Wedding inspiration can come from the most unlikely sources — including the poppy, abstract Josef Albers painting seen above. We dreamed up this wedding inspiration board for fall brides based off the bold orange and red colors in Albers's work. The result? A gorgeous autumnal affair. Here's how to pull off the pairing for your own big day:

Clue your guests into your red-and-orange color palette with a modern invitation, like this graphic option from Dauphine Press, where classic letterpress details get a major upgrade with the help of these warm tones.

Consider dressing bridesmaids in a dusty red option, like this knee-length silk chiffon option from J.Crew — the muted take on the color is universally flattering. To keep the bolder tones going, gift your 'maids with a red clutch and a warm gold bangle, filled with orangey-undertones.

For dessert, dress up a classic white cake with deep red details. Go for juicy strawberries, fresh flowers, or sugar blooms for an enticing and original confection.
