wedding color help!!!
Posted: Apr 17, 2011 12:07 PM

hi,
i need help trying to figure out color schemes for my fall wedding. My original plan was to go for the traditional reds, oranges, yellows, or browns; however, my fiance added yesterday how he thinks we should go with green, pink, and brown seeing how they incorporate our favorite colors.
so my main dilemma is CAN BROWN PINK AND GREEN BE USED FOR A FALL WEDDING or should those colors stick to mostly spring and summer..

any advice is greatly appreciated :)
thanks!!

I second Pharm! I had a spring wedding and didn't use "spring" colors. I like the idea of using all 3. Maybe, you can do primarily pink and brown and have green as an accent. Or any combination sounds nice.

dear Heather,

For some reason brides are hypnotized into thinking they can only use two colors in their color scheme.

Think, instead, of a color palette. Think of all those gorgeous fall colors (reds, oranges, browns, yellows) and add green (also a fall color) and pink accents.

Think of a fall forest with pink birds or pink flowers here and there.

It works.

What I always suggest is to go to a paint store and get a whole bunch of color chips. Cut them apart, then mix and match until you get a selection of colors that are pleasing to you. Don't get locked in to the usual (boring) one dominant color and one accent.

I would like to think a wedding should be what pleases the bride and groom. so if you choose to have it during the fall season then have it then with the colors of your chose and not what is traditional or what is expected of you. Plan this wedding with one thought in mind; no future regretes! So take your soon to husbands advise and go with pink, green and brown. CONGRADULATIONS AND GOOD LUCK WITH THE PLANNING!

I agree with some places here. Firstly, if you & your FH would like to go with the 3colors, then I'd say just go whatever you like,it's complete your wedding. Secondly, giving 3colors themes, it's a fresh idea for most of bride-to-be,at least for me ;-D, as I always think I should choose my wedding to be purple, orange,etc,whatever, just only focus on one single color. That's exactly right - you can pick out the color such as brown, which is autumnal color as an accent, then others to complement the theme, I think it'll turn out to be perfectly matched. Lol.

hmmm, i think these two colors are linked to spring and summer. As you know, spring is the beginning of one year and everything begins to rebirth. Pink and green is the symbol of these two seasons. And i think these two colors is much easier to find in spring and summer than in winter and autumn. Hope you will get your dream wedding dress soon. Best wishes!!!

I say absolutely! I had a fall wedding as well and my all time favorite color is peach. I love the use of brown with a really bright, vibrant color like peach or light blue or even a sage green. I decided on a brown and peach color scheme for my wedding. My favorite item was my save the dates from Wedding Paper Divas. I went with this one here. You can even choose custom colors for most of these, so you should play around with all your favorite colors with browns! Let us know what you come up with!

Black and white is a good combination of wedding colors. Like the wedding couples are wear a Black and White dress they look beautiful. I think this my opinion of wedding color.
