Three Awe-Inspiring Colour Palettes for an Autumn Wedding

This season offers so much beautiful inspiration and Autumn weddings are always going to be utterly gorgeous. It is no wonder it's becoming such a popular time of year for couples to say 'We Do'. One of the best thing about Autumn weddings is the fact that they suit any style of celebration. Whether you're dreaming of a truly rustic affair with warm, orange tones or a luxurious and lavish celebration with a rich and vibrant colour scheme, it'll fit in beautifully with the Autumnal surroundings. Wrap up warm, grab a cosy cup of coffee and discover three of the most popular colour palettes for the season ahead...


Traditionally, Autumn conjures up thoughts of cosy browns, burnt oranges and deep reds. We͛ve given this gorgeous colour scheme a modern makeover. Inspired by fine art weddings, we͛re swooning over the thought of a pale Autumn palette using light peach, delicate green and dusty blue hues. This wedding theme is all about elegance, and it͛s a wonderful choice if you͛re a self-confessed romantic at heart. It should be soft and delicate, using materials such as embroidered lace and layer upon layer of tulle.

Have you ever considered rocking a subtly coloured gown on your big day? Gowns in blush pink, dusty rose or barely-there peach are a beautiful choice for this colour palette. Alternatively, you could incorporate your colour scheme into your aisle style by donning a pretty bridal flower crown.

When it comes to your wedding stationery, opt for watercolour invitations with frayed edges and hand-written calligraphy. We recommend keeping the same style of stationery throughout your special day so that it looks totally coordinated. This really is such a romantic option for your Autumn wedding, don͛t you think?


A luxurious jewel-toned colour palette is guaranteed to capture your heart. Opt for rich purple, burgundy red, emerald green and plush navy. You could even add a splash of mustard yellow for vibrant touch. This heavenly colour palette works perfectly with ultra-divine materials such as velvet, satin and silk. Set the scene with your wedding invitations, a garnet red ribbon will add a fabulous finishing touch to your stationery and it͛ll let your guests know what to expect on the big day. Why not tie your theme in together by wrapping a long velvet ribbon in various colours around the stems of your bouquet?

We love the idea of a sumptuous lounge area at your venue for your guests to enjoy a signature cocktail or two. We suggest hiring a couple of vintage armchairs and decadent couches, with an antique-style rug and coffee table. Metallic vases overflowing with deep red roses and trailing greenery will make statement centrepieces for your tables, while tall candles in various jewel hues will give your venue a romantic ambience. Work in luxe metallic such as gold and copper for a hint of understated glamour.


If a rustic woodland affair sounds right up your street, listen up folks! A colour palette consisting of dark, forest green and lots of wooden details will create an enchanting theme for an Autumn affair. This would look particularly magical if you͛re tying the knot in a forest setting, or simply if you want to bring the outdoors in. The perfect fit for a country barn wedding, we suggest decorating your wedding venue with lots of long wooden trestle tables lined with wild foliage and greenery.

Consider adorning your tables with lots of tea lights and candles for a warm glow as the evening draws in –you could even hang dainty fairy lights across the trees. Just think of all of the magical photographs! Weathered wooden ladders decorated with your favourite trinkets will add a personal touch to your big day, while rustic wooden pallets can be used as part of your seating plan or for woodland signs.
