Hello Everyone,

I am in the process of trying to pick some fall colors out for my wedding in November 2012. Its been hard because I really do not know what colors beside orange and brown are fall colors. Please help me in trying to finalize colors.

Dear Miaca,

There are a bazillion different shades of orange and brown. I suggest you think in terms of a color palette, not just the "usual" one dominant color and one accent color.

My suggestion is to go to a paint store and get a bunch of paint chips in all shades of fall colors. Just pick a bunch that appeal to you.

Then, get home, cut them apart, and mix and match as many or as few as you like. Be sure to consider bright red colors, as they look great in fall color mixes.

I've always thought blue was a snazzy color for fall. These are some pics I photoshopped a while back...

Burgundy is a nice color in the fall too:

And just because it's fall, dont be afraid of the possibility of using green, like in fern and sage types of shades:

Or what about pale pink and ivory, with some muted orange colors, caramel, and a touch of dark chocolatey brown. Like an romantic, antiquey fall color scheme.

And i agree that you shouldnt just pick a couple specific colors and do everything in those colors. Don't be afraid to do multiple shades of coordinating colors (coordinating, not "matching") to make it a really visually stimulating wedding.

Dear CD,

"lol i would TOTALLY love a bumblebee themed wedding... just sayin."

And I would TOTALLY enjoy attending such a wedding.

"Do you, Joe, take Sarah to be your Queen Bee? To take care of her, enable her to just hang around the hive all day and give her your undivided devotion?"

"Do you, Sarah, take Joe to be your Worker Bee? To boss him around, tell him what to do and expect him to wait on you hand and foot?"

It works for me!

Hahahahahaha!

Greens, blues, reds, yellows,purples and white are all great fall colors,particularly if they are of a darker tone. Have a look are some nature photography and look at the colors of the flowers and leaves. Don't forget that "evergreen" shouldn't be ruled out either.

I love all color but, the wedding dress would like more for Blue, purple and white. Cause this color will suite all brides anywhere. So, i suggest this color of wedding dress.

Wedding hair | wedding ceremony music | unique wedding ideas | wedding services | wedding guest accommodations | wedding watch

Colours like marigold and green make perfect autumn wedding between wedding colours and bridal dress because they embody the bright warmth of the season without overwhelming the senses.

Yeah, orange is the most used wedding theme color. But you can have some alterations such as the five colors in the picture.
