I’m having a fall wedding and I have a couple of “themes” even though most of the “wedding police” would tell me to pick one. I’m ignoring the rules.

-Autumn theme (so autumn leaves, brown, yellow, orange, reds for wedding website, some decor, ie autumn vines)
-Wine theme (corks for name cards, wine crate for card box, wine bottles for centre pieces, wine stoppers as favours)
-Colours: Chocolate Brown and Cobalt Blue (Wedding party attire)

 

What about a deep purple/aubergine to tie into the fall theme? Warm/darker colours are much mroe fall-ish (yup, it’s a word) than lavender (which I think to be more of a pastal and a spring colour)

What about adding some plum or eggplant to the color choices! It could make it more fall like and add some depth things. google images “purple flowers for fall wedding”

Lavender mixed with eggplant would be perfect for your 9/2011 wedding.  Here is a very pretty inspiration board with those colors.  There is nothing prettier than a variation of different shades of one color.  I think your colors rock!

I’m having a Fall 2011 wedding.  I have found it difficult to find anthign that doesn have fall leaves in it, and no, I’m not feeling it either!!  I think havng the deeper hues of purple is fine, use lavendar and silve to lighten it up abit.  I’m wearing Ivory and using Ivry/Gold as my base pallet.  Haven’t decided on girls color yet, but I’m looking at deepr hues, maybe wine or darker green.  purple also works well with brown, which is definately the base pallet for the fall.  Do your thing!!  I think the abouve pics of bouquets are awesome!! They definately do not say sprng/summer wedding.  In the end, as long as everything looks great togethr, who cares if it wasn’t the PREFERED Fall colors, they were YOUR colors!

By The Way, I think if you over powered the decor in dark purple, it would be way too much.  aving a few dark purple accents in your centerpieces would probably make them that much more stunning.  You have alot of time to play with colors, who knows what we will get to pick from in the next 10 months or so.  I think the silver is a great way to accent the multiple hues of purple.  I’m using gold in mine.  I found a beautiufl silk calla lily in a goldish-orangy-red colors, and actually building around that flower for colors.  I can go with browns, reds, golds, and the new dark orange/brown hues available.

I’m having a winter wedding, but also using lavender….I am still making it a seasonal wedding though by timing in some winter aspects…such as snowflakes…I am going to add a darker color like navy too….

I think its perfectly ok to do the colors you love. I am having a fall wedding but I chose blue,green and white for my colors.

 I want to be different because all the people we are friends with have had fall and winter weddings due to the sport that our husbands are involved in. So I have been to 10 fall and fall colored weddings and Im tired of orange!!! haha, that felt good to say haha.

 Anyways, do what you love, beacause when its all over you will look back and be happy with that choice instead of conforming to the season.

I wouldn’t worry too much about colors matching the season. We had a winter wedding with all spring colors. I can’t help it, I love pink and bright colors, so that’s what we used. It made me happy, and that’s what matters.

There are some great ideas in this thread.

The other thing I’ll mention is that actually meeting with some florists helped MUCH more than I ever thought it would.  Especially at the bigger places, where the have a lot of flowers that they can pull out to help you visualize things.  The meetings really help me solidify my colors

I definitely agree with the deep reds and purples. Like Leslers pics. Totally what I had in mind before seeing the pics. And you can mix some lavendar in with that. Would still be fall, would still be what you love. If you like that combination?
