A Splash of Autumn: Fall 2023 Wedding Color Ideas

When the trees take on new tones, the seasons provide the perfect opportunity to inspire the colors of your wedding. Fall is a time of year that brings about coziness as nature takes over and the hues of your day-to-day shift. Whether you’re looking for a vibrant palette with pops of color or a warm seasonal space, here are some fall 2023 wedding color ideas!

Rich Earthy Tones

Fall is a naturally cozy season; earthy tones are great for a wedding with that same comfy feel. Deep reds and browns with splashes of burnt oranges or mustard yellow can bring out the feeling of Autumn without being too neutral. Try using neutral tones as a canvas with pops of warm color for that natural earthiness of fall.

All Out Autumn

Do you love all of the bright and bold colors of Autumn? Embrace the vibrant oranges and reds of the season and step out of the typical fall palettes to make your wedding one to remember! Set a base with a neutral tone like beige, and then build up the space with florals, candles, and more in your favorite brighter colors of the season.

A Touch of Dark Teal

Looking for something that’s fall with a bit of a twist? Sticking to earthy tones is a great way to style your wedding, but if you want to take it all to the next level, dark teal is a fabulous accent color to mix in. Picture this, bridesmaids in brilliant dark teal dresses with burnt orange florals to tie it all together.

Metallic Accents

Another way to add a luxurious touch to your fall wedding is metallic accents! Set the scene of an elegant autumn night with gold, bronze, or even silver. See the tables sparkle with a sophisticated glimmer of gold orbs to hold your centerpieces or even place cards to help guests find their seats. Cutlery, candleholders, and even chandeliers are perfect metallic accents to enhance your dazzling night.

Light Pastels and Blush

Do you want to throw a fall wedding but aren’t too fond of all the earthy colors? Light pastels and blushes could be the perfect balance to having a fall-fitting wedding without the deep tones. Blush linens topped with extravagant floral arrangements of pastel oranges, pinks, purples, and more will pull out the joy and warmth of the season while keeping a vibrant space for everyone to enjoy.
