Originally my wedding was set for July 2008, but that’s not happening anymore. We had to switch venues and booked September 2008 in Connecticut. From the beginning, I had slate blue in my head for the bridesmaids color & decided that I would do some shade of blue with lots of white or cream and pops of pale green, kind of lime green but not so bright??
Are my colors going to look right in the fall?? Or are they too summery because I was in summer wedding mode at first??

I think the blue sounds great and if the green is only an accent it will be fine. I thnk that if the dresses were the lime green, then it would be a bit too summery.

Go for it!!!!!!! It’s not like your wedding is October or November — September is still early fall (or late summer, for that matter), and there is no rule that your colors have to "match" the season. The colors should reflect your taste, and it might actually be a pleasant surprise for your guests that the standard rust/brown/orange/red color scheme of fall weddings isn’t present. I’m getting married next September (20th, so still technically the summer solstice ), and I’m going with plum, chartreuse and peacock blue.
If part of you is still concerned, maybe make your green accent more of an olive tone? But really, I think you’re fine! Anything goes these days, and I like when people stray from the expected. I say dare to be different

Your colors sound so pretty and different, so please don’t change a thing! Plus, September is sort of fall but sort of summer. I think you can go with either summer or fall colors. Personally, I think fall colors in fall is redundant–the leaves speak for themselves, so why do we need to dress everyone like the leaves?! 🙂 My wedding is november and my colors are plum purple, apricot, and gold with green and spice accents. The season matters to some extent–I would have picked different colors for Spring or Summer–but only to an extent. So do what you like!

I’m a fall bride as well – and I was concerned as to our modern choices of color fitting in with the season as well. However, I’ve decided that I’ll make it more fall and still keep it modern by using white pumpkins & gourds and spray painting acorns & pinecones silver to match. That way my black and white damask with green accents still works!

While I love traditional fall colors (they are so rich and alive), I, too, have chosen to go against the grain for my color scheme. Our wedding is in just a few weeks (10/5) – we’re having sage green, lilac, cream and dove gray. They will be a nice departure from the expected fall colors.
Chose the colors you love!

September is kind of mid-season to me, where you can really have (if you’re worried about it) fall or summer colors.

I think it sounds great!
I had a hard time, because the traditional "autumn colors" aren’t really me. And since I live in Phoenix, we don’t have much of a fall anyways! LOL!
So, go for it!

My cousin had colors like yours-only her blue was more of a turquoise. Her wedding was just on September 1st. It’s still summer then! Besides, it’s your wedding and you should do whatever you want. I have people telling me they don’t like my colors but I really don’t care because they can pick their own colors when they get married! If you like the colors, I say go for it!

I think slate blue is a beautiful color for a fall wedding. It’s not a bright springy color; it’s a warmer color so will work perfectly in the late summer/early fall weather of the Northeast.

I am getting married in the south October and I am using slate blue, too! I was also worried that it might be too summery but I am pairing it with merlot and it really makes it feel appropriate for fall. My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are slate blue with merlot sashes and flowers in berry tones– a good transition palatte, I think. Go with what you love– most of the pics won’t show the outside anyway and the pics will be what you have years from now!
