time of year is rich with colour. For an autumnal wedding there are endless
some are bright and colourful, some are dark and dramatic. Choosing the right
one can be frustrating and if you want to change one or two colours in a
particular palette what colour do you replace it with? What if your favourite
colour doesn’t work? What if you choose a palette but feel it’s too dark? To
help you avoid the stress here are a list of amazing colour combinations
perfect any autumn wedding.
Light blue, white, grey and maroon
You may think that light blue is more of a summer shade but
that’s the beauty of it;
when combined with the right colours it can be suitable all
year round. Grey and maroon are great contrasting colours and white works well
with anything. Perhaps grey place settings on a maroon table cloth with light
blue and white centrepieces. Or grey bridesmaid dresses with white or maroon
accessories will look stunning.
Teal, maroon, lavender and amber
If you think that these colours aren’t suitable to go together
then you can separate them out. For example the bridesmaids could wear teal
dresses and carry maroon bouquets or wear maroon accessories. Amber also
compliments teal beautifully. For the centerpieces lavender and amber will work
well as amber is a typical autumn colour and is brightened up by the soft
Black, orange, purple and emerald green
If you’re considering going for a really dramatic almost
gothic vibe then this colour palette is the best choice. Black goes with pretty
much any shade and orange and emerald green are gorgeous traditional autumn
colours. For the pageboy and the groomsmen black suits with purple pocket
squares and maybe for the bridesmaids purple dresses with black accessories.
Pink, cream, brown and purple
Certainly this time of year can be chilly, dark and dreary
but that doesn’t mean your wedding has to be too! Purple is a lovely colour for
any season but it’s particularly popular for autumn and so is the colour brown.
They can be softened up by the addition of light pink and cream. Consider a
chocolate brown table cloth with cream and purple centrepieces and pink place settings
and seating cards.
Orange, yellow and brown
If you were considering more traditional autumnal hues you
can’t go far wrong with orange and yellow. The best thing is that you can mix
and match different shades of the two colours and it will look wonderful. The
flowergirl would look amazing dressed in a mango coloured dress with a basket
full of yellow flower petals. For the pageboy consider a dark brown suit with a
dark yellow pocket square.
