Fall Wedding Color Palettes

TL;DR ~ Just because you have a fall wedding doesn’t mean you have to use autumn wedding colors. From purple to blue, opt for unique tones for your big day.

Fall Wedding Colors for Your Autumn Event

Harvest wedding ideas are a favorite, and we’ve featured quite a few recently. Take a peek at some that have gorgeous colors to inspire your own elegant autumn wedding.

1. Black Autumn Wedding Colors

Although black is associated with Halloween, your fall wedding doesn’t have to be spooky in order to use the hue. It’s a perfect base color to use in invitations and other accents throughout your autumn wedding theme. Plus, it goes with just about any color.

Dark tones can create a truly elegant backdrop, and they pair beautifully with other rich tones. Red, aqua, and royal blue all come together in a striking autumn wedding palette.

2. Red Harvest Wedding Ideas

Tones of burgundy, gold, and rust abound in the fall. Although red is often associated with winter, get ahead of the season and use it for a fall wedding. Crimson is a high-impact tone that should get more usage in autumn weddings.

It is easily placed with black. However, it’s quite stunning when paired with its neighbors, such as hot pink and fuchsia. Use it sparingly or make it a focus. Either way, it’s a gorgeous color to incorporate into your rustic fall wedding.

3. Purple Elegant Autumn Wedding

Plum is often considered an autumn hue, which makes it ideal to include in your fall wedding colors. Go off script a bit and combine a variety of neutrals with various shades of purple to create a high-impact look.

4. Orange Rustic Fall Wedding

With pumpkins being the earmark of the season—hello pumpkin spice—it’s no wonder that many couples choose the tone. However, don’t feel as though pumpkins are the only way to incorporate a terra cotta feel.

The rustic fall wedding below had a beautiful, monochromatic color palette. It’s so lovely against the backdrop of sparse foliage.

Green goes with just about anything. After all, have you ever seen a plant that didn’t match its stem? Pair green with other fall tones, such as orange, burgundy, and brown.

Of course, you could be extremely unique and opt to pair green with pastel tones. What a refreshing take on autumn wedding colors. So beautiful!

6. Hot Pink Tones for an Autumn Wedding

Believe it or not, hues of fuschia and hot pink can do wonders for a fall wedding. Adding the color in with greenery and plum tones can really create a spooky—yet beautiful—vibe.

Use the color in mass, or pepper it throughout your bouquet. Either way, it adds a bit of brightness to an otherwise deep, dark color palette.
