You don’t need to match the colors of the season – you’re the bride, you can pick whatever colors you want. Your friend is right, though, those colors are most often seen in the spring rather than the fall… the only problems I can forsee with using those colors in the fall are [1] they may not match as well with nature’s decoration – changing autumn leaves and all, and [2] stores tend to sell things in colors by season, so you may have a harder time finding things to match your color scheme.

Otherwise, they’re pretty colors, and I say do whatever you want. πŸ™‚

I say go for it!

I was going to have my pink, white and silver wedding in late september (but our date got pushed back to August) and I didn’t care – it was what I wanted my whole entire life I was going to change it for the season! I really don’t think it matters and i think you should do what you love!

I say do as you wish.  πŸ™‚  if you want neon orange and red as your colors and to get married underwater, then do it… I hope this isn’t what ur planning (hehe).  The point is that it’s ur day and it should be how YOU want it.  As for you not being able to find things in your colors in the fall, this may be true BUT you’replanning well enough in advance that when spring rolls around next year and these colors are plentiful you can start picking stuff up that you need πŸ™‚  We did this with our favors, we wanted pink m&m’s.  Well stores don’t sell bags of plain pink m&m’s at a decent price (yes Michel’s has them but they’re small and retardedly high!) close to our July wedding date so we bought the bags in February… Valentine’s Day and Breast Cancer Awareness month were a PERFECT time for us to find the 1 lb bags for a good price… just shop around and remember it’s YOUR day not theirs!  Good luck!

I’ve always disagreed with that whole school of thought of pastels for spring and orange and brown for fall.  Do whatever you want.  NO ONE is going to be leaving  your wedding saying “omg I can’t believe they used spring colors at a fall wedding.”  I had always known what colors I wanted and they are more suited for winter but we will not be getting married in the winter.  so what?

I also suscribe to the school of thought that says you whatever colors you want to use!  What ever floats your boat!

Oh yeah, and to contrast: I’m having deep, fall colors in May – if you do your spring colors in the fall, we can just consider it a trade-off. πŸ™‚

You don’t have to let the season dictate what colors you choose.  The day is more about you (plural) than it is the weather, right? So go with your gut.

Those sound beautiful!  Like you’re ready to welcome winter! 

Maybe consider adding a jewel tone blue or purple to “autumn it up” a little bit?  But otherwise, no, I don’t think colors have to match the season at all!

Nah, I don’t think the colors have to match the season at all. Pretty scheme!

Don’t even worry about it. My wedding’s in September and we’re totally doing greens, pinks, whites… you know, light springy colors. Anyone telling you what colors you should choose, needs to find something more important to occupy their time!

Go for the colors you love!  You’ll be happy with it and everyone will love it.  You don’t have to use typical fall hues for a fall wedding!

Our’s don’t match the season. I didn’t care when the wedding is, I’m going to have my pink!
