I think if you want “fall” without harvest colors it’s best to go with bold colors rather than pastels. Navy and a shade of deep red might work, and both colors would work with ivory and black. That blue pattern is pretty but it is anything but fall.

@Coral99:  I think including one harvest color like red or orange could give it a subtle fall feel without being too harvest-y. I love navy, I think it makes everything look classy. 🙂

I was going to suggest navy when I first read you didn’t like traditional fall colors…but I don’t think I like it with the black…I’d have to see it. Your invitations don’t HAVE to match, of course, but I wonder if you could find some with navy instead.

Where is your wedding? That also affects how the colors will come across…I’m in GA, so it’s easier to get away with ‘spring’ colors well into the fall, b/c it’s still so hot and sunny and people still wear spring/summer dresses!

You know what? I don’t think you should worry about the season at all. So many people have season-themed weddings (“winter wonderland,” “fall harvest,” etc.) that doing something colorful and a little different is not wrong! I think it’s a great idea! And it’s a breath of fresh air, when everything in retail is pushing Halloween and Thanksgiving. 

We got married in November (which is deep in the middle of the fall here in Houston, where it stays warm until October) and I just couldn’t get excited about fall colors either. We chose a historic bed and breakfast for our venue, so I wanted to incorporate a vintage-y theme into our decor. I love romantic pastels – blush, mint green, lavender, colors like that – so I ignored the season and had a very romantic, spring-y color palette: blush, gold, champagne, ivory, sage green, and gray… Here’s a photo of the BMs, it gives you an idea of our colors:

We got a lot of compliments on our decor and the colors, and no one pointed out that it was fall. Go with what you love and what your gut tells you.

I love your idea of navy and pale pink – although I think red might look a little sharp next to those two colors. You could use some of your other favorite colors – spend some time on The Perfect Palette, I was so inspired by their mood boards and all of their color palettes!

How do you like these colors?

No, your invitations don’t HAVE to match, people don’t usually pay attention to the colors on the invitation. Especially if you’re looking at black and white invitations – that’s so elegant and simple that I think you could pair those with any color palette at the actual wedding.
