What about hot pink and chocolate brown.  Those were colors I was going to use but Fiance said NO PINK.  I also wanted lime green and chocolate brown but Fiance said no to that as well. 

The possibilities are really endless, just because its fall doesn’t mean you have to use fall colors.  Orange and pink are really cute together (like bright summery orange and pink).  I think it would mix the fall wedding with a not so fall color scheme.

Or think about adding turquoise to the mix.  There are so many ways you can have colors you like that are fallish, but then add a contrasting color that pops and won’t make your gag reflexes work overtime.

Unless you want a very “fall” theme, you can do whatever colors you want. I am using orange, but my main color is dark purple.

You can do any color you want for any season, you don’t need to follow the season colors.

I don’t like the traditional fall colors either so I went with darker blue, with some apple green throughout.  Bridesmaids are in blue with silver shoes and accessories.  Choose whatever colors you want!

My main color is dark purple, like eggplant, with burnt orange and deep red accents in the bouquets and centerpieces. Use whatever colors you want and if you want to highlight the season then tie it in somewhere else, like favors, table numbers, thumbprint tree guest book. Or use pastel yellows, oranges, greens, light browns.

Fall colors are not just orange. Fall colors are jewel tones: Purple, Dark Blue, Dark Greens, Orange (I would go with a burnt orange), Gold, Mustard Yellow, Chocolate, tans, Champagne, and many many more. You can really do anything with the colors for a Autumn wedding as long as you dont do a leaves theme…that is when you really have to stick with the oranges, burgundy, and golds color. I love the purple and green color scheme you just posted! I think it would be a great touch to add a light pink in so that the wedding scheme didnt look so dark!

@Stellar Magnitude: The color swatch you posted was pretty much what I was thinking would be nice for fall. And those colors are definately appropriate for the FQ. I think it will be lovely!

I also did not want “fall” colours!  We are doing black and white damask with Teal and Deep Purple (like eggplant)!  I think any colour that is not like a pastel is totally fine!

I’m doing black and ivory with warm metallic accents and loads of candlelight. Can’t stand the fall wedding theme! Champagnes and deep, rich purples are always pretty too, I think…
