However his boss has said for me to just set the date and not to worry about whether he’ll be working or not. I was going to try to shoot for sometime in November. But, I’m having a hard time on picking out the colors! I really wanted to do a very romantic feel with very light pinks, ivory, and splashes of lavendar and light green. Think Shabby chic or Marie Antoinette. I’m just worried this will look silly since it will be fall. We could also do the wedding in January and I was thinking light colors might be better then. Any advice or color suggestions? I just need to set a date so I can get all the planning rolling! HELP!

I love those colours but they are really spring colours can you get married in March or April?

I actually think those colors would be lovely for November OR January… I tend to think of September and October as prime “fall” wedding colors that are a little darker but by November (at least in the northeast) there is a very pale, cool, beautiful palette going on outside and it would be gorgeous to create for an inside wedding as well!
Light neutrals like pale pinks and ivories are pretty season-less and I think both would work for either November or January…I’m guessing there could be a greater potential for a snowstorm in January in OK rather than November so I would vote for a November wedding. Plus, it’s the off-season so you should be able to get some great deals!
In short, I love that your color scheme and I think it’s totally cool for the season!

I think you can totally do those colors, especially if you do them in heavier fabrics, like satin, instead of summery fabrics like chiffon. I think it’ll look great 🙂 And it’ll be different from all the other weddings going on at that time! I agree with trail mix, that I might stick more with light neutrals, like light pink, ivory, champage, dove gray, etc. rather than light purple or green. But if want to include those, I’m sure they’ll fit in beautifully.

You can totally do them. I totally agree with Trail mix about November not being prime fall. I know that were I’m from November looks more like winter. Plus there are no real rules about colors anymore! Good luck

As Hilsy said, you can do the colors if you pick them up with other seasonal details. Just pull inspiration from both colorboards like your own and winter weddings (photogs’ blogs are a great place to start) so that it has a balanced feel.
PS: the Marie Antoinette pink has lots of cute winter inspiration, and green is certainly a cool enough color to pull it off! Think petit four squares and heavy silk. 🙂
