If you are like many brides, gearing yourself for a 12-month or more wedding planning period, and next fall 2012 is your target wedding date, take some color cues from the dynamic array you will see this fall.
A Word About Autumn Color
Color is one easy way to tie together your wedding. Gowns, flowers, wedding invitations, table setting accessories, the cake, wedding favors, and more can be coordinated through the simple application of a well-thought out color scheme. For some expert guidance, consult the color combo ideas set forth in theknot.com, which include some of the autumns most popular color choices, like reds, browns and golds. This fall’s hot trends include a surge in jewel tones against traditional fall colors, like magenta and chocolate brown.
But don’t stop there. Autumn offer a much more diverse color palate than you might think. With the right color tones and combinations, some colors you might not automatically associate with fall can be pitch perfect.
Wedding Invitations for Fall
One word of caution when looking at invitations: take care to pay attention to elements other than color. For instance, stay away from overtly springtime florals like tulips or lilacs, even if they come in enticing fall shades. Other organic elements such as vines, acorns or olives might be a better choice.
Here’s a closer look at some gorgeous color palates perfectly suited for fall wedding invitations if you are planning ahead for next year:
- Oranges. Probably the first fall color that comes to mind, theknot.com displays some great orange color combos. While orange and pink is better suited to spring and summer, here are two very different invitation styles and orange color combos from LookLoveSend.com:
|Orange and Green are perfect for fall in Sneha Sheth’s “Decorative Zircon” wedding invitation design.||“Mums” by Bethany Hagans evoke fall’s favorite flower and is available in other fall color choices.|
- Greens. Think about softer, less intense shades like moss or sage instead of limes and springtime grasses.
|Genevieve Gail’s “Boho Birds” are inspired by vintage wallpaper designs and come in this autumn-perfect shade of green.||“Floral Lattice” by Suling Wang is a subtle splash of green that leaves the door open for any other fall accent color.|
