I’m not a huge coral fan personally, but I think navy and burnt orange could be lovely.

I love navy and burnt orange! I almost did that. My wedding was early September and I did Navy and Ivory with touches of greenery.

I think both would be gorgeous! Navy and coral is one of my favorites but the burnt orange is probably more fall. If you’re using one of those colors for BMs, I would say both navy and coral are broadly flattering whereas burnt orange is going to be flattering to a narrower range of complexions. If this is a priority to you, I would also consider how any accessories/bouquets you’re wearing in this color would go with your complexion as they will be close to the face. Obviously pick whatever color you want but something to consider if that is important to you.

I think of coral as a summer color so I would do navy blue and burnt orange, but I wouldn’t put my bridesmaids in orange.

I always think of football when I see navy and orange together, but I’m from Illinois (bears) then lived in Denver for a long time (broncos). I don’t think coral is too summery, but I seem to be in the minority here. At the end of the day, pick the colors you like, it’s your wedding and who cares what season it is.

I prefer navy and burnt orange over navy and coral for a fall wedding. Although you can use colors any time of year, it does help to set the feeling for your wedding if you use colors of the season.

I do love pewter and burnt orange though. It has a more sophisticated edge to it.

If you chose pewter, the men could wear grey suits, perfect for the season.
