I definitely don’t think the season has to affect the colors — fabrics, yes, but not the colors.  We’re doing BLACK in the summer…but adding splashed of super birght accents (orange, purple, light green and red) to keep it late-summer-appropriate!

I have a June wedding and our colors are dark purple, sage-y green and ivory! I guess you could say my colors are kind of fall-ish but I don’t care! 😀

We’re getting married in June on the beach and our colors are turquoise and orange. Turquoise is my favorite color and I would have chosen it no matter when/where the wedding was.

Pick some colors that you like and, like bruschetta said, wait on picking the fabric for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.

We are getting married in October, and I plan to do a deep eggplant as the bm dresses with flowers in the same color with falls colors(oranges, maybe some red or green as well).

The month did somewhat affect what I wanted, but honestly, I’ve always wanted a fall wedding with some sort of purple.

I picked colors sort of based on flowers I knew would be cheap, our wedding is march and I changed yellow and blue to champagne and perrywinkle because I want ranunculus and these pretty purple things my mom had in her yard this year 🙂

  • Wedding: October 2009

I am getting married October of this year, on the 24th. I am doing what I like, and as far as flowers/colors go, I’m not doing any fall colors – I dont really think the fall color scheme suits me. I am, however, having some fall inspired drinks passed. I haven’t picked out our menu yet, I think it will be rather classic, not sure. Probably I will have apple cider shots and mini cider mill donuts being made on the spot in the back and passed, and I looove caramel apples. I guess it is not affecting my colors, or really my theme, but I am incorporating fall stuff into the food …

Tough one. I am an October, but I sort of envy you. One, I think that summer and winter lend themselves to the most vibrant colors. Two, you will have instant inspiration.

Since you need to plan both, I would actually try to find a color scheme that fits both. While you can always edit and alter after you set a date, it would be so confusing to have two completely different styles in your brain as you research.

As long as you are not set on a Christmas style wedding if held in December, I imagine that you could actually choose very similar pallets, with different inspiration. For example, jewel tones fit both winter and summer. In the winter, you would take inspiration from something like fun indoor lighting, while in the summer flowers and birds would be a better inspiration.

Other color schemes that could do both summer and winter:

– anything travel related. Lets say you guys love Paris. A sophisticated and muted color theme, such as grays, blacks, and whites, would be reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower year around. You would just reflect the season with your choice of accent color, such as pink in the summer, or really even pink in the winter (just use different flowers/details).

– anything era related. Some color ideas/themes have no season (an art deco wedding would use the same colors all season). Others would only change with the details. If you want Hollywood 50’s glam, golds, blacks, and red, for example, can go winter or summer, you would just play them differently (winter I would think chandeliers and plunging black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, while summer I would think champagne and sunglasses).

– a carefully thought out nature theme could even share colors. If you did white and green, that would be gorgeous all year round, you would just need to alter how you achieve it.

I’m getting married in October (2010) and my fav color Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses is a deep cobalt blue or horizon blue which I was afraid wasn’t a fall color. So I’m thinking of using the fall colored flowers orange gerbera daisys accented with yellow and greens and maybe even a little blue and hope it all looks good together!
