Fall Wedding Color Palettes

Planning your wedding begins with choosing the perfect theme, a decision that sets the stage for your special day. Long before the possibility of an engagement or even entering into a relationship, many of us find ourselves dreaming about the colors that will grace our big day! However, when the moment finally arrives and wedding planning becomes a reality, the task of selecting the perfect colors can be quite overwhelming. This is where we come in to help.

When it comes to a fall wedding, the array of color choices is vast. However, knowing the ambiance you desire helps you narrow down what to mix and match. It is important to remember that fall colors are not only limited to shades of orange and brown. You can explore alternative color combinations and still capture the cool and timeless vibe of autumn – while infusing your own unique style into the celebration!

You can think of the different aspects of fall: autumn leaves, chestnuts, harvest of crops and vegetables, apple orchards, cinnamon & spices, and many more! Choose one and make a list of colors it reminds you of – then you’re off to a good start!

Inspirations for your Fall Wedding Color Palette

We did the exact same thing and found some weddings that match the theme. Let us take you to one fall palette at a time and see which one is the best fit for you!

1. Rustic Harvest

Immerse yourself in the colors of Rustic Harvest. Imagine the shades of burnt sienna and terracotta like the falling leaves and cozy autumn days. Pair them with chocolate browns and golden ochre to create a palette that perfectly captures the essence of harvest time. This rustic blend of colors definitely created a comforting and inviting atmosphere for Jazmine and Stuart’s wedding day at Ma Maison!

2. Autumn Leaves

There’s nothing like the classic Autumn Leaves theme to capture the essence of fall. Think of warm shades like orange, red, and golden yellow. Add in rustic browns and touches of green for a natural feel, completing your fall wedding palette. Lynda and Brice had such striking yet refreshing colors on their wedding day at Hayes Hollow, Spring Branch.

3. Corn Maze

The rustic charm of a Corn Maze is such a delightful color palette. Think of the the golden allure of cornstalk yellow, the earthy comfort of vibrant greens, and the grounding warmth of rustic brown. Casey and Marshall had such a refreshing and aesthetically pleasing wedding at Pecan Springs Ranch! Definitely a great wedding inspo!

4. Apple Orchard

Capture the charm of an apple orchard with this theme. Picture soft pinks, peach tones, and apple reds that evoke a fresh and romantic atmosphere. Combine them with earthy greens and browns for a whimsical celebration. You can also use colors that remind you of an apple tree: red, orange, green, and brown — just like Lindsey and Justin’s Wedding at Villa Antonia.

5. Pumpkin Spice

Create a cozy and nostalgic ambiance with the Pumpkin and Spices theme. Use warm shades like pumpkin orange, cinnamon brown, and mustard yellow. You can even add in any color of spices that you can think of such as a nice plum or burgundy shade! Tercei and Josh had such a beautiful and timeless fall wedding at Pecan Springs Ranch.

Tip 1: Your Color Palette Should Depend on YOU

Always remember that picking the color palette for your big day should be based on what you like and what reflects your personality and style as a couple. Let go of the worries that others may not like or appreciate the theme of your wedding. This is your big day. When you are surrounded by the people who love you and support you, they will cheer for you and cry happy tears with you on your wedding day – regardless of the colors. So choose the palette that speaks to you!

Tip 2: Choose the Right Venue

Next, make sure that you have a venue that will match (or exceed) what you have in mind. Whether you want it to be indoors or outdoors, whether it be in the city or in the countryside, Texas has plenty of venues for you to choose from. PhotoHouse Films has worked in the majority of the wedding venues in Austin and memorized the in and outs of the places well, guaranteeing that we can capture every moment of your day smoothly. 

Tip 3: Incorporate Fall into your Wedding

Once you have the palette picked out and the venue fixed, it is time for you to list down all the ways you can incorporate fall into your wedding! Just like what you have seen in the photos (or in wedding inspirations you probably have already seen online), each detail helps bring the whole thing together. Here are some of the elements of your wedding that will really carry your theme:

  1. Bridesmaids’ Dresses 
  2. Groomsmen’s Pocket square boutonnieres
  3. Bouquets and Floral Arrangements
  4. Table Settings
  5. Stationery/Invitations
  6. Seating Plan
  7. The Guests’ Attire
  8. Cake 

Tip 4: Share it with your Team!

Whatever you envision, share that with your wedding planner. They have coordinated multiple weddings with all kinds of themes – especially fall! They will introduce you to the best people for the job – your florist, cake artist, photographer, videographer, stationery designer, rental company, etc. Just like your color palette, choose vendors who are also the right fit for you!

Having a creative and thoughtful team of vendors who get your vision will help you make your fall wedding dreams come true and turn out even better than expected!
