Wedding Wednesday: Autumn Color Picks

I know it’s autumn when, all of a sudden, I have this undeniable urge to dig out all of my leggings and color tights from the deep dark corners of my “cold weather” storage. Today was that day for this autumn-loving photographer. Today’s choice? A pair of cute plum tights. So cozy. So purple. So autumn.

My awesome plum tights got me thinking about my favorite wedding colors for fall. Sure, burgundy, brown and orange are sensible choices for an autumn wedding, but (in my humble opinion) the following selections will add a little more color to a fall wedding while still staying true to this fabulous time of the year.

Plum (of course!):

Okay, guilty as charged: purple is my favorite color. I especially love deep dark purples with all their moody, feminine and classic characteristics. Check out this great wedding on 100 Layer Cake blog for more vintage plum inspiration.

Red Orange:

Not quite red. Not quite orange. It’s red orange! A modern combination with a vintage twist. I think we’ll see a lot more of this color in the coming years. I love this adorable handmade invitation by Paper Dolls.


Fall 2010 was the season of mustard, but I’m not ready to let it go. I say, we keep it around a few more seasons, what do you think?  I adore the grey-brown suit coat with the mustard tie (far left) and these cute shoes from Anthropologie (middle). Oh, and leave it to Martha for some yellow bouquet inspiration (far right). Bright and adorable!

So, yes, those are my color picks for Autumn 2011. What colors do you think are perfect for a fall wedding?
