  • Wedding: October 2012

We are getting married in October and are doing black, white and deep aqua. I didn’t hesitate because it’s not traditional fall colors. We are getting married in October because we love the the weather that month. It’s the perfect time of year to us. I don’t particularly like the fall colors but never felt pressured to use them because it’s an October wedding. Plus, as the weather keeps getting crazier, October is really like the new September.

I am getting married in October in St thomas and my colors are inspired by stargazer lillies b/c they are my favorite!

 

My colors are fuscia, light pnik and ivory! I also might throw a little red in too….this

is the bouquet that became my inspiration!

I had an October wedding and did fuschia, blush pink, and coral. I think it looked great.

There’s no requirement that you have to do fall colors for a fall wedding!  ๐Ÿ™‚  Do what makes you happy.  I did royal blue, silver, white, and a tiny hint of red for my October wedding.

I struggled with this at first. I am having a June wedding and my color is eggplant, not your traditional June color but, I am adding bright orange and bright pink to make it more summery. My point is – who cares what month it is, have the colors you want in your wedding, it really doesn’t matter as long as you are happy.

There is no rule saying you have to use seasonal colors for your wedding just because its in a certain month.

If you like X and D colors that typically is for Y month and youre getting married in R month, use them anyways.  Only issue would be flowers because some are not available unless you get imported.

I’m October and we are having Purples and Deep Oranges, I love the sharp contrast between the two colours, I think you should have whatever colours you want, doesn’t matter what time of year it is, It is your wedding after all ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s just the type of flowers you need to think about, we are having tulips which are only just available at that time of year in th UK, people see them as more of a spring flower, but I like them so I am having them in October ๐Ÿ˜€

My wedding is in November…my girls are wearing a carbon/charcoal color.. flowers are deep reds and burgundy variations of roses and ranuculus….lots of candle light. My reception is in a ballroom, I wanted a warm, glowing feel.

We’re getting married mid-september and are either doing vintage pastels or jewel tones. Just go with whatever you love! I have to admit though it is kind of frusterating to look up inspiration for fall weddings and see only autumn foliage colors…

Anymore I think anything goes when it comes to weddings. If you don’t want fall colors go with colors you love. I think fuschia/ spa blue and toffee would look really pretty together. Woodsy with just a pop of color in the fuschia. Go for it!
