I can’t match colors to save my life! I wear black and gray pretty much daily. We are about 8 months out from our wedding and I still haven’t decided on colors yet. HELP?!? We’re getting married October first in a casual/ rustic barn. I want the wedding to feel very casual with the guys in a button up shirts and khakis, girls in casual dresses. I want fall colors to be incorporated and I plan to grow all of my decorations and flowers myself (pumpkins, gourds, squashes, Indian corn, sunflowers). My problem is what color do I put the wedding party in? The shoes will be brown cowboy boots so black is out (I don’t care for brown and black together). My girls will have REALLY dark red and yellow sunflowers for bouquets. I don’t want everything to match too much and thought maybe boys in chocolate brown shirts and girls in navy dresses, I just don’t know if that will all work with the reds/oranges/yellows/browns in the decor, or if all the colors will be overwhelming. Does anyone have any better ideas? I’m open to all suggestions!!

What about a dark eggplant color for the dresses to tie in the fall theme?

I thought about that color. Do you think it would clash with the red sunflowers though?

You could use something in mustard tones. It would be a great base for your flowers. I like this – on the browner side of mustard, rather than the yellow end of the scale.

What about chocolate and a sunny yellow color scheme? One of my BMs was in a wedding like this a few years ago and it turned out gorgeous. They also used a lot of sunflowers. The guys could wear brown suits, girls in yellow instead of brown if you’re worried about it being too matchy matchy.

I’d probably put my girls in burgundy or burnt orange, personally. But that may be too matchy-matchy for you. I tend to like matchy-matchy.

@lessons: I think an eggplant would look gorgeous. I think with the autumn theme that it wouldn’t clash at all. I usually think most colors can go together though if done correctly.

I second the burnt orange. Or maybe just a bright pumpkin orange. Brown would also be lovely.

I agree with the orange, yellow, and reds with maybe an accent of browns especially in october in a barn rustic feel. I think that would be perfect. (i wear grey alll the time. its actually one of my colors! ha)
