Cayenne Lavender Wedding Color Scheme

Fire up your fall wedding with a cayenne-and-lavender color scheme. The sweetness of the ever-so-popular lavender pastel is instantly spiced up with cayenne red accents. From a bold lace bridesmaid dress to a flaming shoe and a light purple cake with cayenne and gold accents — this is an unexpected, yet stunning theme for an autumn affair.

These hues would look especially great at an ethnic, Moroccan-themed celebration. Picture patterned pillows on the floor for seating, gold beaded tablecloths, and delicious rice and lamb for dinner. It could also work for a more upscale rustic setting like a mountain lodge, tented backyard wedding with foliage in view, or even a country-club celebration. With both its pretty soft tones and punchy finishes, the electric purple and red mash-up is very versatile.
