Congrats! I got married in Oct of 2015, October wedding are the best! When I was contemplating uplighting (per husbands request after watching too many wedding shows with me! =) ) I had my photographer, who is also a friend, request that I didnt go too heavy on the purple or red uplighting because it can effect pictures. She showed me some examples of clients of hers and every single reception picture was purple!

So thats just my 2 cents. She said that purple or red would still work, but to try to space them out a little bit. We went with some red/amber uplighting but put some white uplighting in between. PS. Your colors sound beautiful! Happy planning!

Depending on the type of uplights you have access to, they have a TON of different colours. For our wedding, we had a light cool blue white and a pale peachy colour during dinner, and then when we started the dancing we had them all switched to a deep royal blue with turquoise lights in the corners. 

So you could have amber during supper and speeches and then switch to plum for the dancing.

immoneyhoney:  I personally like plum better than burgundy and with amber uplights and champagne/gold accents, I think it will be gorgeous!! 

I’d stick with warm colors if you don’t want to do amber uplights – even like a darker orange would work and look beautiful!

Maybe through some yellow gold pops in there to brighten it up if you need to! I love fall!!

Agree with PP, plum and gold would love beautiful, especially with amber up lighting. It would give off a sort of regal look to your wedding. Something like this.
